College Hoops roundup: Cavaliers win by 41

Associated Press

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — J.R. Reynolds and Jason Cain each had 22 points to lead Virginia to a 104-63 win over Maryland-Eastern Shore on Sunday in the first meeting between the teams.

The Cavaliers (4-0) led 51-33 at halftime, and kept the Hawks (0-3) to 37.3 percent from the field for the game.

Virginia, which closed out four-game homestand, scored 23 points off turnovers and racked up 54 rebounds to the Hawks’ 21.

Mamadi Diane added 17 for the Cavs and Sean Singletary had 11. Cain also had eight rebounds.

Corey Brown led Maryland-Eastern Shore with 21 points, Jesse Brooks had 20 and Antonio McMillion added 10.

College of Charleston 91, UNC Wilmington 70

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Bobby Cremins didn’t think anything special happened at Kresse Arena on Sunday, even if most everyone else there did.

The College of Charleston’s new coach was debuting before the home folks, the ones who long for Cremins to make the Cougars into a small-school power like the man whose name is on the court did during the 1990s.

And Cremins’ Cougars put on a show that sent fans home happy, blowing out defending Colonial Athletic Association champ UNC Wilmington, 91-70.

Still, Cremins didn’t approach this one any differently than his first four games in his return to college basketball. “If we had lost,” he said. “We still would’ve gotten them ready for the next one.”

Now, the College of Charleston (3-2) can take a little confidence into its next matchup Tuesday at Kentucky.

Dontaye Draper scored 22 of his 28 points in the second half for Charleston, which shook off a sluggish first half to put away the Seahawks (1-3) after the break.
