WINDSOR—Senior Nick Doyle hit a three from the corner on the first possession of the game for Southampton and the Raiders never looked back, defeating Windsor 82-40 on Wednesday.

“We hit all four of our three-pointers for the night in the first quarter en route to putting up 31 points while limiting Windsor to 9,” said Southampton Coach Will Melbye. “Ten of our 11 players scored, and everyone saw significant playing time in the game. We did a great job of getting to the basket, feeding the posts and knocking down open looks.”

The Indians led 42-20 at the half.

One concern for Southampton this season has been free throw shooting.

“Last night we shot 64 percent, the first time we’ve been better than 60 percent since the first game of the season,” Melbye said. “It’s a lack of concentration, thinking about everything else that is going on, instead of the task at hand, the free throw.”

Jay’R McCain led the way for the winners with 17 points. Teammates Jamal Johnson and Tyshawn Jackson added 14 and 12, respectively. Doyle, who often leads in scoring, didn’t add anything after his initial three points.

Treyon Conway led the way home, pacing the Indians with a career-high seven points in the fourth quarter.

Windsor Coach Brandon Bossick did not provide statistics for players.

Southampton will host Northampton today, Jan. 6, with the junior varsity game starting at 6 p.m.

Windsor travels to Sussex today for a 5:30 p.m. junior varsity tip-off.
