BALTIMORE – Prince George’s Community College freshman guard Mykal Johnson picked the right time to get the first triple-double of his college career because it came on a night when Gus Stone turned in one of his best performances ever.
Stone ended up with 32 points, a career-high of 10 rebounds plus seven assists.
That double-double, along with what Johnson did (21 points, 10 rebounds plus a career-high 10 assists) helped Prince George’s Community College to a 91-80 victory over Garrett College Saturday.
PGCC improved to 13-5 overall after the win in a Maryland Junior College Athletic Association game (JUCO). The Owls also are 4-3 in JUCO games this season.
Stone has scored at least 30 points twice in his last five games, and is the fourth Owl to post a double-double this season.
James Hagins did the same thing in the win. He finished with career double-double No. 5, finishing up with 14 points and 11 rebounds. He also tied a career best with five blocks.
Kennith Ford also scored 12 points for PGCC in its third consecutive victory.
The Towson men’s basketball team had struggled in Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) play during the first part of this season, and when the Tigers faced first-place College of William & Mary in a road game last Saturday, they wanted to change things around.
Towson did just that – with a lot
of help from Fort Washington native Mike Morsell. He scored a game-high 23 points as the Tigers stunned the Tribe, 99-73.
William & Mary was unbeaten in conference play heading into this game, but Towson (13-6, 3-3) shot 64 percent from the field and rolled to a surprisingly easy victory over the Tribe (12-5, 5-1). Morsell made six of eight from the field during a second half that saw the Tigers score 50 points and shoot 68 percent.
Morsell said Towson was fired up for this contest.
“We knew we had to get this win,” Morsell said. “It was a must-win (game), and we played like it on defense. We needed a win like this on the road against a good team.”
Morsell, through this game, was the second-leading scorer on the team. He was averaging 13.0 points per game. Zane Martin is the team leader at 18.2 points per game, and he and Morsell are the only two players who average in double-figures, but Towson still is scoring 76.3 points per game.
Maryland jumped out to a seven-point first-half lead, but Ohio State came back quickly and took charge as the Buckeyes rolled to a 91-69 victory over the Terps in a Big 10 game on Thursday in Columbus.
Michal Cekovsky sparked Maryland with 18 points (career high) while Joshua Tomaic scored a career-best 11 points.
Kevin Huerter and Anthony Cowan Jr. both ended up with 12 points.
Despite trailing early, Ohio State pushed the lead to 28 in the second half. The Buckeyes were coming off a victory over then-No. 1 Michigan State and the Terps were short-handed as they had just eight scholarship players available due to injury and illness.
