Box Score

FROSTBURG, MD - Junior forward Andrew Farber-Miller scored a team-high 17 points and senior guard Scott Weisenfeld scored all 16 of his points in the second half as visiting Johns Hopkins slipped past host Frostburg, 69-66, in the first round of the 2008 Provident Bank Pride of Maryland Men's Basketball Tournament. The Blue Jays, who improve to 2-1 on the year with the victory, move into Saturday's semifinals against Salisbury, which beat Goucher in another first round game tonight. Frostburg will play Goucher in the consolation semifinals.

The Blue Jays held a 13-point lead early in the first half and led by as many as 10 early in the second, but found themselves trailing 58-56 after a jumper by Juan Wansley with 4:18 remaining. Senior guards Collin Kamm and Weisenfeld then fueled a lightning-quick 7-0 run that took less than 90 seconds as Kamm hit back-to-back layups and Weisenfeld drained his third three-pointer of the second half to give the Blue Jays a 63-58 lead with just under three minutes remaining.

The Bobcats wouldn't go quietly and sliced the deficit to one at 67-66 as Brian Anderson hit a pair of free throws and dropped a pair of three-pointers in a 45-second span with less than a minute to play. Farber-Miller hit a pair of free throws with 15 seconds remaining before Anderson misfired from 22-feet out with three seconds remaining and sophomore Mike Henrici secured the rebound as time expired to seal the win for the Blue Jays.

Hopkins led 6-4 just over five minutes into the game before Farber-Miller ignited an 11-0 run. Five different players scored during the spree, which was capped by a Ryan Purcell three-pointer with 10:09 remaining in the half to give the Blue Jays a 17-4 lead.

 

 

As quickly as the Blue Jays built the lead, it was gone. Frostburg needed less than six minutes to piece together an 18-2 run to take a 22-19 lead. Steven Ogg scored six points during the run and Anderson added five with a Wansley tip-in with 3:53 remaining in the first half capping the run. Wansley was called for a technical foul after his tip-in and Farber-Miller drained both free throws on the technical to pull the Blue Jays within one at 22-21.

Farber-Miller's free throws jump-started an 11-2 half-ending run for the Blue Jays that included a pair of baskets by Adam Baumgartner and a three-pointer by Purcell at the buzzer to give the Blue Jays a 30-24 lead at the half.

The six-point halftime lead quickly swelled to 10 at 43-33 as a pair of conventional three-point plays by Farber-Miller and Weisenfeld ignited the Blue Jays in the first five minutes of the second half.

A 9-0 Frostburg run, which started with a Carter Simmons jumper and ended with a Simmons layup, drew the Bobcats to within one at 43-42 with 12:18 remaining. The Blue Jays didn't surrender the lead until a Korawn Harris three-pointer gave Frostburg its first lead of the second half (56-55) with just over five minutes remaining in regulation. A Farber-Miller free throw was answered by the Wansley jumper that gave the Bobcats the 58-56 lead that was answered by Kamm's back-to-back layups. The Blue Jays never trailed in the final four minutes, but didn't secure the win until Henrici's rebound off of Anderson's final three-point attempt.

In addition to Farber-Miller and Weisenfeld's efforts, the Blue Jays got 11 points and nine rebounds from Baumgartner and six points, six rebounds and five assists from Kamm.

Anderson led four Frostburg State players in double figures with a game-high 21 points and added seven rebounds and four assists. Simmons added 14 points and Ogg (10) and Wansley (10) also scored in double-figures for the Bobcats, who were virtually even with the Blue Jays in every statistical category except rebounding as the Blue Jays held a 38-26 advantage.
