Adams’ school record 10th three-pointer came with 3:26 left in the game. He broke the mark of nine set by his teammate Matt Mobley last season against VCU. Mobley was held to four points but had a career moment of his own as his first field goal of the game gave him 1,000 for his St. Bonaventure career. Mobley has 1,002 points in 55 career games. The senior started his college career at Central Connecticut State. “Coach just gives me the confidence for me to go out there and be myself,” Adams said. “My teammates understand that I would like to lead the team, so just going out there and trying to be the best leader I can be, make good shots and let the game come to me and they gave me a little bit more than I bargained for tonight.” Photo/Release: Bonnies BB Follow Adam Zagoria on Twitter
