Iowa Energy 100, Erie BayHawks 95 (OT)

Sunday, December 27, 2009

Note: This was the first home game I was unable to attend, so I'm going with a straight reprint of the press release that was sent to me.

The Erie BayHawks (3-9) continued to struggle at home losing to the division leading Iowa Energy (10-1) 100 – 95 in overtime at the Tullio Arena.

Erie led by as many as 30 points before being outscored in the third quarter 29 – 13. The Energy were led by Cartier Martin with 25 points. Martin hit a game tying three-pointer with 1.3 seconds left in the game to knot the score at 92. Curtis Stinson chipped in 23 and Earl Barron added a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds.

The BayHawks scoring was led by Donell Taylor with 25 points and 10 rebounds to mark a double-double. John Bryant added his sixth double-double performance of the season with 18 points and 10 rebounds.

The BayHawks take on the Bakersfield Jam Tuesday night in a 7 PM tipoff at the Tullio Arena. The game will feature the first in a series of High School Hoops Showcase games, with Cathedral Prep taking on Warren High School in a 5 PM tipoff. Tickets for the game are good for admission to the double header.
