Goucher falls to Elizabethtown

By: Megan Melusky

Goucher’s men’s basketball team suffered a 23-point loss to the newest Landmark Conference member, Elizabethtown College from Elizabethtown, PA. The Gophers battled hard, despite being down by as much as 30 points, and had impressive performances off the bench but they just couldn’t get momentum going to chip away from Elizabethtown’s lead.

Coming off the bench Tre Galloway III made a went down the court and ended it with the fast-break dunk. More efforts from other players, such as Zachary Hall, who contributed three steals and also kept the offense moving and Brian Ball, who went 3-for-3 from the field, helped soften the blow, but again, it wasn’t nearly enough to ignite a spark in Goucher’s offense.

Both teams suffered through a lot of turnovers and endured multiple traveling calls in the first half. Unfortunately for the Gophers, Elizabethtown was able to capitalize on turnovers, whereas Goucher did not produce many points off their opponent mishandles. Elizabethtown also has an easy time breaking Goucher’s press in the first half and took advantage using quick, hard passes. From this, Elizabethtown was able to produce points on layup after layup. Goucher did manage to tighten up their press in the second half and keep Elizabethtown from getting ahead more than 30 points.

Goucher also has a difficult time converting on their shots from the field. They only managed to make 19 of their 50 attempts in the game. Elizabethtown connected on 30 attempts.

Goucher falls to 2-7 in the conference, but with many more games ahead they do have opportunities to bounce back and move up the standings. Goucher stays at home for their next game when they host Susquehanna University on Wednesday at 7:30 pm.
