The St. Lawrence University men's basketball team made a season-best 11 three-pointers, including 7-for-11 in the second half, en route to a 75-60 victory over Liberty League opponent Bard College in the Burkman Gymnasium on Saturday. Both teams made over half of the shots they took in the game, but the Saints' 52.4% shooting from behind the arc was the difference that proved too much for the Raptors to overcome.
St. Lawrence (4-8,2-1) had three players reach double-figures, led by sophomore Brady Condlin's team-high 19 points on 7-for-11 shooting. Meanwhile, senior Kyle Miller added 18 points, including four 3-pointers, while junior Janpeter Brase tallied 13 points and a team-high seven rebounds.
The Saints led by as many as 10 points in the first half before taking a 37-29 advantage at the intermission. Bard cut the lead to six points (37-31) in the opening minutes of the second half, but that was the closest it would come as St. Lawrence seemed to hit a 3-pointer every time the visitors narrowed the gap.
St. Lawrence outscored Bard 25-11 in the final 10:00 minutes, securing the 75-60 victory, its second in Liberty League play. The Saints held advantages in rebounds (27-23) and assists (20-13), and forced 10 Raptor turnovers while limiting their own to nine.
The Saints will travel to Clarkson on Jan. 15 to take on the Golden Knights. Tip-off is scheduled for 8:00 pm in Potsdam, NY.
