Cheyney Falters in the Second Half
February 1, 2012
The Wolves played a solid first half and went into the locker room down one, 35-34. But in the second half East Stroudsburg shot 70% from the field (19-27) end left Cope Hall with an 87-73 victory.
Jason Sabb led Cheyney with 20 points while Jerrod Johnson and Brandon Baylor added 18 apiece.
Cheyney jumped out to a 2013 lead but it was short lived as the Warriors scored the next seven to tie the game.
The Warriors placed five players in double figures. Matt Tobin led the way with 28 points including 6-7 from behind the arc. Early in the second half with the Warriors up two, ESU went on a 17-0 to take a commanding 57-38 lead with 13:17 remaining. The Wolves were never able to bring the deficit into single digits.
Cheyney is back in action on Saturday afternoon in Cope Hall against Bloomsburg.
