Trojans ride Rievel to first conference win

McAtee, Linaburg lead Potomac State to 17-point victory

NORTH EAST  — Gina Rievel and Courtney Landis both broke the 20-point mark Wednesday evening to push Allegany College of Maryland to its first Maryland JUCO win after beating Cecil 77-65 on the road.

Rievel sank five three-pointers and eight field goals total to complement a 7 for 9 performance at the line. Landis, a first-team selection to the Times-News All-Area team last year at Allegany High School, made seven field goals and went 6 for 7 at the line to finish with 20 points.

Kierra Williams helped the Trojans’ cause with 14 points.

Cecil got 25 points from Mikalia Fraizer and 16 from Desiree Foye, but had only five players record at least a point.

The Trojans (3-6, 1-2 MDJUCO) finish the first half of the season Saturday at Westmoreland.

Potomac St.    72

Penn State-Dubois    55


DUBOIS Pa. — The Potomac State Lady Cats ended the opening portion of their season 8-2 after beating Penn State-Dubois 72-55 in their final time out before Winter Break.

Jenna McAtee led the way with 17 points but had five of Potomac State’s six three pointers on the night. Allegany High School graduate Lindsie Linaburg had 10 points with five steals and five rebounds for the Cats even with fouling out.

Potomac State jumped up to early, 12-1 lead and never gave that away, staying in control the whole night and leading by thirteen at the half, 37-24.

Potomac State has a long break before the next contest against Butler on Jan. 14.   

Men

Cecil 84, Allegany 71

NORTH EAST — Amadius Derweer got hot from behind the three-point line in the second half and Cecil College was able to hold off Allegany College of Maryland, 84-71, in a Maryland JUCO men’s basketball game Wednesday at Cecil.

Derweer scored 23 points for Cecil with six of his field goals being three-pointers, and most coming in the second half after Cecil led 43-42 at the break. Jeffon Powell scored 21 for Cecil, while Arnold Richmond scored 19 and Chris Slade 12.

Allegany was led by Tyson Reynold with 18 points and Garrett D’Atri and Davon Williams with 11 each. Reynold continued his string of double-doubles with 12 rebounds. Williams and Allson Reynold both had nine rebounds.

“It was a tale of two halves,” said Allegany head coach Tommie Reams. “We didn’t turn the ball over early and were right in it. The turnover bug got us in the second half, though, and we ended up playing in spurts. We’d get it down to a six-point game, then we’d commit a string of turnovers and have to fight back.

“We shot ourselves in the foot with mental mistakes, but the guys showed mental toughness. It was a very physical game. There was a lot of banging around, but the mental toughness was there. We just made mistakes down the stretch.”

Allegany (2-8) will play USC-Salkehatchie Friday, 2 p.m., at Bob Kirk Arena in the first round of the Allegany Christmas Classic. Prior to that, at 5 p.m., Hagerstown will take on Northern Virginia Community College.
