Elizabethtown (8-2) jumped out to a 54-34 halftime lead over Lycoming (5-6).

Rocky Parise (Harrisburg, PA/Bishop McDevitt) led the team with seven assists.

Also scoring in double figures for Etown included Ross Unruh (Denver, PA/Cocalico) with 14 points, Jon English (Haddonfield, NJ/Haddon Twp.) with 13 points, and Bob Porambo (Bethlehem, PA/Liberty) with 10 points.

In a close consolation game, Waynesburg (7-2) was led in scoring by Rob Strcula with 36 points and eight three-pointers. Mike King had 13 assists and 14 points for Waynesburg, and Don Frazier added 18 points and 14 rebounds.

Lincoln (4-10) was led in scoing by Jake Royal with 29 points and seven threes. Ebin Draper added 28 points and pulled down a team-high 14 rebounds for the Lions, and Shauib Abdur-Rahman added 20 points as well.
