Skidmore captures 2019 Liberty League title - Feb 27, 2019

The Skidmore College men's basketball team has once again climbed to the top of the Liberty League mountain, winning its fifth Liberty League Championship after a 82-66 victory over Hobart, held at the Williamson Sports Center Sunday afternoon.
The Thoroughbreds have won seven games in a row, improving to 19-7 on the season. They earn the league's automatic bid into the upcoming NCAA Division III Championship Tournament, and will await their opponent at 1 p.m. on Monday. Skidmore also earns the season series against Hobart with its second win in three tries. The Statesmen finish their season with a 17-11 record.
Senior guard Edvinas Rupkus (6'4''-G-96) led the team in scoring with 22 points, shooting 8-for-13 from the field (3-of-5 from 3-point range). Sophomore guard Noah Meren (6'5''-G) earned Liberty League Most Outstanding Player honors, scoring 18 points, adding six rebounds, eight assists, and two steals. Senior guard Chase Ta (6'2''-G) was aggressive from the start, adding 14 points, four rebounds, four assists, and four steals. Freshman center Greg Skoric (6'10''-C) added 10 rebounds and two blocked shots. The Thoroughbreds also got production from their bench, as junior guard Pat Gallagher (6'4''-F) added nine points (3-of-3 from 3-point range). Skidmore shot 54.5 percent from the field in the game, including 66.7 percent (16-of-24) in the second half.
Colin Dougherty (6'4''-G) led Hobart with 15 points. Jamal Lucas added 13 points and six rebounds.
"I'm extremely proud of this team," said head coach Joe Burke , "They really earned it. Our goal every October is to be the best team we can be in February and we are playing basketball at a very high level right now. I will comment more over the next few days but I am just so happy for this group it's hard to put into words."
It was a slow start for both teams with just six points from each in the first seven minutes of regulation. Hobart took a brief 9-6 lead on a Tucker Lescoe (6'1''-G) 3-pointer, but that wouldn't last long. Sophomore guard Ty Lamport (6'4''-G) hit a running jumper on the other end, then Gallagher picked Hobart's Edens Fluizard on the ensuing possession, setting up a Ta 3-pointer to give Skidmore the 11-9 lead. It was the spark of an 11-2 run that gave Skidmore a 17-11 lead midway through the half.
Hobart worked to take another lead at 18-17, but it would be the last lead for the Statesmen. A second Ta 3-pointer sparked a 17-6 spurt over the final 7:44 of the half, as Skidmore took a 10-point, 34-24 lead into halftime.
The Statesmen made it a game coming out of the break, scoring six of the first eight points to bring the deficit down to six. Skidmore buckled down and went on a massive 19-5 run in 4:02, capped off by the and-one basket by Rupkus as Skidmore held a 20-point, 55-35 lead.
Hobart wouldn't get any closer than 14 the rest of the way with consecutive thefts and baskets by Meren and Ta sealing the deal for the Thoroughbreds in the victory.
