Husson men's basketball tabbed first in NAC preseason poll

...Head coach Warren Caruso says the team doesn't put stock into the poll, but they do realize that it puts a target on their back.



"So its bit of an expectation that we're near the top of it so we're honored that we're unanimously picked number one but it also puts a little pressure on us to say hey this is the standard and we gotta be ready to face that challenge that's going to be coming at us every night," Caruso said.



Below is the NAC preseason poll:



No. 1 - Husson 100 (10)

No. 2 - Colby-Sawyer 79

No. 3 - Castleton 66

No. 3 - Thomas 66

No. 5 - Lyndon 57

No. 6 - UMaine-Farmington 55

No. 7 - New England College 45

No. 8 Johnson 39

Gilpin, Coyne looking to make sophomore jump for Bates

...“We knew each other pretty well,” Coyne said. “We were pretty close (by that official visit). And I don’t think it was something we like set up, but once we realized that it was a thing that could happen … it was just kind of like a plus at that point. We’ve played well together before. Our games match each other well. So that was just like a bonus. I don’t think it was like a pre-determined thing.”

The two players, both guards, shared the court at times as freshmen for the Bobcats last year, though Gilpin was largely a starter and Coyne came off the bench. The 6-foot-3 Gilpin averaged 5.2 points, 3.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 24.3 minutes per game last year, starting 21 of 25 games. The 6-foot Coyne poured in 7.0 points and 1.2 rebounds a game, and made 1.7 3-pointers per contest.

“I think their first year they exceeded the expectations, given the amount of talent I thought we had last year,” Bates coach Jon Furbush said.

“Coming in I really didn’t know what to expect. Playing time wasn’t really something I talked to Coach about coming it. It was just I wanted to get in, do whatever I could to help the team,” Gilpin said. “So I was a little surprised by how many minutes I got, but I was excited about the opportunity to (come here) and play as much as I did.”

Bates Bobcats will look to run this season

...The Bobcats have just two seniors this season — guards Justin Zukowski and Shawn Strickland. Furbush said their experience playing in big games (including the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament two years ago) will help keep a young team together.

With a switch in style of play to a faster pace, Furbush will look to go to a deeper bench to keep fresh legs on the court.

“This is the first team I’ve had where we have like 13 healthy guys right now, and I feel comfortable injecting anybody into the lineup,” Furbush said. “That’s good, but it also makes my decision a little more difficult. But it also applies pressure on guys. Like practice is more meaningful, because if you’re not practicing well there’s somebody right behind you that can get an opportunity to play.”

Bates has six freshmen on the roster this year, and many of them will get plenty of chances to play. Guard/forward James Mortimer is expected to get big minutes for the Bobcats, and 6-foot-8 stretch forward Sunny Piplani “can really shoot it,” according to Furbush. Guards Malik Velmar, David Akinyemi and Billy Lahart will all get opportunities to play as well.

The team will be young overall, with junior Max Hummel and sophomore Nick Gilpin the only returning starters.

UMF will play faster in 2017-18

...Meader will be counting on several key players, including Riley Robinson — a 6-foot-3 sophomore forward — to make things happen on the court.

“Riley Robinson certainly has improved his body. He has shot the ball very well in preseason,” Meader said. “He handles the ball a lot for us. He is the trailer coming down the court. He can guard a bigger player inside so Riley is one of our major go-to players.”

Meader will turn to several players for perimeter shooting and rebounding such as Issac Witham — a sophomore 6-foot guard — and Bill Ruby — a sophomore 6-foot-3 forward.

“Issac Witham is maybe our best shooter,” Meader said. “Very good perimeter scorer and point guard. Plays defense. He is just solid.

“Billy Ruby, who got hurt early last year for and was out the majority of the year, is really back to full speed. He is really playing well. His shot has improved. He has good quickness taking the ball to the hoop. He will rebound the ball. He is a pretty good rebounder. “

HUSKIES START 2017-18 WITH WIN OVER UNE

BIDDEFORD, Maine -- Sean Jany poured in 42 points to pace the University of Southern Maine in a 97-88 men's basketball decision over the University of New England on Wednesday night (Nov. 15) at the Harold Alfond Forum.

The Huskies (1-0) began the 2nd half on a 12-0 run to go up 55-41, and the lead peaked at 15 (59-44) shortly after. But the Nor'easters (0-1) used the next 7:20 to assemble a 24-11 stretch that closed the gap to just two (70-68) inside the last 10 minutes.

UNE would get no closer, though. A three-pointer cut the spread to 92-88 at the 1:36 mark, however the home side could not connect on any of its final six field goal attempts to apply further pressure.

Jany was efficient throughout the evening, going 13-of-20 from the floor (5-of-9 3-pointers) and 11-for-15 at the line. He also notched seven rebounds and three blocks. Bryon McMillian and Devin Moultrie added 12 points apiece for Southern Maine, while Cam Scott and Christian McCue each tossed in nine. Scott picked up five steals and Kevin Weisser controlled 16 defensive rebounds.

For the Nor'easters, Ryan Matthews led the way with 14 points. Another 10 came from both Daron Hoges, Jr. and Drew Muniz, and Matt Hobbs registered nine. Hoges and Hobbs pulled down seven rebounds each, and Drew Coveney grabbed a career-high nine steals.

UNE turned 25 offensive boards into 26 second-chance points, and paired that with 29 points off 36 USM turnovers (25 UNE steals).

The Huskies out-scored their opponent by 20 at the charity stripe, making 33 of 49 tries. The Nor'easters, meanwhile, struggled from behind the arc, cashing in on just 19.7 percent (15-of-76) of their shots from deep.

UNE will host Colby College, Colby-Sawyer College, and St. Joseph's College (Brooklyn) in the Hampton Inn Tip-Off Tournament this weekend. Action gets started at 5:30 p.m. on Friday.
