SHIPPENSBURG — The Greyhounds boys jumped out quickly and led the Bulldogs 18-8 after the first quarter with Carter Van Scyoc leading the way.

He scored eight in the opening quarter and got some help from Alaric Hickman, who knocked down two 3-pointers.

Van Scyoc, who is nearing 1,000 points for his career, tallied 24 on the night and helped hold Bulldogs leading scorer Peyton Bechtold to two points. Bechtold entered the game needing 28 points for career number 1,000.

Shippensburg (12-3, 7-2 Colonial) tallied 25 points in the final period to run away with the contest.

“It was disappointing to watch us tonight,” Bulldogs coach Jason Creek said. “We played with energy but didn’t have the normal focus on what we needed to do.”

“Carter is so underrated in his ability to play,” Greyhounds coach Ray Staver said. “He puts up numbers every night in the scorebook and on the stat sheet, usually while guarding the top player on the other team.”

Big Spring falls to 9-7, 2-7 in the Colonial Division.
