Sea Gulls down Wolverines in CAC clash

Sea Gulls down Wolverines in CAC clash

SALISBURY, Md. – The Salisbury University men's basketball team notched its sixth Capital Athletic Conference victory on Wednesday night, 62-45, over Wesley College at Maggs Physical Activities Center, marking the Gulls first win over the Wolverines since the 2012-13 season.

The Sea Gulls scored the first five points to begin the game, as junior Rocky Harris hit the first shot of the night, a three from the left corner, for a 3-0 lead, as junior Wyatt Smith found Harris with an inside-out cross-court pass. Smith followed on SU's next possession, driving left for a layup and the five-point advantage.

Wesley cut the lead to one, but sophomore Justin Witmer drained a left-corner three to put the Gulls back up by four, 8-4.

Junior Kyle Savercool pushed the lead to six with a layup on the right off an assist from sophomore Gordon Jeter.

Salisbury continued to hold its lead, despite the Wolverines' attempts to keep the score close. Wesley got as close as two in the first half, at 16-14, but the Gulls closed the period on an 11-5 run.

Junior Adrien Straughn scored from the free-throw line to begin the stretch, before Smith hit a three from the left wing to push the lead back up to six, 20-14.

After layups from Harris and freshman Jordan Brooks, senior Conor Strickland hit from long range to give SU a 27-19 lead, which it would carry into the break.

At the half, Smith paced the Sea Gulls with nine points, and the Gulls led the rebounding 19-17 and were able to hold Wesley to only 30.4 percent shooting.

A jumper from Jeter to start the second half increased the lead to double digits, but a three-pointer and a free throw from the Wolverines cut the advantage back down to six. However, back-to-back threes from Witmer and Harris, for a quick 6-0 run, pushed the lead back to double figures, 35-23.

Wesley scored two-straight to cut the lead to eight, but Smith put down a dunk on the right block to spark an 8-0 run for the Gulls. Witmer and Harris combined for another pair of back-to-back threes to push the lead to 43-27. During the run, the Sea Gull defense clamped down to force a 4:42 scoreless stretch for the Wolverines.

Trailing by 16, the largest deficit of the night, Wesley answered with a 9-0 run to cut the SU lead down to seven, but that is the closest that the Wolverines would get for the rest of the night, as Harris drained a right-corner three on a kick-out pass from a driving Witmer, before Witmer followed with a left-wing three to push the lead to 49-36 with 6:11 left in the game.

Salisbury continued to hold its lead and hit six free throws down the stretch to secure the victory.

Smith led the Gulls with 17 points, while Witmer and Harris chipped in with four three-pointers, each, and 14 and 16 points, respectively. Smith also led the team with 12 rebounds for his second double-double of the season, while Straughn posted a team-high four assists.

Salisbury takes to the road for its next game for a CAC matchup with Penn State University-Harrisburg; the game is set to start at 3 p.m., on Saturday, January 24.
