Flying Dutchmen hold McDaniel to 40 points through first 34 mintues

ANNVILLE, Pa. – Joe Meehan netted a game-high 20 points, including a 13-for-14 showing from the line, to lead Lebanon Valley to a 68-56 victory over McDaniel in non-conference men's basketball action on Sunday.

Devon Lesniak (Westminster, Md./Winters Mill) paced the Green Terror (2-3) with 10 points while Michael Jarboe (Monrovia, Md./Urbana) added nine.

Danny Brooks and Anthony Trautman also reached double figures for the Flying Dutchmen (4-1) with 13 and 12 points, respectively.

Behind two points each from four different Lebanon Valley players, the hosts built an 8-2 lead over the game's first 4:31.

After Jarboe made it a 12-8 game with 12:28 to play, Sean McIntosh halted a nearly two-minute scoreless drought to extend the lead back to six with 11:18 on the clock.

With 2:46 on the clock, Mitch Belella (Smithsburg, Md./St. Maria Goretti) made a steal and completed an old-fashioned three-point play to halt a 15-4 stretch and pull McDaniel within 27-14.

Jarboe canned a triple and Meehan hit a 15-footer in the final 1:45 of the first half to make it a 29-18 game at the intermission.

A Meehan 3-pointer, a pair of stellar defensive plays leading to a fast-break layup and two Danny Brooks free throws accounted for a 7-0 burst to swell the advantage to 37-18 before a minute had elapsed in the second half.

A Jordan Stewart foul-line jumper off a loose ball pushed the lead to 20 for the first time, opening up a 40-20 advantage for the Flying Dutchmen with 16:49 to play.

A Brooks layup with 11:47 on the clock stretched the lead to as many as 29 but the Green Terror tallied 16 of the game's next 23 points to close within 61-41 with 6:01 showing.

After Lebanon Valley pushed the lead back to 65-43 with 3:57 to play, McDaniel tallied nine straight points to close to within 65-52 en route to the 12-point loss.

Lesniak, who entered the game averaging 19.5 points through the team's first four games, netted a season low in points after missing his first eight shots from the floor. He finished 2-for-10.

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