The York College men's basketball team ran into a buzz saw Wednesday night in the Penn State Abington Lions.
Abington hit a season-high 15 3-point field goals en route to a 90-79 win over the visiting Spartans. Both teams are now 1-5.
The Lions, who entered the game shooting just 30.2 percent from 3-point range, scorched the nets to the tune of 75 percent (15-for-20) from distance on Wednesday. Abington had made just 29 3-pointers in their prior five games.
Jeremy Skoloda led the Spartans with a career-high 19 points, including four 3-point field goals. He also had a career-high-tying four steals. York's Julian Watson added 16 points, six rebounds, two assists and a blocked shot in 37 minutes. Watson is now just three points away from becoming the 21st player in school history to reach 1,000 career points.
Red Lion High School graduate Todd Maciejewski contributed 12 points and six rebounds in his 26 minutes of action for York. Senior Chad Styer chipped in with a career-high 11 points, including three triples in the loss.
While the Lions were on fire from the field, York shot 39.4 percent from the floor and 26.5 percent (9-for-34) from 3-point range.
The Lions' win over the Spartans marked the second straight year that they have knocked off York. Former Spartan player and current Abington head coach Chris Potash picked up the win over his alma mater.
