ST. FRANCES 80, OAK HILL 61 Panthers make easy work of Oak Hill in rout
Virginia power no match for Staten, West, St. Frances
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
