Zachery White scored a team-high 13 points and Dante Campbell added 12 for the Cats, which haven’t lost since Jan. 9. Jalen Oxendine and TJ Steele both scored 10 points apiece. Kalen Watts was one point off from being a fifth Cat in double figures.

Westmoreland was led by Edwards’ 18 points. Brown provided another 10.

On Wednesday at Monroeville, Pa., Oxendine shut down CCAC-Boyce’s leading scorer over the final 10 minutes to allow his Catamounts to pull away and win the Western Pennsylvania Collegiate Conference regular season championship 97-80.

The Saints cut a 17-point halftime lead, 53-36, down to 10 points with 10 minutes to play.

Enter Oxendine.

Though he scored only two points, PSC coach Justin Anderson plugged Oxendine in to cover Shyheim Faulkner, who up to that point had scored 32 points. Oxendine kept Faulkner from adding to his total and allowed the Cats to push the lead back to 17.

White scored 18 points to lead Potomac State. Ketrick Bartley and Dante Campbell scored 17 points apiece, Krishaun Myers had 14 and Kalen Watts added 10 points.

Potomac State (17-5) will travel to play Frederick on Saturday at 4 p.m.
