After earning a #1 seed, the Macks (24-1, 13-1 Western Cloverbelt Conference) looked the part against the youthful Pirates (0-23, 0-14 Eastern Cloverbelt Conference), overwhelming Gilman with relentless defensive pressure and allowing just 9 points by halftime.
The intensity continued into the second half, regardless of who saw the floor, as McDonell got every single player in on the action and placed ten in the scoring column. Gilman fought hard throughout but simply could not keep up, as the Macks cruised to a running clock victory and moved on to the Regional Semi-Final.
WOGO "RadioActive" Award Watch:
Senior guard Eddie Mittermeyer poured in 21 of his game-high 24 points in the first half, while fellow senior Canan Huss tallied all 17 of his points before the break. Junior forward Miles Flanagan had a strong second half and chipped in 12 on the night.
