Elizabethtown Outlasts Juniata, Wins 90-72, Kyle Conrad Nears 1,000 Point Mark
ELIZABETHTOWN, Pa. --- Elizabethtown posted a 90-72 Commonwealth Conference victory at home over Juniata College Tuesday night to improve to 8-6 overall and 2-1 in the conference. The 18 point margin of victory was somewhat misleading, as the Blue Jays pulled away from Juniata (5-8, 0-3) in the final minutes of the game. The visiting Eagles led for much of the first half and carried a 41-38 lead into halftime.
Kyle Conrad (Shillington, PA/Governor Mifflin) led all players in scoring with 23 points for Etown on an 8-for-14 performance from the field, 4-for-5 shooting from three-point range, and 3-for-4 shooting from the free throw line. Conrad is now 34 points away from becoming 29th player in Elizabethtown College men's basketball history to reach the 1,000 career point plateau.
Greg Adams (Lebanon, PA/Lebanon) added 15 points for Etown on 4-for-5 shooting from the field and 7-for-9 shooting from the free throw line, and he led Etown in assists with five and pulled down six rebounds. Andrew Flynn (Chalfont, PA/Central Bucks West) scored 14 points, shot 6-for-9 from the field and 2-for-2 from the free throw line, and he led Etown in rebounds with nine. Jon Connor (Hershey, PA/Hershey) added 11 points, four assists and three steals for Etown, and Brian Schreiber (Mechanicsburg, PA/East Pennsboro) came off the bench to score 12 points in 11 minutes played for Etown. Schreiber made every shot he took, going 3-for-3 from the field and 6-for-6 from the charity stripe.
Tommy McConnell (Hollidaysburg, PA/Bishop Guilfoyle) was Juniata's leading scorer with 14 points, going 6-for-11 from the field and tossing out a team high of four assists. Aaron Chamberlain (Wood, PA/Tussey Mountain) added 11 points for the Eagles.
Elizabethtown will return to action on the road Saturday, January 15 against 2004 Commonwealth Conference runner-up Widener University in a 3:00 p.m. game.
