KENT, OHIO – Both teams were unbeaten coming into the contest, but Revere showed more firepower in downing Roosevelt 61-48 on Friday night. Junior guard Jimmy Salamone scored 27 points to lead the Minutemen’s attack.

Revere missed their first seven shots, but snapped back nicely in rolling to a 29-16 halftime lead. Their overall shooting percentage for the game was a fine 53% (21 for 40).

The second half was a 32-32 standoff.

Revere had their largest lead of the game when senior guard Julian Kent put in a shot with 4:23 remaining in the third quarter to make the score 37-19.

Roosevelt fought back, but the closest they could get was 8 points at 42-34 when Zachary Common buried a 3-pointer 30 seconds into the fourth quarter. Common, a senior guard, led the Rough Riders in scoring with 18 points.

A couple of fourth-quarter dunks by senior forward Hunter Drenth plus near-perfect free throw shooting by the rest of the Revere squad enabled the Minutemen to extend their season record to 7-0. With the loss, Roosevelt falls to 7-1.
