The Mariners broke out to 12-0 and 29-2 leads before coasting to a 42-14 halftime advantage. Vaughn connected on only 4 of 25 first-half shots (16 percent); however, it did outscore the Merchant Marine Academy 36-35 in the second half.

Jihad Ceaser led Vaughn with 12 points and 5 rebounds. Justin Daughtry and Jason Ramos had nine points apiece.

The loss Sunday dropped the Warriors into Monday's consolation game, where they lost 70-37 to McDaniel College of Westminster, Md. Sub-par shooting again did in the Warriors, who connected on only 4 of 19 shots (21 percent) in the opening half en route to a 36-15 halftime deficit.
