ST. FRANCES 80, OAK HILL 61 Pan­thers make easy work of Oak Hill in rout

Vir­ginia power no match for Staten, West, St. Frances

Baltimore Sun Sunday - - SPORTS - By Glenn Gra­ham

St. Frances se­nior guard Khyrie Staten came from nowhere to sneak be­hind an Oak Hill player to track down to a loose ball, then whipped it across the court to find team­mate Adrian Bald­win for an­other 3-pointer.

The hus­tle play in the third quar­ter wasn’t the first or last Satur­day, but it best ex­em­pli­fied what had been the case all game long at the East Coast Bump show­case: The Pan­thers wanted the game more than the peren­nial na­tional power from Vir­ginia.

St. Frances made Bal­ti­more proud, and did so in con­vinc­ing fash­ion, at UMBC’s Event Cen­ter, get­ting 22 points from se­nior for­ward Ja­mal West and 20 more from Staten to roll to a stun­ningly com­fort­able 80-61 win over one of the coun­try’s most pro­lific teams, cur­rently ranked No. 2
