"Obviously some words were exchanged in the locker room going into to halftime," Markel said after the teams managed just seven points apiece in the final 10:53 of the first half. "But we have to snap out of that. First half it's like (we're) dragging, the second half OK, now they look like the Hoyas. We've got to get out that. Because we have that ability. We can start and finish games on a high note."

Starks: Last season the point guard made shots from all angles including 41 percent from beyond the arc. Over the last four games this season, the ball rarely found the net for the confident scorer whether challenged defensively or wide open. Against Lipscomb, Starks went 2 for 13 and missed six of eight 3-point attempts. The previous season's version returned against High Point as Starks sank 8 of 11 attempts including 2 of 4 on 3-point tries. "The ball just went in," Starks said. "I really honestly couldn't tell you. I've been getting up extra reps. Before the ball just wasn't going in, but tonight obviously it went in."

"We did have a stretch where… our execution dipped," Head Coach John Thompson III said. "Our execution was not where it needed to be. During that lull in the first half, Moses came in and got some key rebounds."
