S-TU advances with win over D&E

by Greg Talkington

SPORTS WRITER

SALEM -- When Davis & Elkins' Mike Barlow capped a 15-4 run to pull the Senators within two points (37-35) of heavily-favored Salem-Teikyo with 2:08 remaining in the first half, S-TU's fans appeared worried.

Fortunately for the Tigers, coach Mike Carey and his troops didn't fret.

Instead, they responded with a 21-0 run that lasted the remainder of the first half and 3:37 into the second half en route to a 108-64 triumph over the outmanned Senators in the first round of the West Virginia Conference Men's Basketball Tournament.

The victory advances the Tigers (24-3) to the quarterfinal round of the tournament. They will play Glenville State at 1 p.m. Thursday at the Charleston Civic Center.

Carey was never worried that his team was in trouble.

"We just got lazy on defense for a spell there," Carey said. "Then we had the wrong people taking 3s and our big guys were overpassing in the paint.

"But I knew once we started reversing the ball and attacking their defense, we'd be okay."

The defining moment of the game might have come with just 31 seconds remaining in the half and S-TU holding a 41-35 lead.

That's when the Tigers' Charles Dinkins weaved his way through three D&E players for a layup attempt. Despite getting clobbered on the attempt, Dinkins managed to run down the rebound with a D&E player virtually on his back.

He then turned back through the lane, scored on a reverse layup and was fouled. In addition, a technical foul was assessed on the D&E bench.

Dinkins then hit all three free throws to move S-TU to a double-digit (46-35) lead at halftime.

That capped a 13-point half for the senior forward.

All 11 Tigers who saw action scored, led by Dinkins' 20 points. He also had six assists. Blyden connected for 18 points and hauled down 12 rebounds, while Amilcar Butler added 17 points. Michael Blunt had eight assists.

Rolondo Hall led the Senators (3-24) with 18 points, eight assists and seven rebounds. Five-foot-eight shooting guard Andy Simpson added 17 points, which included five-of-nine shooting from 3-point range. He also had six assists.

Neal Baker connected for 14 points while 6--5 Mike Barlow, D&E's only starter over 6-2, added 10 points.

"I was happy that we didn't have to play our starters a lot of minutes," Carey said. "We're looking at three games in three days in Charleston, so I was glad to rest them, plus get some extra playing time for our guys off the bench because we may need them in Charleston too."
