Bowdoin stops PSC

January 11th, 2001 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Sophomore Braden Clement (Skowhegan, Maine) and junior Greg Orlicz (Liverpool, N.Y.) scored 20 points apiece Thursday
evening to lead the Bowdoin College men’s basketball team to an 85-72 non-conference victory over Plymouth State College at Foley Gymnasium.

The verdict stops Plymouth State’s modest winning streak at three games, dropping the Panthers to 7-6 overall, while Bowdoin advances to 7-3.

Clement connected on 7-of-11 field goal tries, including a pair of three-pointers, while Orlicz came off the bench to hit 7-of-8 from the field. The 20 points
marked career-highs for both players.

Plymouth State got 25 points and 10 rebounds from center Jason Blackburn (Hudson, Mass.), as the junior drained 17-of-19 from the free throw line.
Senior forward Tony Martinez (Barnstead, N.H.) added 18 points and seven rebounds, and sophomore Kenny Stewart (Londonderry, N.H.) contributed 12
points and seven boards.

Junior Chris Ranslow (Hallowell, Maine) was the only other Polar Bear to score in double figures, finishing with 12 points.

The visitors never trailed in the game, leading by as much as nine points (17-8) midway through the opening half before settling for a three-point margin
(32-29) at the intermission. Bowdoin upped its lead to 18 points (59-41) with 12:42 to play before PSC made a couple of attempts to get back into the game,
cutting the lead to eight points on four occasions, the last one (78-70) coming with 2:04 on the clock. But the Polar Bears made 15-of-19 free throws down the
stretch to preserve the victory.

PSC wraps up its three-game homestand Sunday (Jan. 14) at Foley Gymnasium with a Little East Conference tilt against UMass Dartmouth (3:00 p.m.)
