Men's Basketball: A Tough January for the Lions

Men's Basketball: A Tough January for the Lions

It has been a rough season, and a tough January, for the men's basketball team. The Lions came into the New Year 3-11 (1-4 Maryland JUCO) and on a seven game skid. January was not much kinder as they went 2-6 for the month, all conference games.

The Lions opened the month with a home game on January 6 against Frederick Community College. Devin Mosley (Kenwood) scored 24 points in the game, but it was not enough as the Cougars topped the Lions 74-67. Already weakened by a diminished roster, the Lions played the last few minutes of the game a man down as Mosley, Tyrese McNair (Owings Mills) and Christopher Fitzgerald (New Town) had all fouled out. The leading scorer for Frederick was Marlon White, Jr. (Gwynn Park) with 18.

On January 9, CCBC Dundalk welcomed Garrett College to the Lions' Den. Garrett's one-point lead at the half grew to 12 as the Lakers bested the Lions 81-69. Back in his first game of the New Year, Richard Hibbert (Patterson) scored 19 points.  Once again, both Mosley and McNair fouled out for the Lions. The Lakers' Ariel Watson (Wilson) tied his season-high game at 33 points.

Up by one at the half, the Lion's woes continued on January 11 as the College of Southern Maryland won by three. The home loss to the Hawks saw the Lions' Harvey Paige (W.E.B. DuBois) score 16 points and Jerome Savoy (St. Charles) lead CSM at 24.

The Lions traveled to Cecil College (North East, Md.) for their first away game of the New Year. A slow first half had the Lions trailing 38-22 at the break. But even their highest scoring second-half of the month could not stop the Seahawks from coming out on top 74-65. Mosley paced the Lions with 18. Jonathon Falko (Tri-State Christian Academy) scored 26 points for Cecil.

Back home on January 20, the Lions hosted intra-campus rival CCBC Catonsville. Despite a double-double from the Catonsville's Andrew Stigger (John Marshall | Richmond, Va.) the Lions broke their 11-game losing streak, topping the Cardinals 76-62. Hibbert scored 29 points for the Lions.

The Lions were in Rockville, Md. on January 24, facing Montgomery College, where the momentum from the previous week's win was short-lived. Despite a double-double from Hibbert, the Raptors bested the Lions 68-53. Colin Turner (Poolsville) was the high-scorer for Montgomery at 19. Lamarr Mitchell (Baltimore City College) and Fitzgerald both fouled out for the Lions.

Regaining their momentum, the Lions put another one in the win column at home on January 27. Down by 12 at the half, the Lions rallied to best Chesapeake College 62-58. Hibbert again was the high-scorer for the Lions at 23 points. Thomas Agnew (William Dwyer | West Palm Beach, Fla.) scored 13 for the Skipjacks.

Finishing up on the road, the Lions also finished the month with a 51-47 loss at Baltimore City Community College. A strong second-half showing by the Lions was not enough to overcome the 13-point deficit in the first half. Nicolas Parrish (Dundalk) made his first appearance as a January Lions' high-scorer with 11. Kevin Holston (Bethesda-Chevy Chase | Washington D.C.) was the high-scorer for the Panthers with 12.

The end of January sees the Lions at 5-17 (3-10 Maryland JUCO). February brings four away games, and one home game, our "Sophomore Night" vs. Mt. Zion Academy.  That night we will recognize our graduating sophomores, Lamar Estep (Mergenthaler), Mitchell, Mosley, Paige, and Cameron Wallace (Cheltenham | Philadelphia, Pa.).
