Kaleb Darrett knocked down a game-high 24 points backed by Rodney Hunter with 20. Isiaih Darrett contributed a double-double of 18 points and 10 rebounds seeing his first action in 10 games.

"We were up 25-11 after one quarter," said Tritons coach James Harris. "We didn't have a great second quarter, but showed good intensity in the third and coasted from there."

The Tritons (11-3) hit a season-high of 81 points.

"We had not played for two weeks, but the players are closer to where we want them to be," Harris added.

The Tritons get ready to visit city rival Cape Coral on Thursday.
