Weekend area roundup Gordon men fall one game shy of D3 Sweet Sixteen

MEN’S COLLEGE BASKETBALL

For a game-and-a-half, the glass slipper was a perfect fit for the Gordon men’s basketball team.

In the second half of a second round game against Wiliams, the Ephs put an end of Gordon’s dream season and came away with an 81-63 decision to advance to the NCAA Division 3 Sweet Sixteen.

The Scots (18-11) led Williams (25-4) by as many as 12 points in the first half. They made only two three-pointers after halftime and got to the line just nine times in the game, however. Park Thomas led Gordon 15 points while Hans Miersma had 13 and 11 rebounds. Alex Carnes and Dom Paradis each had 10 in their second NCAA tournament game.

Gordon made history Friday night by winning the first NCAA tournament game in program history when they upset Babson, 76-68. Carnes scored 20 in that game to get the job done while Thomas had 15 and Paradis and Jason Dempsey each scored 12.

Johnson & Wales 83, Endicott 75: The Gulls finished 18-10, nine wins better than last season, after falling in the semi-finals of the ECAC tournament. John Henault had 13 points for lead Endicott while Andre Makris scored 12 and Greg Jacques chipped in 11.

Endicott won the ECAC D3 New England title for the first time program history as tournament MVP Samantha Crough sparked a 79-76 win over Smith in the championship game yesterday. Crough had 19 points and 11 rebound and teammate Jennifer White also scored 19 as the Gulls finished the season 23-7. Kelsey Cuddy scored 17 for Endicott and Kayleen Whall provided 16 points off the bench.

WOMEN’S COLLEGE LACROSSE

Gordon 14, Husson 4: The Scots (2-0) stayed unbeaten early in the season by scoring 10 unanswered goals in the first half. Anna Blomberg led Gordon with five goals, Stephanie Fitzgerald had four goals and one assist and Jessie Castelline had three goals and a pair of assists.
