LAST TIME OUT
Michael Hagopian secured his spot among Suffolk men's basketball elite Tuesday night at Lasell as the senior eclipsed the 1,000-point milestone. The grand marker was not enough, however, as the Rams fell to the Lasers, 68-64, in non-conference action at the Athletic Center.
Suffolk dipped to 3-4 on the season after falling at Lasell, 68-64, Thursday night. Three of the Rams' four setbacks have been decided by four points or fewer.
Thomas Duffy and Brendan Mulson have been consistent contributors on both ends of the hardwood as the Rams' season nears the midway point. Duffy has team-leading numbers in points (18.1) and assists (4.0) per game, while the junior guard sits third on the glass with 4.4 rpg. Mulson, meanwhile, is top on the team in boards (6.3 rpg) and second on the squad in points (14.3 ppg). Michael Hagopian chips in 10.4 ppg to the offense with Steven DiPrizio pitching in 4.6 rpg.
Lesley has yet to find its way in the win column this year as the Lynx head into Thursday's tilt 0-6.
The Lynx' 59.7 ppg offense is paced by a trio in double figure scorers in Joey Martin (16.5 ppg), Chase Howard (14.5 ppg) and Treyvon Trent (13.7 ppg).
Martin is also the leader on the glass with 6.2 rpg to anchor Lesley's 30.3 rpg effort. Howard is once again second on the squad with 4.8 rpg, with Tristen Reese's 4.3 rpg rounding out the top three carom collectors.
