Following Conference losses to Endicott and Roger Williams, the Scots bounced back with victories over Wentworth and UNE to move to 11-6 in the CCC. Forward Garrisson Duvivier ’19 has led the team in scoring for six straight games, averaging 21.0 ppg. Jake Haar ’19 continues to lead the CCC in 3-pt percentage (54.8%). A win over Salve Regina in the regular season finale gave them home-court in the first round of the playoffs (Feb. 21, vs. Wentworth). The Scots battled against Wentworth, and while they were able to tie with five minutes left in the second half, the Scots fell short, the final score 82-75.
