FORT MYERS, Fla.- The #7 Florida SouthWestern State Buccaneers blew past the century mark for the third time this season Friday night as seven different players scored in double figures in a 112-74 blowout of visiting Combine Academy to improve to 11-1 on the year.

It was all Bucs, all night on Friday as FSW jumped out to an early 10-4 lead and never looked back.  Ralph Bissainthe scored on back to back trips to push their lead to 21-10 at the 12 minute mark and scored the next seven points after that to balloon the lead to 28-10 at the midway mark of the first.  Both teams continued to pour the points on, but FSW would score 15 of the final 18 of the half to open up a commanding 58-32 lead at the break.

The Bucs continued to pour it on in the second as Keon Ellis knifed the lane and threw down a huge one handed slam to put FSW up 30 and moments later Jaden Campbell scored in the paint to give the Bucs triple digits as they led 100-69 with 4:50 to go.  A two handed slam from Mohamed Sylla sealed the freshman's second double-double of the season and a late three point play from CJ Lane finished up an impressive 112-74 win for the Bucs. 

Seven different players scored in double figures for the Bucs who shot an even 50% in the contest.  Ellis led the way with 21 on 8 of 13 shooting while Berrick JeanLouis added 17 in just over 20 minutes of action. Both FSW big men registered double-doubles in the win as Sylla finished with 12 points and 11 rebounds while Simeon Kirkland had 14 points and 10 boards.  

The Bucs improve to 11-1 on the year with the victory and will take the floor again on Tuesday on the road at Miami Dade in a 7:30 tip against the Sharks.
