Sophomore Scores 34 Points in Rams Basketball Victory

2/9/2011

Sophomore Colin Halpin scored a career-high 34 points to lead the Suffolk University Men's Basketball team (6-14, 4-9 GNAC) past the Norwich University Cadets (11-8, 7-5 GNAC), 72-62 on Tuesday evening at the Regan Gymnasium.

The win snaps the Cadets six-game winning streak as Suffolk picks up its fourth win of the season in Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) play, and sixth overall.

Sophomore Matt Pepdjonovic recorded his 12th double-double of the season, scoring 13 points and adding 19 rebounds, along with five assists.

Suffolk took a slim one-point lead into the half at 31-30 as Halpin scored 16 points in 12 minutes of action before departing in the first half with an ankle injury.

Halpin would return to start the second half and led the Rams on a seven-point run that was capped with a three-pointer that gave the Rams their first double digit lead of the game, 43-33 two and a half minutes into the half.

Halpin would go on a tear in the first six minutes of action in the second half scoring 16 of the Rams' 20 points to build their largest lead of the game at 51-38.

Suffolk will head south to Providence to take on the Wildcats of Johnson & Wales in GNAC action at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
