ST. THOMAS AQUINAS 69 SAINT ROSE 66

Justin Reyes converted the go-ahead 3-point play with 1:41 to go and fifth-seeded St. Thomas Aquinas nailed seven straight free throws down the stretch in holding off former NAIA and CACC rival Saint Rose in snowy Syracuse to capture its first NCAA East Regional championship, punching its ticket to next week's Elite-8 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The Spartans - who have now won nine straight and become the first non-NE10 team ever to go 7-0 vs. that power conference in a season - used their pressure to open up a 12-2 lead just over two minutes into the contest before going over six minutes without scoring another point. The Golden Knights - who struggled from the floor all game (39% compared to STAC's 46%) - could not draw even the rest of the period and saw a 34-26 halftime deficit extend to a game-high 42-30 gap after a Chaz Watler 3-pointer early in the second half. Tyler Sayre then rattled off 11 of his 26 points during a 21-4 Saint Rose attack that saw the #3 seed grab its largest lead - 51-46 - after a Chris Dorgler triple with 9:56 left. Aquinas battled back to force ties at 56 and 60 before a Dorgler lay-up gave the Knights their last lead at 62-60 with 2:07 remaining. Reyes responded with his huge 'And-1' 26 seconds later, then added two more foul shots at the 1:04 mark following a missed Jack Jones trey, giving the Spartans a 65-62 advantage. Dorgler scored again to make it a one-point game but James Mitchell was sent to the line and sank both of his attempts with 32 seconds to play, restoring the three-point margin at 67-64. Dorgler misfired on a tying 3-point attempt, but Jones (four points off the bench) followed it home with 18 seconds on the clock to make things tight yet again. Mitchell was fouled once more and connected twice to provide the final points as a deep 3-point try to tie by Mical-Ryan Boyd (six points) was off the mark just before the final horn. Reyes - who was named regional MVP - amassed 26 points, 13 rebounds and four blocked shots for the winners, who also landed Watler (15 points, 4-5 from beyond the arc) and Shaq McFarlan (11 in a reserve role) in double figures. Sayre notched 18 of his 26 points after intermission while pulling down seven rebounds in his final collegiate contest, finishing as the program's #4 all-time scorer (1,825). Fellow lefty senior Dorgler bowed out with 12 points, seven boards and four assists for the Golden Knights, who won the glass (36-31) and outscored STAC 12-5 on second chances, to no avail. The loss was the first for Saint Rose in four NCAA regional finals (they won in 1996, 1998 and 1999), and this was the first all-New York regional championship match-up since Saint Rose outlasted then-NYCAC foe Adelphi, 72-67, at UAlbany in 1999. St. Thomas Aquinas will be seeded seventh in the national quarterfinals and will take on second-seeded and NABC #1 Northwest Missouri State at 6 pm next Wednesday at the Sanford Pentagon. The other games feature Fairmont State (WV) vs. Rollins (FL), Bellarmine (KY) vs. Colorado School of Mines and Lincoln Memorial (TN) vs. Chico State (CA). St. Thomas Aquinas will try to snap a 28-year dry spell for our region since Lowell won the 1988 National Championship.

Charges bounce back from loss to Bloomfield with win over Concordia - 6 days ago
The Chargers traveled to Concordia College in hopes to bounce back from their first loss of the season to Bloomfield. Dominican fell for the first time in their first six games and it was their first loss in the conference. The Clippers were also looking for their first conference win against the Chargers in Tuesday.

Pitt-Johnstown bounces back with win over Carlow - 14 days ago
Pitt-Johnstown senior Isaac Vescovi (6'6''-F) scored 18 points, including eight during a span of 1 minute, 13 seconds as the Mountain Cats pulled away from Carlow University 93-67 on Tuesday night. Vescovi's point total wasn't unusual. The 6-foot-6 Cambria Heights High School graduate averaged 22.2 points a game. The fact that he scored those points off the bench and during only 13 minutes of playing time on the new Sports Center floor, however, was significant. 'Our last game we had a lo...   [read more]
