Men's basketball falls in East Regional Semifinals

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – After advancing to the round of 32 with a dramatic 59-57 upset victory over the University of New Haven Saturday, the Bloomfield College men’s basketball team saw their 2013-2014 season come to an end with a 82-68 loss to third-seeded Saint Anselm College in the NCAA East Regional Tournament Semifinal Sunday afternoon.

Heading into the tournament as the seventh seed after receiving an at-large bid, the Deacons shocked second-seeded New Haven on Saturday, staving off a last-second attempt by the Chargers on the game’s final possession to preserve the two-point win and advance to the next day’s action.  Senior guard Steve Henderson (West Orange, N.J.) came off the bench to notch 15 points on 5-9 three-point shooting in the win, while junior guard Marvin Williams (Jersey City, N.J.) notched 13 points in the victory.

Bloomfield was able to stay with Saint Anselm through much of the contest Sunday, trailing 47-41 heading into halftime.  The Deacons would tie the game at 54 with 9:17 remaining, but the Hawks would engineer the decisive run of the contest over the remainder of the game, outscoring Bloomfield 28-14 to advance to the East Regional Final Monday evening.

Williams led all scorers with 25 points for the Deacons, while sophomore Claude Blue (Bronx, N.Y.) totaled 12 points in the loss.

“Our players should be proud of what we accomplished this season,” head coach Gerald Holmes said.  “Obviously this game did not turn out the way we wanted it to, but our goal every year is to reach the NCAA Tournament, and we did that.  They have a lot to be proud of.”

“The men’s basketball team once again made noise in the NCAA Tournament, which speaks to the type of program they have built,” athletic director Sheila Wooten said.  “It was a tremendous year for both of our programs, and both of our teams should be extremely proud of what they have accomplished.”
