LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Koby Thomas displayed a near-perfect shooting touch, going 9 of 10 from the floor — 3 of 4 on 3-pointers — and finishing with 21 points as Robert Morris defeated Norfolk State, 75-53, on Friday for its second straight win.

Leondre Washington scored 16 points, Dachon Burke scored 15 and each was credited with five assists for the Colonials (2-3) in a contest that was part of the Grand Canyon Classic.

Thomas scored five quick points on a fast-break layup and a 3-pointer, pushing a six-point halftime lead to 36-25. Washington added a 3-pointer that increased the lead to 42-29. The margin stayed at double digits the rest of the way, growing to as many as 25 points.

Nic Thomas and Alex Long scored 12 each for Norfolk State (0-5).

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
