MIAMI SHORES, FLORIDA – Florida Tech was unable to keep up with Barry on the boards Wednesday night, allowing the Bucs to dominate the rebounding battle as well as the score in a 103-78 defeat to the Bucs.
FIT was outrebounded 47-24 in the contest, due in part to the Panthers shooting just 41.8 percent from the floor, including 33.3 percent from behind the three-point arc.
Jordan Majors led the Panthers through the poor shooting performance, knocking down half of his 16 shots on the way to 24 points, adding in six assists and a trio of rebounds.
Patrick Anderson was next in line with 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting, while Rafael Casanova and Sam Daniel also reached double-figures with 10 points apiece.
Aire Williams and Sawyer Glick led the way for the Bucs with 22 and 21 points, respectively. Both were unconscious from behind the arc, with Williams hitting 6-of-9 attempts and Glick draining 7-of-8.
Aside from a tie at 3-3 less than 30 seconds into the game, the Bucs led throughout the entirety of the contest. The Panthers were able to keep things close early on but by the 12:03 mark of the opening half the BU lead had opened up to double-digits at 26-15.
Just a few minutes later and things were out of hand with the Bucs leading by 19 points with 10:30 remaining following a Glick three-pointer. The lead grew to as large as 23 points, which was the halftime deficit for the Panthers with FIT trailing 59-36 at the break.
The second half was much of the same as BU led by at least 20 points for nearly the entire second half. The deficit for FIT ballooned to as much as 37 points.
At that point the outcome was well in hand and a 5-0 run at the end of the contest by Max Fischer brought the Barry lead down to 25 points.
The Panthers will return to action in one week, taking on Eckerd at the Clemente Center at 7:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday. Links to live video, audio and stats will be available at FloridaTechSports.com/live.
