Jan 31, 2004

WASHINGTON --- William Morley (Olney, Md./Good Counsel) surpassed 1,500 career points, scoring a game-high 19 points and pulling down 10 rebounds, to help Catholic defeat Gallaudet, 67-52, Saturday afternoon in a Capital Athletic Conference game.

The senior was 5-of-10 from the floor and 9-of-10 from the free-throw line. His jumper with 2:14 left in the first half made him the 10th player in school history to surpass the 1,500-career point mark.

The pesky Bison gave the Cardinals all they could handle in the first half as Brendan Stern's three-pointer gave Gallaudet a 23-22 lead with 4:10 in the first half. Catholic (14-5, 6-2 CAC) used an 11-2 run to close the period and lead 34-25 at the break.

After the Bison used a 6-0 run early in the second to get within 36-31, junior Tim Burke (Wall, N.J./CBA) nailed his only bucket of the game, a three-pointer, to help CUA ignite a run of their own.

Shane Sowden's (Wilmington, Del./St. Elizabeth) bucket in the paint gave the Cardinals a 60-43 lead before Gallaudet would make things interesting. David Farias' trey got the Bison within 60-50 with 2:28 left in the game.

Robert Haney, the CAC's leading scorer and rebounder, poured in 16 points and a game-high 11 rebounds for Gallaudet (7-12, 1-7 CAC).

Sophomore Matt Tanner (Eldersburg, Md./St. Maria Goretti) chipped in 12 points and seven rebounds. It was the second straight double-double for Morley and his third on the season.

The Cardinals are back in action this Wednesday, February 4th as they host Salisbury University here at the DuFour Center. Tipoff is scheduled for 8 p.m.
