What has been Texas A&M-Corpus Christi’s highest-scoring game?

In 2001, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and Belmont had a home-and-home series scheduled and Belmont won the first game in overtime 117-116, which tied the Islanders’ record for the most points ever scored in a game and was the most points the team ever allowed.
