RADFORD, Va. (AP) Javonte Green had 21 points, a season-high 17 rebounds and four steals, and Cameron Jones scored a career-high 24 on 10-of-12 shooting to help Radford beat Gardner-Webb 72-62 on Saturday.
A 14-3 run gave Radford (21-10, 12-6 Big South) a 53-42 lead with 10:39 to play.
Two free throws apiece from Harold McBride and Jarvis Davis pulled Gardner-Webb (18-13, 10-8) within seven about three minutes later. But Radford’s Jalen Carethers sandwiched a jumper and a layup around a pair of free throws by R.J. Price to make it 61-48 with 6:38 remaining and the Bulldogs trailed by at least eight the rest of the way.
