WINTER PARK, Fla.- In one of the lowest combined scores of the 2009-2010 season, the Palm Beach Atlantic University and Rollins College men’s basketball teams combined for 110 points as RC road a solid first-half to a 65-45 win over the Sailfish in the second of two RC-PBA basketball games on the evening at the Warden Arena.
After shooting only 20% (7-35) including only 2-of-13 (15%) from beyond the arc in the first-half, the Sailfish rallied for a much improved 50% (12-24) overall mark in the second-half however it was not enough on Wednesday evening as the Tars lived up to their #17 national ranking and improved to 17-3 on the season.
The Tars sweep the season series with PBA after splitting their season series a year ago. RC shot a consistent 53.7% (22-41) for the game while nailing 53% in the first-half and 54% in the second stanza.
Transfer Myk Brown led four RC players in double-figures with 15 points on 3-of-8 shooting from the field and 9-of-15 at the charity stripe. He also added in six assists and five rebounds to lead the way.
Defending Sunshine State Conference Player of the Year Nick Wolf was held in check somewhat by the Sailfish defense on the night but still managed to register a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds while registering a 4-of-7 shooting night.
PBA senior Jonathan Lawrence led the way for the Sailfish with 10 points on 5-of-11 from the field. Hunter Ross chipped in with six points and eight rebounds while Matt Roy contributed seven points off the bench although the freshman guard also was counted for six turnovers in 22 minutes.
