Men’s basketball comeback falls short to Marymount

DOVER, Del. – The Wesley College men's basketball team fell short to the Marymount Saints, 72-70 in a hard-fought Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) contest on Wednesday.

Marymount got out to their largest lead of the game, 11 points, with just under three minutes left in regulation. Wesley began clawing back in the game, cutting the Marymount lead to two points with six seconds left in the game.

Wesley got the final possession of the game and looked to win the game or force the game to overtime. Brian Cameron got a 3-point shot off with seconds left in the game but the attempt was blocked by Marymount's Steve Etienne to end Wesley's comeback bid.

Cameron and Mychal Stefanides led Wesley with a pair of 20-plus point performances. Cameron scored a game-high 25 points on 8-of-15 shooting and hit all eight of his free-throw attempts. Cameron also registered seven points, four assists and two steals. Stefanides netted 20 points, nailing five 3-pointers and pulling down four rebounds.

Off the bench, JW Lawson tallied 12 points, eight rebounds, three steals and three assists.

Dimitri Rucker led Marymount with 23 points and seven rebounds.

The Wolverines (6-8, 2-5 CAC) returns to Wentworth Gymnasium on Saturday when they host the Frostburg St. Bobcats. The nightcap of the CAC doubleheader starts at 3 p.m.
