The Mercyhurst Lakers men’s basketball team won 82-58 against the Seton Hill University Griffins.

The Feb. 16 contest saw the Lakers rebound at home after losing to Slippery Rock University 74-83.

That particular loss came after an eight-game win streak for the Lakers that saw them topple seven different Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) teams (the Lakers beat Clarion University in two separate contests).

Starting off the first half against Seton Hall on Feb. 16, Mercyhurst got up by 11 points within the first six minutes of the game.

This was a different story minutes later, as the Griffins climbed out of their deficit and brought the score to 18-19, within one point of the Laker lead.

That would be the closest part of the game ,though, as the Lakers surged ahead by 11 again, and later surged to win the game by 24 points.

Derrick Ellis led the Lakers’ scoring with 24 points. Patrick Smith and Nelson Maxwell had 11 each, followed by MiyKah McIntosh (8) and Jason Massey (6).

Lakers play next Feb. 20 at 7:30 p.m.
