"I'm happy with the results. I am really pleased with the way we played. That is the greatest accomplishment is coming out with a win," Hamilton said.
Oakland coach Greg Kampe said nobody has bought into the team philosophy more than their second-leading scorer.
"We don't buy into numbers or stats," Kampe said. "If Oakland plays good, we win. If we don't, we lose.
"When we beat Tennessee, he wasn't on the floor in the final three minutes, but the first kid to jump into someone's arms at halfcourt was Reggie Hamilton. That is the type of kids we have and it is the reason we are successful."
Southern Utah coach Roger Reid on Hamilton: When you're playing somebody that is a great shooter and has great quickness, that's a double-edged sword."
Oh, and Hamilton only had two turnovers Saturday, not a bad way to start the tournament.
