Men's Basketball Cruises Past Washington & Jefferson
01/04/2005

FROSTBURG, MD — Junior Jason Peterson (Aberdeen, Md./Aberdeen (Harford CC)) scored a game-high 24 points and senior Dustin Long (Accident, Md./Northern Garrett) and junior Victor Arana (Aberdeen, Md./Ellison, Texas (Harford CC)) each added 12 points to lead Frostburg State to a 93-69 win over visiting Washington & Jefferson in non-conference action Tuesday night at Bobcat Arena.

The Bobcats improved to 6-3 overall with their third straight win and sixth victory in seven games. The Presidents dropped their fourth straight contest to fall to 2-9 on the year.

Washington & Jefferson held a 14-12 lead with 14:04 left in the first half before Frostburg State moved in front for good behind a 9-0 run. Peterson came off the bench to hit back-to-back jumpers and a free throw to give the Bobcats a 17-14 advantage, and FSU pushed its lead to 21-14 on baskets by Arana and Long.

Anthony Hairston snapped FSU’s run with a jumper to pull the Presidents to within 21-16, but the Bobcats proceeded to outscore W&J 18-5 over the next 6:07 to open a commanding 39-21 cushion.

Peterson scored seven points in the outburst, while senior Chris Vaughn (Manchester, Md./North Carroll) added six on back-to-back three-pointers.

Jon Koch hit four straight free throws to bring W&J to within 39-25 with 4:05 left in the half before FSU answered with baskets by junior Steve Coursey (Ellicott City, Md./Howard) and Long. The Bobcats took a 45-31 advantage into the intermission.

W&J cut its deficit to 49-39 in the opening minutes of the second half, but FSU put the game out of reach with a 15-6 run over the next five minutes.

The Bobcats continued to pull away, opening a 71-49 lead with 9:54 remaining on a three-pointer by redshirt-freshman Brian Owen (Gainesville, Va./Brentsville) and consecutive jumpers by Peterson.

FSU took its largest lead at 83-53 on a dunk by senior David Quay, Jr. (Lewiston, Pa./Indian Valley) with 4:57 to go and cruised the rest of the way.

Koch led W&J with 16 points, while Tony Lewis and Brandon Studer added 15 and 13 points, respectively.

The Bobcats shot a season-high 53.4 percent (39-of-73) from the field and held a 42-32 advantage on the boards.

FSU returns to action this weekend when it hosts Lake Erie Friday at 8 pm and La Roche Saturday at 6 pm in a pair of Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference games.
