Big scoring effort gives Goucher first win of the season

Alex Nobel hit five 3-pointers in his 31 point effort to lead Goucher for their first win of the season.

Alex Nobel hit five 3-pointers in his 31 point effort to lead Goucher for their first win of the season.

An offensive explosion for the Gophers led to their first victory of the 2014-15 campaign as they beat Moravian 102-92 in their Landmark Conference opener.

Prior to Wedneday’s game Goucher never scored more than 770 points but Alex Noble scored nearly half that as he went off for 31 points while Chris Outing scored 19 points and grabbed 15 rebounds. It was the most points scored by the Goucher men’s basketball team since they beat Gallaudet 110-67 in the 2000-01 season.

“Our offense looks a whole lot better when we convert on our layups and our free throw opportunities,” Head Coach Leonard Trevino said. “We still need to learn how to close out game on the defensive end, but this was certainly a step in the right direction.”

The first half was pretty closely contested as Moravian went into the locker room with a 47-46 lead. Each team went 18-for-33 from the floor but while Goucher made one more free throw the Greyhounds made two more 3-pointers.

But Goucher would never let Moravian pull away and every time the Greyhounds appeared to be picking up steam the Gophers would hit a big shot. Finally, after Khalil Rhett hit a 3-pointer for Moravian with 12:44 remaining in the game, Goucher got the run they needed to take control. Goucher went on a 14-2 run to take a 77-70 lead at the 8:31 mark. Outing hit two free throws and a layup during the run while Noble hit an early layup and nailed back-to-back 3-pointers to cap it off.

Moravian attempted to mount a comeback but Goucher was able to use their inside game to get to the foul line. Kevin Miles scored 18 points in the game and and made seven free throws down the stretch Outing was successful on four layups in the last six minutes.

Goucher shot 55.9-percent from the floor, their best performance of the year, and made nine 3-pointers. In his huge game, Noble went 5-for-9 from distance.

Tre Galloway III scored 11 points and was a perfect 5-or-5 from the floor.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
