Lake Erie men's basketball goes wire-to-wire to beat Oberlin 79-67

Five Storm players scored in double figures, with Grafton native Jonny Manning leading the way with 14.

PAINESVILLE, Ohio — Five players scored in double figures and Lake Erie never trailed in a 79-67 win over Oberlin Tuesday night.

Grafton native Jonny Manning led the way with 15 points, while Jordan Burton added 12 along with nine assists. The Storm (7-4) also out-rebounded the Yeoman 37-26 and led by as many as many as 15.

Oberlin (5-8) briefly tied things up late in the first half, but fell behind again partly thanks to a lackluster showing from 3-point range (28%). Western Reserve grad Dorde Otasevic had a game-high 15 points and eight boards.

Lake Erie will next host Trevecca Nazarene Thursday afternoon in Painesville, while Oberlin will head back home to play Ohio Wesleyan that evening.
