NICEVILLE, Fla.– Tallahassee Community College basketball head coach Eddie Barnes started his final season on the bench with a win.  The Eagles hammered Volunteer State 118 to 67 on Halloween night.

The contest was part of the Quality Inn Classic, hosted by Northwest Florida State College.

The 118 points marked the most points Tallahassee has scored in a game in almost six years. The Eagles scored 132 against IMG Academy on November 12, 2008.

Seven players scored in double-figures on Friday, led by sophomore guard Dirk Williams with 24 points on the strength of six three-pointers.

Tallahassee will continue play at the Quality Inn Classic at 6:30 p.m. eastern on Saturday against Faith Baptist (Ga.) Prep Academy.
