New England College Basketball Roundup – Jan. 23, 2023

By Stephen Ur III –

Colgate 64, Boston University 51

Colgate guard Braeden Smith led the game with 21 points and was almost perfect shooting in the paint, going eight for nine from the floor. Colgate led by as much as 21 in the second half and never looked back en route to a 64-51 victory. The loss for the Terriers is their fifth in their last six games and their second to Colgate in 2023.

Penn 76, Hartford 52

Hartford and Penn were tied at 23 with 4:39 left in the first half. The Quakers would control the final two and a half minutes and took a nine point lead into the locker room, leading 37-28 at halftime.

They would outscore Hartford 39-24 in the second en route to their 24 point victory. Jordan Dingle led the game with 23 points while Max Martz hit five three-pointers.

The loss for Hartford is their 11th in a row, and they continue to search for their first win in 2023.

UConn 94, DePaul 51

While the Hartford men have lost 11 straight, the UConn women’s team has now won 11 in a row as they defeat DePaul by 43. Aaliyah Edwards recorded a triple-double in this game, scoring 23 points and adding 10 rebounds.

Three other UConn players scored in double figures, including Lou Lopez Senechal, who scored 20 and shot four for eight from three. The only player who scored in double figures for DePaul was Aneesah Morrow, who scored 20.
