The Gilman basketball team continues to struggle in the early part of the 2010-11 season as Friends School erased a 17-point second half deficit to rally for a 57-53 MIAA B Conference victory over the host Greyhounds, Monday in Roland Park.
Andrew Shraver, who finished with 14 points, sparked the Quakers (1-3, 1-2) with a flurry of third quarter three point jumpers, and Jon Schmidt was ever steady with a team-high 16 points, including several clutch hoops in the final quarter.
In the early going, Darius Jennings had his jump shot working as helped the Greyhounds build a 17-9 advantage. Senior Chad Copeland got hot inside in the second quarter and Gilman led 35-21 at the half. The lead grew to 17 in the third quarter, but the Quakers roared back, outscoring the Greyhounds 26-7 in the quarter.
Jennings finished with 14 points and five rebounds, while Copeland had nine points and six boards. CJ Jones paced Gilman (1-4, 1-2) with 16 points and six assists.
