The College Report: Summit’s Killian Getting Offensive for Amherst

Credits: Amherst College

Amherst’s Tom Killian (Summit, Jr.) had more to say offensively in the Lord Jeffs’ two weekend men’s basketball victories than has customarily been the case this season. He scored 10 points in both home games, knocking down four of nine field goal attempts (two of six three-pointers) in Friday’s 80-70 victory over Bowdoin and four of eight (two of four from long range) in Saturday’s 98-75 win over Colby. He also collected five caroms in the Bowdoin game. Amherst moved to 15-2 overall and 5-0 in the New England Small College Athletic Conference.

Lycoming’s Patrick Dougher (Scotch Plains, Soph.) would not be denied in Saturday’s 92-87 overtime loss to Elizabethtown in Williamsport, Pa. He didn’t miss on four field goal attempts (three from outside the three-point arc) and two free throws, all of which added up to 13 points. The Warriors are now 12-5.

Stevens Tech improved to 14-1 and 7-0 in the Empire 8 with home victories over Nazareth, 74-64, on Friday and Houghton, 80-49, on Saturday. Russell Thompson (West Orange, Sr.) was co-high in the scoring column in the Nazareth win, posting 21 points on 7-of-14 shooting from the field (2-of-5 from three-point territory) and 5-of-6 at the foul line. Teammate Patrick Sabatino (Westfield, Soph.) scored 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting from the field (he made his lone three-point try) and one successful free throw. Stevens made more liberal use of its bench in the Houghton win, with Thompson and Sabatino getting breathers. Thompson scored 15 points (6-of-15 from the floor, 3-of-10 from the Weehawken border), while Sabatino was perfect on three field goal attempts and three foul shots, which was good for nine points.

Lamar Powell (West Orange, Jr.) led Bard in scoring in last weekend’s games, both played at the Raptors’ gym in Annandale-on-Hudson, N.Y. He scored 13 points in Friday’s 63-58 loss to Union on 6-of-10 shooting, including 1-of-4 from Donald Fagen’s old dorm room. Bard then lost to Skidmore, 65-48, on Saturday, with Powell contributing 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting (both three-point tries went in) and 1-of-2 from the foul line.

Andy Charles (West Orange, Jr.) was perfect on seven free throws in Centenary’s 69-63 road loss to Immaculata on Saturday.

Alex Rosenberg (Short Hills, Soph.) made all six of his free throws (four of which came in the game’s final 23 seconds) to help Columbia defeat Cornell, 67-58, in Ithaca, N.Y. on Friday. Rosenberg took only one shot from the field, which missed, and he finished the game with six points. The Lions are 9-6 overall and 1-0 in Ivy League action.

De’Vaughn Reid (West Orange, Soph.) saw very limited action for Holy Cross in the Crusaders’ 79-60 home win over American on Saturday, but in the minute he was on the floor, he was granted four free throws, of which he made three. The Cross is 10-8 overall and 2-1 in the Patriot League.

Duane Morgan (West Orange, Soph.) paced Adelphi with 11 points in Saturday’s 67-51 loss at home to Franklin Pierce. Morgan made four of nine shots from the field and three of four from the foul line. Six rebounds fell his way as the Panthers dropped to 8-9 overall and 5-6 in the Northeast-10.

Middlebury remained undefeated with a 66-47 home victory against Hamilton on Friday. Joey Kizel (Short Hills, Jr.) scored nine points for the winning side, putting three of five attempts from three-point range through the rim. The Panthers are 15-0 overall and 5-0 in the Nescac.

Lindsay Atchison (Green Village, Sr.) distributed a game-high eight assists as King’s College defeated Manhattanville, 74-56, at home on Saturday.

The Lady Monarchs ticked up to 12-4 overall and 5-1 in the Freedom Conference.

Kaitlyn Cresencia (New Providence, Soph.) came off the bench to score 12 points for Connecticut College in Friday’s 70-61 win over Bates in Lewiston, Maine. Four of her seven field goal attempts and all four of her free throws went through the hoop. She also had five rebounds and three assists. The Camels (7-10, 2-4 Nescac) then found out why Tufts is undefeated, suffering a 61-32 defeat to that rival on Saturday in Medford, Mass. Cresencia was the game’s leading rebounder, capturing eight ricochets.

Caroline Murphy (Chatham, Jr.) was the offensive engine for Gettysburg in Saturday’s 47-36 win at home over Haverford. She scored a game-high 18 points, sinking six of 12 field goal attempts, including her lone three-point try, and five of six free throws. Her nine rebounds and three rejections were both team highs for the Bullets (11-5, 8-3 Centennial Conference).

Monmouth left Brooklyn with a 63-62 win over LIU on Saturday, as Abigail Martin (Maplewood, Sr.) broke out of a slump. She scored 15 points on six of 11 shooting from the field and three of three from the foul line, and brought down a team-high eight rebounds. The Hawks are now 7-10 overall and 4-2 in the Northeast Conference.

Laura Gregory (New Providence, Soph.) got in for eight minutes of Muhlenberg’s 77-69 win over Washington (Md.) in Allentown, Pa. on Saturday.

Alyssa Polimeni (Berkeley Heights, Fr.) scored 11 points and came away with seven rebounds in a 57-53 loss for Ursinus to Swarthmore in Collegeville, Pa. on Saturday.
