WYE MILLS, Md. – Mykal Johnson (Seat Pleasant, Md./Charles H. Flowers) paced five Prince George's Community College players in double figures with 30 points to power the Owls past Chesapeake College 93-87 in Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference (MD JUCO) men's basketball action on Thursday.
Johnson shot 10-for-16 from the floor, 4 of 6 from behind the arc and 6 of 7 from the free throw line to reach 30 points for the first time this season and for the third time in his career. It also marks the second-straight game a Prince George's player reached 30 points in a game after Gus Stone (Baltimore, Md./North County) posted a career-high 33 points in a thrilling 106-103 double-overtime victory against CCBC Catonsville on Dec. 6. Johnson, who has scored double figures in all 12 games this season, also registered eight rebounds, five assists and five steals.
Stone added 21 points and nine assists for the Owls (9-4, 2-2 MD JUCO) to record his eighth 20-point performance of the season and 15th of his career. Kennith Ford (Forestville, Md./National Collegiate Prep) added 14 points and Shiloh Beale (Waldorf, Md./St. Charles) scored 12 points while James Hagins (Roanoke, Va./William Fleming) tallied his second-straight double-double after finishing the game with 11 points and 10 rebounds. It was the sophomore's third double-double of the season and fifth of his career.
Prince George's took a 47-40 lead going into the locker room and despite being edged by the Skipjacks 47-46 in the second half earned its second-straight circuit victory. The Owls have won five of their last seven tilts.
Prince George's returns to action on Saturday in the squad's final home game of 2017 against CCAC Allegheny. Tipoff is 1 p.m.
