Also reaching double digits were Gemil Holbrook (12), Shep Garner (11), Manny Taylor (11), and D'Andre Vilmar (10).

The Penn State-bound Garner posted five assists, four steals, and four boards. He drilled three shots from beyond the arc in the opening eight minutes.

Ahead by 41-34, Roman closed the third quarter with a 10-3 spurt that included Vilmar's three-point play, TreVaughn Wilkerson's inside bucket, and Holbrook's left-wing trey.
