WASHINGTON, DC -- St. Andrew's advanced to the MAC Semifinals with a convincing 57-52 win over Maret at GDS. Below is a run down of five takeaways from this hard-fought postseason contest. 

SMALLS SETS THE TONE

Not long after the opening tip, St. Andrew's made it known that they weren't going to give ground easily, and Colin Smalls was the tone setter on both ends. The consistently improving class of 2020 point guard was outstanding defensively, dodging picks with relative ease and using his underrated strength and craftiness to consistently beat his man and make things happen offensively. 

NEUTRALIZING JARVIS

Credit EJ Jarvis for finishing the game with 27 points, but its no embellishment that he worked for every single one of those points. The Yale commit, who faced relentless double and triple teams, led the game with 13 free throw attempts, but also showcased his high motor and hit the offensive glass for several second chance points. Other than that, St. Andrew's pretty much shut down Maret's entire offense for a majority of this game, but Jarvis did manage to navigate his way to the rim a bit more efficiently in the second half.
