RICHMOND, Va. - An early start time and an arena full of school kids had no ill effect on Jacksonville State in its first road contest of the young season with a dominating 94-61 win over Richmond on Monday afternoon.

RU's Robins Arena was full of nearly 2,000 local school-aged kids as part of Dream Big Day at RU. The Gamecocks were able to silence the crowd by shooting 57 percent from the field and limiting the Spiders to just 38 percent. The 33-point win is the largest margin of victory for Jax State in a true road contest in its NCAA Division I history. It is also the largest winning margin on the road since beating Alabama-Huntsville 119-81 during the 1989 season under Bill Jones in the NCAA Divison II era. JSU moves to 2-0 on the season, while RU remained winless on the season at 0-2.
