Jaguars Move to 2-0 in Peach Belt Play With Win Over Ospreys

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.  - The University of North Florida men's basketball team dropped a defensive struggle to Augusta State Wednesday night, falling for the first time in Peach Belt Conference play, 62-54 at the UNF Arena.

Neither team shot better than 40 percent from the field and combined for 45 turnovers. The foursome of David Siebrands, Chris Harriman, Patrick Curran and Jermale Wilkerson led the way for Augusta, with Siebrands scoring a team high 17 points.

Michael Drayton was the only Osprey to score in double figures, as he had a game high 21 points and hit four of six three pointers. Mark Riley followed with nine points for UNF, while Donny Lotz ended with eight.

The Ospreys found themselves playing catch up most of the night, as they fell behind 10-0 in the first 4:30 of play. Three-pointers by Drayton and Riley helped UNF climb out of its early hole and into a brief lead at 14-12, then again at 19-16. Augusta went ahead shortly thereafter, taking a 23-22 lead at the 5:01 mark. Both teams went cold from there and Augusta went into the locker room with a 25-23 advantage.

The Jaguars would never relinquish the lead in the second half, taking advantage of an 11-0 run and holding off a late UNF charge. The win evened ASU's record at 2-2 this season and moved the team to 2-0 in the PBC, while the Ospreys fell to 2-2 overall and 1-1 in conference play.
