Emerald Coast Classic Info
The 2017 Emerald Coast Classic saw Tennessee Tech run away with the title, clinching the trophy with a 90-60 win over Maryland Eastern Shore. The Golden Eagles were led by a career performance from guard Kajon Mack, as well as clutch showings off the bench by Shaq Calhoun and Cade Crosland. Mack knocked down a career-high six-of-seven attempts beyond the arc while tying his career-high of 24 points on 9-for-10 shooting from the field. Crosland buried two more threes in the second half on his way to career-best 12 points, while Calhoun finished with 15 points. Past Emerald Coast Classic champions include TCU, UVA and Iowa State.
