School-record threes push William and Mary to win

william and maryThe William and Mary men’s basketball team connected on a school-record tying 16 3-pointers and dished out 28 assists in upending Delaware, 94-79, on Thursday night at the Bob Carpenter Center.

Leading by four at the half, W&M (14-6, 6-3 CAA) scored the first eight points of the second half and held a double-digit advantage for the majority of the final 20 minutes in handing the Blue Hens (5-15, 0-9 CAA) their 12th-straight loss. It marked the fifth time in W&M history, and third under head coachTony Shaver, that the Tribe hit 16 3-pointers, while the 28 assists were the most by a CAA team this season and the second-most in program annals.

Sophomore David Cohn continued his strong play, tallying a career-high 23 points to go with nine assists. He was 7-of-12 from the field, including 5-of-9 from 3-point range. Classmate Connor Burchfield busted the Blue Hens zone defense, connecting on all six of his 3-point attempts in the opening 20 minutes and scored 18 points on the night. Junior Omar Prewitt turned in a nice all-around stat line with 18 points, five rebounds, a career-high tying six assists and two blocked shots, and senior Terry Tarpey just missed a double-double with 16 points and a team-high nine rebounds.

The Tribe returns home for a regionally televised game with James Madison (16-6, 6-3 CAA) on Sunday night. The contest is slated for a 7 p.m. from Kaplan Arena and will be televised on Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic, Philadelphia, California and Northwest as well as SportsNet New York. Fans can also watch the broadcast online at CAA.TV (subject to online blackout in certain areas).

Tribe fans can also catch the men’s basketball action over the Tribe Radio Network with Jay Colley and Charlie Woollum on the call. The Tide 92.3 FM and 107.9 Bach FM are the flagship stations of the Tribe Radio Network and the audio is also available over the Web at TribeAthletics.com.
