The Pilots defeated Quality Education Academy of North Carolina, 69-63, behind standout point guard Cory Joseph’s 34 points.

Joseph went 5-of-7 from beyond the 3-point line to guide Findlay to a 7-0 record.

Third-year Pilots coach Mike Peck is 72-1.

Joseph also had five rebounds and three assists.

Junior guard Jabari Brown scored 11 points for the Pilots, and senior power forward Godwin Okonji tallied 13 rebounds and four steals.

Joseph, senior power forward Tristan Thompson and Brown were named to the all-tournament team.

Findlay returns home to play Australia Travelers at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Henderson International School.
