Thursday, November 26, 2015

 

Karl Charles

The Holy Cross Crusaders (2-3) defeated (1-4) Sacred Heart 69-60 on Wednesday afternoon at the Hart Center. The Crusaders are now 7-5 all-time against Sacred Heart.

"It's good to get a win, I thought we sorta controlled the game the other night against Quinnipiac for about 30, 35 minutes and then we lost our way. Tonight, I thought we controlled the game also, it got a little hairy there for a little while but then our guys came through," said Crusaders head coach Bill Carmody after the game.

See the Five Takeaways Slideshow Below

Sacred Heart used a 7-0 second half run to tie the game at 51 before Holy Cross' Anthony Thompson scored five straight points to put Holy Cross up 56-51.

Holy Cross then led 60-57 when Thompson struck again, this time from three-point land to put the Crusaders up 63-57 with 2:51 left to play in the game.

Sacred Heart would not get closer than five points the rest of the way. Holy Cross woud finish the game by converting six of their final eight free throws to seal the win.

The Leaders

Freshman Karl Charles led Holy Cross witha career high 15 points while also pulling down seven rebounds in the game.

Another freshman Matt Zignorski netted 13 points in 21 minutes off of the bench.
