PSU DuBois Men's Basketball Ends Season

The Penn State DuBois Men's basketball team lost in the PSUAC semi-final matchup to top seeded Penn State Beaver by a score of 80-69 tonite.  The two teams split their games during the regular season with DuBois winning 103-91 on Dec. 1 and Beaver winning 71-66 on Feb. 2.  Beaver's hot shooting and defensive toughness were the deciding factors in the game.  DuBois had their worst shooting performance of the season while shooting 35% from the field and making only 16 out of 31 foul shots.

Once again, Marcus Genevro lead the way with 24 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists.  Josh Salter turned in another strong offensive night with 17 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 assists.  Jovan Brown rounded out the double figure scorers with 12 points and six rebounds.  Chris Dickison added 9 points and 9 rebounds in the game.

Penn State DuBois ended their season 18-9 overall and 14-5 in the PSUAC.
