COLBY MEN'S BASKETBALL WINS CONSOLATION GAME

BOSTON, Mass. --- The Colby College men's basketball team moved to 5-2 overall after pulling away for an 86-66 win over College of St. Joseph (Vt.) in the consolation game of the University of Massachusetts at Boston Harbor Invitational on Saturday.

The Mules head into a tough week of play, with non-conference road games at Bates College on Tuesday at 7 p.m. and Bowdoin College next Saturday at 4 p.m. in the last game of the semester.

Luke Westman was 6-for-8 from the field for 17 points and four assists for the Mules. Westman, a junior point guard, is shooting a stunning 70 percent from the field (35-for-50) in the first seven games.

Connor O'Neil added 13 points, including all three of his 3-point field goals. Chris Hudnut, who made the all-tournament team, got off to a slow start and still managed 13 points, seven rebounds, and four assists. Sam Willson had a game-high eight rebounds and added 11 points, while Joseph Connelly was 7-for-8 from the foul line and scored 10 for the Mules. Shane Rogers was 3-for-4 from the field for eight points and Ryan Jann pulled down seven rebounds.

KaShean Alston led College of St. Joseph with 17 points and seven rebounds.

Colby shot 49 percent (27-for-55) from the field, 45.5 percent from 3-point range (10-for-22), and had a big edge in free-throw shooting with an 81.5 percent (22-for-27) effort. The Mules also had a 45-34 advantage on the boards and held St. Joseph to 15 percent shooting (5-for-33) from 3-point range.

The Mules only led 18-16 after nine minutes of play, but Colby steadily pulled away in the final 11 minutes to take a 44-30 margin to halftime.

Colby stayed in control in the second half, opening up a lead of 25 points when Connelly sank two free throws for a 77-52 margin with 7:01 to play. St. Joseph was no closer than 18 points the rest of the way.

COLBY FALLS IN TOUGH BATTLE WITH BATES

LEWISTON, Maine --- The Colby College men's basketball team received another big performance out of junior center Chris Hudnut, but Bates College got off to quick start and never trailed in a 76-70 non-conference win over the Mules on Tuesday night.

The Mules dropped to 5-3 overall, while Bates stayed unbeaten at 6-0.

Bates never led by more than 13 points, but Colby could get no closer than three points over the final 34 minutes of the game.

Hudnut scored a game-high 26 points with eight rebounds and five assists for Colby. Luke Westman added 16 points and four assists, and Connor O'Neil contributed 10 points and three steals. Joseph Connelly and Ryan Jann both had eight points.

Mike Boornazian scored a team-high 18 points for Bates, while Marcus Delpeche went for 14 points, 11 reboundsm, six blocked shots, and five assists. Graham Safford added 11 points and six boards.

The Bobcats outshot the Mules from the field in the first half, 44.4 to 35.7 percent, en route to a 37-28 halftime lead. But the Mules rebounded by shooting 55.6 percent in the second period, while Bates remained at 44.4 percent. Bates shot 25-28 from the free-throw line (89.3 percent), while Colby made 14-20 (70 percent).

Bates darted out to a 6-0 lead and forced a Mule timeout. Colby's Ryan Jann canned a three to cut it to 10-8 with 14:15 to go, but Bates' Josh Britten came off the bench to drain a three of his own on his first touch of the game to regain the momentum.

Colby's Joseph Connelly scored eight points in a row for the Mules, with two 3-pointers and a pair of free throws, that cut it to 25-18. A jumper by Jann closed the gap to 25-20 with 6:16 left in the period, but Boornazian bumped the lead to eight with a three, at 28-20. Boornazian and Malcolm Delpeche made four straight free throws for a 35-24 lead before Colby cut the deficit in the closing minute with baskets by Westman and Hudnut.

Marcus Delpeche scored six points in the first three minutes of the second half, including a layup on a Malcolm Delpeche assist and a tip-dunk on a missed layup by Safford, making it 45-34 with 17:14 left. Colby then scored eight unanswered points, with Westman driving for back-to-back lay-ups, followed by a Hudnut jumper, and a pair of free throws by O'Neil to close the deficit to its lowest point of the period at 45-42 with 14:56 to go.

Britten came off the bench and again made a clutch three almost immediately, giving Bates some breathing room at 48-42. Both teams traded misses before Hudnut kicked out to O'Neil for another three to close it to three again, at 48-45.

From the 12:43 to the 5:51 mark of the period, only Hudnut managed to score for Colby. His seven points in that time kept the Mules within striking distance during that time, but Bates meanwhile scored 16 points. Boornazian scored six points in the 16-7 run that made it 64-52 in Bates' favor with 6:00 left to play.

A layup by Marcus Delpeche made it 70-60 Bates with 2:32 left, but Colby scored seven straight in a final run at the lead, capped by a 25-foot 3-pointer by Jann that closed the gap to 70-67 with 1:02 to go. Bates made four of six free throws in the last 45 seconds, good enough to hang on to the lead, even though O'Neil made one last three on a Hudnut assist with five seconds to go.

JANN HAS BIG DAY IN COLBY'S VICTORY OVER BOWDOIN

BRUNSWICK, Maine --- Ryan Jann finished with 14 points, nine rebounds, and four assists to help the Colby College men's basketball team break an eight-game losing streak to Bowdoin College in a 61-48 non-conference victory Saturday.

The Mules improve to 6-3 overall, while the Polar Bears have dropped three straight games and are 4-3.

Jann was 2-for-5 on 3-point attempts and added eight defensive rebounds.
Chris Hudnut added 10 points and 10 rebounds. Luke Westman pitched in 10 points, four assists, and four steals for the Mules. Connor O'Neil finished with seven points, while John Gallego and Joseph Connelly both had six points.

Bowdoin also had a trio in double digits, led by 12 points and 12 rebounds from John Swords. Lucas Hausman also had 12 points and Keegan Pieri posted 11 points and seven boards.

A back-and-forth first half saw the Polar Bears claim a 26-25 lead as Blake Gordon buried a free throw with no time on the clock. Swords scored four straight points to open the second half as Bowdoin extended its lead to 30-25 with under 17 minutes to play.

O'Neil answered with five straight points for the Mules, sparking a 10-1 surge that would give Colby the lead for good, 35-31, with 13:30 to go. Bowdoin closed to within a single point (38-37) following a Swords jumper with 10:30 to go. But the Mules quickly replied with a 3-pointer from John Gallego, keying a decisive 16-3 run that extended Colby's lead to 54-40 with three minutes remaining.

The Mules hit 11 of 13 free throws down the stretch to seal the victory and held Bowdoin to just 2-15 shooting (13.3 percent) from 3-point range. Neither team shot over 40 percent for the game and Bowdoin held a slim 36-35 edge in rebounding. Colby took advantage of a limited Polar Bear bench, however, getting 19 points from its substitutes compared to just three points for Bowdoin.

Colby will not play again until Dec. 31 at Babson (1:00 p.m.). The teams will match up again on January 24 for the NESCAC contest in Waterville.

Men's basketball plays well in loss at No. 17 Babson

MULES HAVE STRONG GAME IN LOSS TO 17TH-RANKED BABSON

BABSON PARK, Mass. --- The Colby College men's basketball team nearly rang in the New Year with a big upset over 17th-ranked Babson College, taking a six-point halftime lead before the Beavers used a big scoring run in the first 10 minutes of the second half on the way to a 72-65 victory Wednesday.

The Mules drop to 6-4 overall heading into Saturday's 3 p.m. game at University of Maine at Farmington. Babson (9-1 overall) already owns victories this year against Amherst (68-49), Bowdoin (68-48), and Tufts (68-63). The Beavers' lone loss was 54-51 at home to Bates.

How good has Babson been this season? The Mules shot 59 percent (23-for-39) from the field, 50 percent (7-for-14) from 3-point range, and a respectable 75 percent (12-for-16) from the foul line and still lost by seven points.

The big difference in the game came at the free-throw line, with Babson connecting on 87 percent (20-for-23) of its shots.

Colby point guard Luke Westman shot 7-for-8 from the field to lead the Mules in scoring (18) and assists (5). Chris Hudnut was 6-for-9 from the field for 17 points, Ryan Jann nailed four of his five 3-point shots for 15 points, and Sam Willson added 10 points.

Joey Flannery led all scorers with 28 points, including a 12-for-13 effort from the foul line, for Babson. John Wickey finished with 11 points and 10 rebounds.

The Mules, with just a few practices to get ready for this game after a long break, trailed 17-7 after Sam Bohmiller nailed a 3-point shot for Babson with 9:50 left in the first half.

Colby, though, chipped away at the lead and tied the contest at 22-22 when Connor O'Neil nailed a 3-pointer with 4:05 left to halftime. With the score 26-26, Jann hit a three with 1:18 remaining and Willson followed with another 3-point shot with 31 seconds left for a 32-26 Colby lead at the break.

Hudnut hit one of his two free throws just 14 seconds into the second half for a 33-26 lead. The Beavers took over after that, using a 26-6 run over next 8:33 to take a 52-39 lead.

Colby stayed within 10 points for much of the final 10 minutes, but got no closer than six at 68-62 with 42 seconds to go.

COLBY MEN'S BASKETBALL BEATS CAMELS, 2-0 IN NESCAC

NEW LONDON, Conn. — Junior center Chris Hudnut poured in a game-high 24 points to lead the Colby College men’s basketball team to a 79-70 victory at Connecticut College on Saturday.

The Mules (9-5 overall) are 2-0 in the conference after a terrific weekend in Connecticut. Colby beat Wesleyan University on Friday night. The Camels dropped to 7-6 overall and 0-2 in the league.

Hudnut was 6-for-8 from the field and a perfect 12-for-12 from the foul line. He had seven rebounds and two steals in the win.

Junior guard Luke Westman chipped in with 21 points, five boards and four assists, connecting on 5-of-6 shots from the field, and 11-of-12 shots at the foul line. Ryan Jann finished with 14 points, while junior Sam Willson reached double digits with 10 points and nine rebounds.

Connecticut College first-year Lee Messier finished with a team-best 19 points and had six rebounds, three assists and a pair of steals. Messier netted 17 of his 19 points in the second half. Isaiah Robinson added 13 points and three assists and was 3-for-6 from the field and 7-for-8 at the line.

Colby built a 32-27 lead after Westman converted a pair of free throws with 5:12 remaining. But the Camels ended the half with an 8-1 run. Austin Brown capped the rally when he canned a 16-footer with 1:06 remaining and the Camels carried a 35-33 lead into the break.

Brown continued to spark the Camels in the second half as the hosts opened the half with a 10-4 run. Messier buried a three during the scoring surge before Brown capped the rally with a free throw to make it a 45-37 game with 17:23 remaining.

Colby responded and the visitors scored the next seven points to pull within one and regained a 51-48 lead when Jann nailed a three with 13:02 remaining.

Later on in the half with 7:00 remaining, Hudnut collected a steal and went in for a jam on a fast break to push the Mules lead to 63-56.

But the Camels would not go away and Brown knocked down another jumper to trim the deficit to five, Colin Pascoe corralled an offensive board and assisted Messier for a trey from the middle of the arch that pulled the Camels to within 63-61 with 4:33 remaining.

Hudnut scored the next four points to push the lead back to 67-61. But McKinley answered for the Camels with a three from the right side with 1:47 to play that made it a one possession game in a 67-64 contest.

Colby converted its next four free throws and the Camels could not get any closer.

HUDNUT REACHES 1,000 POINTS TO HELP COLBY BEAT HAMILTON

WATERVILLE, Maine --- Chris Hudnut was at his dominating best with 26 points and went over 1,000 career points to help the Colby College men's basketball team to a 75-70 win over Hamilton College in NESCAC play Friday night.

Colby moved to 10-5 overall and remains in first place in the league with a 3-0 record. Hamilton dropped to 10-5 overall and 0-3 in the conference.

Hudnut became the 36th player in the illustrious history of Colby men's basketball to reach 1,000 career points. He moved into 34th all-time with 1,006 points. Hudnut was 9-for-16 from the field, 8-for-9 from the foul line, pulled down a game-high 16 rebounds, and dished four assists. He is averaging 20.3 points and 10.2 rebounds.

Ryan Jann and Luke Westman each had 12 points for the Mules. Jann also had eight rebounds, while Westman was 4-for-4 from the field, added four assists, and three blocked shots. Westman ranks second in the country in field goal percentage.

Sam Willson hit some key free throws in the closing minutes and had nine points and teammate Connor O'Neil added eight for Colby.

Colby was 19-for-27 from the foul line and had a huge advantage over Hamilton (4-for-6). The Continentals stayed in the game by forcing 18 Colby turnovers and committed just 10 of their own.

Joseph Lin had 13 points and nine assists in the first half and finished with a team-high 23 points and 10 assists for Hamilton. Ajani Santos and Joe Pucci each had 10 points, while Jack Donnelly finished with nine.

The Mules led 60-49 with 8:13 left in the game, but Hamilton was pesky and stayed in the game. Donnelly nailed a 3-point shot with 3:35 to play to cut the margin to 62-59.

Hudnut scored five straight points to push the margin to 67-59 with 2:15 to go, but the Continentals refused to give up. Hamilton scored seven straight points - the last two on a layup by Lin with 1:12 to go - to make it 67-66.

Hamilton hurts its own cause by committing a foul and then getting a technical foul with 41 seconds to play. Hudnut nailed both free throws on the technical and Westman hit 1-for-2 to make it 70-66.

Lin quickly scored with 33 seconds left for a 70-68 Colby lead. Willson went 1-for-2 from the foul line with 27 seconds left for a 71-68 margin.
