Brandon Baylor Drives Right
Jerrod Johnson scored 13 points and Jason Sabb and Brandon Baylor added 12 apiece but it wasn’t enough as Gannon defeated Cheyney 91-60 in Erie. The Wolves Rashaad Slappy led all players with 10 rebounds.
Gannon jumped out to a 10-1 lead but the Wolves battled back tying the game at 12 after a lay-up by Slappy and took their first lead of the night at the 9:16 mark after a steal and lay-up by Sabb. But Cheyney went into the locker room trailing 35-32.
Early in the second half with the game tied at 39, Gannon went on a 13-0 run to take control. The Knights quickly extended the lead to 20 before cruising to victory.
The Knights came out of the locker room shooting lights out. Gannon hit 22 of 31 attempts from the field compared to the Wolves 8-26. The Wolves were also out-rebounded 40-23.
Cheyney will travel to Clarion tomorrow.
