Men's Basketball Makes Big Statement at 2014 D3hoops.com Classic


Las Vegas, NV - Husson University men's basketball traveled to Las Vegas to compete in the D3hoops.com Classic, organized by SportTours International. Facing a tough schedule against #16 Scranton and unbeaten Hampden-Sydney, the Eagles walked away with two thrilling victories and turned a lot of heads.

On Sunday, Husson took on nationally ranked #16 Scranton in the tournament opener. With double-digit scoring on the night from Trevon Butler (Waterbury, CT), Raheem Anderson (Miramar, FL), and Aaron Willis (New York, NY), the Eagles went up 10 points at halftime and sealed the game at 79-74.

Check out Coach Warren Caruso's interview following the win over Scranton:

The next night, Husson bounced back to face Hampden-Sydney. The Eagles' Butler scored a three-pointer in heavy traffic at the buzzer to deliver a 53-51 win. Butler finished with 16 points and 10 rebounds while Anderson added 19 points and five rebounds. Willis added six points and six rebounds.

Here is Butler's buzzer-beating three-pointer:

With these two victories, Husson heads into 2015 at 8-1. Anderson was named to the All-Tournament Team, and Butler was honored as the tournament's Most Outstanding Player.

The Eagles will return to Maine and face Colby on the road on January 6 at 7:00 PM.

Those wins, which extended an early-season winning streak to seven games, helped coach Warren Caruso’s team earn a No. 23 ranking in the D3hoops.com Division III men’s basketball poll.

Husson men beat Maine Maritime Academy; coach Caruso earns 400th win

The verdict was the 400th of Caruso’s 20-plus-year career as Husson’s head coach and extended his career record to 400-185 (.684). It also kept Husson (9-2, 5-0 NAC) atop the league standings. “It’s a program accomplishment,” Caruso said. “I say all the time that no one person in the program’s more important than the others. That starts with me and goes right down through our coaching staff and our players. It takes a lot of pieces of the puzzle to be successful and I’m one of those pieces.”...

Freshman Holmes earning his minutes at Husson
The Messalonskee graduate got his first career start Jan. 10 vs. Maine Maritime.

BANGOR — Jordan Holmes did not bring any expectations with him to Husson University, he just wanted to play basketball. Now, he is getting his chance. A graduate of Messalonskee High School, Holmes is a freshman on the Husson men’s basketball team (10-2, 8-0 North Atlantic Conference) and has recently worked his way into more playing time. “I didn’t really expect to get much time being a freshman, but of course me being a basketball player I wanted to play basketball,” Holmes said. “I worked my way in, just trying to get a role. I didn’t want to be the man, I wasn’t trying to score every time or anything, I just wanted to work to get that role on the team and be part of the game.”...
