Chris Swade finished with 18 points, including two first-half three-pointers, to lead the Roadrunners (8-5).

BY THE NUMBERS

Michael Brooks had 10 of his 16 points in the first half when Nazareth built a 37-26 lead. Evan McLaughlin added 14 points, including eight in the third period. Deonte McReynolds led the Greyhounds with 20 points, while Quetrell Skanes scored all 10 of his points in the second quarter.

QUOTABLE

“We were taking too many 3-pointers and outside shots, and almost settling [in the first half]. We had to get to the rim at ease, so we decided to take it to the hole and we did more often. It really worked out for us.” –Swade
