Bobcats bothered by Yellow Jackets

Trojans fall to 0-6 after 15-point loss to Monroe CC

FROSTBURG — The Frostburg State men’s basketball team suffered a 99-75 loss to Randolph-Macon Sunday afternoon at Bobcat Arena.

The Yellow Jackets (2-3) used a 12-0 run midway through the opening half to grab a 52-29 lead at halftime. RMC led by as many as 23 points in the first half and extended its lead to 30 in the second before winning by 24.

Thirteen different players scored for Randolph-Macon as it snapped a three-game losing streak. The visitors shot 61.4 percent (35-of-57) from the floor and outscored the Bobcats (0-5) 58-30 in the paint.

Frostburg had three players score in double figures in the losing effort. Sophomore Nick Smoot scored a team-high 18 points behind three three-pointers. Senior Aaron Bellamy was second with 16 points and five assists, while Tyler Campbell added 10.

Joshua Corbett hit a jumper at 13:21 in the first half to pull FSU within three, 14-11. Moments later, Smoot scored two of his 12 first half points as Frostburg trailed just 19-14.

Starting at 11:07, Randolph-Macon extended its lead from 19-14 to 31-14 behind a 12-0 run. The Jackets slowly pushed the lead to 23 points, 52-29 just before the halftime buzzer.

The Bobcats cut the deficit to 19 points twice in the early minutes of the closing half. However, RMC extended its lead to a game-high 30 (89-59) with 6:14 remaining.

Frostburg returns to action on Wednesday when it opens CAC play with Mary Washington at home at 8 p.m.

Jim Brown Classic

Monroe CC    79

Allegany    64

HAGERSTOWN — Allegany College of Maryland struggled to get warm and Monroe Community College was able to take advantage of the cold spell to pull ahead and beat the Trojans by 15 points Saturday in the second day of the Jim Brown Classic at Hagerstown Community College.

Monroe (N.Y.) put five players into double figures in scoring, being led by Isaiah Davis and his 18 points, including two three-pointers. Dykweil Brian added 14 points, Anthony Hemmington scored five and Tashawn Desire finished with 11. artist Jackson was the fifth player in double digits with 10 exactly.

The Trojans really struggled in the first half, digging themselves into a 46-26 deficit over the first 20 minutes before adding 38 more points in the second half.

“Our shots weren’t falling and theirs were,” Allegany coach Tommie Reams said. “We had two players who normally shoot around 50-percent from the floor finishing a combined 17-percent. It just took us too long to get going on offense.

“We did get some really good minutes from both Tyson Reynold and Backpoto Swai. Both of those guys were on the floor for over 35 minutes. We had some injuries that forced them out there at first, but the way they played allowed them to stay out there.”

Swai led the team with 23 points and made it a double-double by grabbing 10 rebounds. Reynold chipped in with 15 points and had 11 boards for a double-double of his own. Garrett D’Atri finished with 14 points and five assists, and Davon Wilson had nine rebounds to go with five points.

Allegany has lost six straight to open the season, but comes home to open the Maryland JUCO Conference schedule on Wednesday when it hosts CCBC-Catonsville.
