WINCHESTER, Va. – Visiting Roanoke College had a strong shooting performance Saturday in an 85-63 ODAC men's basketball victory over Shenandoah. 

The Maroons (13-5, 6-3 ODAC) shot 60 percent in the first half (18-of-30) on their way to a 45-29 halftime lead over the Hornets (5-12, 1-7).

After the two teams traded the lead four times and were tied five times in the first 11 minutes of play, Roanoke took control of the game with a 9-1 run midway through the first half.

RC established total control of the contest with a 17-0 run that sandwiched halftime. The Maroons held at least a 20-point lead the rest of the way.

IN BRIEF

After shooting 60 percent in the first half, Roanoke shot 52 percent (16-of-31) in the second half to keep the Hornets at bay. 

Following that 17-0 run, which ended thanks to a Christopher Chaney free throw at 17:11, the two teams split the remaining 66 points in the contest. RC expanded its lead out to 34 points by the 5:43 mark before Shenandoah ended the game on a 21-9 run.

Chaney led the hosts with 14 points. Roanoke had four players in double figures.

QUOTABLE

"All the credit to Roanoke for coming in here and being ready to play," head coach Adam Walsh said. "I liked our start, but Roanoke came in with high energy and hit a couple of shots that seemed to get them on a roll. 

"It's a long season and we have a bunch of games left. We just need to work harder."

UP NEXT

Shenandoah travels to Lexington, Virginia to take on Washington & Lee Wednesday evening at 7.
