Richmond pulls away from Stetson to improve to 9-2

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

The Richmond men's basketball team is off to its best start in 25 years, improving to 9-2 on the season with a 76-57 thumping of Stetson Saturday night at the Robins Center.

Junior Derrick Williams scored a game-high 21 points and grabbed eight rebounds as the Spiders improved to 7-0 at home and won their fifth-straight overall.

Sophomore Kendall Anthony scored 18 points, making 3-of-4 three-pointers, and senior Darien Brothers had 16 points, making 4-of-7 three-pointers as the Spiders shot over 50 percent from the field for the fourth time in the last five games.

Brothers four three-pointers give him 149 for his career, which passes Jarod Stephenson for 10th on Richmond's career list. Five of the top-10 on Richmond's career list for three-pointers were recruited by Chris Mooney. Brothers joins fellow Mooney recruits David Gonzalvez, Kevin Anderson, Justin Harper and Ryan Butler in the top-10.

Junior Cedrick Lindsay had eight points, making 3-of-4 field goals and senior Greg Robbins had seven points and five rebounds.

The Spiders shot 51.1 percent from the field and 42.9 percent from behind the arc, making 9-of-21 three-pointers.

Richmond returns to action Tuesday at famed Phog Allen Fieldhouse to play 9th ranked Kansas. The Spiders are 1-1 all-time against the Jayhawks, having won at Allen Fieldhouse in 2004. The Jayhawks defeated the Spiders in the 2011 Sweet 16.
