Tech teams post wins

From staff reports

— In recent WVU Tech men’s and women’s basketball games:

WVU Tech 92

Maine-Fort Kent 60

The Golden Bear men romped past the University of Maine-Fort Kent at the Baisi Center Thursday in their first outing of 2013.

Tech led at halftime 45-15 and was ahead by 49 points at one stage.

Terrale Clark (eight rebounds) and Jaren Marino (seven rebounds and four assists) tallied 17 points each to lead five players in double-digits for the Bears (9-9). David Rawlinson contributed 16 points, five steals and three assists, Floyd Campbell had a 12-point, 11-rebound double-double, and Kornilous Donnell supplied 10 points, eight boards, five steals and four assists.

Others in the scoring column were: Hunter Lambert, 9; Eddie Gordon, 6; Cam Powell, 3; and Joe Saunders, 2.

Yoshives Belizaire led the visitors with 22 points.

“It’s been a season of injuries for us,” said Tech coach Bob Williams. “Against Shawnee State, we had seven players, and we’ve had nine the past two games.

“Walk-ons are still playing significant minutes.”

Among those who have been unavailable for Williams in recent weeks have been No. 2 guard Brandon Burgraff, who averages 11.0 points per game and is the team’s best outside shooting threat. Burgraff was sidelined with a knee injury on which he’s since had surgery.

“We need to get him back,” Williams said.
