Don’t let the final score fool you: this was a game much longer than most fans would have hoped.

TSU limped into the locker room at the end of the first half nursing a two-point lead over the lower Division Reinhardt — but the Tigers offense was too much to handle in the second half, as TSU cruised late to a 97-66 victory.

Junior Marcus Roper paced all scorers with 23 while both Zachary Lee (15 points, 10 rebounds) and Demontez Loman (11 points, 13 boards) posted double-doubles.

TSU shot 56% from the field and 61% from three-point land for the game. Roper was 4-for-7 from behind the arc while Jay Harris hit 3-of-4.

Tennessee State led by as much as 15 in the first half, before an extended 24-8 run by Reinhardt. But there was no answer in the second half, where Tennessee State outscored the Eagles 50-21. Reinhardt turned the ball over eight times in the second half leading to 10 points for TSU. Both Lee and Darreon Reddick were perfect from the field (both were 3-for-3) on the half, while Lee added nine rebounds.

Along with Roper, Lee, and Loman, there were three other Tigers who finished with double-digit points. Harris put up 18 as the second highest scorer while Reddick had 15 and Xavier Richards had 10.

The Tigers did lose the turnover battle thanks in part to 18 giveaways on the night, and hit just 19-31 (61%) from the free-throw line.

TSU will continue its home-stand next Tuesday night against Southern Illinois. Tip-off is set for 7:00 p.m.
