After winning the United East Conference championship in dominating fashion, Penn State Harrisburg Men’s Basketball went dancing into March Madness.

“This is a time now where we can’t change up what we’ve done,” said head coach Donald Friday, “We’ve got to stay the course of what we have done.  We got to go in there and sharpen our skills, focus and be super-efficient.”

Traveling to Worcester, Mass. the Lions faces St. Joseph (Conn.) in the first round, resulting in a 63-53 win over the Blue Jays.

Cruising with the lead all game long, Brandon Coleman led the teamwork effort with 12 points and seven rebounds with Alex Leiba scoring 10 points with six rebounds off the bench in the team’s 63-53 win.

The season came to an end for the Lions in the second round, losing to Worcester Polytechnic 72-52.

Finishing the season, Donyae Baylor-Carroll led the team averaging 17.9 points per game, totaling up to 482 points in the bucket this season.

Coleman led in three-point percentage (43.7%) as Baylor-Carroll made 85 three-point shots.

Finishing the return-to-play season on a high note, the Harrisburg Lions look to continue the tradition of dominance heading into next season.
