TALLAHASSSEE, Fla. -- The Abraham Baldwin College Stallions played Thursday and Friday at the Tallahassee Community College basketball tournament.

The Stallions were defeated 76-63 Thursday by the host Tallahassee Community College team. ABAC was then defeated 98-86 by PyExpress, an AAU team from Tallahassee, on Friday.

"We are starting out 1-2, but we lost to two very good teams," ABAC head coach Todd Sheppard said.

In the loss to TCC, Michael Sapp led the Stallions with 13 points and 11 rebounds. Stanley Brownlee and Brandon Shingles also added eight points apiece.

Originally scheduled to play LB Wallace, a school from Alabama, ABAC instead had to play PyExpress on Friday.

"LB Wallace backed out and they got PyExpress to take their place. We played them last year and I said I wasn't ever going to play them again, but we either had to play them or not play in the tournament," Sheppard said.

"PyExpress has three guys that played at Florida State and one guy who played at Pittsburgh last year. So, the game was a good test for us."

Brownlee led the Stallions with 18 points and 10 rebounds.

"Stanley had been struggling with his shot, but he seemed to come out of it in this game," Sheppard said.

Kevin Green also added 12 points and 10 boards for the Stallions.

ABAC will be back on the court Saturday in the South Georgia Tech tournament in Americus. The Stallions will play Lawson State (Ala.) on Saturday and then return to play Jeff Davis (Ala.) on Sunday.
