ITHACA, N.Y. – The Red team jumped out to a 15-point halftime lead and cruised to a 66-58 win over the White on Saturday evening at Newman Arena. The winners shot 53 percent from the floor overall, including 63 percent in a torrid first half to give Marlon Sears' team the bragging rights win.

Devin Cherry scored 16 points and had five rebounds and Dwight Tarwater chipped in 13 points and six rebounds off the bench as the Red team's double figure scorers. Josh Figini made 4-of-5 shot from the floor for eight points, while Miles Asafo-Adjei, Eitan Chemerinski and Shonn Miller each tallied seven points apiece. Asafo-Adjei added a game-high eight assists, while Chemerinski had five boards. In all, the Red team posted a 32-24 edge on the backboards. Senior Pete McMillan had five points and three assists in the win.

The white got strong offensive efforts from Johnathan Gray (game-high 24 points) and Errick Peck (16 points, three rebounds, two assists). Only teammate Galal Cancer with eight points, four rebounds, three steals and three assists, had more than three points for white. Mike Blaine's team shot just 30 percent before halftime, but heated up after the break to shoot 14-of-28, including 6-of-12 from 3-point range.

The game served as the debuts of freshmen Nolan Cressler (two points, three rebounds, two assists, two steals), Holt Harmon (three points) and Robert Mischler. Freshman Braxston Bunce joined junior Jake Matthews on the sidelines for the game while recovering from preseason injuries.

The Big Red will continue to work toward its season opener on Saturday, Nov. 10 at 12 p.m. when it faces Western Michigan at Newman Arena.
