Strong Second Half Gives Trinity Men’s Basketball Season Opening Win over Norwich

Strong Second Half Gives Trinity Men’s Basketball Season Opening Win over Norwich

Hartford, Conn. –  Senior tri-captain forward Luke MacDougall (Baldwinsville, N.Y.) totaled 14 points, eight rebounds, and three assists, and classmate Brian Ford (Bronx, N.Y.) finished with a team-high 17 points to lead the Trinity College Bantams to a 77-50 win over the Norwich University Cadets in the Golden Bears Hoop Classic at Western New England College this evening.  The season-opening win gives the Bantams a ticket to the championship game of the tournament tomorrow, at a time yet to be determined.

Trinity senior co-captain Jarrod Pimm (Chelmsford, Mass) scored 13 points and collected five rebounds in the game, while freshman Kevin Lubin (Winnetka, Ill.) had a strong all-around performance in his collegiate debut, picking up eight points, three rebounds, three assists, and three steals in 21 minutes of action.      

Trinity, which led 31-28 at the half, shot 55 percent from the floor, while holding the Cadets to just 28 percent shooting on the evening, and just 15 percent shooting in the second half.  Trinity outscored Norwich 46-22 in the second half.  Trinity will face the winner of tonight’s matchup between Lesley University and host Western New England College, at a time yet to be determined.
