The game went exactly the way it was supposed to. I give Coach Beard’s team credit tonight for jumping out to an early lead and keeping Incarnate Word out of the game. Tech led at the half with a score of 38-25 and they were able to keep IC at bay the rest of the way. The Cardinals are a team with a lot fight. Tech led by as many as 24 early, but IC cut it all the way down to 8 points early in the second half. Fortunately the Red Raiders withstood the Cardinals charge and with about eleven minutes to go stretched the lead back to 15.
- Tech absolutely dominated the first half points in the paint 18-2.
- Gray and Millinghaus were the scoring leaders with 14 each.
- Tech was 12/16 (75%) from the charity stripe tonight.
- Zach Smith is an absolute treat to watch!
