Leaving it all on the floor, the CCSU men’s basketball team lost a heartbreaker 68-67 to Quinnipiac in what could have been a preview of the NEC tournament.
Despite yet another MVP performance from Ken Horton, the Blue Devils (18-9) couldn’t overcome the rest of the teams ineffectiveness on offense. It was Quinnipiac (19-8) 67, Horton 35 with the rest of Blue Devils chipping in 32 in what was CCSU’s final home game of the season.
It was a nail biter in a boring sort of way as the CCSU men’s basketball team hung on for a 57-56 victory over Sacred Heart.

Backed by an MVP-caliber performance from Ken Horton, the CCSU men’s basketball team routed conference opponent Bryant 71-55 Wednesday. Posting his NEC leading ninth double-double of the season, Horton led the Blue Devils (17-7) to its seventh straight victory. Horton led everybody with 23 points and 11 rebounds. While that would be enough to garner support for the NEC MVP award, Horton didn’t stop there. His six blocks and six steals may have put Horton as the leading candidate for the award, showing his ability to dominate a game on both sides of the court.

Even with Ken Horton’s 31 point performance, the CCSU men’s basketball team saw its five game win streak snapped when LIU defeated the Blue Devils 72-67.
The Blue Devils (10-7, 3-3 NEC) led for much of the game, but were unable to close it out. CCSU led up until the six minute mark of the second half when LIU (13-4, 5-1 NEC) went on an 11-0 run to overtake CCSU, sending the Blue Devils to its first home loss of the season.
