Men's Basketball Gets Road Win

Titusville, PA- The Mercyhurst North East men's basketball team had six players in double figures as the Saints conquered the Panthers of Pitt-Titusville 120-95 on Monday evening.

The sophomore trio of Gerrell Williams, Ike Jones, and Johnell Free combined for 45 points and 26 rebounds as they helped lead the Saints to victory.  

From the opening tip it was off to the races. Both teams exchanged early leads as the Saints held a 52-44 advantage at the break.

To begin the second half the Saints used a 24-5 run to help put the game out of reach. Seven straight points from Gerrell Williams helped spark this run where the Saints forced Pitt Titusville into taking bad shots and turning the ball over.

Also reaching double figures for the Saints were Omar Little Jr. (13), Leron Epps (12), and Xavier Sewell (11).

Head Coach David Gahan was very pleased with the contribution from the entire team. "We have stressed making the extra pass year. It was nice to see the ball move to the open guy tonight. It led to quality shots and six guys reaching double figures".

Next up, the Saints host Notre Dame College JV for a 7 PM tip on Tuesday, December 8, at Ligouri Fieldhouse.
