THE SKINNY STORY
McDaniel closed the first half on a 10-2 run to open up a 19-point halftime advantage and led by 14 or more points through the entire second half for a 90-70 win over Bryn Athyn.

THE LEADERS
Mike Wallace (Wilmington, Del./Salesianum) led the Green Terror, establishing a career high with 22 points. He also had eight assists.
• Caleb Johnson (Triangle, Va./Gar-Field) added 13 points and 16 rebounds.
DJ Harper (Bowie, Md./Riverdale Baptist) contributed 17 points and seven rebounds off the bench.
Aaron Washington (Washington, D.C./Montrose Christian) chipped in 15 points.
Isaac Ray (Fredericksburg, Pa./Northern Lebanon) rounded out the double-digit scorers with 12 points.

FOR THE FOES
• Larry Stevenson led the Lions with 32 points.
• Haybert Louche added 10 points.

THE REST OF THE STORY
• After Aaron Washington and Larry Stevenson traded 3-pointers in the game's first 2:06, Isaac Ray drained the first of his three triples for a 6-3 lead with 17:07 to play, giving the Green Terror the lead for good. A Caleb Johnson layup stretched the lead to 14-5 with 11:46 remaining in the opening half before five straight Stevenson points closed the deficit to five.
• Clinging to a 23-17 lead, Braden Caldwell (York, Pa./Dallastown Area) hit two free throws with 7:43 showing and Wallace canned a 3-pointer for the Green Terror's first double-digit lead. After six straight Bryn Athyn points made it a 37-26 game, Washington finished on the break and DJ Harper converted a three-point play in transition. Wallace added a layup on the break off a Harper rebound and outlet for a 44-26 lead with 1:27 to play. After a Haybert Louchie layup, Washington canned a 3-pointer to cap the 10-2 finish to the half.
• A Tony Tavares (Chesapeake Beach, Md./Huntingtown) layup and Ray 3-pointer stretched the advantage to 24 before a minute had elapsed in the second half. The Lions closed to 14 on three separate occasions – the final coming at 68-54 with 9:56 to play. However, three of Wallace's five 3-pointers helped stretch the lead back to 24 just 3:37 later.

THE INSIDE STORY
• The 90 points was a season best for the Green Terror and first time the team scored 90 points in a game since Nov. 19, 2016.
Caleb Johnson's 13 points and 16 rebounds was the first double-double by any McDaniel player this season. Johnson was named to the all-tournament team for his performances over the two games.
• It was the second time this season that the Green Terror had five players reach double figures.
