’Jacks hold off Del Tech/Stanton
Lee scores 25 as Chesapeake College improves to 6-0
WILMINGTON, Del. Chesapeake College continued its fast start Tuesday night with an 82-77 men’s basketball victory at Delaware Technical & Community College’s Stanton campus, improving to 6-0.
Andrew Lee scored 25 points and pulled down eight rebounds to lead four Skipjacks into double figures. Davon Heath (19 points, seven rebounds), Ty Newman (17 points), and Aubin Reeves (10 points, four steals) joined Lee in double figures.
"We’ve had that all year," Chesapeake head coach John Mappas said of the Skipjacks’ balanced scoring. "It’s definitely been a key to our fast start."
The Skipjacks blew out to a 14-point lead and had a 43-32 halftime cushion, but Del Tech played its way back into the game behind Alvin Walker (23 points) and Dexter Williamson (18 points, 27 rebounds).
"They beat us on the boards that’s how they got back in the game from 14 down," said Mappas. "We neglected to block out. He (Williamson) had his way with us inside."
While pleased with the win, Mappas said the Skipjacks "could have played better."
"The effort was questionable with the (Thanksgiving) break coming up, there were probably other things on their minds," Mappas said.
Mappas also isn’t all that excited about the Skipjacks’ first 6-0 start in his six-year tenure.
"It’s not where you start, it’s where you finish," said Mappas, who indicated his squad "needs to keep working to improve."
William Move had 15 points to join Walker and Williamson in double figures for Del Tech.
Chesapeake is off until next Monday’s 7 p.m. game at Anne Arundel Community College
