BRUNSWICK, Maine – Saint Joseph's College (3-3) toppled Bowdoin College (6-2), 77-59, in a non-conference men's basketball game on Tuesday night.

FIRST GLANCE:
Junior guard Ian Mileikis (Auburn, Maine) netted a game-high 25 points while junior Darian Berry (Rochester, N.H.) and freshman Jack Casale (Portland, Maine/Cheverus) both scored 15 points to help lift Saint Joseph's past Bowdoin, which received votes in the latest D3Hoops.com national poll and was ranked 22nd in last week's release.

THE REST OF THE STORY:
The first half featured four ties and five lead changes with St. Joe's carrying a 34-31 edge into intermission, but the second half was a different story, as the Monks kicked off the latter frame with a 16-1 run en route to securing a 50-32 lead. Casale nailed a three-pointer with 14:34 remaining to cap the scoring outburst.

Over the following three minutes, the Polar Bears rallied and cut the Monks' cushion to nine points (52-43). Senior guard Liam Farley (Chicago, Ill.) closed out an 11-2 Bowdoin run with a trifecta, but – after a timeout – Saint Joseph's regained the double-digit advantage with a 9-2 burst, with Casale (five) and senior forward Quinn Richardson-Newton (Saco, Maine) (four) producing all nine points.
The Monks held on to the two-digit lead for the remainder of play and held a game-high 20-point (74-54) cushion after sophomore guard Mario Nery (Bronx, N.Y.) made a pair of free throws with 3:58 left.

Down the stretch, three SJC players combined to make seven of eight free throw attempts and the Monks' defense held the Polar Bears without a field goal for the final 2:22 minutes.

LEADERS – SAINT JOSEPH'S:
  • Mileikis, 9-13 from the floor, scored 16 of his game-high total in the second half and chipped in with four steals and three rebounds
  • Casale was 4-8 from downtown, 5-10 from the field, and grabbed four boards in 24 minutes off the bench
  • Berry hauled in a game-high eight rebounds with three assists
  • Richardson-Newton contributed eight points and four caroms
  • Senior Aaron Hall (Haverhill, Mass.) and junior Jae Johns (Lindenhurst, N.Y.) scored six points apiece
LEADERS – BOWDOIN:
  • Junior forward Jack Simonds (Falmouth, Maine) scored 19 points off a 7-12 shooting performance
  • Junior forward Hugh O'Neil (Lexington, Mass.) added 14 points, four boards, and three assists
  • Farley chipped in with 10 points
TEAM STATS:
Saint Joseph's held advantages in rebounds (34-30), points off turnovers (12-6), second-chance points (11-4), points in the paint (30-26), and bench points (21-12) in the victory. The Monks outscored the Polar Bears by a 43-27 margin while shooting 57.1% (16-28) from the field in the second half.

HISTORICALLY SPEAKING:
With the victory, Saint Joseph's improves to 10-16 all-time versus Bowdoin College and has now defeated the Polar Bears in consecutive meetings for the fourth time in the history of the series with Bowdoin. The Monks edged the Polar Bears, 91-88, in overtime at the Harold Alfond Center last winter.

The Monks are now 5-9 against the Polar Bears on their home court, Morrell Gymnasium, and entered tonight's game having not posted a win there since 2011.

Saint Joseph's will host Rivier University in a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) contest Saturday at 3:00 PM.

Nor'easters outlast Gulls, 57-48, to go 7-1

BEVERLY, Mass. -- The University of New England closed the final 4:09 with a 10-1 run to secure a 57-48 Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) women's basketball victory over Endicott College on Tuesday night (Dec. 5) at MacDonald Gymnasium.

Winners of four in-a-row, the Nor'easters (7-1) now stand alone atop the league standings at 3-0.

After four lead-changes early in the 4th quarter, Endicott's Gabriella Coppola tied the game for a seventh time (47-47) with a three-pointer at the 4:24 mark. But that was the last field goal the hosts could manage against the UNE defense. The Gulls came up empty on their last eight tries, and could only connect with 4-of-16 accuracy during the ultimate session.

Meanwhile, the Nor'easters went 7-for-9 shooting the ball over the same span and accounted for more than 1/3 of their offensive production (21 points), which included six scoring possessions in seven trips at the finish.

Sam MacDonald led the UNE effort with 14 points. Ashley Coneys had eight down the stretch, and registered 12 points with seven rebounds in the contest. Olivia Shaw posted a double-double of 10 points and a game-high 10 boards, helping the visitors record a 47-30 advantage in the rebounding department. Kristie McNall tossed in eight points -- all in the 3rd frame.

For Endicott (4-2, 2-1 CCC), Coppola paced all scorers with 19 points and six assists. Emily Pratt notched each of her 12 points following halftime, and Sam Charette added seven points with six rebounds.

Like the finish, the start was equally commanding for the Nor'easters. UNE constructed an 8-0 cushion while holding the Gulls scoreless until the 2:09 mark of the 1st, through eight missed shots, two empty free throws, and six turnovers. However, the lead was sliced to 11-7 by the conclusion of the opening stanza, once Coppola banked-in a 60-foot heave at the buzzer.

Things got closer in the 2nd (UNE 18-17 at halftime), and, sparked by six from Coppola, Endicott grabbed its largest edge (25-20) in the initial stages of the 3rd quarter. The Nor'easters needed a last-second hoop from MacDonald to level the match at 36-all heading into the deciding period.

UNE will look to take its positive momentum into Saturday's date at No.1 Tufts University.

BEVERLY, Mass. -- Endicott College connected on 19 of its first 27 three-point attempts on the way to a 115-91 Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) men's basketball victory over the University of New England on Tuesday evening (Dec. 5) at MacDonald Gymnasium.

The Gulls (3-2, 2-1 CCC) never trailed in the contest, and used a 19-6 run over five minutes to gain a 30-15 advantage before the midway mark of the 1st half. Behind 64 percent (25-for-39) field goal accuracy in the period, EC held a 66-32 lead at the break. Meanwhile, the Nor'easters only made 29 percent from the floor, and just 5-of-29 from deep.

Endicott drained its initial seven shots of the 2nd, including four triples, to build an 84-38 cushion with 17:16 to go.

Matt McDevitt led the Gulls with 31 points, missing just once in his first 12 tries and racking up 28 by the early moments of the closing stanza. Keith Brown went for 22 points, while Vinny Clifford added 11 and both Russell Noonan and Joe Del Ricci chipped in with 10. Joe Shehadi secured a game-high 10 rebounds.

The hosts registered 33 assists on 43 baskets in the match.

For UNE (2-6, 1-2 CCC), Ryan Beatty drilled all four of his looks from behind the arc in the 2nd and totaled 19 points. Gavin Dibble finished with 14 points and nine rebounds. Jordan Bagshaw and Ryan Matthews contributed 13 and 12 points, respectively.

The Nor'easters return home to face Dean College in non-league action on Saturday (1 p.m.).
