Titans get first road win in dominate fashion

Tarik Cool, men's basketball
Tarik Cool signed at Idaho State to continue his basketball career.

Tarik Cool got back to his scoring ways with 28 points and the Titans got a 120-78 road win on the other side of Eugene against New Hope. 

How it happened: It was only a 13 point half time lead, but the Titans outscored the Deacons by 29 in the 2nd half. 

What/who stood out: The Titans normal unselfishness was not as prevalent as they only had 17 assists on 42 made field goals. Cody Mathis recorded another double-double with 17 points 10 rebounds and added two blocks. Rodney Hounshell continued to not know how to miss consistently, he had 21 points on 9-14 shooting and is now averaging 19.8 ppg and a crazy 66 percent from the floor and 47.8 from three as a guard. Lezjon Bonds and Gabe Sorber also scored in double figures off the bench with 14 and 11. 

What it means: The Titans are 4-0. They have yet to play a NWAC opponent, but have taken care of business and avoided bad losses that have plagued previous teams. 

What's next: The Titans play Multnomah JV on the road on Monday at 6:30 p.m. Then they host the Dale Bates Tournament and open with the other Titans, Tacoma.
