BIDDEFORD, Maine -- Wol Majong and Peter Donato combined for 46 points to lead the Colby-Sawyer College men's basketball team to an 81-72 win over host University of New England in opening-day play at the Ramada Roundball Invitational Friday evening (Nov. 13) at the Harold Alfond Forum.

The Chargers (1-0) used runs of 8-0 and 10-0 during the closing period to erase a nine-point halftime deficit. Majong and Donato powered the surge with a total of 30 points in the frame on 11-of-18 shooting from the floor.

CSC scored the 10 unanswered to go up 70-62 with 6:20 left. The Nor'easters (0-1) got right back within two (70-68), but lost steam down the stretch.

Cam Meservey added 11 points for the winners -- all in the 1st half. Milani Hicks ended with nine points and nine rebounds, while Taylor Grande finished with eight points to go with a game-high 12 boards. On top of his 22 points, Donato pulled in 11 rebounds for Colby-Sawyer, which posted a 52-26 advantage on the glass.

UNE received a team-best 22 points out of Devin Thompson, and 17 more from Jean-Luc Parker. Gavin Dibble added 10 1st-half points off the bench. Drew Coveney tallied seven points, five rebounds, five assists, and five steals.

No lead in the game reached double digits. Back-to-back treys by Meservey put the visitor up 9-2 in the early-going, before a 14-0 run by the Nor'easters turned things around. After seeing the lead trimmed to one (18-17), Big Blue responded with eight straight to assume a nine-point cushion.

UNE gave some back but went into the break with a 43-34 edge. Thompson and Parker had 13 points apiece in the stanza, each knocking down three trifectas. The hosts also capitalized on 13 CSC turnovers in the half, converting them into 14 points.

The Nor'easters maintained a lead of seven (53-46) coming out of intermission, until a quick eight by the Chargers ended a 20-minute span with their opponent in front.

Seconds following a dunk by Donato that shifted Colby-Sawyer up, 60-59, Thompson buried a corner three-pointer for UNE. However, Majong rattled-in a triple of his own on the ensuing possession and CSC (63-62) never trailed again.

The Chargers will meet Saint Joseph's College of Maine in Saturday's event final at 3 p.m., while the Nor'easters are slated to face Hunter College in the 1 p.m. match. Later in the evening, the Monks canned 11-of-17 from long distance in the initial period on the way to an 88-81 victory over the Hawks.

Fast start leads Nor'easters past Hunter, 90-73

Box Score

BIDDEFORD, Maine -- The University of New England men's basketball team jumped out to an 18-2 cushion after six minutes and never trailed in a 90-73 victory over Hunter College in the consolation match of UNE's Ramada Roundball Invitational on Saturday afternoon (Nov. 14) at the Harold Alfond Forum.

All-Tournament selection Devin Thompson paced the Nor'easters (1-1) with 21 points in just 20 minutes, largely behind 5-of-6 shooting from deep. CJ Autry scored eight of his 14 points during the opening stretch, and Gavin Dibble chipped in with another 14 -- both before fouling out of the contest. Ben Judson netted 13 points off the bench and Drew Coveney dished out 11 assists to go with his seven points and six rebounds.

Big Blue shot 57 percent (17-30) from the field after halftime to pull away from a five-point lead at the break.

After the slow beginning, the Hawks (0-2) managed to shave the deficit back down to two until a late trey by Dibble gave the hosts a 38-33 edge at intermission.

Hunter was still hanging around (54-48 UNE) near the midway mark of the second period, before five straight from Judson followed soon after by a three-point play by Dibble pushed the spread into double digits for good.

All-Tournament honoree Brian Kruger, along with Matt Franks and Vuyisile Beschta, tallied 14 points for the Hawks. Franks also pulled in a game-best eight boards.

Later in the event's championship game, Colby-Sawyer College defeated Saint Joseph's College of Maine by a score of 84-72. Tournament MVP Wol Majong and all-tourney pick Peter Donato led the Chargers to the title, while All-Tournament selections Andrew Ruffen and John Crawley guided the Monks.

UNE returns to action on Tuesday (5:30 p.m.) for a home date with the University of Southern Maine.

BIDDEFORD, Maine -- Devin Thompson scored a game-high 22 points to lead five University of New England players in double figures, as the Nor'easters defeated the University of Southern Maine, 88-77, in non-conference men's basketball action Tuesday evening (Nov. 17) at the Harold Alfond Forum.

The win pushes the Nor'easters over the .500 mark at 2-1, while the Huskies drop to 1-1. The victory was the first for UNE over Southern Maine since Nov. 17, 2009.

Thompson was 9 of 9 from the free throw line and 3 of 5 beyond the arc to help him earn game-high honors in the scoring column. Both CJ Autry and Gavin Dibble established career highs with 19 and 15 points, respectively. Autry hit four treys and was 7 of 8 at the free throw line, while Dibble was 6-for-9 from the floor. Jean-Luc Parker chipped in 13 points and Ben Judson added 10.

Zach Leal converted 6 of 9 attempts from the floor to pace the Huskies with 17 points. He added seven rebounds and six assists. Jose Novchanthavong scored 16 points, Atencio Martin contributed 14 points and a game-best eight boards, and Cole Libby tossed in 12 points.

Leading 37-35 at intermission, the Nor'easters outscored USM 11-5 over the opening 4:31 to open up a 48-40 advantage. Southern Maine would respond with a 13-4 spurt to grab a one-point advantage (53-52) before UNE fashioned an 18-6 run to seize control and lead 70-59 with 5:34 remaining.

The Huskies got as close as six (77-71) on a layup by Leal with 2:11 remaining, but would be unable to reduce the deficit any further the rest of the way.

UNE returns to action Thursday with a 7 p.m. road game at the University of Maine Farmington. The Huskies will face Colby-Sawyer College on Friday in the opening round of the Rivier College Tip-Off Tournament (8 p.m.).

Nor'easters surge late to edge Polar Bears, 72-70

Box Score

BRUNSWICK, Maine -- The University of New England went on a 17-4 run over a six-minute span down the stretch to turn around an eight-point deficit and secure a 72-70 men's basketball victory over Bowdoin College on Tuesday evening (Nov. 24) at Morrell Gymnasium.

Big Blue's first win over the Polar Bears since the 1993-94 season (17 losses) improves the Nor'easters to 4-2 on the year, while Bowdoin slips to 1-2.

In a match that featured 12 lead-changes and eight ties during the initial 28 minutes, Bowdoin used nine unanswered points from Jack Simonds and Lucas Hausman to gain the largest cushion (8) for either side at 63-55 with 8:40 left.

UNE countered with 11 in-a-row to start the deciding shift on the scoreboard and put the visitors up, 66-63. Devin Thompson had eight of those points, including his sixth triple of the contest -- with the previous three-pointer moments earlier, Thompson became the 29th player in program history to surpass the 1,000-point milestone for his career.

Hausman evened things at 66-all before pair of freebies by Thompson restored the lead for the Nor'easters. Matt Lettick then converted his only two baskets of the game to extend the gap to 72-67.

Though UNE could not score in the final 2:15, with a missed trey and two turnovers, Bowdoin went 0-for-4 from the field and 3-of-5 at the line during the remainder to come up just short. Hausman was fouled with 1.8 seconds remaining and had a chance to knot the game with a 1-and-1 at the charity stripe, but missed the first attempt. Bowdoin got the offensive board, but a desperation three-pointer by Simonds rimmed out at the buzzer.

Thompson ended with 22 points, with Gavin Dibble adding 16 and CJ Autry tossing in 11. Drew Coveney had team-highs of seven rebounds and five assists for Big Blue, which was +9 from behind the arc (15-of-42) compared to its opponent.

Hausman finished with a game-best 34 points for the Polar Bears, and Simonds tallied 12. Matt Palecki registered a double-double of 11 points and 11 rebounds.

The Nor'easters went up by six (32-26) nearing the end of the 1st half, before a 10-3 rally put the hosts in front by one at the break.

UNE continues it challenging early-season docket with a visit to Bates College on Sunday.

Big Blue bounces Bates with hot shooting, 101-89

Box Score

LEWISTON, Maine -- The University of New England men's basketball team connected on 63.8 percent (30-of-47) of its field goals with 10 three-pointers (71.4%) and 31 free throws (775.%) to chalk up a 101-89 victory over Bates College on Sunday evening (Nov. 29) at Alumni Gymnasium.

Ending a six-game skid against the Bobcats, the Nor'easters improve to 5-2 on the year. Bates, which reached the third round of the NCAA Championship last season, slips back to 2-2.

UNE's ledger through seven games is the best in more than 25 seasons, and the first above .500 (better than 2-5) since 2008-09 (4-3).

Devin Thompson tallied a game-best 21 points for Big Blue. Drew Coveney added 18 points that included 4-of-4 from long distance, a team-high six rebounds, and eight assists. CJ Autry also scored 18 points, and Jean-Luc Parker contributed 11. Three others -- Gavin Dibble, Matt Lettick, and Sam Thomas -- each had nine points. Of the nine Nor'easters to play and score, seven made at least half of their field goal attempts.

For Bates, Malcolm Delpeche had 18 points and seven rebounds, and Justin Zukowski tossed in 15 off the bench. Mike Boornazian registered 14 points and Quin Leary finished with 10 more. Marcus Delpeche and Boornazian shared the game-high in rebounding with eight.

UNE jumped out to a 9-2 lead before the Bobcats gained an 18-17 edge near the midway mark of the 1st half. Bates then used an 8-0 run, including six from Shawn Stickland, to take its largest cushion of the contest at 33-28.

However, only Boornazian could score for the hosts over the final 4:41 of the period as five Nor'easters combined for 15 points to grab a 43-37 advantage at the break. With six in that closing stretch, Autry's 11 points led all players through 20 minutes.

Big Blue quickly extended the lead to 12 (53-41) early in the 2nd half, but an 18-8 swing by Bates not long after wiped away the double-digit deficit to level things at 66-all with 8:41 to go.

Layups by Lettick and Parker restored the UNE edge on the scoreboard, and a technical resulted in a six-point possession for the visitors to establish a 76-66 margin.

Zukowski constructed a 7-2 spurt of his own to get the Bobcats back within six (79-73), only to see the Nor'easters finish the remaining 5:11 without missing a live-ball shot (4-for-4) and sink 14-of-17 at the charity stripe.

Big Blue's 58 points in the final frame came behind 80 percent accuracy from the floor and 23 freebies. Bates was able to keep pace in spite of 36 percent shooting (13-of 36) with a 22-of-25 performance at free throw line.

UNE will entertain Wentworth Institute of Technology in its Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) opener on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.

Men’s basketball: Slow start dooms UNE
The Nor'easters rally in the second half, but lose on a basket with 3.8 seconds left.

BIDDEFORD — On the final play of its first Commonwealth Coast Conference game of the year, the University of New England men’s basketball team was unable to get off a clean shot because of some strong, physical defense by Wentworth, which held on for a 59-57 victory at Harold Alfond Forum on Wednesday night.

“I thought it was a foul, but we put ourselves in a bad situation,” said UNE Coach Ed Silva. “A lot of times, late in games, you see plays like that maybe not get called. You have to move on from that. We had plenty of opportunities.”
