At the half the Beavers were down seven after a big first half from freshman Kajaira Mays. The Blue Dragons stretched the lead to as many as 16, but the Beavers cut the lead to eight before the media time-out. Hutch’s size proved to be too much for us down the stretch. We gave up 21 offensive rebounds and Hutch converted 20 points on those rebounds.
