    Wolfie’s Sports Roundup

    Men’s Basketball

    Falling to Lehigh on Wednesday, the Seawolves dropped to 1-7 on the season after a 76-61 road loss. Ricky Lucas’s 21 points led all scorers, as one of the few bright spots for the struggling Seawolves. Shooting 24% in the first half gave Lehigh a comfortable 11-point lead, and SB played catch up the rest of the game. The lone Seawolves win this season came the week before, in a 70-43 blowout of Dartmouth at home. The Seawolves play Monday night against NJIT at 7:00 p.m.

    Women’s Basketball

    After a promising 2-1 start, Women’s Basketball has lost five of their last six, their latest coming at the hands of Yale on Friday. Dana Ferraro, Jodie Plikus and Aly Young all hit double figures, but could not stop Melissa Colborne’s 27 points who led Yale to a 81-64 win. The Seawolves return home to play CCSU on Wednesday, tipping off at 7:00 p.m.

    Swimming

    With Women’s swimming finished for the year, the Men’s team competed against U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, taking home a 137-101 victory. Junior diver Julian Acevado was the star once again, winning in the 1-meter and 3-meter events as one of three Seawolves to take home a first place finish. The next meet, scheduled for Jan. 16, 2008, will see SB take on Lafayette, followed by a home meet against Fairfield on Jan. 26 for the season finale.

    Indoor Track & Field

    In their season opener the Seawolves faced off in the Fordham Invitational, taking first in the triple jump (Mubaarak Muhammad), and second in the 3,000 meter (Leanne Skrabacz). SB competes again on Friday in the second part of the Fordham Invitational.
