Although the Flight returned to Tampa with an improved roster, the Rebels were able to set the tone early. The game started with an ally-oop from point guard Jonathan Brown to Matt Kendrick, who also set a new team record with 10 blocks in addition to scoring 21 points. Aubrey West had an outstanding third quarter on both ends of the floor, drawing a charge on the defensive end while scoring 8 points during the period. Forward Shun Watson provided the dunk of the game as he caught a long baseline pass and finished the play with a thunderous one hand slam as the Rebels prevailed 118-74.
The Rebels return to action this Saturday as they welcome the Palm Beach Titans. The game will be played at Freedom High School and will tip-off at 8pm. Please visit www.tampabayrebels.com for additional information.
