They were all early shots and long rebounds going to RMU, leading to some easy points. Meanwhile on the other end, the guy Redford guards is told to work him off the dribble and score. And that they did, and will continue to do. So, the net effect of Redford going 0-5 was difficult to overcome.
When Redford isn't hitting from deep he is a liability. His defense is horrendous.
