WINTER PARK, Fla. (November 26, 2019) – Hutton Yenor drained six 3-pointers and led a big Rollins second half as the Tars posted a 101-87 win over Webber International.

Nearly half the Tars shots came from 3-point range, shooting 54 percent from long range and 55 percent overall. Webber was 47 percent from the field and were outrebounded by the Tars 35-31.
Rollins head coach Tom Klusman had to burn an early timeout as the Tars fell into an early 10-2 hole. Dayton Gumm hit back-to-back triples coming out of the huddle to get the Tars rolling and sparked a 19-3 run to put the hosts in control.
