Men's Basketball: Mitchell Joins 1,000 Point Club
Woody Mitchell, of Bushkill, PA, became the seventh player in Penn State DuBois Men's Basketball history to become a member of the 1,000 Point Club. He joins former players Rick Clark, Dylan Howard, Marcus Genevro, Chris Dickison, Josh Salter, and Jovan Brown as Penn State DuBois basketball players who have scored 1,000 points or above during their career at the campus. Mitchell scored his 1,000th career point in a game Monday night against Penn State Mont Alto. The DuBois men also bested Mont Alto in the game, 74-69.
Mitchell finished the contest with 17 points and 14 rebounds. Kyle Mills had a game high 19 points. John Hau turned in a workman like effort with 13 points and 6 rebounds, and Kai Ahmad rounded out the double figure scorers with 11 points to go along with 9 assists.
Mont Alto jumped out to an early 10-2 lead to start the game. DuBois battled back to take a 7 point halftime lead. Mont Alto controlled much of the second half and led by 5 points with 2:30 remaining in the game. DuBois went on a run highlighted by 2 foul shots made by John Hau (Coudersport) and a 2 point and 3 point field goal by Kyle Mills (East Stroudsburg North) which tied the score and set up the end of the game heroics. DuBois had the ball with 33 seconds remaining. Kai Ahmad (Stroudsburg) ran the clock down and drove past his defender and found an open Woody Mitchell (East Stroudsburg North) for the go ahead 3 point shot with 4 seconds to go in the game. Ahmad then stole the inbound pass and again found Mitchell for a layup to seal the victory.
