Skipjacks lose fourth straight at Anne Arundel
Mappas says team needs to play better together to snap skid
ARNOLD Chesapeake College lost its fourth straight men’s basketball game Saturday night, dropping a 90-76 decision to streaking Anne Arundel Community College.
Kendrick Maybank scored a team-high 21 points to lead a balanced offensive attack as the Pioneers (6-2 overall, 4-2 Maryland JuCo) won their sixth straight game after an 0-2 start. The Pioneers held a 41-37 halftime lead, then scored 49 second-half points to break the game open.
"They’re pretty athletic, they have depth, and their pressure defense really bothered us," said Chesapeake head coach John Mappas. "We didn’t handle their pressure well at all."
Lionel Coleman (12 points), Aloysius Young (11), and Justin Brown (10) joined Maybank in double figures.
Ty Newman scored a game-high 23 points to lead Chesapeake (4-7, 1-3). Carlton Brown (19 points), Jamire Davis (12), and William Cray (10) were the Skipjacks’ other double-digit scorers. Kentrell Ricketts (5 points), Felix Weeks (three), Ricky Teagle (two), and Cory Kirby (two) also scored for Chesapeake.
The Skipjacks have already lost more games this season than they did all last season during their 27-5 region championship campaign. Mappas said the Skipjacks will have to pull themselves out of their slump with sound team play.
"Right now, we just have to play better together," said Mappas. "We’re not playing well together and we’re not helping one another out. We have to play a complete 40 minutes."

GERMANTOWN Ty Newman missed a potential game-tying 3-pointer at the buzzer in last Wednesday’s loss.
