FREDERICKSBURG, Va. - David Langan scored a career-high 33 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in 10th-ranked Wesley's 91-75 win at No. 13 Mary Washington on Saturday. In the process, Langan scored his 1,000th career point and set the school-record for rebounds. The Wolverines (20-2, 12-2 CAC) have now matched their program-record for victories in a season while the Eagles fall to 18-5 overall and 11-4 in the Capital Athletic Conference.
Needing 20 points for 1,000 and ten rebounds to break the school's rebounding record, Langan, nearly accomplished both feats in the first half. A native of Sayreville, N.J., Langan had 16 points and eight rebounds in the opening period, and finished the day 9-of-12 shooting from the floor and 15-of-18 from the charity stripe. Langan also dished out four assists on the afternoon.
The 12th player at Wesley to eclipse the century mark, Langan now has 1,013 points and 776 rebounds in his career. His 114 blocks are also third on Wesley's all-time list.
Langan also had a lot of help on the offensive end as the other four starting Wolverines scored in double figures. Quincy Pettiford added 17 points while Brandin Youngblood added 16 points with four 3-pointers. Wayne Lennon was a rebound shy of a double-double with 11 points, nine rebounds and a team-high five assists. Senior point guard Eric Selby also tallied 13 points for the Wolverines who shot 52.6% from the floor and outrebounded the Eagles, 43-30.
Aside from two tied scores early in the first half, Wesley led the entire game going on a 10-2 run to start the matchup. Selby drained a pair of threes and Langan made a pair of easy layups to cap the run. The Wolverines closed the first half much like they started, scoring the final nine points with Langan going for six and a Pettiford triple at the buzzer.
Wesley led 41-28 at the half and Mary Washington would not get any closer than eight points in the second period.
Home for two-straight games to close the regular season, the Wolverines host Penn State Harrisburg on Wednesday, February 18 in a 8 pm tipoff.
