PG freshman guard Jared Warrick was on fire, hitting 6 of 11 from three point range to lead the Owls with 19 points
It was a battle of two of the hottest teams in MD Juco as PGCC, winners of three of their last four, hosted the third place Allegany College of Maryland who themselves were riding a five game winning streak. Obviously, something had to give and what ensued was a flat out war. PGCC led by freshman guard Jared Warrick 19 points off six made 3-pointers, used a balanced offensive attack and tenacious defense to defeat Allegany 86-78. The Owls forced Allegany into 25 turnovers and 17% shooting from 3-point range for the game and they took full advantage. Freshman center Calvin Banks finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds, while freshman guards Ochae Bynum and Augustus Stone were huge off the bench adding 12 and 13 points respectively. Allegany was led by MD Juco leading scorer Jonathan Mulmore 27 points while forward Manny Mossengo added a monster double double with 23 points, 17 rebounds and 4 assist. After a back an forth first half that resulted in a tie at 42, PGCC would execute beautifully offensively in the second half shooting 17 of 28 from the field and only commiting six turnovers, while forcing thirteen Allegany turnovers late to hold off their late rally.
PGCC improved to 10-6 (2-3) on the season while Allegany fell to 11-4 (4-2) overall.
