Germantown cruises as Skipjacks’ skid hits four
Five Gryphons reach double figures as game turns one-sided early
GERMANTOWN The Gryphons’ breakout season continued Saturday night as Montgomery College Germantown cruised to a 94-65 men’s basketball win over visiting Chesapeake College.
Malcolm Jay scored a game-high 21 points and pulled down 10 rebounds, while former Skipjack Jamarl Glen recorded a triple-double (12 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists) against his former team. Germantown (16-7 overall, 11-3 Maryland JuCo) raced to a 50-28 halftime lead as the Gryphons’ pressure paid huge dividends.
"They hit us with a half-court trap and we didn’t break it very successfully," said Chesapeake head coach John Mappas, whose Skipjacks (10-11, 6-7) lost their fourth straight. "They just ran us to death. It looked like a cattle stampede from the Old West."
Darshawn Johnson had 18 points and eight assists for the Gryphons, and teammates Tyrone Roach and Jacquez Lindsey each scored 14 points. Davon Heath scored 10 to lead Chesapeake, which played its reserves as much as its starters in the lopsided loss.
Germantown which earlier this season defeated Allegany College of Maryland for the first time in 24 meetings remains on the fringe of the conference title race.
Defending NJCAA Division II nation champion Cecil Community College (18-2, 12-0) took over sole possession of first place when Allegany upset Community College Baltimore County-Catonsville, 74-67, to hands the Cardinals (17-3, 11-1) their first league loss of the season. Prince George’s Community College has two league losses with Germantown currently fourth in the conference standings.
Chesapeake will try to snap its losing skid Tuesday when the Skipjacks host Harford Community College in a 7 p.m. contest. Sherrie Thomas led Chesapeake with 25 points and 13 rebounds. Anitra Cannon had 10 rebounds.
The Skipjacks host Howard Community College Monday at 7 p.m.
