Anoka-Ramsey Falls 85-76 to Ellsworth

November 15, 2010

The Anoka-Ramsey Golden Rams Men's Basketball team dropped their first game of season 85-76 to the NJCAA Division II Ellsworth College Panthers,  Friday, Nov. 12 in the Konigsmark Klassic at North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC).   

Fueled by a strong start defensively, the Golden Rams built an early double-digit lead, but the Panthers chipped away to take a four-point lead with just under a minute left in the first half.  A buzzer-beating 3-pointer by Trey Scott cut the deficit to one 34-33 at halftime. Scott hit four 3's in the first half and led all scorers at the break with 16 points.  

A slow start to the second half doomed the Golden Rams, as Ellsworth extended their lead to as much as 14. Anoka-Ramsey fought back behind better defense to cut the deficit to 4 on several occasions but could not get any closer.    

Free throws proved to be the difference in the game as Ellsworth shot 36-49 from the line compared to Anoka-Ramsey's 7-17. The Golden Rams were also out-rebounded 41-30.  

The team was led by Trey Scott's 22 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 steals.  Jamar Franks chipped in with 16 points and five assists, while freshman Jonathan Conner knocked down four 3's to finish with 15 points. Deshawn Thurman had another strong performance with 8 points and eight rebounds.  

The Golden Rams fall to 1-1 on the season.
