Pitt-Greensburg Tops Penn Tech In Doc Greene Opener

(Posted November 18, 2005)

Huntingdon, Pa.-- Pitt-Greensburg overcame an early first-half defict to post a 81-69 victory over the Pennsylvania College of Technology in the opening game of the 2005 Mutual Benefit Group "Doc" Greene Tournament. Pitt-Greensburg will move on to play in Saturday's championship game at 8 pm.

Penn College came out of the gates quickly, scoring the first nine points of the game, and then again taking a nine-point point lead after a basket from Adam Walker with 16:38 remaining in the first half.

Greensburg would chip away at the lead, but would not take its first advantage until a David Winfrey three with just under 12 minutes remaining gave the Bobcats a 23-21 lead. The rest of the half was all Pitt-Greensburg as they outscored the visitors 31-14 over the rest of the half to take a 54-35 lead into the locker room.

Pitt-Greensburg controlled the action in the second half, never letting the Penn College pull within 15 until the final two minutes of the game.

Pitt-Greensburg had four players in double figures with Matt Rowland and Duke Cooper each scoring 18. Bill Scavincky added 15 points and six rebounds.

Pennsylvania College of Technology was paced by Tony Flint who finished with 15 points. Matt Michaels chipped in 13, while Preston Peterson led the way with four rebounds.

Pitt-Greensburg will play the winner of tonight's nightcap between host Juniata College and Lancaster Bible College.
