FREDERICKSBURG, Va. —
Justin Baker dropped 31 points and pulled down 10 rebounds to lead Mary Washington to a 91-82 victory over the Frostburg State men’s basketball team Tuesday night.
The Bobcats fall to 3-5 overall, while the Eagles improve to 4-1 overall.
A sophomore Brian Green (Baltimore, Md./Archbishop Curley) three pointer at 15:44 gave FSU a 12-6 lead. That lead would be quickly erased, howver, as Baker scored 11 points of an MW 22-7 run giving the Eagles a nine-point lead at 28-19 with 9:13 remaining.
Mary Washington would further extend the lead to 19 points, 52-33, at halftime.
MW would score the first basket of the second half taking its largest lead of the evening, 54-33, at 19:32.
With the Eagle lead at 82-62 with 4:36 left in the game, FSU rallied with a 15-2 run narrowing the Eagle lead to seven points, its lowest since midway through the first half. Green sparked the Bobcat run scoring 10 points.
The Eagles would make three foul shots to push the lead back to 10 points with 42 seconds left. FSU would make one last effort, cutting the MW lead to five points with 16 seconds left but Mike Lee would make four free throws late to seal the win.
Redshirt-sophomore Brian Owen (Gainesville, Va./Brentsville) led Frostburg State with 19 points followed by Green with 18.
Frostburg State returns to action Saturday, December 17 when it travels to Christopher Newport at 7:30 pm.
