South Bay Routs Austin, Improves to 3-0

By Joey Ramirez | November 12, 2017

The South Bay Lakers had no trouble protecting home court on Saturday, leading by as many as 37 points in a beatdown of the Austin Spurs at the UCLA Health Training Center.

Seven Lakers scored in double figures during the 110-82 victory, while the team improved to 3-0 on the year.

No Laker singlehandedly dominated, as Los Angeles assignee Thomas Bryant led the team with 15 points in 22 minutes.

He helped bury any chance of an Austin comeback by scoring 10 points in the third quarter on two dunks, an and-1 layup and a 3-pointer.

Andre Ingram (three 3-pointers) and Stephen Zimmerman (5-of-5 field goals) added 13 points apiece, while point guards Alex Caruso and Scott Machado directed the show with nine assists each.

The Spurs shot just 37.2 percent from the field — including 5-of-19 in the first quarter, as they fell behind 30-17 after one and never recovered.

South Bay will have less than 24 hours to prepare for its next contest. It will host the Texas Legends on Sunday at 5 p.m.
