Centre men, women fall on road

November 28, 2004

EMORY, Va. - A week after knocking off Emory & Henry, the Wasps got revenge Saturday, beating the Colonels 69-59 in the Food Country Invitational.

Centre (3-1) will play the consolation game at 1 p.m. today against the loser of Otterbein (Ohio) and North Carolina Wesleyan.

"We lost to an inspired team. We beat them last week (72-54 on Nov. 19) and obviously, they were ready to play," Centre coach Greg Mason said. "We could just not guard them on the perimeter. Their dribble penetration really hurt us tonight.

"And they turned it over only five times. Our defensive pressure was not what we needed and we played the price."


Junior center Reggie Magnusson cost the Colonels some strength in the middle when he picked up his second foul early in the first half and had to sit. He finished with nine points and four rebounds in 22 minutes.

"That really limited our post play offensively," Mason said.

Matt Jacobson led Centre with 21 points and 10 rebounds. Korey Townsend had 18 to lead E&H.


Thomas More 79, Centre 57: At Crestview Hills, the Saints led 41-27 at the half and coasted to a win over the Colonels at the Julie Costello Memorial Classic.

Thomas More scored 20 points off Colonel turnovers to improve to 2-2 on the season.

Jayme Davis scored a game-high 24 points to lead Centre (0-3) and Sarah Sheeran had eight points and three rebounds.

Christian Stefanapoulos led Thomas More with 13 points off the bench and Brooke Warner scored 12.
