Box Score

BALTIMORE, MD - The Johns Hopkins men's basketball team (7-6, 3-3 CC) jumped on top early and did not look back in a 65-51 win over visiting Haverford (3-8, 2-4 CC) in Centennial Conference action Saturday afternoon. Five different Blue Jays scored in double figures as JHU won its third straight and 57th overall against the Fords.

Senior guard Doug Polster (Bernardsville, NJ/Bernards) drained a jumper from 19 feet to give the Blue Jays an early 2-0 lead and kick-start an 8-0 run. After a lay-up from sophomore guard Pat O'Connell (Baltimore, MD/Loyola Blakefield) made it an 8-0 JHU lead, Haverford called a timeout to regroup. The tactic worked as the Fords rallied with six unanswered, making it an 8-6 game with 13:53 to play in the half.

O'Connell then hit the front end of two free throws and then nailed a bucket from downtown and Hopkins was up by six again. Haverford briefly cut it to a four-point game, but Hopkins once again answered, pushing out to a nine-point lead on a jumper from junior guard Scott Weisenfeld (Mt. Kisco, NY/Horace-Greeley) and a trey from Polster. The Fords responded with four straight free throws from Sam Permutt and the Blue Jays lead was just five at 21-16 with 6:51 to play. A lay-up from sophomore forward Adam Baumgartner (Reston, VA/Bishop O'Connell) ignited a 10-2 half-ending run as JHU took a 31-18 lead into the lockerroom.

Hopkins came out firing in the second half, pushing out to a 21-point lead at 49-28 with just 6:09 gone in the half. Haverford chipped away at the lead, cutting it to 11-points with 5:09 remaining, but that's as close as the Fords would get. The Hopkins' defense held Haverford to 0-of-7 from the floor in the final five minutes.

O'Connell led all scorers with 17 points, going 5-of-5 from the floor and 5-of-6 from the free throw line with five boards. Sophomore guard Andrew Farber-Miller (Charlottesville, VA/St. Anne's-Belfield) punched up 11 points, while Polster, Weisenfeld and Baumgartner all added 10. Chaz Thomas and Ben McDowell led the Fords with 11 points each.



Hopkins shot 52.1 percent from the floor to Haverford's 32.6 percent. The Blue Jays also forced 16 turnovers and outrebounded the Fords 31-29.

The Blue Jays return to action on Wednesday, January 16 when the Muhlenberg Mules visit Goldfarb Gym. The Centennial Conference match-up is set to tip at 7 pm.
