SVC edged by Newbury
BROOKLINE, Mass. — The Southern Vermont College men's basketball team couldn't quite come back from a first half deficit Tuesday night as the visiting Mountaineers fell 95-89 to Newbury College in New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) action at Pappas Gymnasium.
SVC outscored the Nighthawks by five in the final 20 minutes, but it was not enough to overcome the 53-42 NC halftime lead.
Tuesday marked the most points SVC has posted in defeat since a 103-95 loss to Wheelock College on February 8, 2014. It also snapped Southern Vermont's eight-game winning streak over Newbury. Three of the Mountaineers' four losses this year have been by single-digit margins with the average difference being just four points in those three tilts.
Five Mountaineers reached double figures in the points column Tuesday with two of them recording double-doubles. Andre Hodo tied his career-high of 23 points while notching a career-best 16 rebounds; he also had five assists in the effort. Donnell Frayer Jr. followed with 22 points, 10 boards, four assists, and two steals.
Josh Borders registered 17 points, five rebounds, and three assists while Aaron Murray had 13 points, eight caroms, and four assists. Kiran Durant chipped in with 12 points in 27 minutes off the bench.
Southern Vermont (8-4, 2-2 NECC) is back at home for the rest of the week with the Mountaineers' next game being a 7 p.m. conference showdown with Becker College on Thursday.
English, Genevick earn first-team all-state nods
CAMBRIDGE, N.Y. — A pair of Cambridge seniors were named to the Class C New York state all-state football team.
Tommy English was named to the first team as a running back and Nate Genevick earned the nod for first team defensive line. The award is the second year in a row that Genevick was chosen for the state honor.
English had a tremendous season for Cambridge, who went 10-1 and lost in the state quarterfinals to Ogdensburg Free Academy. He rushed for 1,527 yards and 23 touchdowns, and scored 27 total touchdowns while racking up 2,282 all-purpose yards. Genevick had a great year at defensive end, making 105 tackles, two sacks, a fumble recovery and a blocked punt.
Two more Indians were named as honorable mentions — running back Tyler Linendoll and linebacker Jordan Dean.
Linendoll rushed for 1,127 yards and 18 touchdowns, while Dean led the Indians with 132 tackles.
Hoosick Falls had three honorable mention players in quarterback Sam Richard, running back Jeffrey Vincent and offensive lineman Nate Miller.
Richard completed 55-of-85 for 788 yards for nine touchdowns against two interceptions, while Vincent ran for 794 yards and 11 touchdowns. Vincent also caught 17 passes for 201 yards and two touchdowns.
SVC edges Lesley
MEDFORD, Mass. — Southern Vermont College came back in the second half Monday night to claim a 59-54 New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) women's basketball win over Lesley University at Medford High School.
After the Mountaineers trailed 29-20 at the intermission, they cut the deficit down to four by the end of the third quarter. SVC then outscored the Lynx by nine in the final frame to pull ahead and take the victory.
SVC freshman Julia Ryan led the visitors with a season-high 14 points while adding eight rebounds and two steals to her line.
Senior Maddy Main tied the game-high of 17 rebounds, and she scored 13 points for her fifth double-double of the year. Freshman Liv Pressley also hit double figures with 12 points, and she tallied three steals in the effort.
Field goal percentages were fairly even with Southern Vermont notching a 32.3 (21-65) to LU's 31.6 (18-57). The Lynx grabbed a 48-47 edge in rebounds and outscored SVC 28-18 inside the paint. The Mountaineers had a 6-2 advantage in three-pointers, however, and had a 13-10 upper hand in second-chance points.
