UIS men hit triple digits in basketball win over Robert Morris

The University of Illinois Springfield men’s basketball team scored over 100 points in only one game last season and the end result was a win over Robert Morris University.

UIS eclipsed the 100-point plateau again against RMU Wednesday for a 101-52 win in the Prairie Stars’ home opener at The Recreation and Athletic Center.

UIS now has back-to-back wins and a 2-1 overall record after beating Findlay 82-80 at the D2 Vegas Showdown Saturday and RMU.

“After these last two wins, I’m really excited what the season holds for us,” UIS freshman forward Bahari Amaya said. “We’re progressing every day. The sky is the limit. I’m really excited to see what we’re going to do.”

The win was reported by The State Journal-Register on November 19, 2015.
