NEWBERRY - The Newberry College men's basketball team looks to bounce back from a 92-86 loss to Lenoir-Rhyne on Wednesday as they travel to take on the Brevard College Tornados on Saturday afternoon inside Boshamer Gymnasium at 4 p.m.

This was his fourth consecutive game scoring more than 20 points. Mitch Riggs added 17 points and four rebounds and Gerald Evans contributed 10 points and six assists.

On the season, Newberry remains second in South Atlantic Conference action at 7-2. Smith averages 16.1 points per game and 3.8 rebounds. Riggs pours in 12.7 points per game to compliment his 3.0 assists per game. Evans continues to lead the team in rebounds with 4.2 and assists with 3.9.
