MAYO 68, NORTHFIELD 58
Kevin Landrum picked up his first win as the Spartans' head coach. Mayo held off Northfield 68-58 thanks to hot shooting from Mo Hammadelniel (five 3-pointers, 19 points) and Michael Sharp (two 3-pointers, 15 points).
Mayo led 34-30 at the half and finished with nine 3-pointers as a team.
"It was nice to get a win on the home court today," Landrum said. "Northfield played hard on both ends and made things difficult for us. Our effort on both ends was encouraging."
