Trevis Wyche
The Saint Peter's University men's basketball team capped off a historic postseason run with yet another story-book ending tonight. The Peacocks survived a frantic conclusion to the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament (CIT) championship with a game-winning, last-second free throw by senior Trevis Wyche (6'1''-G-95). Saint Peter's can now celebrate its first-ever national postseason tournament title of any kind with a 62-61 victory over Texas A&M University Corpus Christi on the Islanders' home court. It looked like Saint Peter's (23-13) would wrap it up when Cavon Baker (6'1''-G-93) went to the free throw line with a two-point lead. But he missed the second shot to keep the score at 61-58. Cole Martinez (6'2''-G-93) took advantage for Texas A&M (24-12), drawing three free throws and sinking all three to make it 61-61 with three seconds to play. After advancing the ball past midcourt and calling timeout, head coach John Dunne drew up the perfect play to get Wyche a look inside. He drew the foul and sank the first free throw to put his team ahead for good. He missed the second, but with under a second remaining, the game was already over. Saint Peter's Quadir Welton (6'8''-C/F-95) was named the tournament MVP after recording another double-double with 12 points, a team-high 13 rebounds, a steal and a block. Wyche, a former standout at St. Peter's Prep, finished with 11 points to go along with four boards, three assists and two steals. Baker poured in a team-high 15 points. Saint Peter's took an early 3-2 lead on a Nick Griffin three-pointer before the Islanders jumped back out in front for nearly the remainder of the first half. They rattled off a 9-0 run, capped off by a Joseph Kilgore jumper, to take an 11-3 lead. The Peacocks' Chazz Patterson (6'3''-G) later cut the lead down to five, but Rashawn Thomas (6'8''-F-94) rattled off a 7-0 run by himself to put Texas A&M back in front, 23-11. But that's when the Peacocks went to work with a huge 15-0 surge to take back the lead, 26-23. Welton got things started with six straight points, Quinn Taylor (6'4''-G/F-98) and Baker converted back-to-back layups, Wyche tied it with a jumper and Sam Idowu regained the lead with a three-pointer. It wouldn't last long, as Ehab Amin responded with a three of his own on the next play, and Kilgore sank a jumper with under a minute remaining in the half to put the Islanders ahead 28-26. In the first half, Saint Peter's held the lead for only 40 seconds to the Texas A&M's nearly-18 minutes. Thomas had a huge game for the Islanders, scoring a game-high 20 points to go along with 13 rebounds and three steals. Texas A&M came out firing after halftime, leading by as much as eight points on two different occasions. But the Peacocks were never far behind, staying within striking distance the whole time. Antwon Portley (6'4''-G-96) put Saint Peter's back on top for the first time in nearly 13 minutes of game time, converting a layup to make it 46-45 with just under nine minutes remaining. Besides an absolute blowout victory in the semifinals at home -- the first national postseason tournament game ever hosted by the Jersey City school -- the Peacocks had to come from behind in every round of the tournament. They advanced to the semifinals after erasing a 17-point deficit, their largest comeback of the season, to defeat Texas State University, 49-44, in the quarterfinals. In the first round, Saint Peter's trailed by almost 10 points late to the University of Albany, but again found a way to win with a 59-55 victory.
