AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Six players scored in double figures as Augusta State completed a Peach Belt Conference sweep with a 103-56 rout of UNC Pembroke Saturday afternoon at George A.

With the victories, the Jags improve to 9-6 overall and 5-2 in the PBC while the Lady Jaguars move to 10-4 overall and 5-2 in league play. UNCP remains winless on the season at 0-15 and 0-7, while the Lady Braves fall to 5-8 and 1-6.
 
Junior forward Patrick Curran and junior guard Ben Butler paced the way for ASU with a game-high 16 points each. Senior forward Marcus Johnson and junior guard Jermale Wilkerson posted 12 points each, while senior forward David Siebrands added 11 and freshman guard Dean Brebner chipped in 10.

Matthew Hubbard, Anthony Crank and Desi Crisp each tallied 10 to lead the Braves. 
 
ASU immediately jumped out to a 9-0 lead in the first 57 seconds and never looked back. The Jags forced 23 turnovers, including 12 in a first half in which they shot 68 percent from the field and sank eight three-pointers. For the game, the hosts connected on 57 percent of their shots and posted 15 steals.

ASU led just 46-40 following a jumper by UNCP's Ebony Orr at the 8:29 mark. But two free throws from Sabrina Jones sparked an 8-0 run and the Jags went on to outscore the Lady Braves 17-7 over the final 7:04 of the contest.
