High-powered Harcum scores 129 against ’Jacks
Chesapeake College’s Nicholson tallies game-high 30 points

BRYN MAWR, Pa. – Scoring hasn’t been a problem for the Skipjacks.

Stopping the opposition from scoring, however, has been a different story.

Harcum College became Chesapeake College’s third straight men’s basketball opponent to hit triple digits Thursday night. The Bears (2-1) came up just one point shy of their school record and shot 58 percent from the field in a 129-83 victory.

David Bruce (20 points, 10 rebounds) and Kevin Edmonds (18 points, 10 rebounds) each had a double-double for the Bears while teammate Deon Stewart scored a career-high 17 points. Trian Benjamin (12 points, six rebounds, five assists, four steals) added 12 points, Dondre Whitmore chipped in 11, and Stuart Clarke, Percy Woods, and Keith Mitchell each added 10 points for Harcum.

Chesapeake’s D.J. Nicholson scored a game-high 30 points, hitting 9-of-19 from the field – including 7-of-11 from 3-point range. Nicholson is averaging 32.3 points per game, including nearly 38 points per game over the last three contests.

Patric Bridges-Jenkins had a double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds, while Jimmie Jenkins (eight rebounds) and Ryan Waters contributed nine points each for the Skipjacks.

Harcum, ranked 27th in the latest NJCAA Division I national poll, went 26-3 last season.

The Skipjacks host Community College Baltimore County-Catonsville Wednesday night at 7 p.m.
