Witt’s offense heats up in win over Gators


Scott Masin recorded his 10th double-double of the season, leading the Wittenberg men’s basketball team to an 81-64 victory at Allegheny on Saturday.

Masin matched his season high with 21 points and added 12 rebounds, eight on the offensive glass.

Sam Collins scored 17 points, and Zack Leahy had 14. Freshman Alex Fultz had a career-high 17 points off the bench on 6-of-8 shooting.

The Tigers shot 52 percent from the field and topped 80 points for the third time this season. It’s the sixth time this season they’ve shot better than 50 percent in game.

They also had their third-most productive game from behind the arc, making 10-of-23 3-pointers, and shot well at the free-throw line, too, hitting 17-of-22.

Wittenberg completed a season sweep of Allegheny for the third straight season and improved to 14-7 and 7-5 in the North Coast Athletic Conference.

The victory assures the Tigers will finish above .500. The program’s amazing streak of seasons without a losing record continues. It’s now at 57. The last losing season was 1955-56, and there have been only two .500 seasons in all the years since (13-13 in both 1967-68 and 2008-09).

Wittenberg trailed Allegheny 20-18 with 7:44 left in the first half, but it then went on a 14-0 run. Fultz hit three 3-pointers during the stretch.

Wittenberg led 37-30 at halftime and scored the first five points of the second half. The Gators (9-12, 3-9 NCAC) never got closer than nine after that.
