Centre College Cruises Past Hanover on the Road

Centre College 69
Hanover College 59

Final from Hanover, Indiana

Game recap by CC:

The Centre men's basketball team moved to 4-0 on the season with a 69-59 road win at Hanover on Monday in Hanover, Ind.

Matt Gump (Bellefontaine, Ohio) led the Colonels with 18 points while Blake Scinta (Louisville, Ky.) added 16 and Andrew Steggeman (New Albany, Ind.) chipped in 13. Kyle James led Hanover with 18 points. For Centre, it was the fourth straight win and third in a row over a Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference opponent on the young season.

It was a game in which Centre led most of the way, but Hanover never went away. The Panthers held the lead for just a short stretch in the opening moments when they followed a game-opening Gump 3-pointer with a 9-0 run.

Faced with an early deficit, Centre responded with a 16-3 run over a six minute stretch to go up 19-12, and the Colonels would lead the rest of the way. Centre went on to build the lead to as many as 11 points after a Steggeman 3-pointer and a pair of Mike Geegan (Bowling Green, Ky.) free throws made the score 30-19 at the 3:57 mark.
