Back to News List | Posted on Dec 21st, 2018

The Aces outlasted host McDowell 76-68 in OT to win the Marsha Marsh Roundball Classic in Erie, PA. Jack Forrest led the way with 26 points and 11 rebounds and Steve Payne '19 added 16 points and 7 assists and scored his 1,000th point on a three-pointer early in the first quarter. Matt O'Connor '19 and Darryl Taylor '19 also reached double figures, chipping in 12 points apiece. 

LM led 21-12 after the first quarter, but the home team stormed back and tied the game by the end of the third quarter. The teams remained tied at the end of regulation, after a last second three-pointer by the Aces fell short. LM, however, dominated overtime. Threes by Forrest and O'Connor broke the game open and the Aces cruised in the extra period. 

On consecutive nights, the Aces knocked off two of Western PA's top squads, making the long (7.5 hour) ride back home a lot smoother.
