Hartwick men win fourth straight


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.

Fredonia 72, O-State 66

But Fredonia (2-3, 1-1) scored the next 15 points en route to outscoring O-State, 41-29, in the second half. Fredonia went 10-for-22 from three-point range.

Zuvic went 10-for-15 from the field, including 3 of 3 from three-point range. Sophomores Zach Mager and Frankie Kelly had 11 and 10 points, respectively, for O-State. Kelly and Zuvic grabbed eight rebounds apiece.

The Red Dragons will host Skidmore at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
