GREENSBORO, N.C. – Will Freeman scored a team-high 18 points and rookie Carson Long added a career-high 15 in his first college start in Guilford College’s 89-57 basketball victory over the University of Pittsburgh-Greensburg Tuesday.

The contest wrapped up day one of the Guilford College Holiday Classic in the Quakers’ Ragan-Brown Field House. Greensboro College rallied past Dickinson College, 92-87, in Tuesday’s opener.

Guilford (5-4) shot 55.1 percent from the floor and scored 89 points, both season highs, in it’s biggest victory since an 89-51 win over Johnson & Wales (N.C.) University in 2012. Freeman connected on nine-of-13 shots off the bench and added seven rebounds in 19 energetic minutes. Long drained seven-of-10 field goals and had six rebounds and two steals in just 16 minutes. Guilford outscored the Bobcats (6-3), 56-12, in the paint.

Blake Shields’s three-pointer opened the second-half scoring and pulled Pitt-Greensburg to within 43-36. Guilford answered with nine straight points take a 15-point lead. The Bobcats trailed by nine with 12 minutes left in regulation, but Long’s three-pointer triggered a decisive 21-3 Guilford run that put the game away.

Guilford’s Trevor Mayo chipped in 12 points, a career- and game-high seven assists. He also made three of the Quakers’ 14 steals, which contributed to Pitt-Greensburg’s 20 turnovers.
Shields scored a game-high 19 points thanks to six-of-10 three-point shooting. Teammate Jerell Figueroa made three trifectas and scored nine points.

In the night’s first game, Parris Scales scored 17 of his game-high 23 points and grabbed eight of his game-high 13 rebounds in the second half of Greensboro’s 92-87 comeback win over Dickinson (2-5). The Pride (4-4) trailed by eight points with 12:31 left to play before Christopher Corbin sparked Greensboro’s comeback. He tallied six points in the Pride’s 18-4 second-half run.

Late Greensboro free-throw struggles enabled Dickinson to trim an eight-point deficit to two with 27 seconds left. The Pride recovered and sealed the win by making five of six free throws in the final 21 seconds.

Greensboro shot 51.5 percent from the floor and put five students in double-figure scoring. Lorenzo Marry netted 14 points and Torrence Outing added 12 off the bench. Donavan Griffith and Simeon Howard both scored 10 for the Pride.

Ted Hinnenkamp scored 19 points and Michael Jurzynski added 18 off the bench for Dickinson.
The tournament concludes Wednesday (12/30) when Greensboro plays Pitt-Greensburg at 5:00 p.m. and the Quakers host Dickinson at 7:00 p.m.
