Baker’s 33 helps PSC beat Garrett

MCHENRY  — Reggie Baker scored almost at will against Garrett, racing to 25 points in the first half and finishing with 38, during Potomac State’s 91-73 shakedown of the Lakers Wednesday in the penultimate regular season outing for both schools.

Baker rained 11 field goals, including three 3-pointers, on the Lakers. He added 13 points at the foul line and was part of an extremely accurate night for Potomac State. The Catamounts made 27 of 33 (81.8 percent) free throws, outscoring Garrett (15 of 20) by 12 points at the line.

Marcus Banks was perfect in nine tries at the foul line and added five field goals to finish with 22 points. DeAndre Jenkins added 12 points and Derylton Hill had eight. Hill and Jenkins both had seven rebounds, Baker had four steals and Banks four assists. Marcus James scraped together six points, six rebounds and three steals.

“They simply outplayed us,” said Garrett head coach Dennis Gibson. “They trapped us well and helped force 11 turnovers in the first half, and when we kept the ball we didn’t shoot well. The two biggest factors were Baker and Banks being able to score all game. They put the ball in the bucket every time they needed something.”

Garrett, which was led by Frank Holloway’s 23 points, got as close as one point late in the first half and then as close as four in the second before Potomac State went on a run of its own to regain momentum.

Holloway added nine rebounds and four assists, D.J. Ritchie scored 16 points and Chris Scarlett had 10 points and five assists.

The Cats (17-8) finish the regular season Saturday at home against Cecil at 2 p.m. Garrett (17-9) finishes with Northern Virginia at home, 6 p.m. on Saturday.
