It was no secret that Herd That could shoot the ball. On Sunday afternoon, the Marshall University alumni squad only validated that thought.
Jacorey Williams had a team-high 22 points on 9-for-11 shooting as Herd That led by 19 points at one point and coasted to an 80-65 victory over the Peoria All-Stars.
“You can have a lot of fun playing in this style,” said Williams, the 2017 Conference USA Player of the Year while at Middle Tennessee State University. “You can’t guard this style of play because there are no set plays. You can’t prepare for it.”
Williams also pulled down a game-high nine rebounds in the win for Herd That, which outscored the Peoria All-Stars, 44-20, in the paint.
“I just run, and these guys find me,” said Williams. “ Once we got to training camp, I got an up-close look at what they were trying to do. The combination of rebounding and athleticism with the threes make us hard to beat.”
Trevon Allen led all scorers with 26 points in the losing effort for Peoria.
Herd That advances to face The Money Team on July 9th at 2:00 PM EST.
