The 2013-14 Eagles started the season on a 13-game winning streak (8-0 in the league) and finished the season 26-3 (17-1 NAC).

Caruso earned NAC Coach of the Year honors, while Trevon Butler grabbed Player of the Year and First Team All-Conference honors and Phil Leighton grabbed Second Team All-Conference Honors. Following their North Atlantic Conference Championship, the Eagles faced Eastern Connecticut State in the First Round of the NCAA DIII Tournament.

Husson ranked in the top 50 among DIII schools in the nation in 11 statistical categories including a DIII-leading 17.8 point scoring margin.

Newcomers looking to make an early impact on the season include forward Matt Talbot (Portland, ME) and guards David Diaz (Miami, FL) and Mitch Worcester (Washburn, ME). Husson will feature a balanced attack and once again look to be deep off the bench.

The Eagles will take on Bowdoin, Hamdpen-Sydney, and Scranton to prepare for a tough conference schedule. Over the winter break, Husson will travel to Las Vegas to compete in the D3hoops.com Classic.

Castleton State College was voted second with 79 points and two first place votes, while Colby-Sawyer College came in a close third with 78 points, Lyndon State College claimed fourth with 62 points and the University of Maine at Farmington was selected fifth after receiving 55 points to round out the top billing.

Husson Downs Nichols, 81-73

Dudley, MA – Husson University men's basketball improved to 2-1 on Monday night as they defeated Nichols College, 81-73, in non-conference men's basketball action Monday night at the Nichols Athletic Center.

Junior Trevon Butler (Waterbury, CT) scored a game-high 24 points to go along with nine rebounds, four assists, and three steals for the Eagles. He also canned 11-of-14 from the charity stripe. Sophomore Raheem Anderson (Everglades, FL) filled the stat sheet with 18 points, six rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 31 minutes off the bench, as Husson shot 52 percent from the field in the second half (11-of-21) and outscored the Bison 47-37 over the final 20 minutes.

Junior Irving Eggleston (East Lyme, Conn.) scored a team-high 23 points for Nichols. The Bison also saw Eggleston notch five of the Bison's 11 steals on the evening. Junior Christian Horton (Rutland, Mass.) went for 10 points, five rebounds, two steals and two assists.

Nichols used an 18-3 run to take a 20-10 lead midway through the first half. Eggleston netted six points while Langadas and Horton each had four to help the Bison build a double-digit lead. Husson closed the half on a 24-16 run as Butler finished the stanza with nine points and five boards while first year Matt Talbot (Portland, ME) had eight. Each team shot over 40 percent from the field, but the Bison struggled from both the three-point arc (1-of-11) and the free throw line (3-of-10).

The Eagles took their first lead since the opening minutes of the contest when senior Jacob Moore (Hampden, ME) converted a layup at 16:27 of the second half. Nichols answered with a three from Langadas, a layup from senior Joe Gallant (Salem, N.H.), and a layup from Horton to regain a four-point lead at 46-42. Husson went ahead for good four minutes later when Talbot's layup gave it a 49-48 lead. The lead grew to nine courtesy of a pair of free throws from Moore with 5:06 to go before two more from Anderson at 2:58 made it an 11-point Eagles lead (71-60).

Husson outrebounded the Bison 38-31 and overcame 23 turnovers. The Eagles bench scored 35 of their 81 points, led by Anderson's 18 and Talbot with 11. Nichols shot 45 percent overall (29-of-64) but missed 10 of its 22 free throw attempts and 20 of its 23 three-pointers.

The Bison (2-3) head to Roger Williams next week to open Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) play at 7:30 p.m. on December 3. Husson will open North Atlantic Conference play as the team travels to Thomas College on Tuesday, December 2, at 7:30 p.m.
