JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Like a young man holding the door open for an old lady, UNF did what it was supposed to do Thursday night.
Head coach Matthew Driscoll used the match-up against the NAIA school Webber International to experiment with line-ups on the way to a 109 – 64 victory. The century plus point total was the most in school history since moving to D-I.
Webber (1-5) was clearly overmatched by the Ospreys (3-3). The fans at UNF Arena erupted as UNF crushed dunk after dunk, 10 total, over the smaller Warriors defense.
Every single UNF player wearing a jersey scored a field goal and five players scored in double figures in the blowout win.
Charles McRoy, Aaron Bodager and Sean Brennan put on a show — Bodager and Brennan from behind the arc, McRoy through the air.
After not scoring a field goal in the first five games of the season, Bodager caught fire from behind the arc. The 6-foot-5 redshirt freshman was 5-8 from 3-point range and finished the game with 18 points to lead all scorers. Brennan made his college debut and was a perfect 4-4 from three, finishing with 14 points.
More than one Osprey slammed the ball home Thursday night, but McRoy put on an aerial display normally reserved for a dunk contest. The highlight dunk came midway through the second half. The senior forward drove the base-line and elevated for a double clutch dunk that sent shivers through the stands.
Beau Beech and Dallas Moore had 12 points each and freshman Romelo Banks added 14 points and 4 rebounds.
UNF will travel to Savannah to play Savannah State Tuesday at 7 p.m.
