MCKEESPORT, Pa.—For all of the nail biters that the Roaring Lions have had recently, their 92-53 win over Penn State Greater Allegheny on Monday had to be refreshing.
Fayette jumped to a 26-11 lead early and continued to build upon that, leading 44-22 heading into the locker room at halftime.
The second half featured much of the same as the Roaring Lions slowly built upon their lead, outscored the home side 48-31 in the final 20 minutes to clinch the team's second consecutive playoff berth.
Fayette (10-11, 9-4) was led by Ryan Hart (Pittsburgh, Pa) and Brandon Cunningham (Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.) who both scored 16 and pulled down seven rebounds as the Roaring Lions won their third in a row.
Fayette travels to Penn State Beaver on Saturday for a 3 p.m. tip before returning home to host Penn College of Technology on Sunday with a 2 p.m. tip.
