STATESBORO, Ga. (AP) C.J. Reed had 16 points and five assists to lead sharp-shooting Georgia Southern in a 70-57 upset victory over Davidson Monday night for its first Southern Conference win of the season.
Reed was 7-of-15 shooting and 2 of 4 from 3-point range as the Eagles (7-10, 1-3) made 53.1 percent (26 of 49) from the floor and 5 of 10 from deep. Eric Ferguson added 14 points and Marvin Baynham had 10.
Georgia Southern took control with an 11-1 run midway through the second half.
The Eagles outscored the Wildcats 26-10 in the paint and 23-11 off the bench.
Davidson (9-7, 4-1) had been in sole possession of first in the SoCon's South division, but fell into a tie with the College of Charleston.
The Wildcats shot 36.4 percent (20 of 55). Chris Czerapowicz scored 13 points, and Nik Cochran had six points and six of the team's 12 assists.
The Nationals aren’t expected to re-sign third baseman Anthony Rendon after they locked Stephen Strasburg into a seven-year, $245 million deal Monday, but their competition just got stiffer with the news that the Angels are interested in the two-time Silver Slugger.
The Angels’ main target appears to be Gerrit Cole but they could turn to Rendon if they’re outbid by a team like the New York Yankees or Los Angeles Dodgers. Rendon has also been connected to the Dodgers, Texas Rangers and Philadelphia Phillies and is reportedly interested in signing a seven-year deal.
Nationals President Mike Rizzo said at a press conference Monday that “there’s ways to fit players in” when speaking about Rendon. His comments refuted an earlier statement made by principal owner Mark Lerner to NBC Sports Washington, to whom he said the Nationals “can really only afford to have one” of Strasburg or Rendon.
It’d be a surprising move if the Nationals did bring Rendon back, but everything remains possible at this point.
