Mountaineers mount win over Bobcats

By Kevin Lo

(HAMDEN, Conn.) – Despite a strong lead, the Quinnipiac Bobcats men’s basketball team fell to Mount St. Mary’s 60-42, dropping to 8-12 (4-6 NEC) on the year. The defending NEC Tournament Champion Mountaineers improve to 12-9 (7-3 NEC).

Justin Rutty recorded his third straight double-double, 12 points and 16 rebounds, and James Feldeine pitched in with 11 points of his own.

Despite an early 10-point lead and a back and forth first half, Quinnipiac was unable to hold the lead after the 6:39 mark. A Mounts’ run at the 3:29 mark eventually lead to a six-point lead at the half, 29-23.

Quinnipiac was outscored 31-19 in the second half. The Mounts’ size and athleticism caused problems on Quinnipiac’s offensive end, leading to several turnovers.

Quinnipiac came out sloppy in the second. A Quinnipiac turnover led to a wide open three and a 32-23 deficit.

The Bobcats made several attempts to cut at the led but at the 15 minute mark the Mounts had stretched the lead to 41-28, and never looked back.

At the five minute mark the Mounts led 50-35, eventually finishing the game 60-42.

The Mounts bench helped spur the rally early. Will Holland chipped in with nine of the bench and Jeremy Goode finished with 19 for the Mounts.

The Mountaineers were far better than the Bobcats from beyond the three-point arc, (7-19) to (2-10), as well as from the charity stripe hitting 91.7 percent (11-12) to Quinnipiacs’ 46.2 percent (6-13).

The Bobcats will host Long Island Saturday. Opening tip is scheduled for 2 p.m. at the TD Banknorth Sports Center.
