The men are identified as
33-year-old Don Bragg, who had 15 years
of mining experience -- and 47-year-old

The miners became separated

screen and tickles the twine on a deep
three ball from near Pennsylvania
Avenue.

Then in the second half, Redick

off the bounce gets to the rack,
finishes with the circus act and gets
the foul as part of a 41 point
afternoon for JJ, which matches his
career high.

But the Hoyas Brandon Bowman got
these two in transition to keep the
