Potomac shocks Beaver

Hill leads way in win over No. 2 Titans

KEYSER, W.Va. — Derylton Hill led and the rest of his teammates followed as Potomac State upset the No. 2 team in NJCAA Division II, CCBC Beaver, 77-71, behind Hill’s 24 points and 13 rebounds Saturday night.

Hill led all players in scoring by sinking 11 field goals and 3 of 3 free throws. His 13 rebounds and five steals were also team highs. Reggie Baker added 20 points and six rebounds in a strong supporting role and Marcus Banks scored 13 points.

The Catamounts led 34-27 at halftime and were ahead 75-68 before a late Beaver three-pointer brought it as close as 75-71. From there, Baker was fouled and hit a pair of free throws to bring the score to its final.

“We finally were able to put two good halves together,” said Potomac State coach Justin Anderson. “The guys rallied behind Derylton’s effort and I’m really proud at what they did and how they did it. We controlled the tempo and the defense from the beginning until the end.”

Beaver moved up to No. 2 in the last poll after being the No. 4 team in the previous polling. The loss snaps an 11-game win streak for the Titans (21-3).

Potomac State (11-6, 5-1 Western Pennsylvania Collegiate Conference) plays at Westmoreland on Monday.

Garrett    67

Anne Arundel    58

MCHENRY — DeAndre Davis and Frank Holloway had double-doubles and Garrett turned in a solid second half to beat Anne Arundel in a Maryland JUCO Conference game Saturday night.

It was the 10th win in the last 14 for the Lakers, now 14-6 overall and 8-4 in the conference. Anne Arundel dropped to 15-8 and 5-6.

Davis scored 17 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, while Holloway had 16 points, 11 rebounds and four assists to lead Garrett. D.J. Ritchie added 14 points.

Ryan Hawkins had a game-high 20 points for Anne Arundel.

Garrett led 33-29 at halftime despite struggling against Anne Arundel’s pressure defense and turning the ball over 16 times.

Anne Arundel built a seven-point lead in the second half, but the Lakers responded well, handling the Pioneers pressure better and executing well on both ends of the floor. They had only six turnovers in the second half.

“We were bigger inside, but didn’t handle their pressure well in the first half. A lot of the turnovers were from us trying to play too fast,’’ said Garrett coach Dennis Gibson.

“Anne Arundel’s a good team, and we were rotating a lot of people into the game to try to wear them down. The guys stepped up and handled the pressure and made good plays in the second half after they got a seven-point lead on us.”

Davis was especially effective on the offensive boards. The Lakers went up by five with 2:30 left and stayed on top the rest of the way.

It was the first of four games in seven days for Garrett, which will play at Baltimore City on Tuesday, host Chesapeake on Thursday and play at Lord Fairfax (Va.) on Friday.

Montgomery    87

Allegany    78

CUMBERLAND — Tim Christian scored 22 points and Angelo Vaughn added 21 to push Montgomery past Allegany College of Maryland Saturday.

The Raptors put four players into double figures in scoring as Zach Kuran added 18 points and Andre Gaines 13.

Tyson Reynold stood out for Allegany with 29 points and 16 rebounds, and Alson Reynold had 12 points and 10 boards. Garrett D’Atri finished with 11 points.

The Trojans led 39-35 at halftime but found themselves trailing 79-73 with 55 seconds left. Rashad Murphy scored the last of his 11 points to cut the lead to 79-75 before Montgomery closed out on an 8-3 run.

Allegany (5-17) plays Wednesday at Hagerstown at 8 p.m.

Wesley    85

Frostburg State    49

DOVER, Del. — David Langan had 19 points and led four double-figure scorers as Wesley rolled past Frostburg State in a Capital Athletic Conference game.

Wayne Lennon added 14 points and 12 rebounds for Wesley (17-1, 9-1 CAC), which bolted to an early 19-2 lead and never trailed. It was 43-27 at halftime.

Kurt Gangler had 13 points and Jabari Kamau 11 points and 11 rebounds for Frostburg State (2-17, 1-10), which shot just 31 percent from the field.

FSU will host Penn State Harrisburg on Wednesday.
