Tigers score 100-plus again, win 7th straight

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - It's getting harder and harder for Savannah State head coach Horace Broadnax to brush aside the praise his Tigers are earning.

SSU claimed their 7th straight win Saturday, 111-99 over South Carolina State. It's the fifth straight time the Tigers have eclipsed the century mark.

Dexter McClanahan had a team-high 23 points for the Tigers, who had six players score in double figures. SSU hit 13 three-pointers and led by as many as 17 in the second half.

Savannah State improves to 8-1 in MEAC play with the win, which keeps them on top of the conference standings. That said, Broadnax isn't wanting to hear any of it.

The long-time head coach has been going the Nick Saban route, consistently tweeting "#RatPoison" regarding praise for his team's winning streak.

The Tigers can strengthen their grip on the MEAC standings over the next week. SSU hosts Morgan State and second-place North Carolina A&T in their next two games.
