Freshman guard Omar Prewitt came off the bench to score 20 points and William & Mary rode an overwhelming edge on the boards to a 94-60 victory over Division III Goucher on Friday night in Williamsburg, Va.

Junior guard Marcus Thornton contributed 19 points and six assists and senior guard Julian Boatner scored all 15 of his points from beyond the arc on 5-of-8 shooting as William & Mary (6-4) -- coming off a 13-day break for exams -- showed no rust in winning for the fifth time in its last six games.

Goucher (4-4) was led by sophomore guard Kevin Miles, who came off the bench to score 15 of his 20 points in the second half.

The visitors didn't start a player taller than 6 feet 4 and were at a decided disadvantage inside against a Tribe frontcourt that included 6-9 forward Tim Rusthoven and 6-8 forward Kyle Gaillard. William & Mary outrebounded Goucher 46-27 and had a 25-5 edge in second-chance points.

William & Mary sophomore guard Terry Tarpey had a game-high 11 boards to go along with seven points, four steals and four assists. The 6-foot-6 Prewitt added seven boards.

A 3-pointer by Thornton 6:33 into the game gave the Tribe the lead for good at 12-10. Later in the half, William & Mary took control with an 11-0 run fueled by 3-pointers from reserve guard Brandon Britt and Boatner. The spurt gave the Tribe a 35-21 lead, which the Gophers never seriously challenged.

Thornton left little doubt, scoring nine points in an 11-2 William & Mary run in the first 3:41 of the second half as the Tribe rolled to a 56-29 lead.

With 1:17 left, end-of-the-bench senior Ben Whitlatch hit a 3-pointer to give William & Mary its biggest lead at 38 points.
