Terriers basketball team pulls away from Beavers down the stretch
Akanji, Murray help Thomas make up for Barnes' absence.

FARMINGTON — Thomas College doesn’t want or need to get used to the idea of life without Levi Barnes. But the Terriers don’t mind knowing that they can find ways to win when the leading scorer in the North Atlantic Conference isn’t in the lineup. Thomas shot 60 percent from the floor in the second half, including 8-for-14 from 3-point range, and withstood a late University of Maine-Farmington rally with a 14-2 run to end the game in a 74-60 victory at Dearborn Gymnasium on Saturday. With the win, the Terriers swept the season series with the Beavers and picked up their second win in three games without Barnes (23.7 ppg), a junior guard from Skowhegan who went down with an ankle injury Jan. 9 against New England College...
