NSU shot lights out from the field, converting 55 percent of its shots attempts (29-for-53), a season-best 58 percent of its three’s (15-for-26) and 80 percent of its free throws (12-for-15).

NSU jumped out to a quick 12-2 lead heading into the first media timeout and never looked back. The team led by as much as 35 points in the rout of the Lopers.


The RiverHawks had a 48-18 lead at recess as the home team held their opponents to less than 20 points in the first 20 minutes for the second-straight game.


NSU finished with a season-high 85 points, which was also the most since March 11, 2011.
