Jackson Morgan led all Tigers in scoring with 21 points.
Behind the pressure Dawson opened up a 17-4 lead after one quarter of play. The Tigers extended their advantage to 21-points by half, 34-13.
The Tigers were never in serious trouble the entire game and came away with the 23-point win.
Greer said he was impressed with his team's effort.
"I was happy with the way we executed our offensive sets and how we played the half court match up defense," he said.
