Dickinson scored 13 of the game's final 17 points after McDaniel had rallied to take the lead, trailing by as many as 15 late in the first half, to secure a 61-54 victory.

Aaron Washington (Washington, D.C./Montrose Christian) scored a season-high 12 points for the Green Terror.
Josh Sproul (Princess Anne, Md./Washington Academy) led the way with 15 points and six rebounds.

• Jack Tierney led the Red Devils with 14 points and 10 rebounds to go with three assists.
• Ryan Robinson added 17 points.
• Adam Drummond chipped in 15 points and four assists.

• After Ryan Robinson and Kaelen Kanealey (Rochester, N.Y./Irondequoit) traded 3-pointers in the opening 1:29, four Adam Drummond free throws around a Caleb Johnson (Triangle, Va./Gar-Field) triple gave the hosts a 7-6 edge. The second two free throws started a 15-4 run that allowed Dickinson to build an 20-10 lead with 7:22 to play in the opening half. Drummond had six of 10 first-half points during the stretch. The lead swelled as large as 15 on a Robinson trey to make it 29-14 with 1:54 showing. An Aaron Washington 3-pointer with 31 ticks left closed the halftime margin to 31-20.
• Six points from Josh Sproul in the first 3:30 of the second half keyed an 8-2 burst that quickly sliced the deficit to five. Just over five minutes into the half, Washington drained a 3-pointer to make it a two-point game. Triples from Washington and Stephen Lang (Gaithersburg, Md./Poolesville) around two Kanealey free throws turned a 37-34 deficit with 10:42 to play into a six-point lead just 1:40 later.
• Dickinson, however, used four made free throws and a Robinson fast-break layup to tie the game once again with 7:08 remaining. A Robinson three-point play off a steal put the Red Devils back in front, stretching the run to 9-0 after the eight straight from the Green Terror. Tied at 48-all, Sam Beverly (Baltimore, Md./Baltimore City College) hit a layup to put McDaniel back in front. Jack Tierney, however, hit a 3-pointer from the right wing to put Dickinson ahead. A Drummond three-point play stretched the advantage to four with 2:38 to play. McDaniel drew to within two twice in the final 2:22 but could get no closer.

• McDaniel held an opponent to 61 or fewer points for the fifth time in six games this season.

McDaniel returns to action at Ursinus on Saturday. Game time is 1 p.m.
