Men's Basketball Blows Past Eastern Mennonite
01/03/2004

BRIDGEWATER, VA — Junior Chris Vaughn (Manchester, Md./North Carroll) scored a career-high 22 points and grabbed eight rebounds, while senior Myro Small (Berlin, Md./Stephen Decatur) added 21 points and eight boards to lead Frostburg State to an 86-65 win over Eastern Mennonite in the Bridgewater College/Don Glick Tournament Saturday afternoon at Nininger Hall.

The Bobcats (5-4) will face host Bridgewater in the championship game tomorrow at 4 pm. The Eagles (6-2) downed Juniata 73-61. Juniata (4-4) and EMU (2-6) will meet in the consolation game at 2.

FSU and Bridgewater have already met once this season with the Bobcats posting a 79-66 win in the championship of the FSU Tip-Off Tournament November 22.

Frostburg State held a slight 17-14 lead over EMU with 8:06 left in the first half but outscored the Royals 31-12 the rest of the way to take a commanding 48-26 lead at halftime.

Vaughn hit a pair of free throws and a three-pointer in a 9-0 run that gave the Bobcats a 26-14 cushion.

Sophomore Jimmy Ward (Poolesville, Md./Poolesville) then sandwiched two free throws and a jumper around a pair of free throws by Small, and back-to-back three-pointers by Vaughn and junior Jocara Knight (Laurel, Md./Laurel) pushed FSU's advantage to 39-22 with 2:47 left in the half.

Knight then hit two jumpers and a three-pointer to stretch the lead to 23 (45-22), and Vaughn closed out the first half with another three-pointer as the Bobcats took a 22-point cushion into the break.

FSU's lead grew to as many as 32 (70-38) with 13:00 remaining.

Ward set career high's with 18 points and 14 rebounds, while Knight added nine points.

The Bobcats did most of their damage from the free-throw line, hitting 31-of-43 shots from the stripe. FSU also held a 56-45 rebounding advantage.

Mike Culen led EMU with 13 points, while Jason Sager added nine points and a game-high 11 rebounds.
