Etown Defeats Moravian, 77-63, to Go over .500 in Commonwealth Conference at Season's Halfway Mark

ELIZABETHTOWN, Pa. --- Elizabethtown halted a second half Moravian rally to improve to 12-5 overall and 4-3 in the Commonwealth Conference after defeating the visiting Greyhounds 77-63 Wednesday night. The game was originally scheduled for Tuesday and moved due to inclement weather. Moravian drops to 8-10 overall and 0-7 in the conference on the season with the loss.

Moravian mounted a comeback in the second half, tying the game three times, first at 53-53 at 10:06, again at 55-55 at 8:44, and finally at 57-57 at 7:17, but was never able to take over the lead. Etown went on a 20-6 run over the final 7:03 to put the game away.

Kyle Conrad (Shillington, PA/Governor Mifflin) was Etown's leading scorer with 19 points, and he hit four three-pointers.
