Longwood, coming off a 112-63 loss at Arkansas two nights earlier, was grossly overmatched in this one.
It didn't help the Lancers that freshman Michael Kessens, who averaged 15 points and 10 rebounds in the their first three games, picked up his fourth foul with 4:24 left in the first half and fouled out less than two minutes into the second.
Kessens had the task of guarding center Echenique. Both are 6 feet 9, but the 205-pound Kessens gives up 55 pounds to Echenique.
Echenique came into the game having made a combined 13 of 14 field goals the first three games, and the Bluejays fed him in the post to exploit the matchup. He made 5 of 7 shots during his best outing of the season.
The Bluejays have won 93 straight home games when scoring 70 or more points and 42 regular-season November games in a row.
