Grand Canyon thumps Morgan State in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS — Joshua Braun scored 18 points and led five players in double-figure scoring as Grand Canyon blasted Morgan State, 100-74, to keep its undefeated run at Orleans Arena intact Wednesday night.
That winning streak will loom larger come mid-March, when the Western Athletic Conference tournament takes place there.
The Antelopes built a 46-33 advantage in the first half and kept their scoring pressure on the rest of the way, setting a season-high for scoring en route. Before this game Grand Canyon had not cracked the 90 point barrier, let alone reached triple digits.
Fifi Aidoo contributed 12 points, Keonta Vernon and Casey Benson each added 11 and Gerard Martin scored 10 points. The Antelopes shot 34 of 66 from the field (51.5 percent), including 13 of 29 from behind the 3-point arc.
Tiwian Kendley scored 31 points and collected four steals for the Bears (4-8). Phillip Carr added 18 points and grabbed 12 rebounds.
