From the moment the game started, the Rams sailed through ESM's defensive resistance, hitting on every conceivable shot. By the end of the third quarter, it was 81-35, and only a free throw kept the Rams from 100.
Hymes led with 15 points, with Kearse adding 13 points. Triche was quite content in a distributor's role as he finished with 11 points, a number Zach Firestone matched for a career high. Coleman and Demetrius Mitchell each had eight points, with Jailaan Kinsey adding seven points. Each of J-D's 13 players that saw game action got at least three points.
ESM struggled all night against this overwhelming show of force, as Ken Cannon earned nine points, Sahar Nero added seven points and Zach Whedon got six points.
The Spartans would return home Thursday night and put on quite an offensive show against Fowler, yet still take a 99-82 loss to the Falcons.
Fowler ran from the start and led 28-12 before ESM erupted for 34 points in a wild second quarter. The Falcons kept up enough to still be ahead, 53-46, going into the break.
Gradually, ESM watched Fowler pull away in the second half, even though Greg Raab hit on eight 3-pointers to account for all of his 24 points. Quadear Mike put up 21 points, while Sharif Nero worked his way to 16 points and Tyler Dattmore gained nine points.
To win, the Falcons relied on a potent three-pronged assault where Malcolm Jones earned 26 points, Ron Monroe added 23 points and Chris Gilkes finished with 21 points.
As ESM goes to Fulton and Bishop Ludden this week, the Red Rams pay a visit to Mexico on Tuesday and goes to Cortland on Friday night.
