Offense-minded 'Jacks rip Anne Arundel; set to host Baltimore City Wednesday night

Tuesday, November 27, 2007

ARNOLD – The road show continued to rave reviews Monday night at Anne Arundel Community College.

Unbeaten Chesapeake College – playing its sixth road contest in seven men´s basketball games this season – handed the host Pioneers an 82-66 loss as Davon Heath scored a game-high 26 points. Local fans will get their second chance of the season to see the Skipjacks Wednesday night at 7 p.m. when they host Baltimore City Community College in a Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference clash.

The Skipjacks, who entered Monday´s game averaging nearly 88 points per contest, did little to hurt their offensive reputation against winless AACC (0-3). Chesapeake blew out to a 38-25 halftime lead to take control of a contest in which five Skipjacks reached double figures.

"Davon played well offensively for us and we again had good balance to our scoring," said Chesapeake head coach John Mappas.

Andrew Lee (seven rebounds), Preston Faulk, and Ty Newman each scored 13 for the Skipjacks, while teammate Aubin Reeves (six assists) added 12 points. John Dawson chipped in five points and six rebounds.

Chris Schrader scored a team-high 20 points for the Pioneers and teammate Aloysius Young contributed 12 points.

Mappas said he expects a tough game from BCCC, a program that has normally given the Skipjacks fits over the years.

"They draw from Baltimore City, which is a basketball hotbed, so they´ve got good talent pretty much every year," said Mappas. "Even in years when we have beaten them, we´ve found ourselves with a real fight on our hands."

Note: Monday night´s game counted on both teams´ regular-season records, but did not count in the conference standings. The teams will play again later this season at Chesapeake in the league
