Isaac Turner's 29 points were one shy of a career high, but the junior guard's strong performance for St. Vincent in a first-round NCAA Division III men's basketball game Saturday in Delaware, Ohio, weren't enough to carry the Bearcats to a victory over Ohio Wesleyan.

Sean Kett contributed a career-best 18 points to go with 12 rebounds for the Bearcats who dropped an 84-75 decision and saw their 12-game winning streak end.

St. Vincent, which won the Presidents' Athletic Conference tournament championship to earn an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament, closed the season with a 23-6 record.

St. Vincent, which battled Ohio Wesleyan to a 36-36 halftime tie, also battled foul trouble — second-leading scorer Chris Klimchock and leading rebounder Grant Latus each were called for their fourth personal midway through the second half.

St. Vincent trailed, 78-73, with 1:09 remaining, but Ohio Wesleyan held on, making six consecutive free throws down the stretch to finish 23 for 31 from the foul line compared to 11 for 14 for St. Vincent.

Junior forward Dillon Stith added 13 points for the Bearcats, who were making their first appearance in the NCAA tournament.


St. Vincent junior second baseman Lindsey Daniels was named softball hitter of the week in the Presidents' Athletic Conference after helping the Bearcats to a 1-1 start to the season in Clermont, Fla.

Daniels doubled for one of just two St. Vincent hits in a 3-0 loss to Division III No. 19 Moravian, then doubled twice to drive in two runs and also scored two runs in a 10-1 victory over Anna Maria.

Track and field

Jeff Elam, a Latrobe High School product, helped host Eastern Michigan accentuate its first-place finish at the recent Mid-American Conference Indoor Track and Field Championships in Ypsilanti, Mich., by helping the Eagles' 4x400-meter relay team to a first-place finish in the final event.

Elam was part of a team that posted a winning time of 3 minutes, 13.63 seconds.

His college and former high school teammate at Latrobe, Tyler Ross, finished fifth in the 800-meter run in 1:53.22, just 2 seconds behind the winner.
