GETTYSBURG, Pa. - Kevin Kennedy finished with 19 points to lead Gettysburg to a 62-37 victory over McDaniel in Centennial Conference (CC) men's basketball action on Wednesday.

Woody Butler (Smithsburg, Md./Middletown) led the Green Terror (7-8, 3-5 CC) with seven points.

Andrew Powers added 14 points for the Bullets (9-6, 7-2 CC), who held an opponent to fewer to 40 points for the first time since Jan. 21, 1981.

After a back-and-forth first eight minutes, Gettysburg put together a 10-2 run to turn a 7-all deadlock into a 17-9 lead with 6:51 showing on the first-half clock.

The Bullets extended the lead to as many as 13 on an Alex Zurn basket-and-foul play with 1:53 to play.

Miguel Jones (Baltimore, Md./North County) hit a layup 14 seconds later to set the halftime margin at 31-20.

Gettysburg steadily built its advantage over the second half, leading by as many as 25 at 56-31 with 4:12 to play.

A single Woody Butler (Smithsburg, Md./Middletown) free throw snapped an 8-minute, 29-second drought.

A Karl Nelson (Owings Mills, Md./Park School of Baltimore) 3-pointer with 13 seconds left gave the Green Terror 37 points - its fewest since a 65-37 loss at Johns Hopkins on Feb. 19, 2003.

The Green Terror returns to action at home against Washington (Md.) on Saturday. Game time is 3 p.m.
