Retos 23 in 2nd half too much for #13 WashU

ST. LOUIS, Mo. – The Brandeis University men's basketball team completed a sweep of their University Athletic Association (UAA) Midwest trip for just the second time ever today, as the Judges defeated 13th Ranked Washington University 67-62. 

The Judges were led by juniors Derek Retos (No. Attleboro, Mass./Brimmer and May School) and Gabriel Moton (St. Petersburg, Fla./St. Petersburg), who scored 37 of the team's 46 points in the second half as Brandeis overcame a four-point halftime deficit. Retos led all players with all of his game-high 23 points coming after the break, when he hit 6-of-9 from 3-point range, including four in a row at one point. Retos's 23 points off the bench were 11 more than the entire WashU reserves combined. With his six 3-pointers, Retos became just the seventh player with 150 for his career at Brandeis, moving into sixth overall with 154. He needs three more from downtown to move into the top five.
