The Buccaneers bolted to an 8-0 lead and never trailed. Good’s 3-pointer made it a 17-3 margin just 4½ minutes into the game. ETSU led 45-31 at halftime and was never threatened.
Kameron Gibson led the Catamounts (5-17, 2-7) with 28 points, Matt Halvorsen scored 16 and Carlos Dotson had 15 points with 11 rebounds.
