McNeely was 8-for-9 from the floor and 13-for-14 from the free throw line. He also pulled in six rebounds in the win over the Knights.

Earlier in the week, McNeely tallied 10 points and eight rebounds in the last-second loss at Frostburg State.

For the week, McNeely averaged 19.5 points and 7.0 rebounds per game as he shot 86.7% (13-for-15) from the floor and 86.7% (13-for-15) from the free throw line.

York College swim teams honored: The York College women's swim squad finished third out of six teams at the Capital Athletic Conference with a point total of 444.
