Grand Canyon Men’s basketball team was able to keep down a pesky Robert Morris University squad to emerge with a 75-61 victory at GCU Arena on Monday.
The Lopes led 48-28 at halftime, but were outscored by the Colonials 33 to 27 in the second half, aided by a GCU scoreless drought that lasted 5 1/2 minutes. During that time Robert Morris clipped the Lopes lead from 22 to 14 points but were never able to close that gap.
Josh Braun, Oscar Frayer and Casey Benson all had double figures for the Lopes and accounted for 50 of the team’s 75 points with Braun scoring 20.
Dachon Burke led Robert Morris with 15 points.
Grand Canyon is back in action on Saturday when they host Little Rock at GCU Arena. The game starts at 7:00 p.m.
