WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – Senior Chris Wallace (Randallstown, Md./Calvert Hall) hit the first of both free throws five minutes into the game to give him his 1,000th career point and the forward scored a game-high 16 points to lead the ninth-ranked Lycoming College men’s basketball team to an 82-69 win over Marywood University on Sunday afternoon, Dec. 17, at Lamade Gym.

Wallace, adding three steals, three blocks and three rebounds, hit 5-of-6 shots and all six of his free throws, as he became the 31st Warrior in program history to score 1,000 career points. He finished the afternoon with 1,013 career points.

Early in the second half, Lycoming increased its lead to double-digits for the second time and the game stayed that way as the lead ballooned to 20 when the Warriors went on a 10-2 run late to put the game out of reach.

Lycoming shot 52 percent from the field in the second half and 43 percent in the game. Marywood was held to 33 percent shooting, as it was held to its lowest scoring output this season. The Warriors hit 31-of-41 (76 percent) of their free throws while also turning 16 Marywood turnovers into 22 points.
