Patriot Men Win it at the Charity Stripe

Three Scored Double Figures

Down most of the second half, the Patriot men battled back and outlasted the West Virginia Tech University Bears, 85-78 for their first conference road win of the year.  St. Catharine made 29 free throws, 83% at the line and the Patriot bench out scored WVU Tech 48-12 to even out a cold shooting night.

Three Patriots scored double figures with Kashiff Carr knocking down 20. Carr was a perfect 3-3 from three point range and 7-8 at the line. Xavier Keeling tossed in 19 points with 8 boards, while Ervin Williams added 18 points and led the team with 9 rebounds.  Brandon Johnson helped with 9 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists.

The Patriots (8-2, 2-1), down by double digits much of the second half, tied the game with a little over four minutes to play.  Both teams traded leads until the Patriots put the game away at the charity stripe. Nicholas Kjaerholt led the Bears (5-3, 1-1) with 17 points and 9 boards.

The Patriots are back in action at the University of Rio Grande (4-7, 0-2) tomorrow afternoon in Mid-South Conference action.
