KEYSER, W.V. — Reggie Baker matched a career-high by erupting for 47 points and Potomac State shot over 70 percent from 3point range during a 98-84 victory over CCAC Allegheny on Thursday.

The Catamounts shot 17 for 24 from beyond the arc and Baker sank 9 of his 13 attempts from there to go with three regular field goals and a 14 for 16 night at the foul line. Marcus Banks bombed seven threes of his own on the way to a 25-point night. Marcus James scored eight points before fouling out.

Baker added eight rebounds, three steals and three assists to his offensive output, which was a duplicate from the Cats’ season-opener when he scored 47 during a 109-104 loss to Catonsville.

Allegheny got 26 points from Scott and 20 from Epperson.

Potomac State (12-6) plays at Penn-Highlands on Saturday and at Allegheny on Monday. A win over Allegheny will give the Cats home court advantage in the Western Pennsylvania Collegiate Conference Tournament.
