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.

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.

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.
