ELIZABETHTOWN , Pa. --- Elizabethtown improved to 2-1 overall and got its second win in a row at home Tuesday night as the Blue Jays ground out an 87-79 win. Lycoming dropped to 1-2 overall with the loss.

With 2:10 left in the game, the score was tied 72-72. Etown then went on a seven point run over the next 1:19 to go up 79-72. Lycoming pulled to within three points of Etown with 28 seconds left, but that was as close as the Warriors would get as Etown free throw shooting put the game away.

Lycoming held a 36-31 advantage in rebounding over the course of the game, but Lycoming also committed 17 turnovers against nine for Etown, and the Blue Jays took full advantage of Lycoming’s miscues by scoring 22 points off turnovers over the course of the game.
