Bronner helps Wildcats
Sophomore Jordon Bronner of Sleepy Hollow had seven assists and three points as the University of New Hampshire men’s basketball team defeated Binghamton University, 64-49, at the Events Center in Vestal.
Bronner, a graduate of Iona Prep, also had three rebounds and three steals as the Wildcats raised their record to 7-11 overall and 2-5 in America East play.
Bronner, who made the America East all-rookie team a year ago, helped UNH open a33-23 lead at the break when he blocked a shot and set up Chris Matagrano of Sayreville, NJ, for a layup.
The Bearcats fell to 0-19 all told, 0-7 in the league.
Bronner and the Wildcats are back in action when they host the University of Maine (8-10) on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Lundholm Gymnasium in Durham.
As the Crow rolls
Westchester Community College kegler Britanya Crow, an alumna of Blessed Sacrament HS in New Rochelle, averaged 166 over six games at the Suffolk Tournament at AMF Bayshore Lanes. Crow finished 10th in the all-events as the Vikings’ women’s team finished sixth in the tournament.
Walker, Bonnies look for more
Junior Alaina Walker of Pomona continues to play an integral role in helping the high-riding women’s basketball team at St. Bonaventure University.
The Brown and White are off to a program-best 18-2 start and is the lone undefeated team in the A-10 at 5-0. The Bonnies have won seven straight games, and their 8-0 road record is the best in the nation.
Walker, perhaps the team’s finest defensive player, usually draws the opposition’s biggest offensive threat. But the Albertus Magnus alumna is not merely a defensive genius; she is also averaging eight points per game, with second-best totals in steals (18), blocked shots (eight) and assists (32).
Walker and the Bonnies return home to the Reilly Center to host Saint Joseph’s on Wednesday at 7 p.m. on Bob Lanier Court.
The Hawks (13-5 overall, 3-1 A-10) were picked to finish fifth in the league in preseason voting.
The men’s and women’s basketball teams at Dominican College in Orangeburg will be in Philadelphia tonight to meet their counterparts from Chestnut Hill College.
Coach Joe Clinton’s men’s team (9-6) is scheduled at 7 p.m., following the 5 p.m. game featuring Coach Bill Diener’s women’s team (7-6).
The non-conference women’s game scheduled Jan. 23 at Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry has been reset for Feb. 6 at 5:30 p.m.
