Florida Gulf Coast Crushes Fairleigh Dickinson

Florida Gulf Coast raced out to an early 11-0 in their First Four game against Fairleigh Dickinson and never looked back in a 96-65 win. The Eagles were led by Marc Eddy Norelia’s double-double of 20 points and 10 rebounds. Norelia only missed one field goal.

Florida Gulf Coast started with that 11-0 run and parlayed that into an insurmountable 40-19 halftime lead. The Eagles dominated on the glass in the first half with a 27-17 margin and shot 16 of 27 (59.3%) from the field. They held FDU to 6 of 28 shooting (21.4%) and Norelia went 7 of 7 from the field for 14 points. FDU’s top scorers were Earl Potts Jr. and Darian Anderson with six points apiece.

The second half started well for FDU as they opened with six straight points, but they could not find any defense as they were unable to cut any further into the deficit. The Knights shot much better in the second half at 40.5% (17 of 42), but the lack of defense allowed Florida Gulf Coast to continue to pile on the points. Potts led FDU in the second half with 10 points while FGCU was led by Julian Debose (11 points) and Christian Terrell (1o points).

Fairleigh Dickinson finishes the season 18-15 after winning the Northeast Conference Tournament. Potts led the team with 16 points and 8 rebounds while Marques Townes had 13 points and Anderson finished with 11 points and 8 rebounds. The Knights shot 23 of 70 for the game (32.9%) including 8 of 23 from beyond the arc (34.8%). They struggled from the free throw line going 11 of 18.

Florida Gulf Coast is now 21-13 and will face the top seeded North Carolina Tar Heels on Thursday at 7:20 PM Eastern Time in the East Regional. Norelia’s 20 points was best on the team, but Terrell (14), Debose (14), and Demetris Morant (10 points) also finished in double figures. Antravious Simmons nearly had a double-double with 9 points and 11 rebounds. The Eagles finished 34 of 57 from the floor (59.6%) and 8 of 23 from three point range (34.8%). They shot horrendously from the free throw line in the first half (6 of 17 for 35.3%), but went 14 of 17 in the second half (82.4%).

Ivy League Basketball Roundup: 12/4/2014

Below is the Ivy League Basketball Roundup for Thursday, December 4, 2014. A bevy of 6 Ivy League teams were in action – Brown, Penn, Dartmouth, Harvard, Yale, and Princeton.


Brown Struggles At Home In Loss To American

 Jesse Reed’s 22 points and 8 rebounds were enough for American to send Brown to a 66-49 loss.

The final score was not indicative of how the game started. Both teams started well, but Brown took a 17-9 before American surged back with a 9-0 run and an 18-17 lead with over 8 minutes left in the first half. The rest of the half was back and forth with American taking a 29-28 lead at the break.

Jesse Reed led American with 10 points in the first half on 4 of 6 shooting. The Eagles shot 48% from the field, hit 1 of 5 three pointers (20%), and hit 80% of free throws. The Eagles committed only 4 turnovers in the first half. Brown was led by Cedric Kuakumensah with 12 points. The Bears hit 40% of their shots and hit 3 of 10 three pointers (30%). Brown out-rebounded American 17 to 13 and committed 7 turnovers.

The first half was even for 7 minutes, but then American took over. American led 38-35 with 13:18 with the Eagles completely taking over for the rest of the second half. They held Brown to just 14 points over the next 13 minutes while putting up 28 of their own.

Reed led American with 12 second half points and 5 rebounds. The Eagles hit 52.4% of their shots and went 4 of 6 from beyond the arc (66.7%).

Penn Finally Gets First Win

Penn had a monster first half that provided them enough cushion to get the win over Navy. The Quakers won 57-46 on the road.

Neither team had an advantage at the second TV timeout with the score tied at 10-10, but Penn would take command shortly thereafter. Penn went on a 9-2 run to take a 19-12 lead before blowing the game wide open. 3 of the next 4 buckets for the Quakers were three pointers and that provided them with a 30-19 lead. The Quakers finished off the half with an 8-2 run and a 38-21 halftime lead.

The second half was not nearly as fast-paced. At the first TV timeout, Penn led 47-28 while the second TV timeout provided a score of 49-32, meaning that only 6 points were scored in 4 minutes. Navy continued to chip away at the deficit and made it single digits at 52-44 with 5:25 remaining in the game. However, the Midshipmen struggled from the field for the rest of the game making just one bucket and not putting pressure on the Quakers to make their free throws.

Penn was led by Tony Hicks‘ 14 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 assists. Darien Nelson-Henry had a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds. Darnell Foreman chipped in 9 points. The Quakers hit 21 of 45 from the field (46.7%) and made 5 of 14 three pointers (35.7%). They made 1o of 15 free throws (66.7%), out-rebounded Navy 36-31, had 16 assists, and committed 16 turnovers.

Navy had no scorers in double digits. Zach Fong and Edward Alade both finished with 8 points. Navy went 18 of 53 from the field (34%) and hit 5 of 23 three pointers (31.7%). They went 5 of 13 from the free throw line (38.5%) and committed 14 turnovers.

Penn (1-5) finally won their first game after starting the season with 5 losses. They travel to face Binghamton (1-7) 0n Saturday. Navy (2-6) faces their first of back-to-back Military institutions in the Citadel (3-4) on Saturday. Navy faces VMI on Tuesday.


Dartmouth Loses Close Battle For Second Straight Game

This is not a trend Dartmouth wants to see. For the second time in as many games, Dartmouth has lost a close match. On Sunday, it was New Hampshire and Wednesday it was Longwood. Longwood’s Quincy Taylor accounted for nearly 50% of his teams points (34) in their 74-73 win over Dartmouth.

Longwood quickly got out to a 10-1 lead, but Dartmouth erased that deficit and then some by the second TV timeout. They went on a 15-0 run to lead 16-10. The lead was cut to as little as three pointers, but the Big Green used a strong 11-6 run to lead 42-31 at the break.

The second half began remarkably similar to the first half. Longwood went on a 9-3 run to start the half and trailed 45-10 at the first TV timeout. Despite the solid start, Dartmouth built the lead back up to 63-54. In a three minute span, Longwood cut the deficit back down to one at 64-63 with 4 minutes left in the game. Longwood even trailed 73-66 with a minute left, but then the wheels fell off for Dartmouth.

The comeback would be done unconventionally for a team down by 7 points. The Lancers hit 6 free throws and and a layup to pull the stunning comeback. Quincy Taylor hit two free throws with 6 seconds left and Alex Mitola could not hit his shot to save the Big Green.

Miles Wright led Dartmouth off the bench with 15 points on 6 of 9 shooting. Malik Gill had a double-double with 14 points and 10 assists while Connor Boehm had 14 points and 7 rebounds. Alex Mitola scored 10 points. The Big Green shot 27 of 48 from the field (56.3%) and hit 8 of 18 three pointers (44.4%). They went 11 of 19 free throws (57.9%), had 16 assists, and committed 11 turnovers. Dartmouth out-rebounded Longwood 28-24.

Quincy Taylor had 34 points on 13 of 18 shooting including making 5 of 7 three pointers. Shaquille Johnson contributed a solid 18 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists. The Lancers went 23 of 45 from the field (51.1%) and hit 9 of 21 three pointers (42.9%). They went 19 of 24 from the free throw line (79.2%) and committed only 9 turnovers.

Dartmouth (1-4) will play their next game at home on Saturday against Maine (1-5). Longwood (3-5) faces Tennessee-Martin (4-2) on the road on Saturday.
