Andrew Gentile scored 20, including five three-pointers in six tries, as Washington College rallied for an 89-85 victory in men's basketball over defending Centennial Conference champion Ursinus College in Chestertown last night.

The Shoremen (8-11, 5-7), 5-2 at home this season, have won three straight.

The Bears (11-8, 7-5) took a 47-39 advantage into the half after shooting 58 percent in the opening half.

But the Shoremen opened the second half on a 12-3 run to pull ahead 54-50, and after two ties took the lead for good at 78-76 on Travis Moore's three-pointer with 3:31 left. The Shoremen took their biggest lead on a 10-0 run for an 83-76 edge with 2:18 remaining.

Ursinus twice closed to within three points in the final minutes, but Washington made six of eight free throws to seal the win.

Ursinus was led by Dennis Stanton, whose 21 points were his second-lowest total this season.

Frostburg 75, Grove City 70: Dan Ryley scored 10 of his game-high 20 in the second half as the host Bobcats (11-9) overcame an early 13-point deficit to win.
