by connecting on 5-of-9 from beyond the 3-point arc.
The Golden Grizzlies were red-hot in the second half, draining 63 percent of
their shots from the floor, including 9-of-14 from 3-point range. The Jaguars

game. The Jaguars would get no closer than 11 the rest of the way, as the
Golden Grizzlies cruised to victory.
