CARTERVILLE -- Five players reached double figures as the nationally-ranked John A. Logan College men's basketball team routed Southeastern Illinois, 107-49, Saturday at Brewer Gymnasium.

The Volunteers, who were ranked 19th in the latest NJCAA Division I national poll, came into the game averaging 99 points per game and surpassed that mark.

Logan is now 9-1 overall and 3-1 in the Great Rivers Athletic Conference. SIC dropped to 1-7 and 0-4.

The Vols had played three straight overtime games but this one was in little doubt early as Logan jumped out to a big lead and was ahead 51-20 at halftime.

Derek Hawthorne Jr. and Jonah Jackson both scored 18 points to lead the Vols. Hawthorne had 14 of his points in the first half.

Jackson went 6-for-8 from 3-point land, where Logan was 11 of 22 as a team.

Jaiveon Eaves had 13 points, David Sloan put in 12 and Romelo Burrell had 11.

Hawthorne, Quamain Nelson, Damion Taylor and Aaron Twist all shared team-high honors for rebounds with seven each. Sloan had five assists and Marion's Justin Shadowens had four assists to go along with two points on a late layup.

On a pair of occasions, Shadowens went up against former Marion teammate Samuel Swinford, who is a point guard for the Falcons. Swinford did not score in the game.

SIC was led by Carbondale product Winslow Martin with 14 points. Antonio Johnson had nine. The Falcons were 15 of 49 shooting from the floor and committed 26 turnovers.

Logan returns to action Tuesday night at home against Three Rivers.
