NASSAU, Bahamas - The Bahamas is an exciting place with jaw-dropping views and always plenty of laughs and smiles to go along on the trip.

For the Tarleton men's basketball team, who is competing in a foreign tour tournament in the Bahamas, their opening game against the College of the Bahamas was everything like that and more. Behind plenty of high-flying dunks that made the crowd at Kendall Isaac's Gym ooh and ahh and the Texans' well-established defense, Tarleton coasted to a 95-72 win on Tuesday night.

The Texans led for 39 of the 40 minutes in the game, with three players topping double figures. Romond Jenkins, last season's South Central Tournament Most Valuable Player, led all scorers with 23 points on 9-of-9 from the floor and five steals. Redshirt freshmen, Josh Hawley and Anthony Davis, made their Tarleton debuts after sitting out last season and didn't miss a beat. Hawley posted 14 points while Davis added 12 and a team-high six rebounds.

The tournament uses International Basketball Association (FIBA) rules, with the main differences being four 10-minute quarters, unlike two 20-minute halves that the NCAA uses. There is also a 24-second shot clock, opposed to the usual 30 seconds for college basketball.

Tarleton led 26-17 after the first quarter and 46-40 at halftime. The second half, however, was like every Texan game fans are accustomed to seeing with Coach Lonn Reisman making his usual halftime adjustments. Tarleton outscored College of the Bahamas 29-12 in the third quarter in large part by holding CoB to 32 percent shooting while the Texans connected on 52 percent of their shots.

15 of the 17 Texans scored in the game, with senior Chantz Chambers coming off the bench to post nine points and five rebounds. Kealon Clayborne, a redshirt freshman, scored eight points in his debut on 2-of-2 shooting and 4-of-5 from the free-throw line. A trio of newcomers to Tarleton contributed on both ends of the floor with Denzel Smith, a junior, scoring seven points and two blocks and freshman Brandon Willis scoring six points and coming up with three steals. Ridell Camidge, a junior transfer from Charlotte, scored six points and pulled down six rebounds.

Nosa Ebomwonyi dished out a team-high three assists, Curtiss Anderson scored two points, while Sawyer Kipp and Deshawn Riddick each scored three points. Da'Rhon Mitchell grabbed four rebounds off the bench.

Tarleton will take on IBA Elite on Thursday at 8 p.m. CT. Stay tuned to and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates on the Texans throughout their trip in the Bahamas.
