Tullis joins UPJ coaching staff

 Pitt-Johnstown coach Bob Rukavina has added former Pitt-Johnstown and Greater Johnstown High School standout Marcus Tullis to UPJ’s coaching staff.

Tullis played professionally for several seasons before returning to the Richland Township campus.

His UPJ resume is impressive. Tullis ranks fifth on the Pitt-Johnstown all-time scoring list with 1,570 points and eighth on the all-time rebounding list, with 6.4 rebounds a game. He helped the Mountain Cats advance to back-to-back NCAA Regional Tournament berths in 2008 and 2009.

Davis & Elkins defeat UPJ

ELKINS, W.Va. – Kayla DeCriscio hit eight 3-pointers and scored a career-high 24 points, and Kelsey Sleighter had 22 points, but it wasn’t enough to get new Pitt-Johnstown women’s basketball coach Mike Drahos a win in his debut.

Davis & Elkins erased a six-point halftime deficit to beat the Lady Cats 91-80 in a non-conference road game.

Rachel Johnson had 14 rebounds for UPJ, and Jasmine Harper had 13.

The Lady Cats play Washington Adventist University in Thursday’s 5:30 p.m. home opener at the Sports Center.


IUP is 10th in regional rankings

INDIANAPOLIS – After its third consecutive win, IUP moved into the NCAA Division II Super Region 1 rankings, showing up at No. 10 when they were released on Monday night.

This is the first appearance for the Crimson Hawks in the regional rankings this season, improving to 8-2 overall with a 55-20 win at home over Gannon on Saturday.

IUP racked up 658 yards of total offense in the win, including a career-high 378 passing yards and four touchdowns from quarterback Mike Box.


Agency: 72 elk taken in season

HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Game Commission said 72 elk were harvested in the one-week season that ended Saturday, including 25 bulls.

The commission said that means nearly 85 percent of the hunters who participated this year took home a trophy, including 100 percent of those with licenses to hunt antlered elk, or bulls.

Fourteen of the bulls taken weighed 700 pounds or more, with the largest at 847 pounds. The largest antlerless elk taken weighed 621 pounds, and 10 of the antlerless elk taken weighed 500 pounds or more.

The hunter who took the 847-pound bull did not give the Game Commission permission to release his name.

The 621-pound antlerless elk was taken Nov. 4 by Timothy Mazol of Danville.
