Harrisonburg, Va. - The Eastern Mennonite men's basketball team snapped a two-game losing skid Saturday afternoon, taking apart Maryland Bible College 112-61 at the Don Glick Classic in Bridgewater. All 16 Royals in uniform played in the contest with 14 of the men getting into the scoring column.

Dajon Daniel (Fredericksburg, VA/Mountain View) started things off with an offensive put-back and EMU never looked back. The Runnin Royals never trailed and used a 15-2 run to blow open a double digit lead.

EMU scored the final seven points of the half to lead 56-23 at the break. Ryan Yates (Alexandria, VA/T.C. Williams) and R.J. Sims (Fort Washington, MD/Friendly) keyed a strong second half before the bench players took over with the lead at 89-49.

Eastern Mennonite shot 54% from the floor, had a 50-40 edge in rebounding, and forced 31 turnovers.

Yates finished 9-of-11 from the floor and charted a career high 21 points. He tied his career high with four steals and co-led the team with six rebounds. Sims and Owen Longacre (Telford, PA/Christopher Dock) each finished with 12 points.

Freshman Rashad Chambers (Covington, VA/Alleghany) had the best game of his career with nine points, three blocked shots and a pair of assists. Mike Richardson (Harrisonburg, VA/Broadway) also scored nine. Woody Furbush (Bridgeton, NJ/Salem) and Nic Sulc (Prince George, VA/Prince George) led the team over the final minutes of the game, with each scoring their career high.
