Greyhounds Basketball Preview

Monday, November 14th, 2016 by Brendan Pierce

Sports Saturday

Another season of Greyhounds basketball is officially underway as both the men and women’s teams began their season this weekend. The men’s team suffered a hard fought loss to A-10 opponent Duquesne by a score of 65-60 on Friday. However, the women notched their first win of the season in blowout fashion over Lipscomb 74-30.

The men’s team was lead by senior big man, Jarred Jones and junior point guard Andre Walker. The Greyhound tandem each dropped 21 points, but it was not enough to prevail over a tough Dukes team. Junior Chancellor Barnard put up a strong effort on the defensive end as he had a team high 5 blocks. The Greyhounds got limited help off the bench as they only had a combined 3 bench points compared to Duquesne’s 23. The Greyhounds also had a difficult time from the free throw line as they shot 47% from the charity stripe. The men will look to bounce back in their home opener tonight at 7:30 against the Millersville Marauders. (more…)
