Five players reach double figures for Green Terror in 73-70 overtime win over Washington

WESTMINSTER, Md. - Miguel Jones (Baltimore, Md./North County) netted 18 points to lead five McDaniel players in double figures in a 73-70 overtime victory against Washington (Md.) in Centennial Conference (CC) men's basketball action on Saturday.

Marcus Dyson (Scotch Plains, N.J./Union Catholic) added his second double-double of the season with 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Green Terror (8-8, 4-5 CC), who got 12 points each from Woody Butler (Smithsburg, Md./Middletown), Michael Jarboe (Monrovia, Md./Urbana) and Michael McClain (Takoma Park, Md./Montgomery Blair).

Andrew Chambers led the Shoremen (8-6, 6-4 CC) with 22 points while Kevin Breslin and Alan Kines chipped in 17 and 15, respectively.

In a game that featured 14 ties and 11 lead changes, McDaniel built a lead as large as 10 with 16:39 remaining in the second half but watched that lead evaporate over the next seven minutes.

Washington never opened up an advantage of more than three points - coming on a Breslin fastbreak layup with 6:41 to play in regulation - before a McClain basket-and-foul play 28 seconds later evened the game for the ninth time.

McDaniel never trailed after that but the Shoremen did force five more ties - the final coming on two Breslin free throws with 6.4 seconds on the clock.

Jones converted an old fashioned three-point play on the Green Terror's first possession of overtime and the squad held the lead the rest of the way.

A Dyson jumper stretched the lead to as many as five with 3:34 to play.

After Dyson made it a 69-65 game with 1:36 to play, Sal Schittino sliced the deficit to one with a 3-pointer 26 seconds later before four Jones free throws in the final minute preserved the victory.

Knotted at 4-all, Jarboe canned a 3-pointer with 14:52 on the first-half clock and added a fastbreak layup to give the hosts a five-point advantage.

Stil trailing by five on a Butler dunk at the 7:18 mark, Kines and Mark DeBoy each hit treys to help the Shoremen take a 20-19 lead with 5:33 showing.

The teams exchanged the lead five times over the next three minutes before a Jones 3-pointer and McClain layup helped the Green Terror take a 29-26 lead into the locker room.

A 13-6 run over the first 3:21 of the second half allowed McDaniel to open up the only double-digit advantage of the contest.

Butler finished a rebound shy of a double-double while Jarboe handed out eight assists and grabbed seven boards.

The Green Terror returns to action at Swarthmore on Wednesday. Game time is 7 p.m.
