Gators Get Fifth Win of the Season

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – The Pine Manor men's basketball team led nearly wire-to-wire as it earned its fifth win of the season, knocking off Fisher, 71-54 on Saturday afternoon at Brunelli Court in Chestnut Hill, Mass.

The Gators run their record to 5-13, while Fisher falls to 7-14.

KEY CONTRIBUTORS

  • Sophomore Sayvonn Houston (Brockton, Mass.) lead all scorers with 19 points coming off the bench for the Gators.
  • Senior Ellis Reid (Hartford, Conn.) recorded a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds.
  • Junior Shaun Miller (Hyde Park, Mass.) and senior Rasheed Bell (Dorchester, Mass.) were the only two other PMC student-athletes in double-figures. Miller dropped 17 points, while Bell had 11.
  • Junior point guard Steven Collins (Lynn, Mass.) had a game-high eight assists.

FOR THE FALCONS

  • Lumpkins also had 10 rebounds for a double-double.
  • Senior Kyle Snowden (Santa Cruz, Calif.) had a team-leading four assists.

 

RECAP

The Gators opened the game with a 10-4 run capped off by a three-pointer from Bell at the five-minute mark of the contest.

Fisher was able to chip away at the lead and finally overtake the hosts about halfway through the first stanza as a Lumpkins layup gave the Falcons a 13-12 lead. However, this would be the only lead the guests would have the entire afternoon.

Pine Manor got the lead right back with a three-ball from Jamel Hamans (Meriden, Conn.), followed by a 13-2 run over the next five minutes. PMC went into the break leading 33-26.

After the break, Fisher tried to work its way back into the game closing the gap to two at 38-36 as a result of an Anthony Lewis (Lodi, Calif.) layup.

However, the Gators refused to relent. Houston scored 13 of his game-high 19 points in the second half and three-pointers from Shaun Miller (Hyde Park, Mass.), Jalen Bruce, and Bell put the game out of reach.
