Men’s basketball wins season opener

The men’s basketball team defeated Mount St. Mary’s 77-62 Saturday afternoon behind junior Rob Diggs’ 21 points. Junior Wynton Witherspoon added 15 points and 11 rebounds while senior Maureece (Reece) Rice had 15 points. Perhaps the most exciting part of the game was a trio of dunks supplied by Diggs, Witherspoon and junior Cheyenne Moore, all of which sent the announced crowd of 3,644 into a frenzy. The Colonials (1-0) next host Boston University Nov. 14 at 7:30 p.m. Check out Monday’s Hatchet for complete coverage of today’s win.
