WASHINGTON – The Catholic University of America men's basketball team was locked in from long range on Tuesday night inside the DuFour Center as the Cardinals netted 18 3-pointers to shoot past Elizabethtown, 101-67. CUA shot 47-percent from beyond the arc, taking 30 more shots the Blue Jays in the game.

In addition to its shooting prowess, Catholic assisted on 22 of its 34 made baskets. CUA also forced Etown into 20 turnovers while only committing six of its own; including only one in the first half.

The Cardinals capitalized on the Blue Jay miscues, scoring 28 points off turnovers. CUA also pulled down 16 offensive rebounds in the game, turning them into 21 second-chance points.

Sophomore Jay Howard once again led the Cards in scoring, netting a game-high 19. Junior forward Corey Stanford posted a double-double with 17 points and 11 rebounds, adding three treys, two assists and a steal.

Both senior Kyle Phanord and junior Louis Khouri knocked down four triples, each finishing with 12 points.

It is the first time this season that CUA has eclipsed the 100-point mark, but the fourth time it has reached 90. Catholic is now averaging 82.6 points per game, shooting nearly 50 percent from the field (49.2). 

The Cardinals continue Landmark Conference action with two more games this week. CUA travels to Goucher on Thursday night at 7 p.m., before returning home to DuFour for a 2 p.m., showdown with Drew.
