Feb 1, 2003
WASHINGTON - Junior William Morley, left, scored his 1,000th point in the first half, finishing with 20 in the game as fourth-ranked Catholic downed Gallaudet, 93-67, in a Capital Athletic Conference game Saturday afternoon at the DuFour Center.
It was Morley's third game in a row with 20 or more points, while teammate Matt Hilleary led all scorers with 22 points and 12 rebounds. It was the senior center's third double-double of the season.
Gallaudet kept close tabs on the Cardinals (17-2, 8-0 CAC) in the first half as Anton Jackson's 3-pointer pulled the Bison within 40-36 right before the half. Morley and Hilleary added two more buckets to give the Cardinals a 44-36 lead at the half. Jackson led Gallaudet (4-14, 0-8 CAC) with 17 points off the bench before fouling out of the game in the second half.
Jaimie Valencia connected on two free throws early in the stanza to get the Bison as close as 47-42 but Catholic soon went on a 23-5 run over the next six minutes to open the lead. Patrick Satalin gave Catholic its biggest lead was 91-64 with his layup with just over two minutes in the game. Satalin scored six points and added six assists.
Morley entered the game needing eight points to become the 31st player in CUA men's basketball history to surpass the 1,000-point mark. At the 10:21 mark of the first half, Morley took a feed from junior Adam Dickman in the post, spun and drove in with a layup. He finished with 1,012 career points, 30th on the all-time list. Dickman dished out nine assists and scored eight points.
Sophomore Will Jawando chipped in 12 points as the Cardinals shot a season-best 41-for-64 (64.1%) from the floor.
