Mass. College Sports: Saturday Basketball & Hockey Highlights

By Matt Noonan 

Most teams will enjoy a day of rest today, while others will compete. Here are a few highlights and notes from the past two days:

Basketball:

* Boston University’s women’s basketball team extended its winning streak to 11 games on Saturday with a victory against American East opponent Binghamton. The Terriers won 13 consecutive contests last season and certainly are on par for matching that record pending two more wins against Maine and New Hampshire.

* Behind 56 rebounds and 18 points off the bench, Babson College was able to defeat Smith College, 59-50 and remain undefeated in NEWMAC (New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic) conference play. With the win, Babson extended its conference-winning streak to 73 and has now defeated Smith in their last nine meetings.

* WPI’s men’s basketball team has won 16 consecutive games this season and picked up another conference win against Wheaton College. Sam Longwell recorded a game-high 22 points for the Engineers, a squad that’s currently 3-0 in the conference.

* Amherst College and Tufts University kept their perfect marks in tact with wins in the NESCAC (New England Small College Athletic Conference) this past weekend. The countdown for this particular showdown in Amherst is officially on.

* Bentley University’s women’s basketball team stretched its winning streak to 13 games, as the Falcons soared past Pace, 69-53. With the win, Bentley has now won 26 straight contests against East Region opponents.

Hockey:

* One of the biggest stories from Saturday was Babson College’s men’s ice hockey team upsetting the best team in the land. The Beavers topped Norwich University, 4-1 in Vermont, and picked up two important points in the ECAC East Hockey Conference.

* UMass Boston’s men’s ice hockey team rebounded from their loss on Friday to Norwich with an enormous win against St. Michaels. The Beacons have been a great story this season and certainly have a chance to climb out of third place with a few more wins.

* Something drastic must have happened in Steve Hoar’s locker room following Becker College’s 9-5 thumping a few weeks ago against Wentworth Institute of Technology. The Ice Hawks have won five of their last six games and preserved a one-goal lead yesterday against SUNY Potsdam, which earned the men’s ice hockey team their eighth victory of the season.

* I predicted that Boston College and New Hampshire were going to split their weekend series, and it happened. The Wildcats potted two goals against the Eagles to improve to 14-4-2.

* Haley Skarupa tallied five points in Boston College’s win against Vermont by tallying three goals and two assists. The freshman forward has recorded 37 points this season, 18 goals and 19 assists.

* Harvard’s women’s ice hockey team earned a convincing conference win on Saturday, as they defeated Quinnipiac, 4-0. Harvard is now 13-1-1 overall and 11-0 in ECAC Women’s Hockey.

Mass. College Hockey: Leftovers From WNEC’s 3-2 Victory Against Becker

By Matt Noonan 

Western New England College’s men’s ice hockey team captured their fourth ECAC Northeast Hockey conference victory against Becker College on Wednesday, and below are a few leftover thoughts from the game.

Becker’s Power Play Struggles: After their win against Nichols College in the Worcester City Shootout Tournament last weekend, Don Kane told me that the Ice Hawks were focused on capitalizing on power play opportunities. Unfortunately, though, the Ice Hawks finished the game 1-of-7 with the extra skater.

WNEC netted two goals on five power plays, which proved to be the difference.

The Ice Hawks will have a few days to address this issue before they return to the ice on Saturday for a critical game against Wentworth Institute of Technology.

The Play Of Tim Carr: WNEC’s goaltender Tim Carr picked up his third win last night between the pipes. And despite allowing two goals, he made some fantastic saves with his glove and pads, which frazzled the Ice Hawks offense.

Through three games this season Carr has faced 102 shots and saved 98 of them. Expect to see more of the sophomore going forward, especially if his superb play continues.

Points In The Standings: With the win, WNEC improves to 4-0 in conference play and 5-2 overall. They also picked up two more points and now have eight in the standings.

Becker has defeated a conference foe (Nichols College) in tournament play, but that didn’t count toward their actual conference record. They have yet to register a win in the ECAC Northeast and desperately need one.

Graham’s Great Effort: One of the biggest takeaways from this game was the effort displayed by Becker’s David Graham. The senior forward was spotted all over the ice and assisted his team on numerous offensive rushes.

However, his biggest contribution came at 6:50 in the third period when he followed his shot from the far circle, which bounced off Carr’s pads. The puck then landed in front of the netminder, which allowed Graham the opportunity to rush the net and score his sixth goal of the season.

Other Notes: Becker and WNEC each fired 30 shots on net. The Ice Hawks recorded 14 penalty minutes compared to the Golden Bears’ 18.

Becker’s Greg Hussey saved 27 shots in the loss and now has a record of 2-4 between the pipes.
