Vargo scores 35 as Lakers stay hot

Garrett College men top Beaver County for fifth win in last six games


Alex Vargo's 35 points led four Lakers into double figures Wednesday night as Garrett College's men's basketball team defeated visiting Community College of Beaver County, 87-69.

GC (10-8) raced to a 52-27 halftime lead and then cruised to its fifth win in the last six games. K'Shawn Scott (19 points, game-high 13 rebounds) posted a double-double while Gavin Jackson scored 13 points and Nate Washington (six rebounds, game-high eight assists) added 11.

Vargo (seven rebounds, three assists, two steals) made 14-of-21 shots, including 5-of-9 from beyond the arc. He's now scored at least 30 points five times this season.

The Lakers host Anne Arundel Community College (6-11 overall, 2-6 league) Saturday at 3 p.m. in a Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference contest. Garrett is currently 1-4 in conference action.
