THE FACTS
Johnson & Wales (5-6) 70, McDaniel (3-7) 61
What: Non-Conference men's basketball game
When:
Saturday, Dec. 29
Where: Center Valley, Pa. – Al Senavitis Memorial Tournament at DeSales first round

THE SKINNY STORY
Johnson & Wales used a 12-0 run to end the first half then an 11-0 run to break a 55-all deadlock with 5:04 to play in the second half to top McDaniel 70-61 in the opening round of the Al Senavitis Memorial Tournament.

THE LEADERS
Aaron Washington (Washington, D.C./Montrose Christian) led the Green Terror with 22 points.
• Caleb Johnson (Triangle, Va./Gar-Field) added 16 points and nine rebounds.
• Issac Ray (Fredericksburg, Pa./Northern Lebanon) chipped in 12 points on 4 of 5 shooting from long range.

FOR THE FOES
• Jason Bullock led the Wildcats with 29 points.
• Brian Hogan-Gary chipped in 16 points, eight rebounds and five assists.

THE REST OF THE STORY
• After Brian Hogan-Gary hit a putback layup on Johnson & Wales opening possession, Aaron Washington drained a 3-pointer to spark an 11-0 McDaniel run. Issac Ray chipped in a pair of triples during the 2-minute, 9-second stretch that gave the Green Terror an 11-2 lead with 16:56 showing. A Matt Madoian steal-and-dunk capped a counter-run that tied the game at 13-all with 11:50 remaining. McDaniel rebuilt a 24-18 lead with 6:53 to play in the opening half.
• Trailing 26-21 on a Caleb Johnson jumper with 5:14 on the clock, Justin Bullock drained a 3-pointer to spark a 12-0 close to the half that gave the Wildcats a 33-26 edge at the break.
• A Washington 3-pointer and Mike Wallace (Wilmington, Del./Salesianum) jumper closed the deficit to two just 70 seconds into the second half. The teams traded points over the next nearly 13 minutes with six ties and six lead changes during the span.
• After two Washington free throws tied the game for the final time with 5:04 to play, Bullock canned a triple to ignite a game-clinching 11-0 run over the next nearly four minutes. Ray snapped the run with a 3-pointer to cut the deficit to eight but that's as close as the Green Terror could get.

THE INSIDE STORY
• McDaniel got points from just five different players on the night but shot a season-best 53.3 percent as a team. Caleb Johnson was a perfect 8-for-8 from the floor.
• The 16 points and nine rebounds were both season bests for Johnson.
