By By Bruce Hixon Standard Sports Editor
Greenville began the T.R. Miller Tournament with a record-setting 86 points for a game in its first-round triumph over Monroe County.
The Tigers fell just short of breaking that mark again in their 83-59 triumph over West Florida in Wednesday's third place game.
Greenville (5-9), which entered the tournament as the defending champion, mounted a 36-21 halftime lead and then easily secured its win with a 47-point second half.
Rashad Knight tallied 16 points to pace Greenville, while Isiah Mack added 13.
West Florida (2-8) got a game high 18 points from Will DuPont.
After a tight first half struggle against a pesky Flomaton squad, Monroe County used a big second half surge to blow away the Hurricanes 71-41 in the consolation championship.
Monroe County (7-6) had only a 29-23 halftime lead before it outscored Flomaton (7-6) 42-18 in the second half.
Geocoby Penn led the victorious Tigers with 13 points, while Anthony Stovull added 11.
Flomaton's C.J. Williams racked up a game high 21 points and finished as the tournament's top scorer with 59 points for three games. Williams also had a tournament high nine treys.
