GC again hits triple digits in home win

Lakers blast AACC, 108-56, as Smith scores game-high 19

Breaking 100 points in a men’s basketball game used to be considered an uncommon achievement. This season, it’s become Garrett College’s homecourt norm.

GC broke the century mark once again Wednesday night, shooting 58 percent from the field and rolling to a 108-56 victory over Anne Arundel Community College. The Lakers – averaging 101 points per game at the CARC Arena – have scored at least 100 points in three of their five home games.

The Lakers improved to 9-3 with their fifth straight win. They also moved to 5-0 at home.

Rob Smith (four rebounds, four assists) scored a game-high 19 points as five Lakers reached double figures and all 13 players on the GC roster scored. Reserves Kamren Heathington (14 points, five rebounds, two steals), Nathaniel Washington (11 points, four assists) and Munchy Thompson (10 points) all scored in double digits as the GC bench contributed 64 points.

The Lakers dominated inside, finishing with a 55-29 advantage on the boards that included 21 offensive rebounds.

This game was decided early with the Lakers leading by as many as 25 points on the way to a 50-29 halftime advantage.

Smith had seven points as part of a 14-4 opening run, including a 3-pointer to cap the spurt. GC used an 11-0 spurt, including five points from Thompson, to open up a 29-8 lead after less than nine minutes.

AJ Crosby (10 points, seven rebounds) was the fifth Laker in double figures, with three of his teammates just missing double digits. Nazareth Lee (four rebounds) scored nine points while Nyrek Wheeler (seven rebounds, two steals) and Tyrek Simmons (seven rebounds) each added eight points.

Antonio Adams (five points) had a game-high three steals, and Korey Mitchum (three points) dealt out a game-high five assists. Cassius Bonjasky (five rebounds) and Connor Jenkins (three assists) each scored four points, and Neco Campbell (three assists, three rebounds) scored three points for the Lakers.
