Wilson's 19 points leads GC men past CCAC

Wise scores 26, Canales gets triple-double as Laker women roll

Pittsburgh, PA – Jhaiden Wilson had 19 points, 5 assists and 3 steals to spark Garrett College in Monday night's 89-51 men's basketball victory over host Community College of Allegheny County.

"I thought Jhaiden's approach to the game was very intentional and he set the tone with his energy," said GC head coach Matt McCullough.

Tyler Rodeheaver (14 points, 8 rebounds) and Terrence Ward (13 points) joined Wilson in double figures while Lamont Powell and Darius Jones each just missed double digits with 9 points and 5 rebounds.

"I feel like we've made some improvements on both ends of the floor," said McCullough, whose Lakers (11-8) notched their second straight win.

Mekhi Price (6 points), Kobe Tigney (5 points, 4 rebounds), Zeke Edwards (4 points), Lamondre Gregg (4 points), Dalton Wiles (2 points), and Darion Lee (2 points) also chipped in offensively for the Lakers, who built a 43-31 halftime lead.

CCAC's Henry York had a double-double (17 points, 10 rebounds) while Latel Williams and Patrick Filson added 10 points each.

The Lakers finish the regular season with 8 games in 14 days starting on Thursday when they play the Waynesburg University junior varsity in a 7 p.m. road game.

"We have quite a few games with not many calendar days remaining," noted McCullough. "We plan to take them one at a time and keep striving to play our best basketball heading down the stretch."

Pittsburgh, PA – Jersey Wise outscored the Wildcats all by herself Monday night, notching a game-high 26 points and 10 assists as the Lakers rolled to their 13th win.

"Allegheny only had five players, so we ended up pressuring at the beginning with tough on-the-ball defense," said GC head coach JT Lewis.

Josie Canales finished with a triple-double as she scored 17 points, hauled in a game-high 16 rebounds, and passed out 10 assists. She also came up with a game-high 7 steals.

Aliyah Tucker (21 points, 15 rebounds), Josias Mickens (20 points, 12 rebounds, 7 assists), Harmoni Swain (20 points), and Shay Barlow (16 points, 12 rebounds) all finished with double-doubles for the Lakers (13-3).

"We shared the ball the best we have all year and shot the 3 at a high percentage," said Lewis. "Once again it was a team effort – everyone pitched in. After the loss Saturday [to undefeated CCBC-Essex], it was good to see them bounce back together."

The Lakers play a 5 p.m. game at CCBC-Catonsville Thursday night.
