Harward’s 8 blocks helps lift Lycoming men to win
Freshman Dyson Harward had a school-record eight blocked shots, including two pivotal ones down the stretch, and the Lycoming College men’s basketball used an 18-point overtime to outlast rival Susquehanna, 79-70, in overtime Sunday at Lamade Gym.
Harward finished with 12 points, nine rebounds and eight blocks, as he broke the record of seven blocks in a game set by Michael Rudy against Penn College on Nov. 15, 2013. He swatted away his record-tying shot with 2 minutes, 7 seconds left with Susquehanna (4-3 overall) holding a 59-54 lead. Junior Darius Dangerfield got the rebound and found sophomore Matt Ilodigwe in transition for a 3.
Junior D’Yante Doughty tied the game with a pair of free throws with 1:08 left before Danny Frauenheim hit a pair in response with 49 seconds left. Freshman Mo Terry tied the game out of a timeout, though, with a layup and a block by Doughty on Susquehanna’s next possession guaranteed overtime.
Lycoming (5-1 overall) took the lead in overtime off a pair of free throws from Doughty with 3:32 left before Harward blocked his eighth shot, which led to Doughty hitting a layup in transition.
Five Warriors finished in double figures, led by 19 points, four rebounds and three assists from Dangerfield and 14 points, five rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks from Doughty. Ilodigwe finished with 13 points and two assists and Terry added 10 points, six rebounds and two steals.
Dunn finished with 16 points and eight rebounds to lead the River Hawks.
