Arnold drained four three-point field goals in the first half and an additional two in the second half to reach his 20 points, a career-high total against a DI opponent. He hauled in a career-high nine rebounds to go with his career-high six threes.
Awosika stuffed the stat sheet as he talled 18 points (one off his career high), seven rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block in 38 minutes.
