The UNBSJ Seawolves Men’s basketball team held the undefeated Holland College Hurricanes to a season low 74 points in the entertaining Sunday matchup.
The game against the 11-0 Holland College Hurricanes brought edge-of-your-seat entertainment to end the Think Pink weekend. Throughout all four quarters neither team let up on their attack but momentum at last swung in the Hurricane’s direction giving them the 74-56 win.
Seawolves Guard, Jarred Crawford set the tempo by firing up the home crowd with a rim rattling dunk over Hurricanes forward Stephon Smith. Crawford led the Seawolves in scoring pouring in 15 points and five rebounds.
The Seawolves played a strong first quarter outscoring Holland College, 18-12.
“Coach, peter Vincent, wanted us to make them shoot from outside, to prevent live ball turnovers and attack their big men to get them into foul trouble, which we did very well.” Says second year guard, Steve Ryan of the Seawolves.
Seawolves continued to play well and in the final seconds of the half, Nick Huggard managed a buzzer beating 3 point shot over a Holland defender sending the team into halftime down two points, 28-26.
Huggard led scoring in the second for the team with 11 points while hitting on 3 of 5 three-point attempts. However the performance from Hurricanes guards Whyley Roosevelt, 20 points and Trevone Grant, 14 points, pushed their team ahead in the draining back-to-back three point attempts in the dying minutes of the fourth quarter.
“In the last five minutes we fell out of rhythm, leading to turnovers that fuelled them, which cost us the game” said Ryan after the game.
The Seawolves Men’s basketball team falls to 5-6, despite a 111 – 41 win over the Dalhousie AC Rams on Saturday. They remain fourth in the standings and will host the Mount Saint Vincent Mystics on Saturday, January 23 at 5pm.
