Knights too much for EUP


EDINBORO — The Edinboro men’s basketball team had four players score in double figures against local rival Gannon on Saturday afternoon, but that was not enough as the Scots suffered a 71-59 loss to the Golden Knights in a PSAC West matchup at McComb Fieldhouse.

Edinboro fell to 0-6 in PSAC West play and 7-9 overall, while Gannon boosted its record to 5-2 in the conference and 10-7 on the season.

Bryan Theriot led four Fighting Scots in double figures with 17 points. The senior made five of six free throws on the day, tying Jim Prokell for the second-most made free throws in school history with 358. Prokell played for Edinboro from 1969-72.

Henri Wade-Chatman followed with 12 points, while Jonny Marsh had 11 markers. Xavier Churnac added 10 points and Alex Moore pulled down a team-high eight rebounds.

Adam Blazek paced the Golden Knights with 18 points and Girbran Smith had 14 markers. Raphell Thomas Edwards grabbed a game-high nine boards.

AC loses sixth straight

GRANVILLE, Ohio — Hampered by just a 5-for-29 performance from behind the three-point line, the Gators saw their losing skid reach six games with a 55-46 loss to North Coast Athletic Conference foe Denison.

Despite the shooting woes, the Gators (3-12, 0-8 NCAC) found themselves ahead 43-42 with 6:48 left in regulation. However, Allegheny managed just one field goal the rest of the way, as Denison (7-8, 3-5) closed the contest on a 13-3 run to pull away for the victory.

Ryan Stanko and Brandon Smith each scored 13 points for the Gators, with Smith grabbing eight rebounds to share the team lead with Clark Tritto.

Denison was led on the scoresheet by Alex Longi, who tallied a game-high 18 points, while Briggs King came off the bench to tally a 15-point, 10-rebound double-double.
