NH College Roundup: Boston College basketball team surges past Dartmouth
January 14. 2018 2:52AM
The Dartmouth College men's basketball team was on to something on Saturday before Boston College awoke in the second half to run past the Big Green 86-72 in Saturday's non-conference tilt at Conte Forum in Boston. Dartmouth had a lead with a minute left in the first half before Boston College ripped off a 28-4 spurt during that final minute and into the second half.
Dublin's Ian Sistare was 5-for-5 from the field in the first half for the Big Green (4-10), including four 3-pointers, on the way to a career-high 14 points. Sistare was held without a shot in the second half.
All five BC starters were in double figures with Ky Bowman's 19-point effort leading the way. The Eagles shot 55.9 percent from the field and outrebounded the Big Green 35-26.
Rhode Island College 86, Plymouth State 76: In Providence, R.I., Jaylen Leroy's career-high 43 points were all for naught as the Panthers couldn't complete a comeback against the Anchormen. Leroy, of Manchester, contributed a chunk of his 26 second-half points to help PSU (6-8, 0-5 Little East) cut a 17-point deficit to just five points at one point down the stretch. Mike Osgood, of Nashua, finished with 19 points and eight rebounds for PSU.
Colby-Sawyer 92, Maine Maritime 80: In Castine, Maine, five players scored in double figures for the Chargers and three of them scored at least 15 points. Austin Boudreau's 21-point effort led Colby-Sawyer as he hit seven of the team's 10 3-pointers. Manchester's Jourdain Bell and Bedford's Taylor Grande scored 15 and 14 points behind Boudreau. The win was a bounce-back performance for the Chargers (9-5, 6-1 North Atlantic) after dropping an 87-66 contest to Husson on Friday in Bangor, Maine. Franklin's Dana Bean was the high man for the Chargers in the loss with 20 points.
St. Joseph's 79, Rivier 59: In Nashua, leading the Monks' rout of the Raiders (1-13, 0-5, Great Northeast Atlantic) was Rochester's Darian Berry, who netted six 3-pointers on his way to a game-high 27 points. Rivier's leading scorer was Tristan Givens with 17 points.
Colby-Sawyer 52, Maine Maritime 50: In Castine, Maine, the Chargers won for the second time in as many days by way of work at the free-throw line inside the final seconds of a game. Saturday's win over Maine Maritime took a free throw each from Tianna Sugars and Emmani Robinson on back-to-back fouls with three seconds to play, as the conversions helped break a 50-50 tie. The late heroics by Colby-Sawyer (10-3, 6-1 North Atlantic Conference) were a carryover from Friday's 54-53 win over Husson University in Bangor, Maine. The Chargers upset the Eagles as Sugars hit a pair of free throws with 12 seconds to play.
Sunapee's Lexie Hamilton was a cog for Colby-Sawyer in both wins, scoring 16 points with four assists on Friday and then producing 12 points and seven assists on Saturday.
Plymouth State 51, Rhode Island College 48: In Providence, R.I., Concord's Cassidy Emerson turned away a shot in the final seconds of the game to help the Panthers earn their first Little East Conference win of the season. A 10-0 run over the first 4:29 of the third quarter helped PSU (5-9, 1-4 LEC) take the lead for good after trailing 40-37 after three quarters. Emerson scored eight points with nine rebounds while fellow Granite Staters Brittany Roche (Londonderry), Deb Morrill (Concord) and Elizabeth McLaughlin (Melvin Village) each turned in seven-point performances.
St. Rose 64, Franklin Pierce 62: In Rindge, Takora McIntyre's three-point play with 1:49 left in overtime helped St. Rose overtake Franklin Pierce (4-11, 1-9 Northeast-10). The Ravens sent the game to overtime with a Diondra Woumn putback with 18 seconds left after she pulled down a pair of offensive rebounds in the seconds prior. Woumn had a double-double for the Ravens with 17 points and 15 rebounds.
UMass-Darmouth 77, Keene State 59: In Keene, the Corsairs spouted off a 26-9 second quarter to pace its win over the Owls (2-13, 0-5 Little East). Emily McPadden tossed in a team-high 16 points for Keene State.
Husson 70, New England College 53: In Bangor, Maine, Rene Hudson's 17 points and eight rebounds were not enough to help the Pilgrims overcome the Eagles. Husson held NEC (6-5, 3-3 North Atlantic) to 18 second-half points, including just three in the third quarter.
St. Joseph's 91, Rivier 50: In Nashua, Rochester's Emily Benway was one of four Monks in double figures with 13 points in the win over the Raiders. Nashua's Lizzy Meehan's 16 points and nine points from Colebrook's Megan Hamel highlighted an otherwise rough day for Rivier (0-9, 0-4 Great Northeast Atlantic).
Post 8, Franklin Pierce 2: In Shelton, Conn., on Friday, the Eagles scored four goals in the third period after leading 4-2 through two periods. James Morrissey scored both goals for the Ravens (3-10-1).
Norwich 3, New England College 2: In Henniker, the Cadets scored two unanswered goals in the third period to turn back the Pilgrims. Joe Osaka and Patrick Bartolomucci provided a goal each for NEC (9-6-1, 4-5-1 New England Hockey).
Colgate 4, Dartmouth 1: In Hamilton, N.Y., Alyssa Baker tallied an unassisted score in the third period for the Big Green (4-12-1, 2-9-1 ECAC), which trailed 4-0 before the score. Colgate outshot Dartmouth 36-22.
Franklin Pierce 9, Post 1: In Shelton, Conn., on Friday, freshman Nicole Amato's six-point effort spurred the Ravens to their fifth consecutive win and ran their unbeaten streak to seven games. Amato netted a hat trick while assisting on three strikes for Franklin Pierce (9-6-1), which scored four goals in the opening period and three more in the third period.
