Hartman powers Potomac to win

KEYSER, W.Va. — Peyton Hartman scored 24 points to lead four scorers in double figures and power Potomac State to an 86-70 win over Catonsville in the second day of the Catamounts season-opening tournament on Sunday.

Hartman, a former high school star at Keyser, hit nine field goals, with four being three-pointers, and a pair of free throws to lead all scorers, and also had a game-high 12 rebounds. He was especially effective during a key stretch late in the game as the Catamounts moved to 2-0 under new head coach Justin Anderson.

“Peyton had four fouls, and Catonsville made a little run on us and we felt we had to get Payton back in there at the nine-minute mark,’’ said Justin Anderson. “Having him in there really helped us. He creates such a mismatch at the top of the key and also down on the block.”

Reggie Baker knocked down 19 points and Michael Hatfield and Brian Ogbonna had 10 for the Catamounts. Quinton Jackson led Catonsville with 21 points and Tamir Bolger added 16.

On Saturday, the Catamounts beat Southern Maryland 91-84 in the season opener.

Baker poured in 32 points by hitting 13 field goals and 4 of 5 free throws to lead all scorers for the Catamounts, who led 56-41 at halftime.

“Reggie really came out with a lot of high energy and played really well in the transition,’’ said Anderson. “Collectively, our transition game was very helpful and effective over the weekend. I know our guys take pride in our conditioning and you could really see that. We will continue to work hard, play defense and play with toughness.

Hatfield added 12 points and Hartman 11 in Friday’s win.

Troy Cummings had 26 points and Juwan Cole 18 for Southern Maryland.

Potomac State will play again Wednesday, at home, against Howard at 7 p.m.
