A little Isaiah Moses outside and a little Isaiah Grant inside added up to a lot of Dimond points as the Lynx defeated Barrow 75-46 in the first round.

The UAA-bound Moses displayed a wet jumper after draining 4-of-6 3-point bombs on his way to scoring a game-high 25 points.

The 6-foot-5 Grant made 8-of-11 field goals and collected a double-double with 19 points and 11 rebounds.

The Lynx had a third double-figure scorer in Aiden Ivanoff (10 points).

Dimond outscored Barrow 27-9 from 3-point land and pulled away with a nice second-quarter surge.

Dimond has advanced to the Classic semifinals and will face West in the 7 o’clock matchup.

Barrow’s Brendon Matthews led his team with 16 points on an effective 7-of-11 shooting.

Whalers big man Anthony Fruean added nine points and eight rebounds.
