BOX SCORE

PITTSBURGH --- Carlow University men's basketball played its third game in four days against an NCAA opponent, falling, 103-65, to visiting Lock Haven University Monday.

The Celtics (0-6) jumped out to take the first lead of the game, and kept the score close throughout the majority of the first half against the Bald Eagles (3-0).

Lock Haven eventually gained a six-point lead, but Tre' Harvey (FR/Pittsburgh, Pa.) hit a three with 6:29 left in the half to cut the lead to 23-20. After a Lock Haven bucket, Ed Cahoe (JR/Philadelphia, Pa.) sunk another trey for the Celtics to make the score, 25-23. The next trip down the court, Eugene Goodwine (FR/Pittsburgh, Pa.) snagged an offensive rebound and put it right back up to tie the score 25-all.

The Bald Eagles eventually widened the gap before the end of the half, taking a 45-30 lead into halftime.

Carlow struggled at the line in the first half, shooting better from beyond the arc. The Celtics shot just 27.3 percent from the line in the first half compared to Lock Haven's 66.7 percent.

Lock Haven ran away with the game in the second half. Carlow fared slightly better at the line, but were unevenly matched against the larger, stronger forwards in the paint.

Harvey led the Celtics' offense with 19 points. He was 2 for 2 from the line with five three-pointers.

Goodwine was 3 for 5 in the field and 3 for 4 at the line.
