MORAVIAN SHOCKS ETOWN, 81-78
ELIZABETHTOWN, Pa. --- Moravian, the Commonwealth Conference's top giant killer this season, has struck again. The Greyhounds (9-14, 4-9) upset Elizabethtown 81-78 at Thompson Gymnasium Tuesday, ending the Blue Jays' 15 game home winning streak which began last February 5. With the loss, Etown falls to 18-5 overall and 9-4 in the Commonwealth Conference.
Elizabethtown pulled out to a 38-31 lead by halftime, but the Greyhounds struck back in the second half, building up a lead by as much as nine points. Elizabethtown closed the gap and came to within one point in the final minute, but could not take the lead.
Moravian shot 12-26 from behind the three point line for 46.2% accuracy from downtown for the game. The Greyhounds ad the Blue Jays, currently ranked 23rd in the nation, to their list of upset victims of the past few weeks.
Moravian has also defeated Wilkes, currently ranked 10th in the nation and at one time first in the entire country, and Albright, which has been consistently ranked in the region, within the last two weeks.
Ross Unruh (Denver, PA/Cocalico) led Elizabethtown with 18 points. Brian Loftus (Doylestown, PA/Central Bucks West) scored 15 points, and Matt Nikoloff (Grove City, PA/Grove City) and Jon English (Haddonfield, NJ/Haddon Twp.) each scored 14 points for the Blue Jays.
David Jordan led Moravian with 16 points.
Elizabethtown returns to action on the road against Juniata Saturday, February 17. Game time is 2:00 p.m.
