The Cavaliers won their sixth game in a row, improving their record to 17-5 with a 99-76 win against Cairn University on Monday, Feb. 4.
Jeremy Knowles led the team with 17 points, and was 5-for-5 from three-point range. Freshman John White added 14 points and five rebounds.
Twenty minutes into the game, the Cavaliers held a large lead 55-38. They were shooting 58 percent, as well as 9-for-15 from the three-point line.
Cabrini out-rebounded Cairn, 22-7, in the first half which led to a chance for seven more shot attempts.
Fran Rafferty finished with 13 points and five rebounds. A. J Williams added 11 points and Brad Fagan matched his career high with nine points. John Glenn added eight points in his first career start.
“Our defense wasn’t exactly where we would have hoped it would have been,” Rafferty said. “We didn’t really do that coming out, we started slow and picked it up a little bit.”
“I think we started off a little slow but in the second half I think we picked it up our energy, which was good for the team,” sophomore Howard Blake III said.
“Our effort wasn’t even near what it was supposed to be,” Rafferty said, “but luckily we shot the ball well and still came out in the end.”
The Cavs round out their season with two more games starting on Saturday, Feb. 9, when they host Rosemont College at 1 p.m.
