Jack D’Entremont was shut out for three quarters Saturday. But when he turned on the offense, it made all the difference for the Raiders.
D’Entremont scored all eight of his points in the fourth quarter as Radnor halted a four-game slide with a 38-34 win over Haverford.
Lew Robinson led Radnor with 11 points. Jahmir Dixon chipped in six for the Raiders (9-4, 5-3).
John Seidman led all scorers with 17 points, and Allen Cieslak connected on three 3-pointers for nine points. But the Fords (6-7, 2-6) had only four players score and were just 3-for-9 from the free throw line in dropping their fifth straight. Those setbacks are by a combined 13 points, including losses in three overtimes and two overtimes this week.
