The Blue Devils men’s basketball team remains undefeated in conference play after two games. The 82-80 win over the Sacred Heart Pioneers was secured in the final seconds of a five minute overtime situation last Saturday in Detrick Gymnasium.
With a 34 point drubbing of in-state rival University of Hartford, CCSU extended its winning streak to three behind their best overall performance of the year.
Saturday’s meeting against the in-state CCSU (3-2, 0-0 NEC) rivals was the 41st between the two schools, and the first time the Hawks (0-6) have come to Detrick Gymnasium since 1994. In last season’s meeting in the Connecticut 6, the Blue Devils scraped out a 64-62 win, but this was all about a strong CCSU team.
Horton is the leader of the CCSU squad that enters the 2012 season predicted to finish third in the NEC. At practice last Thursday, Horton went 9-12 from three-point range, and 18-28 overall. The 6-foot-6 senior from Ossining, NY is carrying a lot of baggage, however.
It was the tale of two halves as the CCSU Men’s Basketball Team (14-7) withstood Wagner’s (10-11) furious onslaught to come out on top 75-71.
The CCSU men’s basketball team overcame two separate double digit deficits and a closely contested final minute to defeat Hartford University 64-62 at Mohegan Sun Arena.
Despite being outscored in the paint 34 to 12 and outrebounded 39 to 31, CCSU made big plays that allowed the team to come out on top.
