James Madison at Miami Game Notes
Nov. 24, 2012 · Millett Hall · Oxford, Ohio
- Miami won back-to-back games for the first time this season and for the first time since the first two games of February last year (Eastern Michigan, at Ball State). Next Saturday at IPFW, the RedHawks will go for their first three-game winning streak since a five-game run in February, 2011.
- Miami hit 12-of-25 shots (48.0 percent) in the first half, its best opening 20-minute period of the young season. The RedHawks' previous best was 37.9 percent against Grambling State (Nov. 13). Miami also registered its best half of the year against the Tigers, 52.9 percent after intermission.
- Miami had 20 points off turnovers on Saturday, besting its season average. In its previous four game, the RedHawks totaled 78 points off opponent turnovers, an average of 19.5 per outing.
- Miami has tallied at least 70 points in all three wins this season. The RedHawks tallied 76 on Saturday, 72 vs. William & Mary and 80 vs. Grambling State.
- Miami connected on nine 3-pointers, tying a season high. The RedHawks also had nine against Grambling State.
- Freshman Reggie Johnson led the RedHawks with a career-high 21 points, his second 20-point performance in five games as a RedHawk. Miami players have hit the 20-point mark three times this season: Johnson (vs. Grambling State) and Allen Roberts (at William & Mary) were the only other 20-point performances for Miami this year. Johnson's 21 points are the most by a RedHawk this season.
- Junior Quinten Rollins dished out a career-high 10 assists, topping the seven he tallied against Grambling State on Nov. 13. Rollins' 10 assists were the most by a Miami player since Tyler Dierkers amassed 10 against Mississippi State on Nov. 25, 2007. A total of 10 points gave Rollins his first career double-double.
- Junior forward Jon Harris led Miami in rebounding for the third time this season. He totaled eight, tying his career high from earlier this year (Grambling State).
