The Cavaliers men’s basketball team improved its winning streak to 12 games with a win at Marywood University, beating them 76-63 on Saturday, Feb. 4. The team defeated Marywood at home earlier this season but lost to the Pacers on the road last season by a score of 57-55.

“I think losing to them last year really motivated the team to go out and perform well,” assistant coach Saleem Brown said.

The team received great contributions from everyone. Senior guard Cory Lemons had 11 points, nine assists and eight rebounds. Freshman guard Aaron Walton-Moss led the team with 14 points while junior guard A.J. Williams and sophomore forward Fran Rafferty each had double-digit points in the game.

The Cavs went into halftime with a 36-23 lead.

“I think we’re starting to click offensively and defensively, which is a good sign towards the end of the season when games begin to become close,” Brown said.

The Cavs played well in both halves and shot 57.7 percent in the second half of the game. Junior center Goran Dulac finished the game with four rebounds and along with Lemons and Walton-Moss, helped the Cavs outrebound the Pacers 34-29.

For junior guard Jeremy Knowles, a transfer student, the team’s 22-1 record is a great accomplishment.

“I’m enjoying the season right now, also enjoying my teammates and coaches,” Knowles said. Knowles had five points and three assists in 12 minutes of action.

Freshman guard Pierre Bakinde and Marywood tried to catch up to the Cavs in the first half by cutting the deficit to 12 but they could not take the lead away. Bakinde finished with 11 points and five assists while senior forward Brent Keyes had 18 points to lead all scorers.

The men’s team is scheduled to take on Philadelphia Biblical University at home on Saturday, Feb. 11, at 4 p.m. The game is also senior night.
