DOYLESTOWN, Pa. --- Adam Weber (Stroudsburg, Pa./Pocono Mountain) scored a career-high 25 points, including the gamewinning three-pointer with 33 seconds remaining, to lift Elizabethtown over Delaware Valley, 72-71, in Middle Atlantic Conference action on Tuesday. With the win, the Blue Jays improved to 2-1 on the season.
Ross Unruh (Denver, Pa./Cocalico) and A.J. Beamer (New Holland, Pa./Garden Spot) also paced the Etown attack with 11 points apiece while teammate Brian Schmoyer (Birdsboro, Pa./Daniel Boone) dished out nine assists.
Trailing 71-67 with 2:18 remaining after a 9-2 Delaware Valley run, Unruh sank a pair of free throws to cut the deficit to two with 2:10 to play.
