HCC survives late Lakers rally
By BOB PARASILITI
It was a rate of basket exchanged that made Hagerstown Community College rich and Garrett Community College go broke.
Every time the Hawks needed a key basket, it rained 3s. For Garrett, it was the conventional duece. You don't have to be a math major to figure the rest.
HCC made good on the first goal of the weekend, counterpunching with key 3-point baskets and jabbing with strong post defense to nail a crucial 93-79 victory over Garrett Saturday in the semifinals of the Region XX Tournament at the HCC athletic complex.
"There are some nights when the 3 falls and some nights when it doesn't," HCC coach Jim Brown said. "When we hit them, we are pretty tough."
