Trinity Beats Beavers

On Saturday afternoon, Trinity College Bantams to an 87-56 win over the visiting City College of New York Beavers.

It was a wild game in the first 8 minutes of the first half. The game had many runs. The Bantams started the game on a 7-0 run, then CCNY responded with a 14-2 run, and the Bantams went on to finish the half on a 29-10 run.

Trinity continued to lead comfortably throughout the second half and held CCNY to a 34.4 percent clip from the field. The Bantams also outrebounded the Beavers, 49-40. Five Bantams finished in double figures.

Beavers guard Yassine Sakhi scored a game-high 20 points for CCNY, but he had a quiet game and looked frustrated in particular possessions.
Bantams’ assistant coach Trey Witter knew Sakhi’s good and knew the team needed to step up on defense.

“He certainly is a very good player,” Witter said.” We spent a lot of time this week talking about him and prepping for him, watching the film. He has earned that respect. I think Dana Smith did a good job on him. We wanted our help to be on those drives to make him make tough shots. He had a good game, but we just wanted to make it as difficult as possible for him.”

The Bantams victory is remarkable because it is the 400th victory for Trinity Head Coach James Cosgrove. Four hundred wins of his incredible career.

Trinity improves to 6-3 heading into the semester break, while the Beavers drop to 4-5.

Beavers will host the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts on Wednesday, Dec. 29, at 2:00 p.m.
