WILBERFORCE — The Central State Marauders men’s college basketball team lost its Nov. 10 season-opener, 74-50, to Christian Brothers University.
The Marauders converted 30 percent of their shots from the field compared to CBU’s 60-percent shooting performance.
Christian Brothers’ Joe Laravie led all scorers with 19 points. Brad Miller finished with 16 points followed by Luke Rudy’s 15 point performance. The trio combined for 14 three-point field goals.
CSU (0-2) was paced by Davone Daniels’ 13 points, five rebounds and five steals. Tom Johnson recorded 11 points and four rebounds.
“Anytime you shoot 30 percent from the field, it is going to be tough to win any game. I expect our starters to improve from tonight’s performance and lead us in the next game. CBU is one of the top teams in our region and they played up to their reputation tonight,” Marauders Head Coach Joseph Price said.
“Tonight was a result that showed our guys that they have a lot of things to work on. We will learn from tonight’s result and be a better team for it. We were able to chop their lead down to two points midway through the second half, but we took some questionable shots and CBU was able to retake control of the game.”
Central State next plays at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 15 at Malone University in Canton.
