The next day, Silva continued his dominance and had a triple-double, filling up the stat sheet with 16 points, 13 rebounds and 13 blocks in a 91-85 win over Lamar Community College.
Silva’s hot streak continued in Tuesday night’s annihilation of the Plainsmen from Northeastern Junior College and came close to yet another triple-double, with 12 points, 11 rebounds and 7 blocks in the 94-67 win.
