continued Just then, Russo took over. His 3-pointer with 5:19 left pushed CBA ahead 34-32, and after Dan Kaigler tied it, Russo struck again from beyond the arc, and the Brothers were in front for good.
Kevin Bailey's 3-pointer with 1:29 left made it 42-34, setting up a strange final sequence. Twice, the Brothers had free throws that were air balls, and Ludden crept within 42-38 before Russo closed it out by making four straight foul shots.
Of Russo's 21 points, 16 of them were in the second half. Bailey added seven points before fouling out, with Jack Pfohl and Kevin Bailey getting six points apiece. Kaigler led Ludden with 18 points as Ben Hackett contributed 11 points.
