    • Goldey-Beacom Men’s Basketball Falls, 83-74, at Adelphi

       

      Goldey-Beacom enjoyed a great shooting night, but Adelphi had a slightly better night and it was enough to hand the visitors an 83-74 loss in Garden City, NY.

       

      The Lightning scratched their way within 62-55 with 8:11 left when freshman Daniel Cooper (Homestead, FL) made a layup.  But the Panthers scored the next seven points in just over two minutes to open a 69-55 cushion with 5:56 left.  Michael Coffey scored five points in that spurt that began with a huge 3-pointer.

       

      Senior Chris Gebhart (Cherry Hill, NJ) once again continued to be a force in the paint with a season-best 25 points to go with 11 rebounds for his fifth double-double of the season and third straight.  He also shot 12-of-14 from the floor, helping the Lightning hit an impressive 52 percent (29-of-56) from the field.

       

      Junior Domineek Owens (Philadelphia, PA) netted 20 points to fall one short of his second best and added six rebounds for Goldey-Beacom (3-6).  Senior Joey Getz (Philadelphia, PA) added eight points.

       

      Duane Morgan had 20 points and 10 rebounds, Coffey poured in 12 points and Boris Fodouop added 10 for the Panthers (4-5), who shot 53 percent (28-of-53) from the floor and hit seven 3-pointers.

       

      Goldey-Beacom is back on the road Saturday at Kutztown, starting at 7:00 pm.

    • Goldey-Beacom Women’s Basketball Rolls to 79-61 victory over U. of the Sciences

       

      Four players for Goldey-Beacom scored in double figures and the squad took charge in the second half for a 79-61 Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference win over U. of the Sciences at the Joseph West Jones Center.

       

      The Lightning (2-7, 2-1 CACC) scored seven straight points to turn a 43-34 lead into a 16-point cushion with 14:48 remaining.  Senior Lillian Chukwueze (Cherry Hill, NJ), who dominated overall for GBC, netted four points in that run.

       

      This went a long way to help during the second half, when Goldey-Beacom shot 54 percent (15-of-28) from the floor and 9-for-13 from the line.  U. of the Sciences was held to just 36 percent shooting (12-of-33) in the stanza and only was 3-for-4 from the stripe.

       

      Chukwueze closed with 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting, matched her season high of 12 rebounds and dished six assists to give her two double-doubles in the last three games.  Sophomore Jasmyne Lewis (Mount Holly, NJ) had 13 points and eight rebounds, Marisa Howard (Reminderville, OH) netted 13 points and fellow freshman Lexi Bruno (Millville, NJ) added 10 for the Lightning, who shot 53 percent (31-of-58) overall.

       

      Brianne Traub scored 23 points on 10-of-19 shooting with three 3-pointers for the Devils (2-4, 2-1), who were held to 37 percent shooting (23-of-62) and went just 8-of-27 from beyond the arc.

       

      Goldey-Beacom returns to the court Thursday for a non-conference tilt at Adelphi, starting at 5:30 pm.

       

       

       

      Goldey-Beacom Men’s Basketball Falls to U. of the Sciences

       

      Goldey-Beacom ran into a scoring machine in U. of the Sciences and was handed an 83-41 Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference loss at the Joseph West Jones Center.

       

      The Devils (8-2, 3-0 CACC) dominated from the outset, building a 40-14 halftime lead in which they shot 57 percent (17-of-30) from the floor and canned a trio of 3-pointers.  Sho Do-Silva and Dylan Kerwin scored 12 points apiece in the half with Garret Kerr adding seven and seven rebounds.

       

      Senior Chris Gebhart (Cherry Hill, NJ) played solidly in the post for the Lightning (3-5, 1-2), closing with 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting and 11 rebounds for his fourth double-double this season that all have come in the last five contests.

       

      Junior Domineek Owens (Philadelphia, PA) netted 10 points for GBC and shot 3-of-6 from the floor.  He now has six double-figure contests this season.

       

      Goldey-Beacom is back on the court Thursday at Adelphi, beginning at 7:30 pm.

      English Paces Iona MBB In 77-64 Win Over Rider

      Courtesy ICGaels.com
      Thu, December 11, 2014

      NEW ROCHELLE, NY - The Iona College men's basketball team earned a 77-64 victory over Rider in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference play at the Hynes Center. Junior guard A.J. English scored 30 points and grabbed a career-high 14 rebounds in the win.

      English posted his third career double-double and first of the point-rebound variety. It was his seventh straight 20+ point effort and second straight 30+ point effort. He became the seventh player in Iona history to record back-to-back 30+ point efforts. He added five assists and a steal in the win.

      Freshman Schadrac Casimir posted 19 points and three assists while junior Isaiah Williams had 15 points, four rebounds and four assists. Junior Ibn Muhammad posted six points and five rebounds while junior Kelvin Amayo added five.

      The Gaels trailed by five points early in the first half following a Jimmie Taylor jumper at the 17:19 mark that made the score 7-2. Down three just over five minutes into the game, Iona scored nine straight points in a 1:46 span to take the lead for good. Williams' three-ball from the wing at 14:23 was the final lead change of the contest. Casimir electrified the crowd with just under six minutes to play with back-to-back three pointers in 11 seconds. The Gael faithful rose to their feet when he fired away at a third attempt 15 seconds later and just came up short. The Gaels led by as many as 16 points following a conventional three-point play by Amayo with 1:41 remaining in the half. Rider cut the deficit to 40-28 at the half.

      Iona's largest lead of the contest was 17 early in the second half. English drained a three pointer with 18:39 remaining to put the score at 48-31. The Broncs did not go quietly, slowly chipping away before getting to within six points. Kahlil Alford hit two free throws with 5:09 left and Rider trailed 65-59. English and Williams sparked a 5-0 run to regain the double-digit advantage and Iona held on for the 77-64 win.

      Taylor scored 16 points and had six rebounds while Teddy Okereafor had 15 points, six boards and four assists.

      English joined a storied cast of Warren Issac (1964), Jeff Ruland (1978), Steve Burtt Sr. (1983, 1984 twice), Sean Green (1991), Steve Burtt Jr. (2006) and Mike Glover (2010) in the Gaels back-to-back 30+ point club. It is the ninth time the event has occurred at Iona.

      The Gaels played without the services of senior David Laury who sat out due to a violation of team rules.

      Iona continues action at the Hynes Center Saturday when it hosts Indiana State in an ESPN Bracketbusters return game at 2:00 pm.

      Wed, December 10, 2014

      BRONX, N.Y. – Collin Stewart’s (Glenville, N.Y./Mekeel Christian Academy) three-pointer at the end of regulation sent the game to overtime, but Fordham used a 14-1 run after falling behind 57-54 in the extra session to pull away for a 68-58 victory over Monmouth in non-conference action in Rose Hill Gym on Wednesday night.

       
      The Rams, who went 9-for-11 from the free throw line in the overtime period, tied the game at 57-57 with 2:41 remaining on Eric Paschell’s three-pointer and outscored Monmouth 11-1 over the final 1:21 to secure the win.
       
      Monmouth trailed 50-41 with 3:59 remaining in regulation and used an 8-0 run to pull within 50-49 with 44.5 ticks showing on a Brice Kofane (Yaounde, Cameroon/Miller School/Providence) 10-foot jumper off a feed from Andrew Nicholas (Wrightsville, Pa./Eastern York). A pair of Ram free throws gave Fordham a 52-49 advantage with 3.6 seconds left, before Stewart’s career-high third three-pointer sent the contest to overtime.
       
      Fordham used an 11-0 run over 3:21 of play to take an early 11-2 advantage, before two Kofane free throws got the Hawks within 20-15 with 8:39 left in the stanza. The Rams pushed their advantage to 11 just before the half, but two Chris Brady (Greenlawn, N.Y./Harborfields) free throws put the score at 31-22 at the break.
       
      Justin Robinson’s (Lake Katrine, N.Y./Kingston) wing three-pointer pulled the Hawks within 34-29 at 17:54, but the Rams answered with a 7-0 run to claim a 41-29 edge with 11:52 left. Consecutive treys from Nicholas and Stewart ignited a 9-0 Monmouth streak, which pulled the Hawks within 41-38 with 7:04 showing.
       
      The Rams scored nine of the game’s next 12 to hold the 50-41 cushion with 3:59 left on Paschell’s tip-in.
       
      Monmouth, which hit 2-of-9 from the field in the extra session, hit 36.0% (18-50) overall from the floor, while the Rams connected on 44.2% (23-52).
       
      Deon Jones (Wilmington, Del./Sanford School) led the Hawks with 16 points and six rebounds, while Stewart added nine points. Max DiLeo (Cinnaminson, N.J./Cinnaminson) and Josh James (Greenburgh, N.Y./Archbishop Stepinac) chipped in seven points each, while Robinson notched five points, six rebounds, four assists and a pair of steals. Kofane added seven rebounds and four blocks.
       
      Monmouth returns to action on Saturday, December 20 when the Hawks travel to Wagner College for a 4:00 p.m. game at the Spiro Center.

      Dover, Del. (Dec. 10, 2014) --- Campbell had two 12-0 runs in the first half to key a 70-55 men’s basketball win over Delaware State in Memorial Hall Wednesday evening.

      The Fighting Camels won their second straight game to improve to 3-5 this season, while the Hornets dropped to 4-5.

      The score was 11-11 when the Camels scored 12 unanswered points to open up a 23-11 lead. After the Hornets hit two free throws to pull to within 23-13, Campbell posted another 12-0 run to hold its biggest first half lead, 35-13, with 3:32 left before halftime.  

      The Camels nailed five three-point field goals during the two runs, including one on four consecutive possessions during the second spurt.

      Delaware State showed late first half spark, scoring the last nine points of the half to trail 35-22 at the break. Amere May scored seven points to key the DSU spurt.

      Campbell was six-for-12 on three-point shots in the first 20 minutes, while the Hornets hit just one-of- nine from beyond the arc in the opening frame.  

      The Hornets got off to a good start in the second half to pull to within single digits. Kendall Gray had a basket and free throw, and Kendal Williams hit a short jumper on DSU’s first two second half possessions to cut Campbell’s lead to 35-27 with 18:39 left to play.

      The Camels responded with a 12-2 run to regain control. Reco McCarter capped off the run with two free throws to give Campbell a 47-29 lead with 14:26 remaining.

      Reserve D.J. Mason had five of his team-high 15 points for the Camels during the run. Mason was six-for-seven from the field, including a three-pointer on his only attempt.

      Campbell opened up its biggest lead of the game, 68-42, on a basket with 5:47 left to play.

      Kyre’ Hamer added 12 points for the Camels, while Curtis Phillips chipped in nine. Nine of the 10 players who competed for the visitors scored at least two points.

      Campbell outscored Delaware State 34-4 in bench points in the contest.  

      May scored a game-high 28 points for the Hornets, his second highest point total of the season. He was eight-for-17 from the field and made good on all 10 of his free throws.

      Delaware State’s Kendall Gray had seven points and seven rebounds, snapping a string of four straight games with double figures in points and boards.

      Gray led all players with five blocks, marking the 20th time in his career with at least five in a contest.  He has at least one block in each game this season, and at least one in 16 straight dating back to the 2013-14 season.

      Gray now has 36 blocks in nine games this season (4.0 pg). He was tops in the MEAC and third among all NCAA players in total blocks and fourth in the nation in blocks per game entering the contest.  

      The Hornets were 18-for-43 from the field (41.9%), but just two-of-18 from three-point territory. Campbell shot 49 percent from the floor (24-for-49), including 52.9% from three-point range (nine-of-17).

      Campbell won the rebound battle 30-26.

      Delaware State begins a four-game road stretch at Rhode Island on Saturday (Dec. 13). Game time is 2 p.m. The Hornets will also visit St. Francis Brooklyn (Dec. 17), Oregon (Dec. 20) and Temple (Dec. 28) before returning home to face Cheyney on Jan. 5, 2015 (7 p.m.).

      FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

       

      Harrison, Laney Named MBWA Players of the Week

       

      NEW YORK (Dec. 9, 2014) --- D’Angelo Harrison of St. John’s and Betnijah Laney of Rutgers have been named men’s and women’s Player of the Week, respectively, by the Met Basketball Writers Assn.

       

      The awards, for games played Dec. 1-7, are unique in that they encompass players from 73 Met area schools across Divisions I, II and III.

       

      A 6-4 senior guard from Missouri City, Texas, Harrison --- who also was named Big East Player of the Week --- averaged 20.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and shot 48.0% (12-25) from the field to lead the Red Storm (6-1), now ranked No. 24 by the Associated Press, to a 69-57 victory at Syracuse and a 70-57 homecourt triumph over Niagara.

       

      Harrison scored a game-high 24 points in St. John’s first victory over the Orange at the Carrier Dome in 15 years. He scored 16 points and grabbed a team-high nine rebounds in the win over Niagara.

       

      Harrison has scored double-figures in each of the Red Storm’s seven games this season and is second in the Big East with 18.4 ppg. He has moved into eighth place on the school’s career scoring list (1,730 points).

       

      Players receiving MBWA men’s Honorable Mention for the week: Granville Gittens, Baruch; Kevin Herrington, Drew; Damon Lynn, NJIT; Ameen Tanksley, Hofstra; Justin Robinson, Monmouth; Shelby Rosenberg, Yeshiva; Kyle Wilson, Army; James Zuccaro, Mount Saint Vincent.

       

      Laney, a 6-foot senior forward from Clayton, Del., averaged 18.0 points, 17.5 rebounds and shot 51.7% from the field in a pair of top 25 contests as the Scarlet Knights (7-1) last week defeated then No. 25 host Arkansas 64-52 and lost to then No. 6 visiting North Carolina 96-93 in double overtime. So far she has collected eight straight double-doubles to open the season.

       

      Laney poured in 24 points and hauled in 24 rebounds in playing all 50 minutes against North Carolina as she collected her 1,000th career point and cracked the top 15 on RU’s all-time rebounding list. Her 24 rebounds represent a RAC (Rutgers Athletic Center) record for men or women, and surpassed the previous mark of 21 held by women’s basketball Hall of Famer and former WNBA All-Star Sue Wicks set back in 1987 against Penn State. Laney finished the game two rebounds shy of tying the RU women’s basketball single-game record of 26 set in 1977.

       

      At Arkansas, Laney posted 12 points and 11 boards, and shot 50% from the floor to go along with three assists, two steals and a block.

       

      On the season, she is averaging 16.0 points and 14.8 rebounds.

      Hubbard Scores Career-High 21; Syracuse Defeats Loyola, 70-37

       

      SYRACUSE – Tyler Hubbard scored a career-high 21 points for Loyola University Maryland, but the Greyhounds shot just 19.2 percent from the field, and Syracuse University dealt the Greyhounds a 70-37 defeat Tuesday night in the Carrier Dome.

       

      The Orange (4-1 overall) scored the game’s first 14 points and did not allow a Greyhounds field goal until Hubbard hit his first of five 3-pointers 11:28 into the game.

       

      Syracuse led by as many as 16 in the first half, but Hubbard made it a nine-point game, 25-16, with 39 seconds left in the first half. Rakeen Christmas, however, grabbed an offensive rebound for the Orange, laid it in and made a free throw after being fouled with 1.1 seconds left, sending the Orange into the locker room up 12.

       

      The Orange then scored 14 of the second half’s first 15 points to lead 42-17 on a Kaleb Joseph jumper in transition with 14:51 on the clock.

       

      Eric Laster, who added 14 points for the Greyhounds, made two free throws and a three of his own, and after a Christmas free throw Hubbard hit another three, was fouled and made it a four-point play with a free throw at 1:14.

       

      That paly made it 43-26 Syracuse, but it was as close as Loyola (2-3) would draw as the Orange scored the next 13 points.

       

      Hubbard made 5-of-14 from 3-point range, and he also was 6-of-6 at the free-throw line. Laster led Loyola with six rebounds, as Syracuse had a 40-36 advantage on the boards. Andre Walker added a career-best six assists for the Greyhounds.

       

      Christmas led three Orange in double figures with 18 points. Chris McCullough added 17, and Trevor Cooney had 13.

       

      Hubbard’s 21 points eclipsed his previous high by one. He scored 20 in a Feb. 5, 2014, win over American University.

       

      Loyola returns to its home court on Saturday, Nov. 29, to face Siena College at Reitz Arena at 7 p.m.

      Betnijah Laney Collects Fourth Straight Double-Double; Kahelah Copper Pours in 20 Points

       

      STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. (Nov. 25, 2014) – Two Scarlet Knights reached the 20-point mark as the Rutgers women’s basketball sailed to an 81-53 victory over the Wagner Seahawks Tuesday night at the Spiro Sport Center to improve to 4-0 on the season.

       

      Betnijah Laney (Clayton, Del.) poured in her fourth consecutive double-double with 22 points and 11 rebounds, while Kahleah Copper (Philadelphia, Pa.) added in 20 points to spoil the Seahawks home opener. Tyler Scaife (Little Rock, Ark.) totaled 15 points, along with a career-tying seven rebounds and six assists. Bryiona Canty (Willingboro,N.J.)  also contributed 11 points in the win.

       

      The host Seahawks were able to create a 12-6 edge early in the game and led the Scarlet Knights, 18-4, with 10:16 remaining in the first half. From there, however, RU took a 13-0 run and never looked back.  Rutgers muscled their way inside over the next four minutes for a 27-18 lead with 6:37 to go.

       

      Wagner, who shot 7-13 from beyond the arc in the first half, pulled within six, 29-23, with 5:17 left until the half. As Jasmine Nwajei’s three-pointer cut the Rutgers lead to 29-23,  two minutes later the Scarlet Knights would claim a double-digit edge, one they would not relinquish the rest of the night.

       

      Rachel Hollivay sunk two free throws with just over three minutes remaining to give RU a 10-point edge and double-digit lead the rest of the way. The Scarlet Knights entered the half with a 50-37 advantage.

       

      The second half started with RU on an 8-0 run and by the midway point of the second half the Scarlet Knights had outscored the Seahawks, 20-6.  Wagner, who had kept the game close in the first half on its three-point prowess, shot only 2-of-10 from three-point range in the second.

       

      Natalie Parsons (Bountiful, Utah) helped the Scarlet Knights to the final 81-53 margin connecting on her first three-pointer of her career.

       

      Rutgers controlled the paint scoring 50 of its 81 total points inside. Last season, the Scarlet Knights collected a season-high 52 points in the paint against Wagner.

       

      Nwajei paced Wagner with 16 points. Lyndsay Rowe, who was 3-of-3 from beyond the arc, finished with 13 points.

       

      After two games on the road, Rutgers returns to the friendly confides of the RAC for a three-game homestand, which begins with Colgate on Friday, Nov. 28. Tip-off is set for 2 p.m. EST.

      Betnijah Laney Named to B1G Honor Roll

      Scarlet Knights Move Up to No. 21 in Associated Press Poll

       

      PISCATAWAY, N.J. (November 24, 2014) – Senior forward Betnijah Laney (Clayton, Del.) was named to the Big Ten Women’s Basketball Honor Roll, it was announced on Monday by the conference office. Additionally, RU moved up one position in the Associated Press Poll to No. 21.

       

      Laney averaged 12.0 points and 14.5 rebounds in Rutgers' 2-0 week with wins over Northeastern and LSU. She has registered a double-double in all three Scarlet Knight games to date and has 18 double-doubles in her career.

       

      Against Northeastern in a 74-60 win, Laney was one of five Scarlet Knights in double figures and one of two players with a double-double. She shot 54.5 percent (6-of-11) from the floor for 14 points along with 13 rebounds.

       

      In RU's first road game of the season, Laney had 10 points along with a career-high 16 rebounds in a 64-57 victory at LSU. Her 16 rebounds against the Tigers set a new career mark surpassing her previous career-high of 15 against Houston on Jan. 4, 2014. That was

      also the last time a Scarlet Knight had 15 or more rebounds in a game.

       

      On the year, Laney is averaging 11.3 points and 14.0 rebounds per game.

       

      Moving up one position to No. 21 in the AP Poll, the Rutgers women’s basketball team returns to action on Tuesday night at Wagner at 7 p.m. The Scarlet Knights were ranked No. 24 in last week’s  ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll. The new coaches’ poll will be released on Tuesday.

      English Scores 37 in Iona MBB Win At North Texas, 78-58

      Courtesy ICGaels.com
      Sun, November 23, 2014

      DENTON, TX - Juniors A.J. English and Isaiah Williams each contributed career-high point efforts in leading the Iona College men's basketball team to a 78-58 win over North Texas in non-conference action at The Super Pit. English netted 37 and Williams had 21 as the Gaels improved to 2-0 in the BD GlobalSports Roundball Showcase.

      English was 11-for-21 from the field, 5-for-11 from beyond the arc and 10-for-12 from the free throw line to account for his 37 points. He scored 26 in the second half alone as the Gaels pulled away from the Mean Green. English also added a team-best eight rebounds, four assists and three steals and did not record a turnover in 39 minutes of play.

      Williams had 21 points, shooting 6-of-12 from the field and 5-of-10 from beyond the arc and was 4-for-4 from the charity stripe. He added three rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block. Senior David Laury posted 14 points in support of his two teammates. Junior Kelvin Amayo had four points, seven rebounds and three assists.

      The Gaels struggled mightily from the field in the opening half. Iona hit just seven of its first 26 field goal attempts (26.9%) and were 3-for-18 (16.7%) from beyond the arc with eight turnovers through the first 18:06 of the half. Despite the woes, the Maroon & Gold trailed by just seven points with 2:49 to play. A mid-range jumper by English followed by two free throws and a three-pointer by Williams and emphatic dunk from Amayo led to a 9-0 run in less than a minute and a two-point Iona lead with 62 ticks left. North Texas had a field goal on its final possession to knot the score at 32-32 going into halftime.

      Iona scored the first 10 points of the second half and led by the margin just 3:23 into the frame. In total, Iona's run was 19-2 over 7:18 to take command of the contest. The Mean Green got within eight points with 15:30 left but would not get any closer.

      Coming into the contest, North Texas out rebounded its first three opponents by an average of 12 per game while the Gaels have been out rebounded by 12.7. The Mean Green had a slight 35-21 advantage on the glass. After eight turnovers in the first 18 minutes, Iona had just two in the final 22 and had 15 assists in the contest.

      North Texas was led by Jordan Williams' 11 points. Armani Flanigan had nine points and eight rebounds.

      The Gaels return to New Rochelle and host Delaware State on Wednesday (Nov. 26), Thanksgiving Eve at the Hynes Center in game three of the Roundball Showcase.

      HAWKS FALL TO TOWSON 79-75 IN OVERTIME

      Courtesy Monmouth Sports Information
      Sun, November 23, 2014

      WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. – Monmouth University senior Andrew Nicholas (Wrightsville, Pa./Eastern York), who eclipsed the 1,000-point plateau for his career, led four Hawks in double-figures with a team-best 24 points, but the Blue & White dropped a 79-75 overtime decision to Towson University in the 2014 CBE Hall of Fame Classic in the MAC on Sunday afternoon.

       
      Nicholas, who hit his sixth three-pointer to tie a career high for the third time with 28.1 seconds left in overtime, gave Monmouth a 75-74 lead, but the Tigers answered with a three-pointer of their own with 3.5 ticks showing and iced the game with a pair of free throws with 1.7 on the clock.
       
      A pair of Deon Jones (Wilmington, Del./Sanford School) free throws put Monmouth in front 66-58 with 2:26 left, but Towson answered with an 8-0 run over the remainder of regulation to force overtime, which included three foul shots from Four McGlynn with 12.0 seconds showing to tie the game at 66-66.
       
      The Tigers scored the first five points of the extra session, before six straight from Jones put MU in front 72-71 with 2:09 left. Nicholas drilled his sixth trey from the wing to reclaim a 75-74 edge for the Hawks, but Alex Gavrilovic’s three-pointer from the far corner put TU back in front for good.
       
      “Tonight was a tough one and we didn’t get it done down the stretch. We missed too many layups and too many free throws. I probably should’ve been able to help them more down the stretch and I didn’t get that done. We will get back to work,” stated head coach King Rice.
       
      Jones notched his fourth straight double-digit outing to open the season with 16 points, while Justin Robinson (Lake Katrine, N.Y./Kingston) added 14, and Brice Kofane (Yaounde, Cameroon/Miller School/Providence) notched 10 points, five rebounds and tied a career-high with seven blocks.
       
      After falling behind 10-4 early, Monmouth used a 14-1 run, capped by a Nicholas trey, to take an 18-11 lead with 12:44 left in the first half, built the advantage to 39-23 on Kofane’s lay-in with 2:51 showing and took a 41-29 lead into intermission following a pair of Robinson foul shots with 4.1 on the clock.
       
      A pair of Robinson three-pointers out of the break pushed MU in front 47-31 with 18:11 remaining, while three Collin Stewart (Glenville, N.Y./Mekeel Christian Academy) free throws at 8:20 gave the Hawks a 60-48 lead.
       
      Monmouth, which connected on a season-high 10 three-pointers, shot 43.3% (26-60) from the floor and 13-of-17 from the foul line, but was outrebounded 48-26. MU, which turned 17 Towson turnovers into 24 points, turned the ball over itself just six times.
       
      Nicholas, who became Monmouth’s 20th Division I 1,000-point scorer on the day now has 1,008 points, and ranks 10th in career made three-pointers with 136.
       
      Monmouth returns to action on Friday, November 28 when the Hawks travel to the University of Maryland to complete play in the 2014 CBE Hall of Fame Classic at the XFINITY Center. Tip is set for 7:00 p.m.

      SUBJECT: University of Delaware Men’s Basketball Can’t Find Shooting Stroke in 70-52 Non-League Setback at CSU Bakersfield
       
      DATE: November 23, 2014
       
      BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -- The University of Delaware men’s basketball team connected on just 12 shots from the field on the afternoon as the Blue Hens suffered a 70-52 non-conference setback to CSU Bakersfield Sunday afternoon at the Icardo Center.
       
      Delaware shot just 26.7 percent from the field and hit only five field goals during the second half while dropping to 0-3 on the campaign. Sophomore Devonne Pinkard paced the Blue Hens with 14 points and a career-high 10 rebounds to post his first career double-double while classmate Cazmon Hayes added 12 points, all in the first half.
       
      Kory Holden reached double figures for the third consecutive game by scoring 10 points to go with four assists, while fellow rookie Chivarsky Corbett contributed eight points and six rebounds. Delaware did connect on 21 of 32 free throws but could not overcome its third consecutive shooting performance under 32 percent.
       
      Aly Ahmed posted team-highs of 19 points and nine rebounds for the Roadrunners, who improved to 1-4 on the year. Cortez Conners chipped in with 14 points, while Brent Wrapp dished out a game-best six assists.
       
      The Blue Hens trailed by just six points at the half but went without a field goal for the first eight and a half minutes of the second half and never got within single digits the rest of the way.
       
      The Roadrunners scored the first eight points of the stanza, including six by Ahmed, to go in front 42-28 with 14:46 remaining. A free throw by Anthony Mosley followed by a Maurice Jeffers putback closed the gap to 46-35 with 11:29 to play, but CSUB answered and eventually took a 56-38 lead when Conners buried a three-pointer at the 7:13 mark.
       
      Delaware never got closer than 12 points the rest of the way, while the Roadrunners went up 21 late before Corbett closed the scoring with a triple.
       
      “We’ve gone through stretches these last two games were the ball is just not going in the basket for us,” said Blue Hen head coach Monté Ross. “We have to stick with it; it’s a long season and our shots will start falling. Our guys will keep working hard and are not going to quit. We were able to hold down Ahmed a little bit, but he’s a good player and when he gets a good angle down low he’s tough to stop.”
       
      The teams were tied 7-7 after the first four minutes and even though Delaware then went nine minutes without a field goal, CSUB wasn’t much better as UD closed within 17-14 following a Hayes three-pointer.
       
      Later Ahmed scored inside to give the Runners their largest lead of the half at 29-20, but Pinkard and Hayes each connected from behind the arc on consecutive possessions as the Blue Hens closed within three. However Tyrell Corbin answered with a three-point play for CSUB, and following two Holden free throws, Conners beat the buzzer with a jumper to make it a 34-28 game at the break.
       
      Delaware closes outs its West Coast trip on Tuesday with an 8 p.m. PT game at Stanford that will be televised on the PAC-12 Network.
       
      Game Notes:
      • The game was the first ever meeting between Delaware and CSUB
      • The contest was also the Blue Hens’ first game vs. a WAC school
      • UD has opened 0-3 for the first time since the 2007-08 season
      • The Roadrunners held a 45-37 rebounding advantage
      • UD scored its fewest points since a 64-50 loss at James Madison on Jan. 23, 2013

      HAWKS DEFEAT CCSU 65-50 ON SATURDAY NIGHT

      Courtesy Monmouth Sports Information
      Sat, November 22, 2014

      WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. – Paced by three Hawks in double-figures, Monmouth University posted a 65-50 victory over Central Connecticut State on Saturday night in the MAC as part of the 2014 CBE Hall of Fame Classic. Justin Robinson (Lake Katrine, N.Y./Kingston), who dropped in 10 of his team-high 15 points in the first half, led the Hawks, as Monmouth climbed out of an early deficit and used runs of 15-0, 16-2, and 13-0 to run away from the Blue Devils for a 15-point victory to improve to 2-1 on the season.

       
      "I am very impressed with my kids’ effort,” stated head coach King Rice. “We got off to a slow, slow start but they really stuck together. We are still a young team, so that can happen sometimes, but they showed a lot of character, a lot of fight, a lot of togetherness to go from 12 down to up 15-12, and then to carry from there on out. A great win for the Hawks and we are looking forward to tomorrow.”
       
      Central, which opened 4-for-5 from the field, raced out to a 12-0 lead at 17:06, before the Hawks retaliated with a 15-0 run over a span of 7:37 to claim a 15-12 lead, which was highlighted by three-pointers from Deon Jones (Wilmington, Del./Sanford School) and Collin Stewart (Glenville, N.Y./Mekeel Christian Academy).
       
      After the Blue Devils, who went scoreless for 10:12 of play, reclaimed a 17-15 edge with 6:30 remaining, Monmouth ended the half on a 16-6 run, which culminated in a 10-2 spurt over the final 2:10 of action, to take a 31-23 lead at the break, as Robinson’s seven points led the way.
       
      CC opened the second half on a 10-4 run to climb within 35-33 with 15:44 left, but the Hawks answered with a 13-0 streak, highlighted by three-pointers from Robinson, Jones and Stewart to claim a 48-33 advantage with 11:31 showing.
       
      An Andrew Nicholas (Wrightsville, Pa./Eastern York) trifecta pushed the Monmouth lead to 51-35 at 10:15, while the senior’s second make of the half from deep gave the Blue & White a 54-39 cushion with 8:13 on the clock.
       
      The Blue Devils scraped to within 10, 58-48 with 2:49 left, but Chris Brady’s (Greenlawn, N.Y./Harborfields) first career three-pointer from the top of the key with 1:45 remaining guided the Hawks through the end.
       
      Monmouth got a pair of 12-point outings from Jones, who also added six rebounds, and Nicholas, while Stewart dropped in eight for the Hawks. The Blue & White, which forced 18 turnovers, registered 15 assists on 25 made field goals, while connecting on 43.9% from the field, and a season-high nine made three-pointers.
       
      Monmouth returns to action on Sunday, when the Hawks host Towson University on the final day of the 2014 CBE Hall of Fame Classic in the MAC. Tip is set for 4:30 p.m., following Bethune-Cookman and CCSU at 2:00 p.m.

      No. 22/24 Rutgers Tops Tigers, 64-57

      Scarlet Knights Extend Win Streak to Nine Games in First Road Victory of Season

       

      BATON ROUGE, La. (November 22, 2014) – After 15 lead changes and eight ties, the No. 22/24 Rutgers women’s basketball team was able to use a run midway through the second half for its first road victory of the season with a 64-57 win over LSU on Saturday afternoon.  

       

      Leading by four, 52-48, with 6:41 remaining, the Scarlet Knight took off on a 9-0 to keep the game out of reach for the host Tigers. LSU would not draw closer than seven the rest of the way 

      The victory improved RU to 3-0 on the year, while LSU fell to 2-3 overall.

       

      A total of four Scarlet Knights finished the game with double figure scoring, as sophomore Tyler Scaife (Little Rock, Ark.) paced the unit with 16 points. Junior Betnijah Laney (Clayton, Del.) poured in her third straight double with 10 points and a career-high 16 rebounds.  Backed by a 5-of-5 shooting performance from the charity stripe, Rachel Hollivay (Columbus, Ga.) followed with 13 points as did redshirt junior Briyona Canty from off the bench.

       

      After a back-and-fourth battle on the floor, the Scarlet Knights ended the first half on a 6-0 run to go into the locker room up 32-27.  

       

      For nearly an eight minute span, neither team was able to go ahead more than a point, until 1:35 left before the intermission when Hollivay knocked two down at the free throw line, giving RU the lead at 28-27. She then secured a layup, followed by a put-back from senior Syessence Davis (Neptune, N.J.) in the final seconds to give Rutgers a five-point advantage at the half.

       

      The Tigers took a brief lead early, outscoring the Scarlet Knights 6-2 to kick off the second half. Anne Jones capped the run to give her LSU squad a 35-34 lead with 16:37 to go.

       

      On the next trip down the court, Canty knocked down a pair of free throw to give RU the lead for good.

       

      The Scarlet Knight extended that lead to as many as seven, 50-43, with 8:52 remaining, however the Tigers managed to close the gap. LSU pulled to within four, two minutes later off a Jenna Deemer free throw and layup by Akilah Bethel.

       

      Ahead, 52-48, Hollivay kicked off the 9-0 run muscling inside for two of 38 paint points for the Scarlet Knights.

       

      Rutgers remains on the road, but with a much shorter trip. The Scarlet Knights travel to Staten Island, N.Y. to meet Wagner on Tuesday, Nov. 25 at 7 p.m.

      MONMOUTH FLIES TO HOME OPENING 73-50 VICTORY OVER BETHUNE-COOKMAN

      Courtesy Monmouth Sports Information
      Fri, November 21, 2014

      WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. – Monmouth University connected on 54.3% from the floor, while eight different Hawks scored at least six points, led by Deon Jones’ (Wilmington, Del./Sanford School) 14, as the Blue & White defeated Bethune-Cookman University 73-50 in its home opener on Friday night, as part of the 2014 CBE Hall of Fame Classic.

       
      “I am very excited about this win tonight,” said head coach King Rice. “Our team is getting better and they are working extremely hard. I felt bad for them after last week because I thought we played well enough to win, but we didn’t want to bring a downer into this week, and the kids have been outstanding getting prepared for a tough weekend and I couldn’t be more proud of them.”
       
      Monmouth (25-for-46 FG) won its home opener for the 19th time in its Division I history, as Jones scored in double-figures for the 36th time in his career, tying a career-high with three made three-pointers, while Josh James (Greenburgh, N.Y./Archbishop Stepinac), Andrew Nicholas (Wrightsville, Pa./Eastern York) and Zac Tillman (Yeadon, Pa./Shipley School) each added eight points apiece. In addition, Justin Robinson (Lake Katrine, N.Y./Kingston) tallied seven points and six assists, while freshman Austin Tilghman (Wilmington, Del./Archbishop Carrol) notched seven points, six rebounds and three assists.
       
      Monmouth took the lead for good with 14:27 on the clock in the first half on Jones’ first three-pointer, giving the Hawks a 7-6 advantage, which was built to a 19-8 edge behind consecutive Tilghman full court drives to cap a 15-2 run at the 9:33 mark.
       
      The Hawks grabbed a 29-16 lead on another Jones trey from the corner with 2:13 showing, while a James lay-in as time expired on the half, put MU ahead 32-19 at the break.
       
      Back-to-back offensive rebounds and putbacks from Robinson and Tillman gave the Blue & White a 40-25 advantage with 15:10 left, while Collin Stewart (Glenville, N.Y./Mekeel Christian Academy) threw down an alley-oop dunk off a feed from Tilghman with 13:24 showing to put MU in front 44-27.
       
      A 9-0 run, which included four points from Max DiLeo (Cinnaminson, N.J./Cinnaminson), pushed the Hawks to a 53-29 lead at 10:14, while his lay-in with 2:01 remaining gave Monmouth its largest lead of 26 points, 71-45.
       
      Monmouth outscored BCU 42-16 in the paint and turned 22 Wildcat turnovers into 23 points.
       
      Clemmye Owens led all scorers with 22 points, 17 of which came in the second half, while Quentin Brewer added 12 for Bethune-Cookman (1-2).
       
      Rice added, “Thank you to all the fans who came out tonight. It was great seeing a bunch of people out there supporting the Hawks.”
       
      Redshirt freshman Ba'shawn Mickens (Summit, N.J./Summit) also scored his first career points for Monmouth, while senior Mike DeLorenzo (Hackettstown, N.J./Hackettstown) and freshman Daniel Pillari (Oceanport, N.J./Shore Regional) made their first career appearances.
       
      Monmouth returns to action tomorrow night, when the Hawks host Central Connecticut State on the second day of action in the 2014 CBE Hall of Fame Classic in the MAC. Tip is set for 7:30 p.m., following Bethune-Cookman and Towson at 5:00 p.m.

      No. 22/24 Rutgers Women’s Basketball Rolls to 74-60 Win over Northeastern

       

      PISCATAWAY, N.J. (November 14, 2014) – Led by double-double efforts from junior guard Briyona Canty (Willingboro, N.J.) and senior forward Betnijah Laney (Clayton, Del.), Rutgers  rolled to a 74-60 victory over Northeastern on Tuesday night at the RAC.

       

      Rutgers improved to 2-0 and improves its win-streak to eight games dating back to last season’s WNIT championship run.

       

      A total of five Scarlet Knights concluded the game in double figures. Freshman Tyler Scaife (Little Rock, Ark.) paced the squad with 15 points, while Laney recorded her 17th career double-double with 14 points and 13 rebounds. Canty had her first career double-double with 12 points and a career-high 10 assists. Juniors Kahleah Copper (Philadelphia, Pa.) and Rachel Hollivay (Columbus, Miss.) also added to count, notching 10 points apiece.

       

      Northeastern jumped to an early 7-4 lead to start the contest, holding Rutgers scoreless for nearly a three-minute span. With the Huskies ahead, 12-6, five minutes into the contest, Laney drained a jumper to end RU’s drought as the Scarlet Knights would go on to take a 12-0 run and take over the lead for good.

       

      Huskie Samantha DeFreese ended the drought for her squad with two free throws, but junior Cynthia Hernandez (Ventura, Calif.) responded by coming off the bench to sink her first collegiate three-pointer  to give RU a 23-14 advantage with 5:50 remaining  in the first half.

       

      Three-point shooting kept the game close late in the first half. Back-to-back three-pointers from Tiffany Montagne and Samantha DeFreese saw RU lead by only two, 27-25, with under three minutes remaining in first stanza.  Rutgers, however, put a halt to Northeastern’s momentum, holding the Huskies scoreless over the final 2:47 of the half and entered the locker room ahead, 35-25.

       

      RU’s 10-point halftime lead was turned into a 20-point advantage by the mid-way point of the second half.  Rutgers used a 17-4 run with six different Scarlet Knights getting into the scoring mix, capped by senior Syessence Davis (Neptune, N.J.) drilling a three, for its largest lead of the night, a 64-36 edge with 8:25 to go.  

       

      Northeastern used three-point shooting and free throws to minimize its deficit to 14 by the game’s final horn. The Huskies, who shot 9-of-23 from three-point range on the night, went 2-of-5 from beyond the arc and 9-of-10 from the charity stripe in the game’s final five minutes.

       

      Montagne led the Huskies in registering a game-high 22 points.

       

      Rutgers returns to action facing its first road test of the season at LSU on Saturday, Nov. 22. Tipoff is set for 2 p.m. EST.

      PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - - A push at the end of regulation closed the Wilmington University men’s basketball team to within a pair but the University of the Sciences escaped the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference opener, 66-60, on Tuesday night in Bobby Morgan Arena.
      An 8-0 run at the end of the first half pushed the Devils (4-1, 1-0 CACC) to an 11 point lead heading into the halftime break and the Wildcats (0-4, 0-1 CACC) were forced to fight from behind for the entire second half.

      SUBJECT: Cal Poly Uses Dominant First Half Run To Race Past University of Delaware Men’s Basketball, 78-60
       
      DATE: November 21, 2014
       
      SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- Cal Poly closed the first half with a dominating run as the Mustangs opened up a huge halftime lead and went on to defeat the University of Delaware men’s basketball team, 78-60, in non-conference action Friday night at the Mott Athletics Center.
       
      The Mustangs, who improved to 2-1 on the year, led 20-16 at the 7:46 mark of the opening half following three free throws by Blue Hen sophomore guard Cazmon Hayes, but took over from there.
       
      Cal Poly scored the next seven points, and following a Kory Holden three-pointer, went on a 16-0 tear to extend the margin to 43-19 with 1:13 on the clock. Hayes finally ended the spurt with a three-point play, but Ridge Shipley buried a three-pointer and Brian Bennett beat the horn with a jumper to make it a 48-22 margin at the break. From there Delaware only got closer than 20 when Chivarsky Corbett drained a last minute three-pointer to cap the scoring.
       
      Shipley finished with a career-high 21 points for the Mustangs, who shot 18 of 33 (54.5%) during the opening half and knocked down 12 triples for the game. Bennett contributed 12 points for Cal Poly, David Nwaba chipped in with 10, and Maliik Love dished out a game-high eight assists.
       
      Hayes paced Delaware (0-2) for the second straight game with a career-high 22 points, as he knocked down three treys and finished 9 of 10 from the foul line. Holden reached double figures for the second consecutive contest with 12 points, while Corbett added nine on three shots from long range. Barnett Harris grabbed six rebounds as he led UD in boards for the second straight game.
       
      Delaware, playing without junior forward Marvin King-Davis who missed the contest with a recurring hamstring injury, utilized a nine-man rotation that featured five freshmen and four sophomores.
       
      “We ran into a buzzsaw in the first half; they didn’t miss many shots and we didn’t force them to miss,” said Blue Hen head coach Monté Ross. “But we learned a lot about our team in the second half. Our intensity was good during the second period, we just need to play with that intensity for 40 minutes. There are a lot of things we need to get better at; we have a bunch of young guys and they need to understand what it takes to succeed.”
       
      After shooting just 6 of 25 from the field during the opening 20 minutes, Delaware responded to score 38 second half points as the Blue Hens outscored Cal Poly by eight in the final stanza.
       
      The Mustangs increased the lead to 64-29 six minutes into the period but UD would not quit as the Blue Hens scored nine straight points, culminated by a Devonne Pinkard three-pointer, to close within 26 points with 11:39 left.
       
      Three minutes later Anthony Mosley scored seven consecutive Delaware points, burying a three-pointer from the top of the key to cut the margin to 69-45. However the Blue Hens would never seriously threaten as the Mustangs put the finishing touches on the victory.
       
      Game Notes:
      • Delaware fell to 2-7 in games in the state of California
      • Cal Poly avenged an 82-72 loss to the Blue Hens in Newark in Jan. 4, 2014
      • The game featured two teams that competed in the 2014 NCAA Tournament, as Cal Poly captured the Big West Tournament
      • Cal Poly held a 41-36 rebounding edge and committed just four turnovers
      • The margin was Delaware’s worst loss since a 19-point defeat at North Dakota State last December

      DATE: November 17, 2014
       
      LYNCHBURG, Va. -- The University of Delaware men’s basketball team held a two-point lead with three minutes remaining but missed its final seven shots from there as Liberty edged the Blue Hens, 61-55, Monday night at the Vines Center in UD’s season opener.
       
      Maurice Jeffers slammed home a follow dunk at the 3:03 mark to put Delaware in front 55-53, but Liberty’s Davis Andoh hit one free throw before burying a tough 18-foot jumper with 1:38 remaining to give the Flames the lead for good. The Blue Hens had the ball in the final minute, but Blue Hen freshman Chivarsky Corbett’s three-point attempt from the right corner was off the mark, while Tomasz Gielo hit two free throws at the other end to put Liberty up three with 23 seconds to go.
       
      Cazmon Hayes then misfired from deep, before Gielo connected on three more free throws to close the scoring.
       
      Liberty, which opened its season last Friday with a win over Division III Randolph College, improved to 2-0 on the young season. Delaware dropped its season opener for the ninth consecutive year.
       
      UD sophomore Cazmon Hayes scored a career-high 17 points to lead the Blue Hens, while freshman Kory Holden produced 13 points, six rebounds and five assists in his impressive Delaware debut. Marvin King-Davis was the third Blue Hen in double figures with 11 points, while Barnett Harris corralled a team-high nine rebounds.
       
      Delaware held a 47-37 rebounding advantage and attempted 14 more shots than Liberty, but the Blue Hens went just 3 of 24 from long range.
       
      Gielo posted a double-double for the Flames with 23 points and 10 rebounds, while Joe Retic added 11 points and Andoh chipped in with nine.
       
      The teams were knotted 30-30 at the half, but after falling behind by five, Delaware went back in front 38-37 when Holden found Eric Carter for a dunk. UD was still up a point at 40-39 after a Jeffers basket, but Liberty erupted for a 10-point run to take a 49-40 advantage with 8:57 to play.
       
      Delaware was still down seven a minute later but the Blue Hens responded with a 9-0 spurt of its own, going back in front 53-51 at the 4:49 mark on a Hayes layup. UD was back up two after the putback dunk by Jeffers, but Liberty scored the final eight points of the game to pull out the win.
       
      “When we got down nine I didn’t know what to expect, but for our kids to fight back the way they did, we’ll be alright,” said Blue Hen head coach Monté Ross. “We missed some shots at the end, but we got the shots we wanted. We got great looks from deep but they just didn’t go in - sometimes that happens. I’m also proud of the way we battled and fought on the offensive glass.”
       
      Delaware opened the game with an 8-4 lead as Holden scored six early points, but UD missed its next nine field goal attempts as Liberty used an 8-0 spurt to take a four-point advantage midway through the period.
       
      The Blue Hens responded and led by as many as seven points at 23-16 following a Corbett three-pointer, before the Flames scored four straight points to knot the contest at 27-27. Hayes then drilled a triple with 30 seconds on the clock, before Retic answered from deep for Liberty as the teams went into the break even at 30-30.
       
      “Once the ball went up I just played my game,” said Holden, who committed just two turnovers in 32 minutes of action. “We’re just going to keep working hard at practice; this is just the beginning.”
       
      Delaware returns to action on Friday with a 10 p.m. Eastern game at Cal Poly.
       
      Game Notes:
      • Liberty avenged a 77-64 loss to Delaware in Newark on Jan. 1, 2014
      • UD dropped to 6-3 all-time vs. Big South opponents
      • The Blue Hens opened the season on the road for the fifth straight year
