WESTMINSTER, Md. – Johns Hopkins scored 11 of the final 14 points in the first half to open up a double-digit lead en route to a 72-46 win over McDaniel in the Centennial Conference (CC) men's basketball opener for both teams on Tuesday.

Devon Duvall (New Oxford, Pa./New Oxford) led the Green Terror (1-2, 0-1 CC) with eight points.

Michael Gardner led three players in double figures for the Blue Jays (4-0, 0-0 CC) with 16 points.

After five ties in the first eight minutes, Austin Cannon (Hampstead, Md./Manchester Valley) hit a pair of free throws to put McDaniel on top 15-13 with 11:34 remaining in the first half.

Kyle Doran hit a layup 1 minute, 20 seconds later to spark a 10-0 run that put Johns Hopkins in front 23-15 with 7:54 showing.

A Josh McWilliams (Newtown, Pa./Council Rock North) three-point play snapped the run and sparked a 7-2 that closed the deficit to three but the Blue Jays once again had the answer, building a 36-25 halftime advantage.

The lead quickly swelled to 17 before 2:31 had elapsed in the second half. A Benjamin Young (Grasonville, Md./Kent Island) layup and Isaiah Denard (Staten Island, N.Y./Tottenville) 3-pointer trimmed the deficit to 12 two minutes later but that's as close as the hosts would get.

Johns Hopkins responded with seven straight points to push the lead to 19 with 12:15 remaining.

Denard and Young finished with six points each while McWilliams and Cannon had five apiece. McWilliams led the way on the glass with six rebounds.

The Green Terror returns to action at Penn State-Schuylkill on Sunday. Game time is 2 p.m.
