Northern Virginia beats ACM, 58-55

Strong second halves power Garrett, Potomac State to victories

CUMBERLAND — Shuaib Kamara scored 17 points to lead a balanced attack that carried Northern Virginia to a 58-55 victory over Allegany College of Maryland Wednesday at Bob Kirk Arena.

Khalil Jabbie and Tevin Jackson added 11 points and Brian McDonald had 10 for Northern Virginia (2-3), which made six three-point goals.

Alex Brayboy led Allegany with a game-high 25 points, hitting 10 field goals and all five of his free throws. Ricky Mosley was 9 of 10 from the foul line and had 15 points and six rebounds in what was an otherwise disappointing night for the Trojans.

“We only scored 55 points and were the bigger team,’’ AC coach Mike Baker admitted. “We just didn’t run our offenses very well and had only six offensive rebounds all night.

“We didn’t turn it over a lot, but it was just not a very good effort on our part, on offense or defense.”

Allegany (1-3) will host Baltimore City on Tuesday at 7 p.m.

Garrett    96

Westmoreland    72

MCHENRY — Garrett turned up the heat late in the first half and roared through the second in a victory of Westmoreland Wednesday evening.

Twelve players scored and Guila Panzo had a double-double with 10 points, 13 rebounds and two steals as the Lakers improved their record to 2-1.

Matt Gibson had a team-high 15 points, Din Moore added 13, D.J. Ritchie 12 and Marquise Green 10. Garrett had 24 assists, with Moore and Walter Griffin leading with five each.

Garrett was clinging to a four-point lead late in the first half when coach Dennis Gibson called a timeout and called for a bit more urgency out of his players, especially on the defensive side. And he got it.

The four-point lead grew to 12, 42-30 at halftime, and reached as many as 27 points (77-50) with nine minutes left in the second half.

“The bench really stepped it up and put a lot of pressure on them and we were able to get the lead to 12 points,’’ said Gibson. “Yannick Zanfack, Kurt Gangler, D.J. Ritchie and Walter Griffin did great jobs and in getting us that run.

“We talked about needing to continue to play that way after halftime, and in the second half we were able to keep the pressure up and really built on that lead.”

Andy Carter scored a game-high 29 points and Tommy Szatkowski had 15 for Westmoreland.

Garrett opens Maryland JUCO play on Friday at Southern Maryland at 7 p.m.

Potomac State    72

Howard    66

KEYSER, W.Va. — Breon Powell scored 16 points and hit a big three-point goal to put Potomac State on top to stay as the Catamounts beat Howard Wednesday.

Reggie Baker had a game-high 18 points, Peyton Hartman 12 points and seven rebounds and Carlton Drake 10 points for Potomac State (3-0). Mike Hatfield added eight points and seven rebounds.

Potomac State trailed 39-33 at halftime but increased its intensity after the break and used a 15-0 run to go up by eight with 12 minutes to play.

Howard used a 10-0 spurt to regain a two-point lead, but the Catamounts, after Hartman had picked up his fifth foul with seven minutes to go, rode a strong team effort the rest of the way to get the win. Hatfield’s rebounding to guard play from Powell, Brian Ogbonna and Marcus James were especially big in the second half.

Powell’s three-pointer with 1:30 to go snapped a 63-63 tie. Drake had a key drive to the basket later that kept the Cats on top.

Josh Johnson, Dolapo Olugbile and Tyrell Addison had 12 points each for Howard, which built its first-half lead on the strength of its offensive rebounding.

Potomac Sate plays at Northern Virginia, which has already beaten Allegany and Garrett, on Dec. 4.
