Senior Karam Mashour finished a terrific Bahamas trip with 18 points and 23 rebounds to lead the Morehead State to a 112-55 exhibition victory over the Pyramid Food Rockets at Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium on Aug. 11. Morehead State ended their Bahamas tour with a 3-0 record.
Mashour, who has only played five-minutes in two seasons at Morehead State after transferring from UNLV, finished the Bahamas trip with 56 points (18.7 ppg) and 60 rebounds (20.0 rpg) in three contests. He connected on 25-of-49 from the field in 73 minutes.
"Karam stepped up in all three games and should be a factor for us this year," Head Coach Sean Woods said. "I'm happy for Karam because he's missed two entire seasons. He sat out as a redshirt in 2012-13 and missed nearly all of 2013-14 with a back injury."
Morehead State forced Pyramid Food into 29 turnovers and had a total of seven players scoreinI double figures. The Eagles committed just 12 turnovers.
Morehead State started slowly, but held the Food Pyramid Rockets without a field goal for 13 minutes from midway through the first quarter until late in the second period. The Eagle offense rolled in the second half with 32 points in the third quarter and 29 more in the final 10 minutes.
Joining Mashour in double-figures were fellow seniors Angelo Warner (14 points) and Kareem Storey (13 points and 13 assists). Storey finished with 26 dimes and just six turnovers during the three-game foreign tour. Junior walk-on Jared Ravenscraft, senior Chad Donley and freshman Marquel Willis all contributed 12 points while red-shirt sophomore Corban Collins added 10 points.
Morehead State outscored their three opponents 330-181, also defeating the Grand Bahamas All-Stars (115-69) and Real Deal Shockers (103-57).
