LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Koby Thomas displayed a near-perfect shooting touch going nine of 10 from the floor, making three of four 3-pointers along the way, and finishing with 21 points as Robert Morris defeated Norfolk State 75-53 Friday for its second straight win.
Leondre Washington scored 16 points, Dachon Burke scored 15 and each was credited with five assists for the Colonials (2-3) in a contest that was part of the Grand Canyon Classic.
Thomas scored five quick points on a fast-break layup and a 3-pointer, each possession started by two of his four defensive rebounds, pushing a six-point halftime lead to 11, 36-25. Washington added a 3-pointer that increased the lead into double digits, 42-29, where it stayed the rest of the way and growing to as many as 25 points.
Nic Thomas and Alex Long each scored 12 for Norfolk State (0-5).
Robert Morris made 10 3-pointers to the Spartans four and grabbed 36 rebounds, 25 off the defensive glass.
