PRINCESS ANNE, Md. -- Kyle Kager scored 15 points and pulled down seven rebounds to lead American over Maryland-Eastern Shore 71-58 on Sunday.
American used a 10-point run early in the game, behind treys by Schoof and Reed, to take control of the game en route to a 39-27 halftime lead.
The Hawks were able to cut the lead to seven on a Baxter layup with 4:50 left in the game, but got no closer down the stretch.
With the Suns drafting Tyler Ulis, they now have five guards on their roster who attended Kentucky.
NBA fans will be looking forward to their newest players making plays like this next season.
Tim Legler and Brad Daugherty analyze Ben Simmons and Brandon Ingram, the top two picks in the NBA draft, and agree that Simmons will have a more immediate impact.
