What: Non-Conference men's basketball game
When:
Sunday, Nov. 25
Where: Cresson, Pa.

THE SKINNY STORY
Mt. Aloysius jumped out to a 16-2 lead early in the game before McDaniel rallied to take a second-half lead. The Mounties, however, went 8-for-8 from the free-throw line in the final 1:25 to seal a 56-50 victory.

THE LEADERS
Aaron Washington (Washington, D.C./Montrose Christian) recorded his second 20-point outing of the season with 21 points.
Austin Cannon (Hampstead, Md./Manchester Valley) led the way on the glass with six rebounds.
Isaac Ray (Fredericksburg, Pa./Northern Lebanon) added five points and three assists.

FOR THE FOES
• Carlos Palacios led the Mounties with 14 points.
• Tommy Pisula added 10 points and seven rebounds.
• Nate Christian had nine points and eight rebounds.

THE REST OF THE STORY
• Behind six points from Tommy Pisula, Mt. Aloysius built a 16-2 lead in the game's first 7:48. A Mike Wallace (Wilmington, Del./Salesianum) canned a 3-pointer with 11:43 on the clock to spark a 14-4 counter that closed the deficit to 20-16 with 4:28 on the clock. Aaron Washington drained back-to-back 3-pointers to cap the run.
• Six straight points from the Mounties stretched the lead back to 10 before Washington hit a jumper with 1:33 showing to trim the halftime deficit to 26-18.
• Triples from Austin Cannon, Aaron Washington and Stephen Lang (Gaithersburg, Md./Poolesville) keyed a 16-6 run to start the second half, giving the Green Terror its first lead with 13:03 showing. Trailing 40-29 on a Washington trey, Julian Stover hit a layup with 10:21 to play and Carlos Palacios pulled up for a triple on the break to reestablish a four-point edge for the hosts at the midway point of the half.
• Two Washington free throws evened the game at 44-all with 5:51 to play but Pisula hit two free throws of his own nearly two minutes later to regain a two-point edge. After a Josiah Jones layup, Lang hit his second triple of the game to close the deficit to 48-47 with 3:21 to play. Mt. Aloysius did not hit another field goal the rest of the way but did go 8-for-8 from the charity stripe to escape with the win.

THE INSIDE STORY
• McDaniel falls to 0-2 on the road after starting the season with two straight home wins.
• After Washington's 21 points, the other eight Green Terror players to see action combined for 29 points.
