As the lone representation on the Florida college basketball circuit on Tuesday, the Florida A&M Rattlers represented well as they beat visiting Edward Waters, 87-69.
It wasn't an RPI building game as EW isn't a Division I school, but it did give the Rattlers their first winning streak of the season after they beat Bethune-Cookman, 75-67, on Saturday.
The Rattlers were led by a double-double from Jamie Adams with 18 points and 11 rebounds. Reggie Lewis scored 17 points while Jamari Bradshaw (15 points), Muhammad Abdul-Aleem (14 points) and Markee Teal (11 points) all scored in double-figures for the Rattlers.
The Rattlers led by as much as 20 points as Nathaniel Hill tried his best to keep his team in it with 21 points on 10-for-17 shoting and seven rebounds, but it wasn't to be.
The Rattlers are now 3-6 overall and 1-0 in the MEAC conference, a year removed from shocking the world in the NCAA Tournament by upsetting the Missouri Tigers in the first round of the tourney.
