William Penn repeats as Tourney Champs, 112-110 - Mar 13, 2017

William Penn was crowned champion of the Heart of America Athletic Conference Men's Basketball Tournament for the second-straight season, claiming a 112-100 win over Mount Mercy on Tuesday evening. BOX SCORE
William Penn (30-3) improved to 6-0 in its two seasons in the Heart Tournament, winning all six of its games by double digits and by an average margin of 14.2 points.
Following a first half that saw both teams shoot over 50 percent from the field, William Penn continued to scorch the nets by shooting 21 of 35 (.600) from the field in the second half to pull away. The Statesmen made 4 of 8 three-point shots in each half and finished the game hitting 42 of 75 field goals (.560) in total.
A fast-paced first half swung the way of the Statesmen in the final moments after the Mustangs held the lead most of the way. Antwain Strong (6'0''-PG) hit a three-pointer with 3:12 left that gave Mount Mercy a 50-43 lead, but conventional three-point plays by Torren Jones (6'9''-F-94) and Kevin Smith (6'0''-PG-93) sparked a 15-6 run. Jones finished the half by converting two free throws with two seconds left to provide the halftime cushion.
The Statesmen maintained the lead throughout the second half, but the Mustangs stayed within six points with 9:04 to play following a jumper by CJ Parker (6'5''-G). A put-back by Charles Knowles (6'5''-G/F) at the 8:48 mark was followed up by a three-pointer by Lionel Ellison, bulging the advantage to 13 points.
Mount Mercy closed to within nine points as late as the 4:11 mark on another basket by Parker, but would get no closer. William Penn followed with six-straight points and led by double digits the rest of the way.
Heart Player of the Year Torren Jones (6'9''-F-94) led five Statesmen in double figures with 26 points and 12 rebounds, while Jarvis Haywood (6'4''-G-94) added 23 points, eight rebounds and three assists. Ellison finished with 19 points, four rebounds and four steals, Kevin Smith (6'0''-PG-93) posted 16 points, seven assists and five rebounds, while Knowles chipped in with 12 points.
Strong came off the bench to finish with a team-leading 21 points, while Parker posted 20 points, four steals and three rebounds. Ben Struss (6'6''-F) and Chris Ford each added 14 points
