INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Camron Justice scored 18 points on 7-of-11 shooting from the floor and IUPUI rolled to a 95-64 victory over NAIA-member Indiana-Kokomo on Thursday night.
Justice nailed half of his six 3-point shots and added four rebounds, two assists and two steals for the Jaguars (6-3), who are off to their best start since the 2009-10 season. Justice fell two points shy of becoming the first Jaguar to score 20-plus in four straight games since Alex Young did it in 2012.
The Cougars hung tough in the first half and led 28-25 after Bryce Hudson's 3-point play with 7:22 left. But Nick Rogers and Justice nailed back-to-back 3-pointers to ignite a 24-7 run that put IUPUI up 49-35 at halftime. The Cougars got no closer than nine points after intermission.
Akil McClain paced IU-Kokomo with 10 points.
