O'Neil is NESCAC Bound

Phillips Exeter Academy post-grad Hugh ONeil made a verbal commitment to Bowdoin last week, pending acceptance of his application. A graduate of Lexington High School in the MIAA, O’Neil is also a product of the Middlesex Magic and one of the most improved players in the program according to program director Michael Crotty Jr. “Hugh has made more strides in the last year and a half than almost any player I have ever coached,” Crotty said. “He was determined to play basketball at a high academic school, so he took a post-graduate year at Exeter and worked relentlessly all spring and summer to develop his game.”...

Bowdoin 75, Saint Joseph's 69

STANDISH, Maine – The Bowdoin College men's basketball team shot 87% (21-24) from the free throw line to remain unbeaten in a 75-69 victory over Saint Joseph's College on Saturday afternoon.

The Polar Bears (3-0) were led by 19 points from Lucas Hausman. Matt Palecki recorded 13 points and five caroms, John Swords posted a double-double with 11 points and 11 boards, and Keegan Pieri came off the bench to score 11 with six rebounds. Saint Joseph's senior guard Steve Simonds netted a game-high 29 points with eight rebounds and was 7-14 from three-point distance in a losing effort.

The Polar Bears managed to hold off a persistent Saint Joseph’s team by making nine of 10 shots from the free throw line in the closing 30 seconds. The Monks led for the better part of the first half and, with the help of seven three-pointers, owned a 23-17 cushion after junior Jerome Diggs connected on his only trifecta of the day with 8:19 before the break.

The Polar Bears responded with a 10-0 run, with Pieri and Hausman scoring five points apiece, over the following 2:16 minutes to secure a 27-23 lead. Saint Joseph’s cut the deficit down to 31-30 after Simonds drained a three-pointer at the 3:52 mark, but Bowdoin closed out the first half with an 8-2 outburst and carried a 39-32 advantage going into intermission.

Trailing 55-46 with 10:17 remaining, Saint Joseph’s mounted a 13-4 run, an offensive surge closed out with a three-point play from Zach Blodgett less than six minutes later. Bowdoin senior John Swords answered in kind with a three-point play of his own on the Polar Bears’ subsequent trip down the floor and SJC junior guard Craig Luschenat dropped a three-pointer to knot the contest yet again, 62-62, with 2:55 left.

Bowdoin countered with five unanswered points with buckets Matt Palecki and Swords and a Bryan Hurley free throw to stake a 67-62 cushion with 32 seconds on the clock. Bowdoin went 6-6 from the stripe over the final seconds to seal the win.

Saint Joseph’s shot 44.6% (25-56) overall, 44.4% (16-36) from three-point land, and 50% (3-6) from the FT line while Bowdoin shot 44.2% (23-52) from the floor, 36.4% (8-22) from long distance, and 87.5% (21-24) from the charity stripe in the triumph.

Bates 71, Bowdoin 51

LEWISTON, Maine - The Bates College men's basketball team pulled away in the second half to defeat Bowdoin, 71-51, in a non-conference game at Alumni Gym on Thursday evening.

The Polar Bears drop their second straight contest and fall to 4-2 on the season. Bates improves to 7-0 on the year by snapping a four-game losing streak to Bowdoin.

Bates held a slim 32-30 lead at halftime thanks to a lay-up at the buzzer by Justin Zukowski. Bowdoin regained the lead early in the second half thanks to four consecutive points by Keegan Pieri, 34-32, but that would prove to be the last lead of the game for the Polar Bears. Bates rolled off a quick 10-1 spurt, sparked by 8 points from Billy Selmon, to take a 42-35 edge.

Bowdoin was able to stay within shouting distance until late, when the Polar Bears went ice cold from the field, hitting just one field goal over a six-minute span as Bates went on a 19-1 run to put the contest out of reach.

Bates connected on 45% of its shots for the game, including 9-21 from three-point range. Bowdoin shot 40% but only connected on 4-15 from long distance.
