The Osceola Magic defeated the Memphis Hustle at Osceola Heritage Park 115-98 Thursday night, keeping their unbeaten at home status alive!
Mac McClung led Osceola with a game-high 28 points and seven rebounds, while Daeqwon Plowden tallied 25 points. Tevelin Queen collected a double-double netting 20 points, 11 rebounds, and six assists. Memphis’ GG Jackson also had a double-double putting up 24 points and 11 rebounds.
“We’ve been mentally locked in,” Plowden said. “We had a great road trip, but nothing is better than coming home. Having a day off with time to recover helps us come in prepared for tonight’s game.”
“This is a great group of guys,” Queen stated. “We hang out off the court, we’re more like a family. Once you play for your family, there’s no one else that can break that bond.”
“It’s awesome to be undefeated at home,” Osceola head coach Dylan Murphy said. “We’ve been figuring out who we are as a team, what we have to do every night to win, and we have a confidence that helps us know we will be successful.”
The Magic took control early in the game, establishing a 24-6 lead in the first quarter. They maintained their momentum, finishing the first half 59-49. Osceola continued to build their lead, with five players reaching double figures in scoring. This victory extends their win streak to three, maintaining a perfect record at home.
