Virginia Union University’s Tahj Harding scored 15 points to lead the Panthers to their largest margin of victory in four years as VUU downed Saint Augustine’s University 87-56 on Monday, January 17, in Raleigh, N.C.
The 31-point win was the largest margin of victory since VUU defeated Chowan University 90-51 on February 24, 2018.
Virginia Union’s Jordan Peebles scored 10 points in the win.
“This was a good team win for us on the road,” said VUU Head Men’s Basketball Coach Jay Butler said. “I thought the guys came out focused and played a complete game offensively and defensively. Keleaf Tate and Darius Hines got it going early from the 3-point line. Jordan Peebles, Robert Osborne, and Raemaad Wright did a good job scoring in the paint.”
The win raised VUU’s record to 12-3 on the season while the Panthers remained undefeated in the CIAA with a 5-0 record.
Virginia Union now travels to Bowie, Md., to face Bowie State University at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 19.
