Edward Waters Has Lost Weekend

Article excerpt

Edward Waters College's seven-game win streak ended at Barber Scotia College over the weekend.

But the loss wasn't the Tigers' only bump on the road. The men's basketball team hit a couple more on the trip back from Concord. N.C. The team's charter bus, which also carried the EWC women's team, broke down twice on the way home.

Freshman swingman John Randolph averaged 26 points and seven rebounds last week to lead the Saints to a 2-0 conference record. The St. Augustine High graduate is the Florida Sun Conference's men's basketball player of the week. He was a second-team Class 6A all-state player before sitting out last season for Flagler.
