BRONX, NEW YORK, February 8- Braving the early part of the winter storm to play a conference game one day earlier than originally scheduled, the Maritime basketball hit the road on Friday to take on Skyline foe Old Westbury.
It was the Panthers that came out on top, however, with an 82-62 victory that dropped the Privateers’ record to 4-16 (3-12 Skyline) on the season and improve their own conference-mark to a perfect 16-0 with an overall record of 21-3.
Senior Ron Bethea (Harlem, N.Y./Humanities Prep.) led Maritime with 16 points, while sophomore-transfer Sean Corley (Harlem, N.Y./Thurgood Marshall) recorded 13 points and a team-high eight rebounds. Freshman Tim McNamara (Somerville, N.J./Somerville) rounded out the team’s double-digit scorers with 10 points.
The Panthers got strong contributions from seniors Kerel Mitchell and Darnell Chavis, who registered 19 points, apiece, to lead all players.
The Privateers will be ending the regular season with three-straight home games next week, hosting Mount St. Mary on Thursday at 7 p.m., Purchase College on Thursday night at 6 p.m. and Yeshiva on Saturday night at 8:30 p.m.
