G. Burnie tops Broadneck, 59-45

January 30, 1994|By Pat O'Malley | Pat O'Malley,Staff Writer

Jeff Dickerson has been battling the flu all week, but he didn't let the way he felt affect his play as he led 15th-ranked Glen Burnie (11-2) to a 59-45 upset of No. 9 Broadneck (10-2) last night.

It was the quicker and much deeper Gophers' third win in four days and second in a row over Broadneck.

The Gophers outlasted the Bruins, 68-64, in overtime last year, but didn't need the extra time last night thanks to Dickerson, point guard Williams Brown (18 points, two assists and one steal), Desmond Dailey (12 points, eight rebounds, two assists) and Marquise Farmer (five points, nine rebounds).

Dickerson, a 6-foot-2 senior, scored 10 points, had three steals and two assists and grabbed three of his game-high 12 rebounds in the final period.

"Jeff does all our dirty work," said Gophers coach Terry Bogle. "He sets screens, gets tough rebounds, steals the ball and scores when we need it. Jeff symbolizes most of the guys on this team because in my opinion we have nine starters."

Broadneck slowed down the fast-paced Gophers in the first half, trailing only 24-19 at intermission. But in the second half, the Bruins couldn't run with the Gophers.

The Bruins played seven men most of the way while Bogle used 10 players, substituting freely. Bogle even removed sophomore Dailey after he hit a three-pointer to put Glen Burnie up by 11 (48-37) with 3:09 remaining.

"We can afford to rest people because of our depth," said Bogle.

The Bruins had a poor shooting night, hitting only 18 of 57 (32 percent) from the floor, including just three of 12 in the third period when they fell eight back, 39-31. "We struggled offensively while our defense was there," said Bruins coach Ken Kazmarek. "We're the kind of team that has to shoot well and we didn't execute tonight."

Junior Jason Smith was a bright spot for the Bruins with his team-high 15 points giving him 948 career points in 2 1/2 seasons and moving him into third place on the school's all-time scoring list.

Smith passed 1984 grad Kurtis Brooks (937) for third place and is within striking distance of the school's top two scorers, Kenny Wood (1,047) and Matt Campbell (992).

Both teams had won games on Wednesday and Friday after the snow and ice break that left them idle for almost two weeks.
