Princeton tops Herlong, falls to Loyalton

Princeton’s Corwyn Roberson, shown in a photo from last month, had a double-double in the Eagles’ loss to Loyalton on Jan. 18.

In Pioneer League games last week, the Princeton Eagles’ basketball team outscored Herlong 76-45 at home on Jan. 18, but cooled off two nights later after making the trek to snowy Loyalton where they fell 57-79 to the Grizzlies.

Against visiting Herlong, the Eagles’ leading scorer, Junior Andrade, poured in 33 points and dished out seven assists to lead the way.

However, Andrade, who has averaged 24.2 points per game, which is tops in the Northern Section this season, got plenty of help from teammates Corwyn Roberson and Alex Medina.
Roberson posted a stat line that included 16 points and eight boards, while Medina pitched in with 11 points and seven rebounds.

Things didn’t come as easily on the road in Loyalton though, as despite an 18-point, seven rebound effort by Medina and a double-double from Robeson, who contributed 10 points and 11 rebounds, Princeton could not unseat the first place Grizzlies.

Saddled with foul trouble, Andrade never established a rhythm on the offensive end, but still managed to finish with 17 points and six rebounds.

Princeton (7-3, 2-0) hosted Biggs in a non-conference game on Monday then resumed league play traveling to Greenville on Tuesday. The Eagles will be in Herlong tonight. ■
