Washington becomes men's basketball's all-time leading scorer in Senior Day loss to Rosemont

BRYN ATHYN, Pa. – In his final collegiate game, Rahiim Washington became the all-time leading scorer in Bryn Athyn men's basketball history as the Lions wrapped up the 2018-19 season with an 84-69 Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC) loss to Rosemont College Saturday afternoon in Asplundh Field House.

Washington surpassed Troy Steed (2013-17) at the 15:29 mark of the second half when he made a reverse lay-up to the 16th of his game-total 23 points and the 1,079th point of his Bryn Athyn career. He finished his four-year stint in a Lion uniform with 1,086 points.

Before the start of the contest, Washington was one of five Lions recognized in their Senior Day ceremony along with Lamarr Crenshaw, Larry Stevenson III, Saleem Chisholm, and Michael Dudley.

Stevenson ended the contest a team-high 24 points and made two 3-pointers to finish with 112 3-pointers in two seasons to rank fourth in program history for most threes in a career. Okoye Taylor also finished in double figures with 11 points, while Tariq Moore provided nine off-the-bench.

The Lions found themselves trailing 25-9 after the first 11:36 of action. Led by eight points from Taylor, Bryn Athyn slowly chipped away at the Rosemont (13-12, 8-4 CSAC) lead and would get within 34-29 on a Stevenson triple at the 2:47 mark. The Ravens closed out the half with six of the half's final 10 points to lead 40-33 at the break.

With the Rosemont advantage sitting at 42-37, the Ravens outscored the Lions 13-4 over a four-minute span to widen the gap to 55-41 with 13:49 in the tilt. The following two minutes were all Lions as Stevenson III knocked down a 3-pointer on Bryn Athyn's next possession after Rosemont went up 14 to spark an 11-2 surge that brought the Lions back within 57-52. Stevenson III, Washington, and Moore all scored three points during the run. Stevenson III would make it a one-possession game with a basket at the 9:35 mark to make the score 61-58.

The Ravens would then pull away with a 23-6 run to take a game-high 84-64 lead with 1:49 remaining.

Keith Blassingale paced Rosemont with a game-high 29 points on 13-of-25 shooting. Jalil Myers added 21 points and 13 rebounds, while Alex Epps-Oritz scored 10 points.

Bryn Athyn ends the season at 6-19 overall and 3-9 against the CSAC.
