PGCC Routs Pennsylvania Highlands CC 128-54

PGCC Head Coach Jimmy Watkins urging the players to stay focus in a blowout win

There is a saying, "it aint over til the fat lady sings". Well, the fat lady was singing loud and clear it seems during warm-ups as PGCC (8-6) would dominate the visiting Pennsylvania Highlands Community College (2-7) 128-54.

The Owls athleticism and versatility simply overwhelmed the Black Bears. PGCC forced 34 turnovers, won the rebounding battle 45-34 and held Penn Highlands to 37.3% shooting from the field as well as 15% from 3-point range. Led by sophomore guard Lavonte Sanders early 8 points, PGCC would start the game on a 26-5 run and would never look back.

Sophomore forward Patrick Johnson-Agwu posted a game high 33 points on 14 of 18 shooting off the bench while fellow sophomore Lavonte Sanders finished with a high flying 18 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assist. Freshman point guard Donnell Graham was in full control throughout the game, finishing with 24 points (8-15 FG/ 4-8 3FG), 12 assist and three steals short of a triple double with seven. Guard Jared Warrick, another standout freshman, who has emerged as one of the best shooters in MD Juco added 18 points of his own knocking down 6 out of 10 three pointers.

Levon Gause led the Black Bears with 17 points while Tony Acrie added a double double with 15 points and 10 rebounds.

PGCC shot 59.3% from the field and 53.5% from three for the game while only commiting 10 turnovers.

PGCC will have to refocus quickly as they host CC of Allegheny County tonight at 7pm
