MBK: McCaffrey Drops 40 Points In Victory Over U-Mary
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Cameron McCaffrey scored a career-high 40 points and matched his career-high with six 3-pointers as Augustana picked up a thrilling 85-78 win over the University of Mary (3-12, 2-9 NSIC) on Friday night in Sioux Falls. Augustana (11-4, 7-4 NSIC) drilled a season-high 11 3-pointers while turning the ball over just twice in the contest.

Alex Richter caught fire in the second half and finished with 16 points. Richter has now scored in double-figures four consecutive games. Freshman guard Jamall Taylor also had a big night for the Vikings finishing with a season-high 11 points while knocking down 4 of 10 from the field, including three from behind the arc.

Augustana went ahead for good with 11:08 left in the game, after the game’s seventh tie score, on a 3-pointer by McCaffrey.

McCaffrey is the first player to reach 40 points in a game since Cody Schilling finished with 44 points against Minnesota, Crookston on Feb. 26, 2011.

Brandon Tyler led the University of Mary with 18 points on the night on 6 of 10 shooting, including 6 of 9 from 3-point range. Alex Dorr finished with 17 points while Jalen Jaspers added 12 points and five rebounds.

The Vikings shot 48 percent (17 of 35) from the field, including 12 of 31 (38 percent) from 3-point range. U-Mary finished the game shooting 51 percent from the field (17 of 29) and 44 percent (13 of 29) from 3-point range.

Augustana turned the ball over just two times in the game while the Vikings were able to force 15 turnovers, which led to 18 points for Augustana.

Augustana won for the second time this season while being out-rebounded. The Vikings finished with 34 rebounds to 36 for U-Mary but Augustana grabbed 14 offensive boards, scoring 15 second-chance points. Augustana also scored 30 points in the paint in tonight’s game.

Augustana jumped out to a 13-9 lead over the first 3:14 of the game with McCaffrey hitting his first three field goal attempts of the game. McCaffrey hit a fade away jumper and two 3-pointers helping the Vikings to an early lead.

U-Mary took a 14-13 lead with 15:57 to play in the first half after a Josh Turner 3-pointer and a block and fastbreak bucket by Jaspers.

From that point on the two teams battled back-and-forth to five tie scores and eight lead changes.

McCaffrey caught fire for Augustana scoring 22 points in the first half on 8 of 12 shooting, including 4 of 5 from 3-point range and 2 of 2 from the free throw line. Taylor and Richter each finished with eight points in the half.

Taylor knotted the game at 36 with 5:46 left in the first half with his second 3-pointer of the game and from there the Vikings were able to build a five-point lead at 41-36 with 3:36 to play. McCaffrey knocked down another 3-pointer and hit two free throws in the 8-0 run for the Vikings.

The Marauders got two buckets from Marc Musungayi and a 3-pointer from Mike Johnson in the final three minutes of the half but the Vikings held a 45-43 lead at the break.

U-Mary opened the second half on a 6-3 run to take a 49-48 lead with 15 minutes left in the game. Taylor answered for the Vikings drilling his third 3-pointer of the game putting Augustana back in front 51-49.

Over the next three minutes the score was tied two more times and the Marauders would take a two-point lead at 57-55 before McCaffrey 10 straight points to give the Vikings a 65-60 lead with 9:40 to play.

From that point on the Vikings went on a 12-5 run to extend its lead to 10 at 75-65. Richter drilled two 3-pointers in the stretch in between a McCaffrey layup that allowed him to match his career-high with 36 points in the game.

U-Mary was able to cut Augustana’s lead to five with 26 seconds left on a 3-pointer by Tyler but McCaffrey iced the game with two free throws to make the final score 85-78.

Augustana returns to action tomorrow night hosting Minot State University for the first time as conference opponents. Opening tip is set for 6 p.m. at the Elmen Center in Sioux Falls.
