Will Clyburn, Jack Cooley Not Enough in Blowout Loss at Portsmouth


In the opening night of the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, Will Clyburn led the Norfolk Sports Club with 25 points and three steals in a blowout loss against K&D Roundscaping, 91-67.

Jack Cooley (Notre Dame) had a double-double, 13 points and 14 rebounds, along with a team-high three blocks – which was the only advantage Norfolk had in the game.

Clyburn hit nine field goals while the second-most made my a player on the team was four. Only Cooley and himself hit double-digits on the offensive end.

By comparison, K&D had six players score in double-digits – three of them off of the bench. Brandon Davies (BYU) led the team with 16 points in an efficient 6-8 from the field and had eight rebounds. DJ Seeley (Cal State Fullerton) came off the bench with 15 points.
