BRYN ATHYN, Pa. – Lamarr Crenshaw recorded a double-double for the fifth consecutive contest for the Bryn Athyn College men's basketball team in an 86-74 non-conference loss to Haverford College Thursday night in Asplundh Field House.
Crenshaw, who now has seven double-doubles—six this season, poured in a team-high 21 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in 34 minutes of action. He also dished out two assists.
The Lions erased a 10-6 deficit with five consecutive points to take their first lead of the game (11-10) on a Michnya jumper at the 11:58 mark of the opening half. After Haverford (4-6) reclaimed a two-point lead, Crenshaw converted an old-fashioned three-point play to Bryn Athyn back in front 14-13 with 10:40 to play in the half.
Then, the Lions went cold from the floor as they missed nine consecutive shots, allowing the Fords to go on a 20-7 run and pull ahead 33-20. All seven Bryn Athyn during the 6:28 span came from the free throw line. Bryn Athyn managed to close the gap to 37-28 at halftime.
With the Haverford lead sitting at 45-34, Bryn Athyn made a strong push to get back into the contest as five different Lions scored during a 9-0 run to pull within 45-43 on a Michnya layup with 13:25 still to play. After a 9-2 Ford run put the visitors up by nine, Crenshaw knocked down a 3-pointer at the 10:36 mark to cut the gap to 54-48.
The Fords would put the game out of reach by answering the Crenshaw triple with 13 of the 16 points to open up a game-high 16-point advantage (67-54).
Joe Scibelli was Haverford's top player with a 26-point, 20-rebound evening. Jesse Turkson added 13 points and seven rebounds, while Kahlil Garnes pitched in with 14 points.
Bryn Athyn will close out its three-game home stand against Rutgers-Camden on Saturday, Dec. 15 at 1 p.m.
