PLYMOUTH âÂ Plymouth coach Dave Duncan wanted to see his players to hit a couple points in the second half: Extend the defensive pressure to the 3-point line, get better ball movement against the Knox zone.

Plymouth held the visiting Redskins to four points after the break while scoring at an efficient 10-of-21 clip from the field, and the Pilgrims stayed unbeaten with a lopsided 57-22 win at home at The Rock Wednesday.
