WALTHAM, Mass. -- Billy Selmon hit the go-ahead 3-pointer on a dish from Graham Safford with 27 seconds left in the game, and the Bates men's basketball team hung on to complete an 81-78 comeback win over Nichols on Saturday, the first day of the season-opening Babson Invitational.

Junior Mike Boornazian (Portland, Conn.) scored a game-high 25 points for the Bobcats (1-0), while Safford (Hampden, Maine; 22 points, 10 rebounds, 7 assists) flirted with a triple-double and sophomore Marcus Delpeche added a 14-point, 11-rebound double-double. Sophomore big men Malcolm Delpeche (Wilmington, Del.) and Max Eaton (St. Petersburg, Fla.) fouled out in a mere eight and 12 minutes played, respectively.

First-year guard Justin Zukowski (Portland, Maine) drained two 3-pointers in a key 8-2 run midway through the second half, which tied the game up at 60-60 with 8:32 left in the game.

The Bobcats shot 50 percent from the floor and held the Bison (0-1) to 40.3 percent shooting.

Bates led 19-17 with 12:12 left in the first half before Nichols ripped off 15 points in a row and extended that into a 21-4 run for a 38-23 lead with 5:47 left in the half. From there it was a long, slow climb back for the Bobcats. Following a three by Nichols' Irving Eggleston, which gave Nichols a 51-37 lead 1:17 into the second half, a three-point play by Selmon cut it to 11. A three by Boornazian on a Safford assist cut it to 53-45 with 14:28 to go, and after a long dry spell for both teams, Safford made a jumper and converted a three-point play to clip the Bison's lead to 55-52 with 10:43 left. Nichols bumped it back to 58-52, but Zukowski drained his first college basket, a three from Safford. Selmon made a steal at the other end and was fouled, then hit his free throws to cut the margin to one at 58-57. Zukowski then answered a Taylor Sarette tip-in with a second three to tie the game at 60-60 with 8:32 to go.

Nichols rebounded with an 11-2 run to take a 71-64 lead with 4:02 to go, with seven of those points coming from the free-throw line. Boornazian drained another three, but Gustave Koumare answered with a three.

Nichols still had a seven-point lead with 2:34 to go after two foul shots by Koumare. Boornazian went coast-to-coast for a layup to cut it to 78-73, then rebounded a Nichols miss and fed Safford for a layup in transition to make it 78-75 Nichols with 2:11 to go.

Junior Mike Newton (Chapel Hill, N.C.) made 1-of-2 foul shots for Bates and Nichols' Matt Langadas missed a pair at the other end. The teams traded misses before Safford drove and kicked out to Selmon (Atlanta, Ga.) on the right wing for a three that gave Bates a 79-78 lead with 27 seconds left.

Langadas missed another pair of free throws on Nichols' next possession; Nichols was forced to foul then, and Safford made both of his at the other end for the final score of 81-78.

Koumare led the Bison with 24 points, five rebounds and five assists. Eggleston scored 12 and Langadas and Sarette added 11 apiece.

Selmon finished the game with eight points and two steals. Boornazian made 10-of-15 shots from the field, and also grabbed seven rebounds and passed out five assists. Safford also had a game-high three steals.

Bates takes on host Babson on Sunday at 7pm in the tournament championship game.

Bates Rallies Past No. 23 Men's Hoops, 54-51, In Babson Invitational Tournament Title Game

BABSON PARK, Mass.—Senior Graham Safford (Hampden, Maine) scored 21 of 23 points in the second half, including the go-ahead three pointer with 1.8 seconds to go, as visiting Bates College knocked off 23rd-ranked Babson College, 54-51, to win the 29th Babson Invitational Tournament championship on Sunday night at Staake Gymnasium.

With the victory, Bates improves to 2-0 on the year, while Babson drops to 1-1.

Safford, who garnered tournament MVP honors, went 8-for-10 from the field after halftime and buried four three pointers. Junior Mike Boornazian (Portland, Conn.) added 14 points and seven boards for the Bobcats.

Senior John Wickey (Manchester, N.H.) led all players with a season-high 25 points on 10-of-15 shooting. Sophomore Sam Bohmiller (Franklin, Mass.) came off the bench to score eight points, and classmate Joey Flannery (Acton, Mass.) added seven points and game highs of nine rebounds and four assists.

Bates scored the first six points of the game, but the Green and White countered with a 14-0 run, capped by a three-point play by Wickey, to go ahead 14-6 at the 12:27 mark. Wickey followed a Bohmiller three pointer with a tip in and a jumper to give the Beavers their biggest lead of the night at 26-13 with 4:32 to play in the first half.

Leading 28-18 to start the second half, Babson was held scoreless over the first 6:16 of the period before a triple by Wickey made it 31-22. Back-to-back hoops by Safford and Boornazian cut the deficit to 36-33 with 9:11 to go, and five straight points by Safford got the Bobcats within a point at 44-43 with 5:16 to play. The Beavers missed a layup on their next possession, and Saffard buried a three pointer to give Bates its first lead since the early moments of the game.

Another hoop by Safford gave Bates a 48-45 lead before two free throws from Flannery and a jumper by Wickey put the Green and White back in front 49-48 with 2:47 remaining. After empty trips for both teams, sophomore Marcus Delpeche (Wilmington, Del.) tipped in a Boornazian miss and was fouled, knocking down the free throw to give the Bobcats a 51-49 edge with 1:43 to go. Babson senior David Mack (Holden, Mass.) then tied it with a layup two possessions later with 32 ticks left.

With Bates holding for the final shot, Safford broke down a defender from just inside of half court and then calmly buried a three pointer for the win. After a timeout, the Beavers could only muster a halfcourt heave to tie the game that was well off the mark.

The Bobcats shot 44.7 percent (21-for-47) on the night, while Babson shot just 40 percent (20-for-50). The Green and White also held a slim 32-29 edge on the glass but was outscored 26-16 in the paint.

Babson returns to action on Tuesday when it hosts Lasell College at 7 p.m., while Bates travels to Husson University on Saturday at 1 p.m.

GAME NOTES: Babson is now 12-11 all-time against Bates but has dropped two consecutive meetings in the series...the Beavers are now 46-12 all-time in the Babson Invitational Tournament and are 17-8 in 25 championship game appearances...Babson had won seven consecutive games and three straight BIT titles prior to Sunday's loss going back to 2008.

Kaubris ready for role with Bates College men's team

“I’m definitely going to have a stepped up role from what I’ve had in the past,” Kaubris said. “All the playing this fall and into early on this season, my confidence level is real high right now. I hopefully will be able to battle. I won’t be the star player by any means, but I’ll be able to bring a lot of energy off the bench for the team and give us some good minutes here and there and help spark things offensively and defensively.” Bates coach Jon Furbush said that Kaubris' role is still evolving this early in the season. He said Kaubris is a player he knows is always into the game and always ready for when his time comes. "He's a great leader, " Furbush said. "He's someone who has developed his skill set over the last four years. My hope for him is that he gets an opportunity to see some floor time and gives us a spark off the bench. Certainly there's some competition there. He's our glue. He's into every possession and into every game and every practice. He's a very important piece to why we'll be successful if we are."...

Bates basketball moves to 3-0 with 74-65 win at Husson

BANGOR, Maine -- Senior Graham Safford had 13 points, eight assists and six rebounds, and junior Mike Newton came off the bench with 10 points and eight rebounds to keep the Bates men's basketball team undefeated with a 74-65 non-conference win at Husson University on Saturday. A 14-0 Bates run in the second half proved to be the difference in the outcome.

Junior Mike Boornazian (Portland, Conn.) and sophomore Marcus Delpeche (Wilmington, Del.) scored 11 points apiece for the Bobcats (3-0), with Delpeche throwing down three rim-rattling dunks in the final eight minutes of regulation to put an exclamation point on the evening's performance.

Bates fell behind by as many as eight points in the first half, as Husson made five 3-pointers in the opening 12 minutes, before a 12-2 run gave the Bobcats their first lead at 22-21 with 3:15 left in the period, on a layup by senior Billy Selmon (Atlanta, Ga.). A three by Husson's Eli Itkin returned the lead to the Eagles and started a 9-2 run before a layup by Boornazian with three seconds left closed Husson's advantage to 30-27 at halftime.

Husson's Aaron Willis, who scored a game-high 14 points, opened the second half with a three to expand the lead to 33-27, but Safford responded with a putback, followed by a layup off a steal by sophomore Malcolm Delpeche (Wilmington, Del.). Malcolm Delpeche fed his brother Marcus for a layup and three-point play to close the gap to 35-34, and a pair of free throws by Selmon put Bates back on top, 36-35, with 16:09 to go. Husson was able to tie the game up three more times down the stretch but never regained the lead.

After a pair of free throws by Husson's Jacob Moore with 11:41 left in the game, Bates ripped off 14 unanswered points in a span of 4:23, beginning with a drive and layup by Safford and continuing with hoops by Marcus Delpeche, two straight layups by senior Adam Philpott (Gloucester, Mass.), four consecutive points by Newton and a dunk by Marcus Delpeche that made it 58-44 with 7:18 left in the game.

Husson cut the lead to 60-50 with a 6-2 run, but Bates answered with a 9-0 run to put the game out of reach at 69-50 with 2:33 to play. Safford scored five unanswered points in the run, then assisted on Marcus Delpeche's final dunk to make it 69-50.

Itkin finished with 12 points for Husson (1-1), while Raheem Anderson added 13 and Matt Talbot scored 10.

The Bobcats will next host Southern Maine on Tuesday, Nov. 25 at 7:30pm.

Bates Fends off Late Huskies' Run, Defeats USM 56-47

Courtesy of Bates Sports Information

LEWISTON, Maine -- The Bates College men's basketball team took advantage of 18 first-half turnovers by the University of Southern Maine to build a 15-point lead at the break, and the Bobcats held off the Huskies in the second half for a 56-47 non-conference win Tuesday night at Alumni Gym.

The win puts Bates at 4-0 for the first time since the 2006-07 season.

Sophomore brothers Marcus and Malcolm Delpeche (Wilmington, Del.) both notched double-doubles in the game and tied for the team lead with 12 points apiece. Malcolm added 12 rebounds and two blocked shots, while Marcus grabbed 10 boards.

Mike Boornazian pitched in with 11 points and Graham Safford added 10 points, eight rebounds, four steals and three assists. Bates received all but three of its points from its starting lineup.

Zach Leal scored a game-high 13 points for USM (1-3). Cole Libby added 11 points, eight rebounds and four assists, and Fred Knight added nine points and a game-high 16 rebounds.

USM settled down in the second half, committing only four turnovers, and the Huskies were able to hang around the rest of the game, coming as close as within five points midway through the period, when Jalen Lincoln's 3-pointer made it 46-41 with 10:32 to go.

Malcolm Delpeche ended a mini-drought by both teams with an offensive putback, and Marcus Delpeche extended it to 50-41 with 6:55 left on a Safford assist. The Huskies missed seven field goal attempts in a row until another three by Lincoln made it 54-47 with 2:34 left, after Marcus Delpeche negated a Billy Selmon miss with a follow-up jam.

With 1:46 left, Libby and Knight missed and Knight fouled Malcolm Delpeche, who sank both of his free throws with 1:26 left to account for the final score at 56-47. The Bobcats couldn't make the Huskies pay for intentionally fouling them, missing their final four free throws, but the Huskies couldn't capitalize either.

Men's basketball outshoots Nor'easters in 101-85 road win

BIDDEFORD, Maine -- All five starters scored in double figures and the Bates men's basketball team remained unbeaten with a 101-85 victory at the University of New England in a non-conference game Sunday evening at the Harold Alfond Forum.

The Bobcats (5-0) are off to their best start since the 2006-07 campaign, which featured 11 consecutive wins to start the year. The Nor'easters dropped to 1-4 despite shooting 55.1 percent from the field in the game, including 64.7% (11-17) from behind the arc.

Bates received 21 points apiece from senior guard Billy Selmon (Atlanta, Ga.) and sophomore center Malcolm Delpeche (Wilmington, Del.), who were a combined 17-of-24 from the field. Selmon had four of his five treys and 14 points after halftime en route to his season-high in points; Delpeche added three blocks while tying his career-high in scoring.

Senior point guard Graham Safford (Hampden, Maine) posted a double-double with 19 points and a career-high 14 assists, in addition to collecting a game-high eight rebounds and three steals.

Junior Mike Boornazian (Portland, Conn.) had 11 of his 12 points in the opening frame, and sophomore Marcus Delpeche (Wilmington, Del.) tallied eight of his 10 in the second stanza.

The Bobcats, who never trailed in the contest, shot 56 percent (36 for 64) from the floor and went 12-of-23 (52 percent) from deep.

UNE's Devin Thompson registered a career-best 36 points in the game, eclipsing his previous high by five as he made all but one of seven 3-point attempts. The junior guard, who had 21 points at the break, also notched four assists, four steals, and three blocks. Evrim Ozkan contributed 13 points off the bench, and CJ Autry did not miss a shot on the way to 11 points. Jean-Luc Parker had 10 points for UNE.

The Bobcats jumped out to an 8-0 lead after two minutes, but the hosts assembled a 12-4 run to tie things at 14-all with six minutes gone. The scoreboard was level at 19-19 and 22-22 before Bates took control near the midway mark of the fisrt period.

The cushion peaked at 13 (48-35) with a little more than three minutes left in the half, before UNE closed with a 10-4 stretch to make it 52-45 at intermission. The Nor'easters trailed after 20 minutes despite shooting 58 percent (14-of-24) from the floor and going a perfect 7-of-7 from behind the arc.

Following the initial basket of the 2nd frame that cut the gap to five, Bates used an 11-2 spurt to bump the margin to 15 (66-51).

UNE got within nine points of Bates on two occasions down the stretch (76-67, 92-83), but was unable to draw any closer. The second time came with 2:12 left on the clock, and after a Bobcats timeout, Marcus Delpeche ended the 7-0 UNE run with a dunk. Seven unanswered free throws pushed the lead to its highest point (18) before Thompson capped his performance with one final jumper.

Bates returns home to face Colby College on Tuesday at 7pm, in the rivals' annual non-conference matchup.

Bates leads Colby wire-to-wire, rises to 6-0

LEWISTON, Maine -- The Bates College men's basketball team led wire-to-wire and improved to 6-0 with a 76-70 win over Colby College on Tuesday night in Alumni Gymnasium, in the NESCAC rivals' annual non-conference matchup.

Bates never led by more than 13 points, but Colby (5-3) could get no closer than within three points over the final 34 minutes of the game.

Junior Mike Boornazian (Portland, Conn.) scored a team-high 18 points for Bates, while sophomore Marcus Delpeche (Wilmington, Del.) went for 14 points and 11 rebounds. Sophomore Malcolm Delpeche (Wilmington, Del.) posted career-highs of six blocked shots and five assists in addition to 11 points and seven rebounds. Senior Graham Safford (Hampden, Maine) added 11 points and six boards.

Chris 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.

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

The opening two minutes couldn't have gone much better for Bates, with the Bobcats blocking the 6-foot-8 Hudnut's first two shots and turning them into a putback dunk by Marcus Delpeche for the game's opening points, and a layup by senior Billy Selmon (Atlanta, Ga.) off a Safford lob pass. A steal by Selmon then led to a Safford lob to Boornazian for a layup and a 6-0 lead, prompting a Colby timeout just 78 seconds into the game.

Colby's Ryan Jann canned a three to cut it to 10-8 with 14:15 to go, but Bates junior Josh Britten (Yarmouth, Maine) came off the bench to drain a three of his own on his first touch of the game.

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 layups 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 layups, 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 in answer. 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 5 seconds to go.

The rivals will meet again in a NESCAC game on Feb. 14 in Waterville. Bates will host Bowdoin in another non-conference game on Thursday at 7pm, while Colby will next play at Bowdoin on Saturday at 4pm.

High-flying Bobcats stifle Bowdoin, 71-51

LEWISTON, Maine -- The Bates College men's basketball team is flying high after its resounding 71-51 non-conference victory over Bowdoin College Thursday night in a packed Alumni Gym. The Bobcats remain undefeated at 7-0, matching their best start since 2006.

A complete team effort, particularly on defense, galvanized the Bobcats as they outscored the Polar Bears (4-2) 39-21 in the second half, pulling away from a 32-30 halftime lead. The Bobcats outrebounded the Polar Bears 39-22 in the game and limited Bowdoin to 45 field goal attempts, with 18 makes (40.0%).

Bates' sophomore brothers Malcolm Delpeche and Marcus Delpeche (Wilmington, Del.) combined to hold 7-foot All-NESCAC senior center John Swords to five points and three rebounds in 30 minutes. Swords attempted only two shots from the field and made both. Marcus Delpeche, the 6-7 forward, recorded his fourth double-double of the season with 11 points and 11 rebounds to go with four assists, while 6-8 center Malcolm Delpeche added 10 points and six rebounds.

Senior Graham Safford (Hampden, Maine) led Bates with 12 points, to go with eight rebounds, seven assists and three steals. Junior Mike Boornazian (Portland, Conn.) scored nine points, including seven in the opening five minutes, and senior Billy Selmon (Atlanta, Ga.) scored eight points, all in the first three minutes of the second half.

Bates also received excellent play from its reserves, who outscored Bowdoin's bench 21-7 with standout spot duty by senior Adam Philpott (Gloucester, Mass.; 6 points), first-year Justin Zukowski (Portland, Maine; 5 points), junior Mike Newton (Chapel Hill, N.C.; 4 points) and sophomore Max Eaton (St. Petersburg, Fla.; 6 points).

Lucas Hausman scored a game-high 22 points for Bowdoin, while Keegan Pieri added 10 points and a team-high seven rebounds. Swords was the visitors' next high scorer with five.

Philpott made back-to-back threes after a Malcolm Delpeche layup in an 8-0 run halfway through the first period, giving Bates a 22-14 lead. Bowdoin answered with a 10-0 run, getting a pair of layups by Neil Fuller and six points by Hausman, who warmed up with a deep three and then made three free throws two trips later after getting fouled on a shot behind the arc. Hausman fed Fuller's go-ahead layup with 6:00 to go for a 24-23 Bowdoin lead. Two trips later, a Pieri jumper gave the Polar Bears a 26-25 lead with 4:40 to go in the half. A steal by Safford with three seconds left in the half and a lead pass to Zukowski for the buzzer-beating layup gave Bates a 32-30 lead at the break.

Pieri opened the second half with two straight buckets and Bowdoin took its final lead at 34-32 with 18:15 to play. Selmon answered by swishing a three on a Boornazian assist, and Bates got a jolt of momentum seconds later, as Marcus Delpeche stole the ball and fed Selmon for a layup in transition. Marcus Delpeche fed Selmon again for a three on Bates' next possession, and Bowdoin called timeout after losing the ball out of bounds.

Bowdoin's Matt Palecki rippled a three from the wing to cut the lead to 42-38 before Eaton drained a spot-up three. After another Hausman jumper, Safford found Zukowski with an inbound pass for an open three. Safford followed with a steal and a breakaway layup to extend the lead into double digits for the first time.

Marcus Delpeche deftly dished to Safford and Newton for open layups, and after a missed three by Hausman, Safford sank a pullup three for a 57-45 lead. With 6:15 left to play, Safford fed Marcus Delpeche for an explosive throwdown of a dunk. Seconds later, Safford made another steal and flushed a breakaway dunk for a 61-47 lead, prompting a Bowdoin timeout and pandemonium from the Bates faithful.

Bowdoin went without a basket from the 7:53 mark until 46 seconds remained, allowing Bates to score 14 unanswered points -- eight of them scored by Marcus Delpeche, including another high-rising dunk from the baseline on an assist by Boornazian.

The Bobcats won't play again until Dec. 29 at Emory University. Bowdoin will host Colby in its first home game of the season on Saturday at 4pm.

Bates will play at Bowdoin on Feb. 13 in the rivals' NESCAC game.

Lynch has also been a product of the Boston Warriors AAAU program for the last four years and is the younger brother of former Westford Academy and Middlebury big man Peter Lynch...

Bates College senior finds inspiration, hope through Christmas tragedy
