HIALEAH, FL – Redshirt sophomore guard Matt Maturah scored a game-high 21 points – which was sparked by his going a perfect 3-for-3 from the three-point line in the second half – as ASA Miami was able to stave off a pesky Game Changers Academy team and pick up a 69-63 victory Wednesday night at The Dent.
Maturah ended up knocking down five three-pointers Wednesday – including a deep corner shot from long range at the first half buzzer which allowed the Silver Storm to take a 30-29 lead – while also nabbing seven steals, grabbing three rebounds and dishing out a pair of assists.
Wednesday's victory snapped a three-game losing streak for the Silver Storm (1-3) and gave ASA its first home win of the season.
Despite clinging to a 1-point lead at halftime, ASA Miami fell behind by as many as seven in the second half before a combination of Maturah's hot shooting and timely buckets by Brandon Stewart and Vilchez paced a Silver Storm run and allowed them to pull away in the final minutes.
Up Next: ASA Miami will hit the road to play a treacherous stretch of four games in five days – beginning Friday at Florida Gateway College.
