Thanks to four scorers in double digits, the Fighting Irish cruised to an easy victory over the Delaware State Hornets on Friday night to improve to 4-0 on the season. The Irish were led by senior guard Scott Martin, who dropped in 23 points on just under 50% shooting on the night. Right on his heels were sophomore guards Alex Dragicevich and Jerian Grant, who scored 18 and 17 points respectively.
As a team, the Irish pretty much shot the lights out, going 49% from the field and 48% from three on the night. Their defense was also very solid, as they held the Hornets to 40% shooting from the field despite Delaware State hitting 8 of their 17 three point attempts. The Hornets were led by freshman guard Tahj Tate, who dropped in seven three pointers on his way to a 29 point night. Unfortunately for Delaware State, though, none of his teammates were able to reach double digits as the Irish breezed to a 24 point victory.
