Suffolk improved to 7-5 on the season and 2-1 in GNAC play, the Rams best start to conference action in the Jeff Juron era and since the 2014-15 season.
Suffolk's success is thanks in large part to its 72.7 ppg offensive output with the Rams defense holding their opponents to 68.0 ppg.
Thomas Duffy continues to impress on both ends of the hardwood with the sophomore leading the way offensively with 17.1 ppg and 3.7 apg to go along with a 4.2 rpg and 1.3 spg defensive effort. Michael Hagopian joins Duffy in double digits in scoring with the junior guard recording 14.3 ppg. In his first season in blue-and-gold, Brendan Mulson contributes on both sides of the play with 9.8 ppg and a team-best 5.8 rpg.
Regis saw its two-game win streak come to an end Thursday night as the Pride fell at Norwich, 71-63, to slip to 6-7 on the season and 3-2 in conference contests.
The Pride's 70.8 ppg is anchored by an 11.8 ppg effort by Ademola Afonja. The junior forward is the lone Regis player to average double figures with Tim Broom (9.8 ppg), Roger Hamel (9.6 ppg) and Jordan Seldon (9.3 ppg) all on the verge.
Afonja is the main threat on the glass as well for the Pride with 8.0 rpg to his credit. Juvens Dalger and Shawn Wedderburn add 5.5 rpg and 5.3 rpg, respectively, to the team.
