Junior Jared Suderley scored 32 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, and Hartwick College earned its fourth straight victory with an 83-68 non-conference men’s basketball triumph over visiting Morrisville on Saturday.
Kyle Bradley contributed 10 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and two steals for the Hawks, who improved to 5-2. Laurens graduate Aaron Laing finished with nine points and eight rebounds.
Peter Melanson’s nine-point effort included 4-for-4 shooting from the field for the Hawks, who led, 45-18, at halftime.
“We played a great first half and we were able to get up by a good amount in the first half and then hold off Morrisville in the second half,” Hartwick coach Todd McGuinness said in a media release by the school. “Jared played very well today and Kyle really controlled the second half.”
Hartwick closed the half on a 40-9 run that included a 27-2 spurt.
A jumper by Laing gave Hartwick a 58-28 lead with 13:23 left before Morrisville answered with a 12-2 run. Still, the Mustangs never cut their deficit under 15 points.
Hartwick will begin play in the Empire 8 Conference at 8 p.m. Tuesday when it hosts Utica.
