Las Vegas, NV: Thomas Bonacum posted a team high 21 points as the Ramapo College men's basketball team extended their win streak to 11 games with a 77-62 victory over Gustavus Adolphus College today at the 7th Annual D3hoops.com Classic.
The Roadrunners improve to 11-0 overall while the Gusties fall to 2-7 overall. Bonacum led the Roadrunners in the game as he shot 9-12 from the free throw line and 6-13 from the floor. Cory Soanes recorded a double-double, 19 points and ten rebounds including a team high five steals in 27 minutes played off the bench. Patrick Peterson added 11 points and five rebounds while Sultan Aminu posted nine points and five rebounds. Ramapo posted 44 points in the paint and 25 points off of Gustie turnovers. Ramapo shot 44% (25-59) from the floor, 28% (2-7) from the three-point line and 69% (23-33) from the free throw line. The Roadrunners out rebounded the Gusties 43-36 in the game.
Ramapo got on the board first in the game as Josh Ford and Bonacum tallied back-to-back baskets in the first minute of play for a quick 4-0 lead. The Roadrunners would tie the game for the fourth time on a jumper from Soanes 18-18 with just under 11 minutes to play in the half sparking a 10-0 run. The run was capped off by a steal and layup from Soanes putting Ramapo up 26-18 with 7:39 on the clock. The Gusties would cut the lead to three on a three-pointer from Charlie Krambeer before Ramapo took their biggest lead of the half 38-25 with less than two minutes to go as Soanes once again posted a layup. Ramapo went into the locker room up 40-30 and never looked back in the second half. The Gusties could only cut the Ramapo lead to nine four times in the first four minutes of the second half. The Roadrunners biggest lead came with 3:02 left in the game as they led by 21 points when Bonacum grabbed a dish from Nick Stanek for a layup and a 77-56 lead.
Riley Sharbono led the Gusties with 16 points while Benjamin Lies added ten points of his own. The team shot 38% (22-57) from the floor, 25% (6-24) from the three-point line and 63% (12-19) from the free throw line.

| Behind Terrell Spaulding 28 points Felician College hit 4 game win streak.- Nov.27, 2016 (by Joan)|
RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Sophomore forward Terrell Spaulding (Paterson, N.J./Eastside) scored 16 of his game-high 28 points in the second half to help Felician University hold onto what was once a 22-point lead and earn an 85-79 non-conference men's basketball victory over visiting Franklin Pierce University on Sunday afternoon at Job Gymnasium.

RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Sophomore forward Terrell Spaulding (Paterson, N.J./Eastside) scored 16 of his game-high 28 points in the second half to help Felician University hold onto what was once a 22-point lead and earn an 85-79 non-conference men's basketball victory over visiting Franklin Pierce University on Sunday afternoon at Job Gymnasium.
Felician (4-3) has won four consecutive games for the first time since a six-game spurt in January and February of 2011.
Spaulding made 11 of 17 field-goal attempts, including 4 out of 6 from behind the three-point arc. He also pulled down a season-high 15 rebounds for his third "double-double" in seven starts. Junior forward Mike McDevitt (Cumberland, Maine/Greely) shot 10 for 15 from the floor and turned in 23 points and six rebounds for Franklin Pierce (2-4).
The Golden Falcons made 11 three-pointers, shooting 46 percent from distance. The Ravens, meanwhile, were 5 for 25 on three-point attempts.
Felician matched its largest lead of the game, 46-24, following two Zamir Wright (Newark, N.J./University) free throws with four minutes, 55 seconds, remaining in the first half. A late running jumper by senior Bryant Webb (Parlin, N.J./Sayreville War Memorial) allowed the hosts to bring a 53-36 edge into the intermission.
The Golden Falcons were ahead by 19 points with 18:02 left in regulation time, only to see the Ravens embark on a 13-2 run over the next four-plus minutes of game time. Felician's Gjaimeir Stanford (Wilmington, Del./Howard) halted the uprising with a conventional three-point play at the 13:14 mark for a 65-54 advantage, and a Spaulding jumper moved the spread back to 14 points at 9:52.
FPU had one more run left in it, scoring the game's next nine points to pull to within 70-65 at the 7:21 mark. Four times down the stretch, the Ravens sliced their deficit to four points, but never came within one possession of the Golden Falcons. Trailing 81-75, FPU forced consecutive Golden Falcon turnovers with just over a minute left, but misfired on jump shots each time.
Junior Jamar Redmond (Roselle, N.J./Abraham Clark) totaled 14 points for Felician, and Stanford finished with 13 points. The Ravens received 17 points, six assists and four blocks from senior Donte Gittens (Hartford, Conn./The Master's School), while senior Matt Banton (Brooklyn, N.Y./Transit Tech) scored 14 points with four assists.

McGuinness, who becomes the fourth head coach in the program's history, will start his duties with CWRU on Aug. 1.

Case Western Reserve athletic director Amy Backus has announced the appointment of Todd McGuinness as the head men's basketball coach of the Spartans. McGuinness, who becomes the fourth head coach in the program's history, will start his duties with CWRU on Aug. 1.
McGuinness replaces Sean McDonnell, who resigned last month after compiling a 128-197 record in 13 seasons. The Spartans were 12-13 this past season.
"I would like to thank Case Western Reserve University, and especially Amy Backus, for this fantastic opportunity," said McGuinness. "I have had the good fortune of working here as an assistant coach and I know what an unbelievable university Case Western Reserve is.
"I always thought that if presented a chance to become the head coach at CWRU that it would be one of the best jobs in NCAA Division III," continued McGuinness. "I am looking forward to meeting the returning players and getting to work."
McGuinness, a Pittsburgh native, brings back with him 14 years of coaching experience at the Division III level, including the last seven as the head coach of Hartwick. While at Hartwick, he compiled a 114-72 overall record, good for a .613 winning percentage and the third-most wins by a head coach in the program's history. His teams qualified for the NCAA Tournament four times during his tenure and won three Empire 8 championships, the first in the program's history. McGuinness was named the Empire 8 Coach of the Year during the 2011-12 campaign, and coached his players to two conference player of the year awards, two conference rookie of the year honors, and two Empire 8 Tournament Most Valuable Player awards.
"I want to thank Todd for his seven years of service to Hartwick," said Hartwick athletic director Kim Fierke. "He has made a positive impact on our scholar-athletes and the competitiveness of the men's basketball program. He will be missed."
McGuinness will be returning to Case Western Reserve after serving a stint as the assistant coach of the varsity program and head coach of the junior varsity squad from 2006 through 2009. During his three seasons with the Spartans, he helped mentor University Athletic Association Rookie of the Year Kevin Herring in 2007-08 (just the second in the program's history), while the 2008-09 team recorded the most conference victories by a CWRU squad in nine seasons.
Prior to his time as an assistant at CWRU, McGuinness was an assistant coach at Vassar from 2004-06, and at Hartwick from 2003-04.
McGuinness played collegiately at Bethany, where he received his bachelor's degree in physical education in 2002. While at Bethany, he was a three-year starter and a two-year co-captain, leading the Bison to two Presidents' Athletic Conference Championships and an NCAA Tournament appearance in 2002.
"I am thrilled to welcome back Todd McGuinness as our new head coach of the Case Western Reserve University men's basketball team," Backus said. "Todd is a proven winner, a committed recruiter and outstanding individual. His appreciation for developing our student athletes both academically and athletically was very clear in the interview process.
"He understands the University Athletic Association and will hit the ground running. We are excited about the future of Spartan basketball under Todd's leadership."
