Eagles claw Hornets
BANGOR, Maine - In a game that, for much of the first half, felt a lot closer than Husson's double-digit leads, all five Husson starters scored in double-digits to lead the Eagles to their first conference victory of the season, a 102-61 decision over Lyndon.
The Eagles' Daeshawn McMorrin scored a game-high 18 points, going 7-for-11 from the floor and shooting 4-for-4 from the free-throw line. The Eagle's quick lineup was able to cause turnovers for the Hornets which resulted in easy fast break points in transition or from the foul line. Husson held Lyndon to just under 34 percent shooting from the floor throughout the game which in turn helped the Eagles fast-paced offense.
D.J. Santos (Milton, Mass.) and O'Bee Byrd (Waterbury, Conn.) had 10 points each to lead the Hornets while Antonio Mena (Central Falls, R.I.) and Jason Gray (East Thetford, Vt.) chipped in six rebounds and two blocked shots, respectively. Santos also had a team-high three assists in the contest.
