SALISBURY, Md. – In the final road game of the 2016-17 season, the Southern Virginia University men's basketball team fell 77-67 to Salisbury University.
A tough first have of shooting led to a 21-point deficit at the half for the Knights (4-19, 2-14 CAC), who shot just 1-11 from three-point range.
The second half, however, was a different story as Southern Virginia connected five times from downtown and shot over 46% from the field. Rashay Douglas had 18 of his 25 points in the second half to lead all scorers and help the Knights outscore the Sea Gulls (19-4, 14-2 CAC) by nine in the second half.
The Knights only had nine turnovers in the second half, but Salisbury, who clinched a first-round bye in the Capital Athletic Conference tournament, only had nine the entire game.
Southern Virginia returns home on Wednesday to host Christopher Newport at 7:30 p.m. in the Knight Sports Arena.
