Free throws lift Kenyon past Allegheny

MEADVILLE — Kenyon used an 8 for 12 showing from the free throw line in overtime to pull away for a 61-53 victory over Allegheny in a physical, defensive-oriented North Coast Athletic Conference men’s basketball contest at the Wise Center.

The game featured 11 lead changes and four ties over the final 14 minutes of the second half. But after Allegheny (3-16, 0-12 NCAC) was unable to convert on the final possession of regulation, Kenyon (9-9, 6-5) broke a 53-all tie by making eight foul shots over the final two minutes of the extra session to pick up the win.

Josh Valentic led Allegheny with 14 points, with Ryan Stanko adding 11. Sam Calhoun narrowly missed his first career double-double, scoring nine points to go with his career-high 13 boards.

Kenyon’s Brian Lebowitz scored a game-high 16 points, while also adding 12 rebounds for the double-double. Ikenna Nwadibia scored 15 points for the Lords, with Tim Connolly adding 10.

EDINBORO — Henri Wade-Chatman’s 3-pointer in the last second of regulation knotted the game at 72 apiece to send the PSAC West contest to overtime, before visiting Pitt-Johnstown outscored the Fighting Scots 19-10 in the bonus period to earn the 91-82 victory on Saturday afternoon at McComb Fieldhouse.

Edinboro falls to 8-11 overall and 1-8 in PSAC West play, while the Mountain Cats improve to 11-9 on the season and 4-6 in the conference.

Wade-Chatman paced four Scots in double-figures with 19 points. Bryan Theriot notched his fifth double-double of the season and 23rd of his career with 16 points and a game-high 13 rebounds. Johnathan Logan scored 16 markers while Alex Moore dropped in 14 points. Jonny Marsh posted a game-high nine assists.

Bill Luther led all scorers with 25 points for the Mountain Cats. Nate Snodgrass and Matt Palo each added 13 points, while A.J. Leahey scored 12 markers off the bench.

  • Steelers camp Steelers LB Spence caps lengthy comeback

    The whistle blew and Sean Spence sprinted forward, each cathartic step distancing the linebacker from the horrific knee injury that threatened to end his NFL career before it even really began.
    Spence almost gleefully smashed into fullback Bryce Davis during the Pittsburgh Steelers’ first full contact drill of training camp on Monday. The two tussled for several seconds before Davis — his fists full of Spence’s jersey — pulled them both to the ground.

Poll

A South Carolina woman was arrested recently after the McDonald’s employee let her daughter spend the day playing in a nearby park while she worked her shift. The decision has created a debate over “free-range” parenting and whether it’s a good idea or not. What’s your take?

I’m fine with it. If she cannot afford childcare, what choice does she have?
This is horrible and very bad parenting.
I’m torn. It’s not right what she did, but it sounds like the mother had few other options.
