points for the game with 3 assists and 2 steals) and Sam
points, 3 assists, 2 steals for the game) encouraged their teammates to play

half). Jerrell picked up the offense in the second half by scoring 16 more points
for 21 total to go along with 5 boards. Tyrone Garland chipped
for 11 shooting. The Explorers shot 48 percent in the second half while holding
