Freshman forward James Hagins finished with 10 points including this poster worthy dunk against Chesapeake
In a balanced offensive attack, Prince Georges Community College (11-3/ 4-1) enjoyed a 78-62 win over visiting Chesapeake College (0-12/0-7). Both teams fought off early nerves and off shooting to a 16-16 tie early in the first half. The Owls however settled down and went on their now customary run, jumping out to a 41-25 lead at the 2:49 mark thanks in large part to the 3-point shooting from freshman guard Dexter Turner, who converted three from deep in the half. Chesapeake answered, going on a 10-4 run to close the half, although PGCC led 45-35. Second half brought a back an forth battle, yet the Owl's regrouped late in the half to finish off Chesapeake 78-62.
Turner posted 13 points while freshman forwards Moetaz Ashkar and James Hagins both added 11 and 10 points respectively. Chesapeake College was led by freshman forward Renard Lane game high 19 points and freshman point guard Raymond Williams 15 points.
PGCC will next take on Montgomery College (10-4/3-2) in a big MD Juco match-up Wednesday at 7pm, while Chesapeake College next will face Frederick Community College Wednesday at 7pm as well.
