High expectations for men’s basketball team

WATERVILLE, Maine — The expectations will be high when the Colby College men’s basketball team takes the floor Friday on the opening night of the season at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute Tournament.

The Mules will face a good College of Staten Island squad on Friday at 7:30 p.m. at WPI in the season opener. After the tourney, Colby plays its home opener Tuesday at 5 p.m. against Thomas College.
“We are excited to pursue a NESCAC championship and fight to make a run in the NCAA tournament,” Colby head coach Damien Strahorn said. “This group has been growing together over the last couple of years and the start of practices have been filled with competition and great energy. The schedule is going to be tough and it is the type of challenge that we need to be ready to play our best basketball come late February and March.”
Last year was supposed to be the breakout season for the Mules after going 14-11 in the 2013-14 season. Colby, though, lost starting forward Patrick Stewart (Bangor, Maine) to injury for the entire season and had another major setback when 6-foot-8 center Chris Hudnut (Chevy Chase, Md.) missed the final seven games of the season.
Colby was 2-5 without Hudnut to finish the season at 13-12 overall. The Mules did have some good games without Hudnut, nearly beating top-seeded Trinity College in a New England Small College Athletic Conference quarterfinal game.
Hudnut and Stewart will join fellow seniors Luke Westman (Newton, Mass.), Ryan Jann (Westford, Mass.), Sam Willson (Watertown, Conn.), John Gallego (Old Bethpage, N.Y.), and Michael Logninoff (San Mateo, Calif.) to form a veteran team.
Hudnut, who went over 1,000 career points last year, is one of the top players in the NESCAC. He was tied for second in the league in scoring (19.7), fourth in rebounding (9.7), and seventh in field goal percentage (52.9). Hudnut’s passing from the post was key in Colby getting a number of open outside shots, and he made opponents pay for fouling him by finishing 10th in the league in free throw percentage (78.3).
Stewart, a 6-6 forward, will be a big help to Hudnut on the boards. He averaged 11.4 points, 6.9 rebounds, and shot 43.3 percent from 3-point range in his sophomore season.
“Patrick is back and playing great,” Strahorn said. “He’s doing a great job with his stretching and maintenance program. He adds so much to our team.”
Westman had some normal statistics for a point guard in finishing seventh in the conference in assists per game (4.2), sixth in steals (1.6), and 14th in scoring (13.1). The unusual statistic was his 73.2 percent shooting from the field to lead the conference. Westman would have been first in Division III, but was slightly below the minimum attempts requirement.
Jann was 13th in the NESCAC in scoring (13.4) and 11th in 3-point shooting (38.5), while Willson finished third in the league in free throw percentage (87.9) and 18th in scoring (11.9). Gallego was a back-up to Westman and played well enough to earn 16.1 minutes per contest. Loginoff started six games last year and gives Colby bench strength.
Junior guards Joe Connelly (Brookline, Mass.) and Myles Stephenson (New York, N.Y.) will look for minutes. Connelly, a transfer from Wesleyan University, played 12.1 minutes a game last year. Stephenson can handle the ball and is not afraid to take it to the basket.
Colby’s depth includes a sophomore class looking to make an impression. Pat Dickert (Hatfield, Mass.) made the Maine All-Rookie Team while playing limited minutes. Tony Karalekas (Naples, Fla.) was another player lost to injury last year, while Sam Joaquin (Ashland, Mass.) and CP Majgaard (Hillerod, Denmark) both return on the forward line.
“The sophomore group has made nice progress. Pat is playing with fantastic energy right now and Tony has returned and gives us great versatility on the wing and as a stretch four,” Strahorn said. “Sam and CP have both taken some great steps this year and are continuing to make progress.”
First-year forwards Steven Daley (Westwood, Mass.) and Dean Weiner (Tenafly, N.J.) join guard Maximilian Steiner (Washington, D.C.) in the latest recruiting class.

Men’s basketball loses big lead in overtime setback

WORCESTER, Mass. — The Colby College men’s basketball team led by as much as 26 points early in the second half before College of Staten Island used a big run to send the game to overtime and pull away for a 98-92 win on the first day of the WPI Tournament on Friday night.

The Mules (0-1 overall) will take on Curry College at 1 p.m. in the consolation game Saturday.
Colby did the job offensively with a 29-for-59 effort from the field and a blistering 14-for-24 from 3-point range. The Mules, however, could not stop Staten Island’s Frank Schettino, who had 43 points, nine rebounds, and four assists.
The Mules got off to a slow start and trailed 17-9 with 11:17 to halftime. Colby settled down and used a 19-0 run to turn a deficit into a 51-32 lead at intermission.
The second half was more of the same for Colby, pushing the lead to 59-33 with 17:57 left in the contest. College of Staten Island woke up and used a 26-2 run to cut a 66-41 Colby lead to a 68-67 Mule margin with 7:10 to play in regulation.
The Mules had a chance to win in regulation and held a 78-75 lead. Schettino nailed a 3-point shot with 45 seconds left to send the game to the extra period.
Colby had an 80-78 lead early in overtime, but that was the lone lead in the five minutes. Schettino had five straight points to help Staten Island go up 88-82 and then pull away more.
Ryan Jann had a team-high 24 points on 9-for18 shooting for Colby. Sam Willson hit all eight of his free throws on the way to 19 points, while center Chris Hudnut had 14 points and nine rebounds. Joe Connelly was 4-for-5 from the field for 11 points and Patrick Stewart had 10.
Will Fonseca and Khaleeq Baum helped Schettino out with 19 points apiece for Staten Island (2-0), which won 20 games last year.

Men’s basketball settles for consolation game win

WORCESTER, Mass. — Chris Hudnut scored a collegiate-high 38 points and tied for a team-high five assists to help the Colby College men’s basketball team to a 102-88 victory over Curry College in the consolation game of the WPI Tournament on Saturday.

Hudnut (Chevy Chase, Md.) had his big game on 14-for-20 shooting from the field and was 10-for-11 at the free-throw line. He also had six rebounds.
Senior Luke Westman (Newton, Mass.) posted a double-double of 11 points and 10 boards, while classmate Ryan Jann (Westford, Mass.) added 22 points and five assists for the Mules. Senior Patrick Stewart (Bangor, Maine) also scored 11 points. Sophomore Pat Dickert (Hatfield, Mass.), bolstered by a 6-for-6 day at the foul line, finished with nine points. Stewart and senior Sam Willson (Watertown, Conn.) each hauled in seven boards as Willson blocked three shots.
Junior Trey Jones (Mattapan, Mass.) led the Colonels with 21 points and teammate Paul Preziosi (Quincy, Mass.) scored 20.

Colby had the upper hand in the paint (42-28), off turnovers (24-6), and second chance (14-6).
The Mules led most of the first half and claimed an 11-point advantage with 5:52 left before the break. Preziosi then scored nine of the Colonels’ 15 points to take a 39-38 lead with 1:43 remaining in the half. The teams traded the lead once more as the Mules headed to the locker room up 42-41.

Colby men’s basketball pulls away from Thomas
Mules go on big run in 2nd half to get past crosstown rival.

WATERVILLE — After a back and forth first half, the Colby College men’s basketball team started to see the results of its defensive effort. After taking the lead for good late in the first half, the Mules opened the second half with a strong run, pulling away from crosstown rival Thomas College for a 77-61 win.

“I think we just kept bringing our defensive intensity and playing hard. I think that carried over from the first half,” Colby senior forward Patrick Stewart said. “The first five minutes of the game, you give up 16 points, but after that I think the energy was there.”

Colby men’s basketball opens season with high expectations
Chris Hudnut, Patrick Stewart lead rejuvenated Mules.

WATERVILLE — It’s coming a year later than expected, but the Colby College men’s basketball team is eager to live up to the promise it showed in the 2013-14 season.

Two years ago, the Mules went 14-11, and led by then-sophomores Chris Hudnut (center) and Patrick Stewart (forward), Colby felt confident in could get back in the upper echelon of the New England Small College Athletic Conference. However, Stewart then missed the entire 2014-15 season with a back injury. Hudnut played like one of the top big men in the country for most of the season before a knee injury cost him the final seven games of the season.

With the Mules up 78-76 after two free throws by Stewart with 2:33 to play, Bowdoin went ahead for the final time when Simonds nailed his third 3-point shot of the game with 2:27 to go. Neither team could manage a point until Hudnut hit his big shot with 1:05 to play off an assist from Jann.
Jann had another big assist after Bowdoin missed on a jumper. With the shot clock counting down, he took the ball hard to the basket and dished to his left to Willson for a layup and an 82-79 lead with 26 seconds to go.
Westman drew a charge on the sideline in front of Bowdoin’s bench with 21 seconds to play. Gallego was fouled in the backcourt with 15 seconds to play and calmly sank both free throws for an 84-79 lead. After the Polar Bears missed on a 3-point shot, Stewart closed out the scoring with two more free throws with six seconds remaining.

Sick men’s basketball team struggles against Tufts

MEDFORD, Mass. — On a day when a number of the Colby College men’s basketball team were feeling sick, the Mules had the bad luck of going up against 22nd-ranked Tufts University in a 92-65 setback on Saturday in NESCAC play.

The Mules drop to 10-3 overall and 0-2 in the league, while Tufts is 11-2 and 2-0 in the conference.
Colby had a number of players and coaches with a virus overnight after Friday’s game at Bates College.
Tufts senior tri-captain Ryan Spadaford made five of nine on 3-point shots to finish with 21 points, while sophomore Vincent Pace led the Jumbos with 22. Junior tri-captain Tom Palleschi finished with 19 as the trio combined for 62 points.
Colby was led by 21 points from senior Ryan Jann, who hit on four of six 3-point attempts.
Led by Spadaford, Tufts was 13-for-27 (.481) from 3-point range against Colby.
A pair of threes by Spadaford and another from senior tri-captain Stephen Haladyna helped the Jumbos pull out to a 20-8 lead five minutes into the game. Colby scored the next five points, including three free throws from senior John Gallego, to close within 20-13 at the seven-minute mark. However, with a 7-0 spurt led by five points from Palleschi, the Jumbos took a 27-13 advantage at 11:23 of the first half and would lead by double digits for the rest of the game.

The margin was 17 at halftime and Colby came within 15 three times early in the second half as Jann got hot from 3-point range. The Mules were down 61-46 following sophomore Pat Dickert’s layup at 16:00, but the Jumbos’ lead remained more than comfortable throughout the remainder of the game.

Dickert was the only other Mule in double figures with 14 points. Senior Patrick Stewart finished with eight points and four rebounds.
