Collectively, the men shot just over 50% from the field, and 73% from the line. In the 2nd half, the team missed just one free throw.
The night also saw the emergence of a new class of leaders on the hardwood. This included the team leaders in points for the night, which included Travis Owsley with 18 points and Anthony Sargent with 27. These two followed the lead of Aaron Wyatt, who played 38 minutes, contributing an impressive double-double that consisted of 44 points and 11 rebounds. His efforts included shooting perfect from beyond the 3-pt. line. The Canes started the season off on a good note, leaving the home crowd of 645 with a good taste in their mouths.
