BRUNSWICK, Maine - Aaron Willis scored a game-high 27 points to lead the Husson University men's basketball team to its first-ever win over Bowdoin on Monday evening, 72-61.

Husson expanded their lead to 13 early in the second half, 44-31, but Bowdoin - sparked by plays on both ends of the court by Swords, scored the next 13 points to deadlock the contest at 44-44 with 11:29 to go.

The Eagles would not go away, however, and responded wiht a 16-7 surge that gave the visitors a nine-point lead, 60-51, with 2:30 to play.

Hausman Named National USBWA National Player of the Week

BRUNSWICK, Maine - Bowdoin junior Lucas Hausman (Westport, Conn.) has been named the Division III Player of the Week by the United States Basketball Writers Association.

Also named the NESCAC Player of the Week the last two weeks, Hausman is the first Bowdoin men's basketball player to collect the USBWA's honor.

Hausman averaged 30.0 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists to lead Bowdoin to a 2-0 week and the second-seed (highest finish in program history) in the upcoming New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Tournament. He shot 68.4 percent (26-of-38) from the field, 57.1 percent (4-of-7) from three-point range and 80 percent (4-of-5) from the foul line.

On Friday, in a 98-70 win over Bates, Hausman tied the Polar Bears' school record with 44 points on 20-of-25 shooting from the field and 4-of-4 from three-point range while adding four rebounds and four assists. His 20 made field goals were also a program record. Hausman followed that up with a game-best 16 points (6-of-13 FG, 4-of-4 FT) in a 57-54 victory against Tufts University on Saturday. He added seven rebounds and a steal for Bowdoin in the victory.

The Polar Bears (17-8) will return to action on Saturday when they host Williams at 2:00 p.m. in a NESCAC Quarterfinal game at Morrell Gymnasium.

NESCAC MBB Quarterfinal: Bowdoin 87, Williams 74

BRUNSWICK, Maine - Lucas Hausman scored 25 of his game-high 37 points in the second half to lead the Bowdoin College men’s basketball team to a 87-74 win over Williams in the quarterfinals of the New England Small College Athletic Conference tournament Saturday at Morrell Gymnasium.

The second-seeded Polar Bears improve to 18-7 and advance to next Saturday’s semifinals against Amherst College at Trinity. The other semifinal will feature Wesleyan and the host Bantams. Williams ends it season with a record of 15-10.

Hausman was outstanding in the second half, and finished with a game-high 37 points, two shy of the NESCAC Tournament record. John Swords tied a tournament record with a 10-10 performance from the field, scoring 23 points to go with 13 rebounds and three blocks. Bryan Hurley also saw double figures with 12 points, seven assists, six rebounds and four assists.

Hayden Rooke-Ley finished with a team-high 28 points for the Ephs, knocking down seven three-pointers. Ryan Kilcullen had 16 points while Mike Greenman added 12 for Williams. Daniel Wohl had eight points, 10 rebounds and seven assists for the Ephs.

Williams sprinted to a halftime lead thanks to a three-point barrage, headed by Rooke-Ley, who knocked down six first-half trifecta. John Swords kept Bowdoin within shouting distance thanks to his work around the basket. The Polar Bear center scored 16 points on perfect 8-8 shooting, including five dunks. But the Ephs were able to claim a seven-point lead, 44-37, thanks to 21 points from Rooke-Ley at the break.

Bowdoin jumped right back into the contest out of the break, using a 10-0 run out of the break, sparked by six points from Hausman, and took the lead on a Swords jumper, 45-44, with 17:30 left in the game. The teams traded buckets for the next four minutes and as the clock ran under 13 minutes to play the squads were deadlocked at 56-56.

Hausman hit a lay-in to spark a decisive 11-0 run for the Polar Bears, which ended on a hoop-and-harm from Hurley to give the hosts a 67-56 lead with 7:15 to go. The Bowdoin defense clamped down, holding Williams scoreless for over six minutes of game time to key the surge. Williams was able to cut the lead to six points on two occasions with under three minutes to play, but Bowdoin answered with buckets each time to keep the Ephs at bay.

Bowdoin finished at 50.9% shooting for the contest after a red-hot 59% from the field in the second period. Williams ended at 39% for the contest. The Polar Bears held a dominating 41-29 edge on the glass and took advantage of foul trouble for the Ephs, connecting on 24-32 from the free throw line.

Lucas Hausman Wins Third Straight NESCAC Player of the Week Honor

BRUNSWICK, Maine - Bowdoin junior Lucas Hausman (Westport, Conn.) has been named New England Small College Athletic Conference Player of the Week for the third consecutive time.

It is the first time in NESCAC history that a player has claimed three straight conference player of the week awards in men's basketball. The honor was well deserved for the Polar Bear guard, however, as he continued his recent stretch of torrid play to help Bowdoin advance to the NESCAC Semifinals.

Hausman scored 25 of his game-high 37 points in the second half as the Bowdoin rallied from a seven-point halftime deficit to defeat Williams in the NESCAC Quarterfinals Saturday. He was 7-for-9 from the field in second half, almost singlehandedly matching Williams’ second-half score (30-25), gave Bowdoin the lead for good with under 12 minutes remaining and scored seven points in a decisive 11-0 run for the Polar Bears. Hausman was two points shy of tying the NESCAC Championship single-game scoring mark.

Hausman leads the NESCAC at 20.6 points per game this winter and is averaging 27.8 points per game in his last six contests.

The Polar Bears will return to action Saturday as they face Amherst in the NESCAC Semifinals at Trinity. Tip-off is scheduled for 4:00 p.m.

NESCAC Men's Basketball Championship Preview

BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Bowdoin College men's basketball team will return to the NESCAC semifinals for the first time since 2009 when they play Amherst on Saturday at Trinity College.

Video Preview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEvY8mbv2kA

The opening game of Saturday's semifinal doubleheader will feature Trinity and sixth-seeded Wesleyan at 2:00 p.m. That game will be followed by a match-up between second-seeded Bowdoin and fifth-seeded Amherst at 4:00 p.m. Semifinal winners will square off in the conference final on Sunday at noon with an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament at stake. Tickets for each day will be $5 for adults and $2 for students. Streaming video will be available for all three games through the Northeast Sports Network (NSN) at nsnsports.net/NESCAC. Live statistics will also be available.

Bowdoin (18-7, 7-3 NESCAC) and Amherst (19-6, 6-4 NESCAC) will meet for the fifth time in tournament history. The Polar Bears erased a seven-point halftime deficit to defeat seventh-seeded Williams, 87-74, in the quarterfinal round. Junior Lucas Hausman (Westport, Conn.) continued his torrid scoring streak, recording 25 of his game-high 37 points in the second half to help Bowdoin reach the semifinals for the first time since 2009 and third time overall. He leads the NESCAC in scoring at 20.6 points per game, and has averaged 27.8 points over the last six games. Senior John Swords (Sudbury, Mass.) also played a critical role in Saturday’s contest, as he poured in 16 of his 23 points in the opening frame to keep the Polar Bears within striking distance. He finished the game with 23 points on 10-of-10 shooting, 13 rebounds, four assists and three steals. Swords, the reigning NESCAC Defensive Player of the Year, has complimented Hausman on the inside, averaging nearly a double-double at 12.8 points and 9.9 boards per game. The Polar Bears, who are pursuing their first NESCAC title, have one of the most efficient offenses in the NESCAC, shooting a league-best 46.9 percent from the floor and 78.3 percent from the charity stripe.

Amherst heads to Hartford as the three-time defending NESCAC Champion, and hopes to win its conference-high eighth league crown following a 92-66 win over Tufts in the quarterfinal round. Junior Connor Green (Bedford, N.H.) helped the Jeffs avenge their regular-season loss (80-53) to Tufts by shooting 6-of-8 from the long range en route to a game-high 29 points, which was well above his season average of 17.2 points. Sophomore David George (Philadelphia, Pa.) contributed a double-double with 19 points and 10 rebounds in the winning effort. The Jeff offense continues to click at a high rate, ranking second in scoring offense at 75.8 points per game. First-year Johnny McCarthy (Medfield, Mass.) joins Green and George in double figures, averaging 10.6 points per contest. McCarthy also fills up the stat sheet with 6.5 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 1.0 blocks per game.

In four NESCAC postseason meetings, Amherst owns a 3-1 advantage, but Bowdoin won the most recent matchup versus the Jeffs when it prevailed 65-64 in the 2008 semifinals. During the regular season, Amherst defeated the Polar Bears by the score of 81-66 on January 31.
