Men’s Basketball Struggles in 2013
The Frostburg State University men’s basketball team has not had a great season. The Bobcats have only two wins to boast of, compared to 18 losses. They have struggled, and they will fall short of their 2012-2013 season when they finished with a 10-16 record. With only four games left to play, the best they could finish is 7-18. The Bobcats will be happy to know that they will finish with two home games.
On a team plagued by losing, a few players have had solid performances. Jabari Kamau, a junior post, ranks third in the CAC in rebounds, using every inch of his 6’4 frame. His 265 points lead the team, but he no longer holds the team led in points per game. Junior James Peters, a forward, saw little action in the first half of the season. Over winter break, he entered the court and exploded. In just 11 games played, Peters has scored 156 points. Perhaps his best game came against the Salisbury Sea Gulls, when we he played 36 minutes and scored 34 points. The Bobcats would lose by a score of 92-80, but Peters’ effort kept it close. His seven three-pointers tied the FSU record.
Senior Aaron Bellamy has put together a solid season. Playing much bigger than his height, Bellamy averages over two turnovers a game, ranking seventh in the CAC. His 7.7 points per game average is right behind Kamau and Peters.
While the Bobcats have struggled, these three players have been crucial to the fight. Hopefully, we’ll see the team fight hard to finish on a high note.
The Bobcats will hit the road for two games against Southern Virginia University (Feb. 12) and Marymount (Feb. 15). They will return to their home court to host York on Feb.19 at 8 p.m. They will cap off the 2013-2014 season against Salisbury on Feb. 22.
