Colby release :

ONGLEY NAMED ASSISTANT MEN'S BASKETBALL COACH

WATERVILLE, Maine --- Steve Ongley, who is co-director of his own basketball camp and has worked in Connecticut as an AAU and high school coach, is a new assistant coach for the Colby College men’s basketball program.

Ongley will work under Colby head coach Damien Strahorn and with assistant coach Greg Rosnick, who returns for his second year with the Mules.

“I’m excited Coach Ongley is joining our staff,” Strahorn said. “He has worked through the recruiting process on both sides, has a great way of connecting with people, and we know he will be a great addition to the program.”

Ongley graduated Magna Cum Laude from Southern Connecticut State University in 2012. He also was part of Phil Alpha Theta, the History Honors Society.

Ongley played college basketball at Colby-Sawyer College, where he helped the Chargers earn a Commonwealth Coast Conference title during the 2002-03 academic year. He was on the Athletic Academic Honor Roll during his time at Colby-Sawyer from 2002 to 2004.

Ongley was a head coach of various age groups in the Connecticut Gold AAU program from 2007 to 2012. The AAU program is run by current Cheshire Academy head coach Kevin Kehoe.

Before his appointment at Colby, Ongley worked as assistant varsity basketball coach at Daniel Hand High School and was head coach of the JV and freshman teams at different times from 2007 to 2014. Ongley was the New Haven County Boys Sub-Varsity Coach of the Year for Sportsmanship in 2014.

For the past four summers, Ongley has been the co-director of the Madison Hoop Dreams Summer Camp. He ran everyday operations of the camp, managed 30 counselors, and 90 to 100 campers each week.

During his time coaching at Daniel Hand, Ongley worked at Yale University in Academic Computing Services and also was a member of the Daniel Hand Special Education Department.

Roxbury Latin's Daley NESCAC Bound


Roxbury Latin School swingman Steven Daley made a verbal commitment to Colby College, it was announced earlier this week.

His commitment is pending acceptance of his early decision application.

A product of the Metro Boston AAU program, Daley is a six-foot-four small forward with a six-foot-nine wingspan. He owns athleticism to match his length and is consequently capable of both finishing plays above the rim in transition and providing a high volume rebounder on the wing...

RETURNERS SHOULD HELP COLBY MEN'S BASKETBALL THRIVE

WATERVILLE, Maine --- The Colby College men's basketball team took a leap from seven wins in the 2012-13 season to 14 victories last year. With nearly every player returning, head coach Damien Strahorn and the Mules aim to go higher in 2014-15.

Colby will get a test in the season opener against Purchase College on Saturday at 7 p.m. on the first day of the Eastern Connecticut Invitational. Purchase has won the Skyline Conference in four of the last five years and made the NCAA Division III Tournament twice in the past three seasons.

Colby has its top 10 scorers from last year back on the roster this season. The Mules, though, will have to overcome the loss of starter Patrick Stewart (Bangor, Maine) to an injury.

"With all the returners back there has been a lot of anticipation, and for the first time we have a core group of players that have been in our program for a few years," said Strahorn, a 2002 Colby graduate. "The returners have looked sharp early in the season and we believe they are ready to take us to new heights."

Junior center Chris Hudnut (Chevy Chase, Md.) blossomed into one of the best players in the New England Small College Athletic Conference last year. He earned All-NESCAC Second Team honors after leading the Mules in scoring (17.5), rebounding (8.4), and made free throws (90). Hudnut's biggest improvement may have been his passing, dishing off 63 assists to rank second on the team.

Senior guard Connor O'Neil (Freeport, Maine) and junior point guard Luke Westman (Newton, Mass.) will be Colby's co-captains. O'Neil averaged 7.2 points per game and was third on the team in made 3-point shots (34). Westman had a terrific assist-to-turnover ratio (107 assists, 61 turnovers), averaged 9.5 points per game, and led the Mules in field goal percentage (.652).

Junior forward Ryan Jann (Westford, Mass.) was second on the team in scoring (11.5) and second in made 3-point shots (37). He will likely have to rebound more with Stewart out. Stewart was third in scoring last year at 11.4 points and led the Mules in blocked shots (24).

Junior forward Sam Willson (Watertown, Conn.) has excelled at the sixth man role for the Mules the past two years. He could now start after averaging 9.1 points and leading Colby in free throw percentage (.859, 55-for-64).

"I'm guessing that Sam will fill Pat's spot," Strahorn said. "The challenge will be replacing not just Pat, but also the scoring impact off the bench that Sam has provided us."

The Mules have plenty of experience on the bench and added five newcomers. Senior guard Shane Rogers (Danbury, Conn.) got stronger as the year went on last season and averaged 5.6 points. Sophomore guard Myles Stephenson (New York, N.Y.) was the back-up point guard last year and should see increased minutes.

Senior guard Matt Mignon (Skillman, N.J.) and junior guards Michael Loginoff (San Mateo, Calif.) and John Gallego (Old Bethpage, N.Y.) are capable of playing key minutes for the Mules in the backcourt. Senior forward Jack Crampton (Madison, Conn.), who has been hampered by injury problems in his Colby career, averaged nearly three rebounds in limited minutes.

Wesleyan University transfer Joseph Connelly (Brookline, Mass.) is one of five new players. First-years Pat Dickert (Hatfield, Mass.), Sam Joaquin (Ashland, Mass.), Tony Karalekas (Naples, Fla.), and Carl-Philip Majgaard (Hillerod, Denmark) will battle for minutes. Majgaard is 6-foot-10 and both Joaquin and Karalekas are 6-5 or taller. Dickert and Connelly will play guard spots.

"There is definitely a learning curve for the new additions, but each of them bring some unique skills that will allow them to carve out a role," Strahorn said.

The Mules will have their home opener next Friday at 5 p.m. against Daniel Webster on the first day of the Colby Classic.

COLBY MEN'S BASKETBALL OPENS WITH VICTORY, IN TITLE GAME

WILLIMANTIC, Conn. --- The Colby College men's basketball team went 7-for-8 from the foul line in the final 1:49 of overtime to pull away for a hard-fought 73-70 victory over Purchase College on the opening day of the Eastern Connecticut Tournament on Saturday night.

The Mules (1-0 overall) will meet the host school in the championship game Sunday at 7 p.m. Eastern Connecticut posted an easy 78-50 win over Newbury College in the other game.

Purchase (0-1) took a 67-66 lead when Taylor Foster hit both of his free throws with 2:05 remaining.

The Mules started their trips to the free-throw line with Luke Westman hitting two with 1:49 to go to give Colby the lead for good at 68-67. After a missed 3-point shot by Purchase, Colby's Chris Hudnut hit one of his two free throws with 1:18 to go.

No one scored over the next minute, with Purchase turning the ball over twice and Colby missing on a 3-point shot. After a timeout, the Panthers fouled Shane Rogers with 13 seconds to go. Rogers hit the front of the rim and had the ball go in on his first free throw and calmly sank the second for a 71-67 lead.

The Mules made the mistake of fouling on a 3-point shot with seven seconds to go and Creig Graves made all three of the free throws to cut the margin to 71-70. Colby's Sam Willson made two more free throws with 5.7 seconds remaining for the final points. The Panthers missed on a 3-point shot from the left side at the buzzer.

After battling to a 32-32 tie at halftime, Colby came out sluggishly and scored just one basket in the first 6:11 of the second half. Purchase took control during that time and opened up a 41-34 lead. The Panthers had five leads of seven points, including a 53-46 margin with 7:13 to go.

Colby went on a 9-0 run to tie the game at 53-53 with 5:13 to play. Rogers had four points during the run and John Gallego nailed a 3-point shot.

The Panthers stayed focused and led 61-58 when Kayvon Reid scored with 1:46 to play. Connor O'Neil hit two free throws with 1:12 remaining to cut the margin to one point. After a Sam Willson steal, Luke Westman took a baseline drive and found O'Neil open for a 3-point shot from the right corner to put the Mules up 63-61 with 32 seconds left. Taylor Foster sent the game to overtime on a driving lay-up with 18 seconds left.

O'Neil, on a night when the Mules shot just 36 percent from the field, finished with 18 points on 6-for-11 shooting from the field and 4-for-9 from 3-point range. O'Neil also contributed six rebounds to help Colby win the battle of the boards by a 43-38 margin.

Hudnut added 14 points, including an 8-for-12 effort from the foul line, and six rebounds for Colby. Rogers had a solid game with 10 points on 3-for-5 shooting and a pair of steals. Luke Westman had a game-high six assists and three steals, Gallego nailed two 3-point shots for six points and had two assists. Tony Karalekas had five points and six rebounds in his debut for the Mules.

Foster led all scorers with 27 points and also had a game-high 11 rebounds for the Panthers. Purchase had just five assists on its 26 made field goals.

COLBY WOMEN'S BASKETBALL COASTS TO WIN OVER THOMAS

WATERVILLE, Maine --- The Colby College women's basketball team nailed 16 3-point shots and beat Thomas College for the 30th time in the series after coasting to a 92-28 non-conference win Tuesday night at Larry Mahaney Gymnasium.

The Mules stay unbeaten at 5-0 overall heading into a non-conference home game with Bates College this Sunday at 4 p.m. Bates took an impressive win at home against Southern Maine on Tuesday.

The Mules had five players in double figures, including junior Carylanne Wolfington with a game-high 19 points on 8-for-14 shooting from the field and 3-for-6 from 3-point range.

Caitlyn Nolan, the NESCAC Player of the Week for last week, went 5-for-5 from the foul line and 3-for-6 from long range to score 18 points. MaryKate Caverly hit her first six shots of the game, was 4-for-5 on the 3-point shot, and dished five assists. Brooke Chandor nailed four 3-point shots on the way to 12 points and Kate Parsons was 2-for-2 on treys for 10 points. Mia Diplock had six assists and six rebounds, while first-year Amanda Loya finished with five points, five rebounds, and two assists.

Colby shot 44.4 percent from 3-point range (16-for-36) and 50 percent on field goals (34-for-68). The Mules committed just seven turnovers and forced 21 miscues by Thomas (0-4 overall).

The Mules, who were up 47-9 at halftime, were one 3-point field goal away from tying the team record of 17 set by the 2012-13 team against Maine-Farmington. Colby improved to 30-2 all-time against the Terriers.
