Stevens Boys Advance After Topping Newport 75-51

The Stevens boys basketball team took care of business on senior night against Newport on February 26th to finish their regular season at 11 – 7.

According to Stevens Coach Matthew Baird – Torney the emotions of senior night led to a slow start for Stevens against Newport with Stevens leading 19 – 14 after the first quarter. Stevens began to settle down and play their game in the second quarter increasing their lead and going into the half up by 17 points.

The third and fourth quarters were more of the same for Stevens as they continued to pass the ball well and make their shots winning their final regular season game 75 – 51 over Newport.

The underclassmen were the leading scorers on both teams with Newport’s  Ethan Houde (#35) leading all players with thirty points. Stevens leading scorer was Henri Bourque #23) with 15 points and  Noah Spaulding (#11) with fourteen points.
