SAN ANTONIO, Texas – The Centenary men’s basketball team dropped an 82-61 decision on Friday evening at Trinity to fall to 6-7 overall and 1-2 in Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference play.  The Tigers improved to 8-7 overall and 3-1 in conference action.

Jonathan Blount paced the Gents with 25 points while Brooks Pawsat added 12 points. Kendall Demouchet grabbed a team-best six rebounds for the Maroon and White.

Robert Kitzinger and Jimmy Clark led the Tigers with 13 points each. Zach Lambert supplied 10 points. Kitzinger pulled down a team-leading seven boards for the Black and Orange.

Centenary faced a stout Tiger defense that held the Gents to 39 percent shooting on the night despite shooting 39 percent from behind the arc. The Maroon and White shot a season-low 46 percent from the free throw line.

Despite playing nearly point-for-point in the second stanza, 40-39, the Gents couldn’t overcome a 20-deficit in the first 20 minutes play. The largest lead of the game came at the 12:22 mark of the contest as Craig Saltarelli capped an old-fashion, three-point play with a free throw to extend the advantage to 63-34.

Trinity held a plus-20-point advantage in bench points and converted 17 Gents’ miscues into 23 points. The Maroon and White scored 18 points off 16 Trinity turnovers.

Trinity shot 48 percent from the field and converted 18 of 24 attempts from the charity stripe.

Centenary returns to action on Saturday, Jan. 18 as the Gents travel to Southwestern. Tip is slated for 4 p.m.
