ELIZABETHTOWN, Pa. --- Ryan Billet tied his season high with 34 points to lead Elizabethtown to a 76-70 come-from-behind win over Moravian in MAC Commonwealth League action on Saturday. The win allowed the Blue Jays (9-6, 4-3) to stay a perfect 7-0 at Thompson Gym this season.

Jason Moran scored 20 points to lead Moravian (9-6, 2-5) while teammate Brian McKee added 15 points and a game-high 12 rebounds in the losing cause.

The Greyhounds led 50-49 with 9:08 remaining before Etown went on a 20-7 run capped by three-pointers from Billet and Adam Weber to take a 69-57 lead.

McKee pulled Moravian within four points at 71-67 with 48.9 seconds remaining, but four free throws from Billet and two from A.J. Beamer sealed the win.

The Blue Jays shot just 11-for-34 (32.4 percent) in the first half, but rebounded with a 14-for-26 performance after the intermission. Beamer and Weber were next on the Etown scoring list with ten points apiece.
