UNF grabbed another blowout win when it hosted Edward Waters College Monday night.

The Ospreys (5-4) dominated from the tip and despite a few runs from EWC it beat out the Tigers 90-68, three days after losing to Ohio State 99-64.

For the first time this season Matthew Driscoll’s team had fewer turnovers than its opponent and for the fifth time it led on the boards.

“I’ve got guys who are unselfish,” Driscoll said. “They aren’t pigs, after BaeBae [Daniels] turned it over he looked at me and said coach I was being unselfish.”

When asked about the change in rebounding this year Driscoll attributed the higher numbers to talent, not coaching.

“We went out and found guys who could shoot,” Driscoll said. “[Will] Wilson was great, but not a good shooter. There isn’t anything I did.”

One man who was both unselfish and dominant was Chris Davenport.

“We’ve got great teammates around us,” Davenport said when explaining his night.

Davenport’s tenth point came when Sean Brennan pick-pocketed Darion Green and found Davenport sitting in the key wide open for a dunk.

Another offensive weapon for the Ospreys was Travis Wallace. He scored a season-high 20 points and hit the double figure mark in scoring for the seventh time this season. Despite having a strong start to the season Wallace has only one goal in mind for the season.

“We have to win a championship,” Wallace said.

The Ospreys will be on a tough three game Big 10 road slate starting with a matchup against Alabama Wednesday. The Ospreys will then travel to Indiana Dec. 7 and after a break for finals week take on the currently number 1 ranked Michigan State Spartans Dec. 17.
