Marymount 73, #25 Catholic 66 OT
Jan 17, 2004
WASHINGTON --- Carson Robinson's three-pointer with just over a minute in overtime broke a 64-64 tie to help to propel Marymount to a 73-66 win over 25-ranked Catholic in a Capital Athletic Conference matchup Saturday afternoon at the DuFour Center sending the Cardinals to their third straight loss.
Patrick Dwyer (Williamsburg, Va./Walsingham Academy) forced the overtime period with his big trey from the left corner with 11 seconds in regulation. It was three of the freshman's six points for the contest.
Senior William Morley (Olney, Md./Good Counsel) bucketed a game-high 21 points while sophomore Patrick Satalin (Syracuse, N.Y./Westhill) added 13.
The Cardinals (10-5, 2-2 CAC) used a big second half to rally from a 31-18 deficit at the half, as CUA was just 5-of-24 shooting in the first period.
Blair Mills' (Hebron, Md./Wicomico) trey capped an 8-0 run early in the second half to help CUA climb within 36-32. The senior totaled seven points, four boards, and two blocked shots.
Satalin would drain two key buckets from downtown to keep the Cardinals within striking distance. His third trey came with two minutes left to pull CUA within on at 56-55.
Two Kip McCoy free-throws put Marymount (5-10, 3-1 CAC) ahead 60-57 with 26 seconds remaining before Dwyer sent the game into overtime with his big basket.
McCoy added a game-high 13 caroms along with 11 points. Carlton Phelps (13 points), Rick Palmer (10 points), and Corey Diamond (10 points) also finished in double figures.
In the extra session, the teams traded points before Robinson put the Saints on top for good with his three-pointer.
Both teams shot 38.3% (23-of-60) for the game but Marymount held a 52-32 rebound edge.
It was the first time since the 1996-97 season that the Cardinals have lost three-straight regular season games.
