In-form Keith Langford finished with 27 points making 7/9 threes, but could not prevent Oded Kattash’s side from jumping to a 2-0 start. Howard Sant-Roos posted an 18-point, 10-rebound double-double.
The visitors favored by the high tempo led most of the way, even got a double-digit advantage in the third period and were up 72-64 early in the fourth, but could not seal the deal and fell to 1-1.
