EDINBURG, Texas (AP) — Joseph Kilgore scored 31 points on 11-of-17 shooting and Texas A&M Corpus Christi cruised to a 94-72 win over Texas Rio Grande Valley on Wednesday night.

Jake Kocher had 16 points, and Rashawn Thomas added 13 points, 11 rebounds, and five assists for the Islanders (2-0), who shot 54 percent from the field and got to the free-throw line 36 times.

Antonio Green led UT Rio Grande Valley with 26 points. Nick Dixon added 13 and a team-best six boards. The Vaqueros were held to just 40.8 percent shooting, and struggled much of the night to take care of the ball, finishing with 26 turnovers.

After trailing briefly, Ehab Amin hit a 3-pointer which gave the Islanders a 17-14 lead. Texas A&M CC built an 11-point advantage (42-31) by the half.

The Vaqueros never cut the gap back below double digits.
