— CUMBERLAND — Davon Williams and Tyson Reynold combined for 42 points and 25 rebounds to lead Allegany College of Maryland to their second straight win with a 66-55 handling of Harford Wednesday at Bob Kirk Arena.

Reynold led everyone by scoring 22 points and paired up with Williams’ 20 to account for 63.6 percent of the Trojans offense. The two also led the team in rebounds with Reynold posting 15 boards and Williams adding 10.

Garrett D’Atri added nine points for ACM and Rashad Murphy finished with eight more. Allegany also finished with 17 blocks as a team.

The back-to-back wins account for half of the Trojans’ season total and allows them to end a five-game homestand at 2-3.

Harford’s Tulvan Lambert led his team with 13 points. Chidozie Omile scored nine points before fouling out.

The Trojans (4-13, 2-5 MDJUCO) play another conference game on Saturday when they visit Frederick at 7 p.m.

KEYSER, W.Va. — Reggie Baker and Derylton Hill each scored 20 points Wednesday evening as Potomac State picked up its second conference win with a 26-point victory over Westmoreland.

Marcus Banks, with 15 points, and Jaron Burnell with 10 made five Cats with at least 10 points.

While the Wolfpack was very accurate from the foul line (20 of 23) the Catamounts countered by shooting 38 for 68 from the floor.

Potomac State (6-5, 2-1 Western Pennsylvania Collegiate Conference) will play at CCAC-Boyce at 2 o’clock on Saturday.

Northern Virginia     85

ANNANDALE, Va. — Frank Holloway scored 26 points, D.J. Ritchie had 21 and Corey Groom 17 to lead Garrett College to an overtime win at Northern Virginia in college men’s basketball Wednesday night.

Holloway made 10 field goals and 6 of 6 free throws, including two late in overtime to give the Lakers (11-4) the lead for good. Ritchie made seven field goals, including all four of the team’s three-point goals, and 3 of 5 foul shots, while Groom hit five shots from the field and 7 of 10 from the line.

Garrett led 38-32 at halftime, lost the lead and trailed by as many as seven points with nine minutes left in regulation, then pulled it out in the overtime for a big road win.

“When we lost the lead and got down by seven, we kept our composure and kept battling,’’ said Garrett coach Dennis Gibson. “We had some poor shooting against their zone, but we kept battling.

“It was a back-and-forth game, and a very good game. They had just beaten Baltimore, and had beaten us twice last year, so this is a very good win for us.”

Marquise Green added 10 points for Garrett. Holloway had 10 rebounds, DeAndre Davis eight rebounds, and Grimm eight assists.

Garrett led by four in the final minute, but a three-point shot by Chad Canady and a foul shot by Mortimer Berchie with 1.4 seconds left forced the overtime.

In the overtime, Holloway broke the final tie with two free throws and Groom added another to put Garrett up 85-82. Joe Cabrera made a free throw with seven seconds left to make it a two-point game, and the Lakers were able to inbound the ball and run out the clock from there.

Canady had 25 points for Northern Virginia (8-9).

The Lakers play again Friday, at Maryland JUCO-leading Dundalk, at 5 p.m.
