The Central Penn Knights are off to a promising start, after their challenging trip to Kentucky a couple of weeks ago. Coach David Archer is taking advantage of every chance he can to improve his team.
A blowout 106-69 victory against Penn State Worthington Scranton push the Knights to a 2-0 record in the USCAA conference.
Senior guard Daylin Davis led the Knights in scoring with 17 points on 8 of 9 shooting from the floor. Davis managed to facilitate the ball to teammates, adding a game high 7 assists in just fifteen minutes.
Three other Knights reached double figures as well—Juwan Gooding with 14 points; Noah Baylor with 13 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists; and Randy Dupont with 10 points.
The Knights shot a blistering 61.3 percent to breeze past the Lions. Central Penn had 27 assist that allowed thirteen players on the fifteen man roster to score. Penn State Wothington Scranton's Jeff Griffin had 20 points, 7 rebounds and 4 steals.
“Tonight we wanted to come out and play for forty minutes on all phases of basketball. Tonight we did that,” says Coach David Archer. “Daylin and Noah made sure we handled thid type of game with CPC class. Juwan Gooding is finding his rhythm and making the team better. I’m excited to coach this team.”
The Knights hit the road to face rival Williamson Trade on Nov. 15 at 7 p.m. Then they play Thursday in Baltimore against Division 1 University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC), which will air on ESPN 3 at 7 p.m.
