Pioneer Perfection: Men’s Basketball Undefeated

The Pioneers needed to keep things clean against a winless Wilmington, and they did.

With an 89 to 78 victory over the Wilmington College Quakers, the Men’s Basketball team moves to 5-0 in the Ohio Athletic Conference, and a 10-0 record overall.  This comes as the Pioneers gather more Top 25 votes in the D3hoops.com Poll.

Freshman Tyler Hammond is really stealing the show, as the Freshman from Cleveland, OH scored 22 points.  That’s his second game in a row with 20 or more points.  Junior Trevor Halter added 10 more points, and in a surprise, eight rebounds.  That’s more than junior Kevin Knab, who usually leads the team in rebounds.  He ended the night with 12 points and seven rebounds.

The Men’s and Women’s Basketball teams head out for a West Coast swing after the Christmas holiday, then return to face the University of Mount Union and Heidelberg University in the new year.

Check out the full Ohio Athletic Conference standings below.  Should be an interesting week when Marietta takes on both Capital University and John Carroll University in the same week.

Men's Basketball Game TONIGHT vs Otterbein at 7:30 PM

Men’s Basketball has its first game of the Spring semester tonight at 7:30 PM against the Otterbein Cardinals.

The Pioneers (2-5 OAC, 5-8 overall) will take on the Cardinals (2-5 OAC, 4-10 overall) in a battle for the basement.  The top eight teams in the OAC advance to the conference tournament at the end of February.  The Pioneers currently sit in eighth, while Otterbein sits ninth and Muskingum tenth.

Marietta is led by Trevor Halter, who comes into the game scoring over 20 points in his past two games.  He was named OAC Men’s Basketball player of the week after 29 points and 10 rebounds in a win over Muskingum (0-7 OAC, 5-9 overall).  He followed that up with 21 points in a loss to Ohio Northern (5-2 OAC, 7-7 overall).

Otterbein comes into this game off of a victory over Mount Union (3-4 OAC, 5-9 overall), their second conference win of the year.  Senior Brian Pollock had 29 points in their last game, against Mount Union.  The Cardinals did not let the Purple Raiders score a single point from the field for 13 straight minutes, including the first six minutes of the second half.

Come check out your Pioneers tonight at Ban Johnson Arena.  Tip is at 7:30 PM.  Can’t get to Fenton Court?  88.3 WMRT-FM will be broadcasting the game over the air and streaming online at the Marietta Athletics page.
