Men’s Basketball – Thiel
#23 Clandell Cetoute
6-8 Freshman Forward
Stat Line: 15 points, 6 rebounds
Following a shoulder injury to Thiel’s leading rebounder, senior Eric Mallinger, at Grove City, Tomcats head coach Tim Loomis said his freshmen forwards would need to step up. Freshman forward Clandell Cetoute answered the call against Geneva, producing 15 points and six rebounds in a 69-58 home victory. Cetoute was a perfect 7 for 7 from the field, collected two blocks on defense, and added one emphatic slam dunk. The PAC Sports Network selected Cetoute as the Player of the Game. Carson Fox caught up with Cetoute following the game.

Stat Line: 10 points, 9 rebounds
In a rematch of the PAC Championship Game from the last two seasons, the two-time reigning champion St. Vincent Bearcats again came out on top in an 81-67 triumph over the Thomas More Saints. It wasn’t flashy, but the Bearcats systematically took control of the game with six players tallying double figures. Amongst those in double digits was the team’s lone senior, Sean Kett, who fell just shy of a double-double with 10 points and nine rebounds. Kett once again proved to be a reliable source of production and leadership and was named our Foster Law Offices Player of the Game. The PAC Sports Network’s Nate Regotti chatted with Kett about the victory following the game.

#11 Abby Owings
5-2 Freshman Guard
Stat Line: 18 points, 6 rebounds, 4 steals
Everyone in the nation knows about the talents of Thomas More junior Sydney Moss, the reigning National Player of the Year. Basketball fans in the PAC also need to acquaint themselves with Thomas More freshman guard Abby Owings. The 5-2 Owings helped lead a second half comeback against the St. Vincent Bearcats for 75-58 victory at the Connor Convocation Center. Owings scored 18 points, 15 in the second half, as the Saints rallied from a 12-point deficit for an important PAC victory. Owings also terrorized St. Vincent with her quickness, corralling six rebounds and four steals. The win keeps the No. 2 ranked Saints undefeated at 15-0 (8-0).
