Goshen, SB St. Joe fall in tourney openers

MIDDLEBURY – You’re probably not going to win many basketball games when you only score 10 points in the first half.

That’s the situation that befell Goshen Friday night as the Redskins fell to Penn, 64-34 in an NIC-NLC Shootout game.

With the loss, Goshen dropped to 4-4. Penn improved to 6-0.

For Goshen coach Brian Bechtel, the early struggles made the difference, as the Redskins gave up a 29-2 run at one point.

“Penn’s going to beat us 100 times out of 100,” Bechtel said. “They’re that much better than us. It was a learning experience for our guys … We didn’t fold our tents in the second half, and we played better.”

Leading by one at just 7-6, the Kingsmen closed the quarter with a 12-0 run to take a 19-6 advantage at the first stop.

Penn outscored Goshen 20-4 in the second stanza to take a commanding 39-10 lead into the locker room.

The Redskins did come out in the third period with some energy, scoring 11 points in the first 5:17. But Goshen still trailed Penn 51-21 with eight minutes to play.

Penn coach Al Rhodes said his team’s defensive intensity was key in helping build the big early advantage. “We were able to create some turnovers and turn those into points,” Rhodes said.

Goshen turned the ball over 19 times on the night.

Nathan Miller and William Doslak led Penn with nine points each. Jordan Geist, Ryan Lutz and Taylor Brooks added eight apiece.

Deric Haynes had 13 points to lead all scorers for Goshen.

Goshen plays another NIC/NLC Shootout contest tonight against South Bend St. Joseph at Penn. Tipoff is slated for 6 p.m. The Kingsmen take on Northridge at 7:30 p.m.

Second game

Northridge 65, South Bend St. Joseph 62

In the nightcap, it was Northridge over South Bend St. Joseph to improve to 7 -0, with the Raiders led by senior standout Nate Ritchie’s 40 points.
