KEYSER, W.V. — Malcolm Weathers scored 16 points leading a total of 13 players that scored for Potomac State as the nationally ranked Catamounts opened the season with a 96-81 win over Anne Arundel Wednesday evening.

Three Catamounts scored in double figures with Michael Bennett and Justin Milstead joining in with 14 and 12. Weather reached 16 on the back of six field goals, including two three-pointers, and a 2 of 3 performance at the foul line.

Potomac State, ranked 20th in the NJCAA Division II poll, led 54-30 at halftime and by as much as 82-52 during the second half. Anne Arundel went on a 17-4 run to to close the gap in the final minutes. 

Marcus Dentley accounted for more than half of his team’s offense with a game-high 41 points on 14 field goals and going 11 of 14 from the line. Larry Stevenson added 13 points for the Riverhawks.

“I thought we played really hard in the first half, but then took some plays off in the second,” said Cats head coach Justin Anderson. “It’s a work in progress this early, but we have to clean up our play going forward.”

Potomac State has its first road contest Saturday when it plays at Clark State in Springfield, Ohio.
