Men’s Hoops Falls at Frostburg State
Frostburg, Md. – Marymount University’s men’s basketball team dropped a tough 76-67 Capital Athletic Conference game to league newcomer Frostburg State on Wednesday night. The Saints cut a double-digit second half deficit to two possessions late in the game but couldn’t complete the comeback.
Four Saints (1-5, 0-2 CAC) scored in double-figures, led by senior Stephen Simoneau and freshman Reed Scott with 16 points each. Sophomore Aaron Walsh added 13 points while senior Bryan DeBruin chipped in 12.
Scott led Marymount with eight rebounds, Simoneau had five assists and DeBruin led the way with three steals.
The Saints outscored FSU 41-34 in the second half but it wasn’t enough to overcome a 16 point halftime deficit. Simoneau nailed a shot with 85 ticks on the clock with an assist from Walsh to pull within five but MU couldn’t pull any closer as Frostburg State sealed the game at the charity stripe.
Marymount outshot the Bobcats 50 percent to 44 percent but turned the ball over six more times and made less field goals and three-pointers than their hosts.
Brian Anderson and Mhabhushah Koffa led the Bobcats with 12 points apiece while Maurice chipped in 10. Koffa added nine rebounds and six steals in the win.
Marymount returns to action on Saturday with a home CAC tilt against York (Pa.) at 4 p.m.
