The prolific guards on both teams was on display once again, but one notable difference was the foul trouble of Kenneth Smith who missed over 10 minutes of action in the second half.
It was then that the Bulldogs turned to Alex Hamilton at the point and rode his back to the tune of 30 points to take down the Demons, 99-88, on Tuesday night in Prather Coliseum.
