Grove City, PA– Geneva Men’s Basketball have hit an unwanted streak of six losses after facing the Grove City Wolverines in today’s game on the road. The 74-56 final leaves Geneva still winless in conference play at 0-5 in the Presidents’ Athletic Conference (PAC), 4-10 record overall.
Geneva’s offensive game suffered a 31.8% field goal percentage and 37.5 % in shots beyond the arch during the first half of play. The lost opportunities put Geneva in a deeper hole than desired at the half, 38-24. The second half of play contained slightly higher numbers for the Golden Tornadoes with 33.3% in the field but it would not be enough to close the gap.
The Golden Tornado defense had a busy night in the paint as the Wolverines charged the basket for 36 total points and took advantage of 12-16 foul shots.
Jordan Harbison’s four three-pointers helped get his team high of 19 points. Tyler Damazo and Trevor York worked for seven total rebounds apiece.
