Sophomore Jacob Walsh scored a career-high 24 points and tied his career-best with seven rebounds for the second consecutive game for the Susquehanna University Men's Basketball team but it was not enough as the River Hawks dropped an 89-70 decision to Lycoming College Tuesday night in a non-conference matchup in Williamsport.
Walsh had 13 points in the first half including five of the last seven points of the period as Susquehanna (1-3) cut a double-digit lead down to seven points at 43-36 at the intermission.
Lycoming (4-0) answered with an 11-0 run over the next three minutes as the Warriors regained a double-digit lead. After the teams traded baskets, Lycoming went on another 15-5 run and extended the lead to 20 points at 80-60 and cruised to the win.
Butler came off the bench to score 13 points while Callahan and Ryan Traub each scored 10 points for Susquehanna.
The Lycoming pressure defense did not allow the River Hawks to get into an offensive rhythm and caused 30 turnovers as the Warriors recorded 35 points off turnover and received a 40-point effort from the bench.
Susquehanna returns to action after the Thanksgiving holiday with a Wednesday night game at Misericordia before returning home December 2 to open Landmark Conference play with a game against Goucher.
