Miami's Offense Carries Redhawks to Victory over Jackson St 95-78

(Ryan Luster)

by Tim Daniel

Miami's ball movement leads the team to an impressive victory over Jackson St.

Morgan Safford had his career high with 26 points, using his ability to cut to the rim to either finish or draw a foul and go to the line.

The Redhawks, though a young team, certainly flash a strong ability to shoot the ball. As a team, they shot 14/28 from three-point land while also having six players score in double figures.

Freshman Ryan Mabrey and Billy Smith combined for 29 points while shooting 10/16 from the floor together, and both hit four three-pointers to stretch the floor.

Coach Travis Steele mentioned how pleased he is with the team's ability to shoot but wants to see the team rebound better, and also get more stops.

Steele was always very high on Kills (three defensive stops in a row without letting the offense score) during his time at Xavier. This was a principle he brought with him to Miami, tonight the Redhawks only had one.

Up next for Miami, another home game at Millett Hall this Saturday at 1:00 PM EST. Indiana State is currently 6-1, but do face Drake tomorrow before they head to face the Redhawks.
