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 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.
