OSAN AIR BASE, South Korea – Robert Penry had been waiting for weeks for Bryson Goldsmith to get healthy enough from an injury suffered in football, so he could play a full game for Osan.

The freshman guard proved to be just the spark the Cougars needed, scoring 24 points as Osan won its first game of the season in six tries, routing Taejon Christian 67-45. The win came two days after the Cougars lost at league-leading Humphreys 70-45.

“He’s (Goldsmith) the best basketball talent who’s come through the school since I’ve been here,” said Penry, who’s in his third year at Osan.
