Marcellus Livingston Reaches 1,000 Career Points in Men’s Baske

(Money, GBC)

Junior Marcellus Livingston (Linden, NJ) became the program's 11th member of the 1,000-point club for Goldey-Beacom, which ran away in the second half for a 94-67 Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference rout of Bloomfield at the Jones Center in Wilmington, DE.
 
Livingston has been having yet another solid campaign and reached the mark on a jumper with 11:25 left in the opening half.  It was part of another game in which he scored in double figures, his 15th this season, by closing with 19 points on 8-of-14 shooting to go with six rebounds.
 
Livingston remains in 11th place in school history, now with 1,016 points.

The game itself saw the result in doubt as the Lightning held a 54-48 lead with 14:33 remaining.  But that was before GBC exploded on a 36-15 run over the next 12 minutes for a 90-63 cushion with 2:48 to go.
 
Livingston helped spark the run with seven points and junior Jordan Money (St Elizabeth), enjoying his best game of the season, also netted seven points.  Juniors Tevin Service (Union, NJ) and Tyler Jones (Lawrenceville, NJ) scored six points apiece in the spurt.
 
Money closed with a personal-best 15 points and sophomore Juran Ligonde (Boston, MA) had 13 and 12 rebounds for his second double-double of the season.  Jones had 11 points and eight assists with junior Kyle Elliot (Rahway, NJ) and freshman Nazim Derry (Atlantic City, NJ) adding 10 points apiece for the Lightning, who shot 69 percent (18-of-26) from the field in the second half and 10-for-14 from the line.
 
GBC for the game shot 60 percent (33-of-55) from the floor and canned nine 3-pointers.
 
Darin Bellinger scored 20 points to go with six 3-pointers and Safee Abdus-Sabur netted 12 points for the Bears (10-11, 6-6 CACC), who shot 41 percent (22-of-54) from the floor and hit 11 three-pointers.
 
Goldey-Beacom (9-11, 6-5) moves a full game ahead of idle Georgian Court (5-6) for second place in the CACC South Division.  The top two teams in each of the two divisions host a quarterfinal in the conference tournament.
 
It is a short turnaround for Goldey-Beacom, which next Tuesday is at University of the Sciences.  Game time in Philadelphia is at 7:30 pm, which follows the women's 5:30 pm contest.
