Box Score

CARLISLE, PA - Sophomore Jimmy Hammer poured in a career-high 22 points on the offensive end and on the other end junior Connor McIntyre blocked a career-best six shots to lead Johns Hopkins to a 67-55 win at Dickinson Saturday afternoon in Centennial Conference action. The Blue Jays led wire-to-wire against the Red Devils and evened the season series. Hopkins is now 10-7 overall and 6-4 in the conference, while Dickinson slips to 12-5 and 7-3 in the CC.

Hopkins scored the first two buckets of the game but Dickinson quickly made up the deficit with a three-pointer from Tucker Landy. The teams went back-and-forth over the next three possessions and the Blue Jays led 8-7 at the 13:30 mark. Freshmen Gene Williams and Matt Chiusano then hit consecutive jumpers to spurt a 15-0 run that saw the Jays' lead swell to 16 with 7:31 to play. The Red Devils trimmed the deficit back to 10 less than two minutes later. But that's as close as they could get over the remainder of the half.

The Blue Jays and the Red Devils went basket for basket over the final seven minutes of the half and Hopkins took a 38-28 lead into the locker room. Hammer drained all three of his three-pointers in a two-minute spin late in the first half as the two teams each put up 15 points in the last seven minutes.

Coming out of the half, senior Mike Rhoads hit a bucket from downtown to push the lead to 13. Gerry Wixted answered with a pair of free throws on the other end and the teams traded baskets until the 13-minute mark when Hopkins went on an 8-2 burst to push out to an 18-point advantage. Rhoads book-ended the run with a pair of three-pointers. The Red Devils came right back with a 7-0 spurt of their own to make it a 57-46 game with 7:56 to play. The teams traded scoring spurts over the remainder of the game and Hopkins took home the 12-point win.



Hammer finished with a game-high 22 points, going 7-of-12 from the field and 3-of-6 from downtown and 5-of-5 from the line. It marks his second consecutive 20-point game after punching up 21 points on Wednesday night versus Franklin & Marshall. Rhoads finished with 15 points as he went 6-of-10 from the field and a perfect 3-of-3 from three-point range. McIntyre added the career-high six blocks, three in each half, which is one shy of the school record. Hopkins rode a 53.3 percent shooting performance from the field to the win. Adam Honig led three Red Devils in double figures with 18 points, while Wixted finished with 12 and Chris Cox added 10.

Hopkins returns to action on Wednesday, January 23 as the Blue Jays travel to the Eastern Shore to take on Washington College. Tip off from the Cain Athletic Center is slated for 8:00 pm.
