Austin Bausman's 39-point outburst leads Eastern York to win; other Tuesday boys' hoops
The Eastern York boys’ basketball team and Austin Bausman seem determined to erase the memories of last season.
Bausman erupted for 39 points and 10 rebounds on Tuesday night to lead the Golden Knights to a 64-50 victory at Susquehannock in a York-Adams Division II affair.
The 6-foot, 4-inch junior made 15 field goals, including one 3-pointer, while also going 8 for 9 at the foul line. His monster effort included 13 points in the first quarter, 11 in the second quarter, eight in the third quarter and seven in the final quarter. His big first-quarter effort powered the Knights to a 21-8 lead that they never relinquished.
Eastern is now 4-1 this season and 2-0 in the division. The Knights are trying to bounce back from a 5-13 season in 2020-2021, which included a 4-8 mark in D-II.
Freshman Carter Wamsley added 10 points, 10 rebounds and five assists for Eastern on Tuesday.
Jalen Franklin had 19 points to lead Susquehannock (3-3, 0-2), while Dan Benna added 16 points.
