Gettysburg overcame an early 10-point deficit and won going away on the road at Dover, 60-48, in YAIAA Division II boys basketball action Tuesday night.

The Warriors received all but five of their points from Marquise Camel, Max Lampe and Ravaughn Dillard, with Camel and Lampe each pocketing 19 points and Dillard finishing with 17.

Dover (5-3, 3-3 YAIAA II) zipped to a 10-0 lead just over two minutes into the game before Camel's free throws broke the ice for the Warriors.

Gettysburg (6-2, 4-2) was able to shrink the deficit to 19-15 after the first quarter before a strong second quarter from the Eagles gave the hosts a 34-27 advantage heading to halftime.

"We shot the ball really well early in the game," Dover head coach Brian Schmoyer said. "We had a couple starters on the bench in the first half, but were able to weather that storm. But foul trouble really hurt us tonight."

Lampe tied the game for Gettysburg with a transition 3-pointer from the right wing with 2:26 left in the third quarter that evened things at 38. Then, a steal by Dillard led to a run out and slam by the high-flying junior that gave the Warriors their first lead of the night.

"We made so many mistakes early and once guys figured it out, we were very good defensively," Gettysburg head coach Jeff Bair said. "We showed some poise on offense, too."

An old-fashioned 3-point play by Lampe to open the fourth pushed Gettysburg's advantage to 43-38, but when Brady DeShong connected from beyond the arc for Dover with 3:50 to go, the game was knotted at 46.

Following a timeout with 3:00 to go, Dillard drove the lane and was fouled with 2:26 remaining. He made both charity tosses to put the Warriors in front to stay. That started a 14-2 run to end the game.

Najah Fink, who was coming off a 35-point effort in Dover's win over New Oxford on Monday, appeared headed for another big night on Tuesday as he went to halftime with 14 points and eight rebounds. But the Warriors limited his touches in the second half and he finished with 20 points and grabbed 16 rebounds before fouling out with 39 seconds left in the game.

"We committed multiple bodies to him to try to slow him down," Bair said. "He's a great player and that strategy didn't always work."

In addition to his 19 points, Camel had five rebounds and four steals, Lampe added five boards to his 19 points and Dillard corralled seven rebounds to go with 17 markers.

"This was a very good win for us tonight," Bair said. "Dover is a really, really good team. They'll be tough for everyone in the division and they'll win their share of games."
