SIDE LINES: 11/19/14

The women’s basketball team opened their season this past weekend as they hosted Lehigh University in the MAC. Playing with home court advantage, the Hawks were unable to secure their first victory as they fell to Lehigh, 82-70.

Despite the score, many individual efforts were noteworthy. Junior guard Sarah Olson had a game-high of 18 points and made six three-pointers in the process. Sophomore forward Christina Mitchell matched her career high had eigh rebounds and 14 points, junior guard Jasmine Walker had nine points, junior guard Jamiyah Bethune had a team-high nine rebounds and contributed six points, and sophomore Jenny Horvatinovic scored 11 points and made three steals. The team will next travel to Brooklyn, NY to play against LIU Brooklyn on Thursday, Nov. 20.

The men’s basketball team was handed their first loss of the season this past Friday courtesy of West Virginia University. Although the Hawks led most of the second hald, they were unable to hault WVU’s late run and the final score was 64-54.

Junior guard Deon Jones tallied 14 points for the Hawks while senior guard Andrew Nicholas also posted a double digit game with 10 points. Sophomore guard Justin Robinson had nine points on the night and three steals.

Collectively, the Hawks went 18-for-22 from the free three line while their opponent went 22-for-34.

The Hawks look for redemption as they prepare for the CBE Hall of Fame Classic, a three game stint held at the MAC this weekend.
