RIO GRANDE, Ohio --- Carlow University men's basketball fell,
87-68, on the road against River States Conference challenger
University of Rio Grande Saturday.
Rio Grande (7-6, 1-1 RSC) jumped out to a 14-4 lead against the
Celtics (0-11, 0-3 RSC) early in the first half. The RedStorm
maintained an average 10-point distance throughout the half,
leading 46-30 at halftime.
Carlow tried to chip away at the Rio Grande lead in the second
half but could not bridge the gap in an otherwise evenly matched
Rio Grande's bench out-scored Carlow's bench, 39-26, but scored
only six more points in the paint than the Celtics.
The RedStorm scored 25 points off Carlow turnovers, but the
Celtics shot 86 percent from the free throw line.
Sophomore Marcus Millien (Orlando, Fla.)
led the team with 16 points off the bench. Rece
Henneman (SR/Clarksville, Pa.) and freshmen and
Pittsburgh, Pa. natives Tre' Harvey and
Eugene Goodwine added 12, 11 and 10 points
respectively in the effort. Henneman was 8 for 9 at the foul line,
and Swade Redman (JR/Jeanette, Pa.) dished
out four assists.
