Low led the game with 25 points, followed by his teammate Sean Rodriguez with 21.
For Arroyo, guard Tirrell Sanders and forward Darnell McDavid both knocked down 18 points, but it wasn’t enough against the Highlanders big forwards.

On the Dons side, both Sanders and McDavid made a pair of 3-pointers.
Despite the loss, Sanders said the Dons are still confident they’ll make the playoffs. He also gave credit to opposing guard Rodriguez.
“He’s a real good player, and a good passer,” Sanders said.
