ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Norville S. Carey notched 20 points as the Rider University Bronc’s stunned Iona, 103-85, on the road on Sunday February 19, 2017.

The Broncs shot a season-high 59.7 percent (40-67) from the floor, including 50.0 percent (9-18) from long range to improve to 15-14 (8-10 MAAC), while the Gaels slip to 18-11 (11-7 MAAC). The win is the Broncs’ first at Hynes Athletic Center since the 2010-11 season.

Virgin Islander Carey pulled six rebounds and one steal to his night’s work and inspired his team mates, scoring 12 points on 3-of-4 from the floor and 6-of-6 from the free-throw line, in the first half.

“I tell these guys all the time, any given night, any team can beat anybody,” said Rider Head Coach Kevin Baggett. “So, if we can prove that we can beat these top teams, we should go into this MAAC (Tournament) knowing that we should feel like we could beat anybody.”

Carey & Rider University fall short against Canisius

Norville S. Carey was just shy of a seventh double-double and the Rider University Bronc’s failed to hold off Canisius, falling to an 85-77 defeat on Friday February 17, 2017 at Alumni Gymnasium.

Kahlil Thomas (Parkway, FL/Blanche Ely) added his MAAC-leading 10th double-double with 14 points and 12 rebounds, while Xavier Lundy (Paulsboro, NJ/Paulsboro) scored all 19 of his points in the first half.

Virgin Islander Carey chipped in with 11 points and eight rebounds. Stevie Jordan (Bensalem, PA/Conwell-Egan/API) contributed seven points and seven assists.

“Give Canisius a lot of credit. Those guys shot it really well,” said Rider Head Coach Kevin Baggett. “This was a game with plenty of breakdowns defensively and turnovers.”

For the game, the Griffs outshot the Broncs, 48.4 percent (31-64) to 46.3 percent (31-67) from the floor, 44.0 percent (11-25) to 35.0 percent (7-20) from long range and 66.7 percent (12-18) to 61.5 percent (8-13) from the free-throw line. Rider took a 45-34 edge on the glass. 

With the setback, the Broncs fall to 14-14 (7-10 MAAC), while the Griffs improve to 17-11 (10-7 MAAC), but have a chance to improve when they return to action Sunday February 19, 2017, travelling to Iona, with a Tip-off from the Hynes Athletic Center  scheduled for 5 #:00 PM on ESPN3.

Norville S. Carey has posted six double-doubles, good for fifth in the MAAC.
