The Bears shot 35 of 45 from the line for 78 percent, with Spieth going 19 of 22. Obi Okolie scored 15 points and Joshua Howard added 14 for Brown (1-1). Tavon Blackmon had 13 points and made 7 of 10 free throws. Kahlil Dukes had 16 points to lead Niagara (0-2). The Bears took the lead for good at the 11-minute mark of the first half. Niagara stayed within single digits and pulled to 64-60 with about nine minutes left, but did not get closer. Brown used a 17-10 spurt to make it 81-70 with three minutes left. Travis Fuller scored eight of his 10 points during the stretch.

Although Kenseth was frustrated with his own spotter and Busch felt partially responsible afterward, Bowman couldnt help but feel guilty. check out this siteI will go talk to the No. 20 and explain what happened, Bowman said. I feel bad, but there was really nothing I could do. You get defensive there into Turn 1 and his spotter cleared him because he just drove across the nose like he thought he was clear. http://www.blueridgefilmfest.com/aicamdentucker/2016/10/07/some-basic-insights-on-establishing-essential-issues-in-course-for-interviewIts unfortunate and I hate that. Maybe I just got in there too deep but I was against the inside wall when we made contact. The last couple of restarts I just didnt do a good job and we should have been leading that last restart to begin with, he added. That part of it is unfortunate and yeah, what happened to the No. 20, I just hate taking somebody out of the Chase. It ruined our day too. After earning his first career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series pole, Bowman was the class of the field throughout the day, leading a race-high 194 laps. But that was all marred by the run-in with Kenseth.
