Richmond dominates Temple for key A-10 win

Richmond, VA (WWBT)- The Richmond basketball team has a week to prepare for Temple following its first Atlantic 10 win at Rhode Island last Saturday.  This Saturday night at the Robins Center, that week of worked paid off, as the Spiders dominated the Owls.

Derrick Williams scored 18 points and pulled down 13 rebounds to lead the Spiders to a 76-65 victory over Temple.  It marked Williams' second career double-double and improves Richmond's record to 11-7, 2-1 in the A-10.  The game was close in the early stages of the first half, with Richmond holding a 15-13 lead at the 10:51 mark of that opening frame.  An 8-0 Spider run opened up the lead to ten points, and after Temple had pulled to score to within 27-20, Richmond responded with another 10-0 run to go up by 17 and had the gap at 19 points entering halftime.  The second half saw more of the same as the Spiders shot 50 percent in that second stanza en route to the win.

Williams was one of four Richmond players to score in double figures.  Darien Brothers led the way with a team-high 19 points.  Kendall Anthony was big off the bench for Chris Mooney's team with 15 points, while Cedrick Lindsay chipped in eleven points.  Darius Garrett helped with a big defensive night, pulling down ten rebounds and tallying five blocks for the Spiders. 

Richmond is back in action on Wednesday when the Spiders hit the road to face George Washington.  Tip-off is set for 7:00 pm.
