Omaha coasts to 112-65 win over Division III Buena Vista

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) Zach Jackson scored 15 points and led five Omaha players reaching double figures Tuesday night in a 112-65 win over Division III member Buena Vista.

KJ Robinson added 13 points, Tre'Shawn Thurman contributed 12, while Mitchell Hahn and Kyler Erickson had 10 apiece for Omaha (2-3), which hit 58 percent of its 69 shots from the floor and was 16 of 34 from long range. Tra-Deon Hollins dished out eight assists and was one of three Mavericks to finish just short of double figures with nine points.

Omaha never trailed and took a 54-34 advantage into the break, then continued to pull away over the final 20 minutes. Alex Allbery's bucket with 3:32 left gave the Mavericks their largest margin of the game at 107-56.

Buena Vista, which treated the game as an uncounted exhibition, got 15 points and nine rebounds from Kennedy Drey and 10 from David Jeffries.
