The Warhawks put on another offensive clinic at home to dominate the Jaguars in a triple-digit 100-68 victory.

Coach Keith Richard was pleased with his team’s performance on the night.

“We played great offensively. We really did. It’s like we have two different teams with one being at home and the other on the road,” Richard said.

After a tight game in the beginning of the first half ULM slowly began to get their offense clicking.

A ten-point lead was built up at half time and the Warhawks walked into their locker room up 39-29 at the break.

At the start of the second half ULM’s offense began to fire on all cylinders.

The Warhawks only continued to increase their lead and, with just under five minutes left to go, put together a 12-2 run to seal the game.

The ball was finding everyone on the court and all five starters scored in double digits.

The effort was led by senior Justin Roberson who went 9-12 for 23 points.

“I was just trying to get my team into it and play ball and be happy about it,” Roberson said.

The defense was also holding the Jaguars scoreless for several stretches throughout the game.

“Our length in general was bothering them I thought,” Richard said.

The Warhawks out rebounded the Jaguars 39-26 behind senior Jamaal Samuels 13.

The team hosts the University of Texas at Arlington on Thursday.
