Basketball College men Lycoming 67, Alvernia 63

Notes:

Freshman Dyson Harward, a graduate of Danville Area High School, sent a Mikeel Allen attempt into the stands, then denied Steve Pierce with 38 seconds remaining to preserve a five-point lead, as he finished with five blocks to go with 18 points and eight rebounds to lead Lycoming past Alvernia on Wednesday to clinch a spot in the MAC Commonwealth Championship tournament. Harward broke the program’s single-season record with his fifth block to preserve the Warriors’ win, surpassing Michael Rudy, who had 61 blocks in 2012-13. The Warriors wrap up their regular-season road schedule when they head to Albright on Saturday at 3 p.m. for a MAC Commonwealth game.

285. Women’s basketball Lycoming 62, Alvernia 52 at Lycoming College

Notes:

On a night when Lycoming’s seniors tied the school record for wins by a class, it was senior Megan Helminiak, who played in the fewest games during the class’ freshman year, that made the biggest difference by hitting a career-high three 3-pointers to lift the Warriors to the MAC Commonwealth win. Alvernia (8-14, 3-11 MAC) closed within three points at 53-50 with 2:30 left, but Helminiak with her career-high third 3-pointer of the night for the Warriors (15-8, 8-6). Alvernia got back within four with 1:40 left off a pair of free throws, but junior Erica Lutz hit a free throw, then senior Akilah McFadden, a Lewisburg Area High School grad, grabbed the rebound and hit an off-balance layup while getting fouled. While Alvernia missed its remaining five shots, McFadden closed the game by hitting 3-of-5 at the line. McFadden, a starter for all of the senior class’ 65 wins, finished with 21 points, 11 rebounds, six steals, four assists and a block, as the versatile guard that is in the top 10 in school history in points, steals, assists and blocks moved within eight rebounds of becoming the 15th player in school history to reach 500 rebounds. Lutz finished with 13 points and 10 rebounds for the 20th double-double of her career and Helminiak posted nine points, three rebounds and two assists. The Warriors get back on the court on Saturday when they head to Albright for a 1 p.m. MAC Commonwealth game.

285 Women’s lacrosse Bucknell 16, Binghamton at Binghamton University

Notes:

Bucknell rode a hot start at the Bearcats Sports Complex and the Bison (2-0, 0-0 PL) carried an 11-3 lead into halftime, bolstered by a 6-0 run that stretched from the 18:21 to the 5:37 marks of that frame. Eve Calabria, who finished the game with seven points (4g-3a), logged five (3g-2a) in the first half alone. The closest the Bearcats (0-1, 0-0 AEC) drew the rest of the way was four goals; after they netted the first four goals of the second half to make it an 11-7 game.
