Wright scores 25, leads Dartmouth to first victory
NEW YORK (AP) — Miles Wright made five 3-pointers and scored a season-high 25 points and Dartmouth picked up its first victory, beating LIU Brooklyn 82-68 on Sunday.
The Big Green (1-9), off to their worst start in nearly 50 years, made 11 of 23 3-pointers to post their first win under head coach David McLaughlin.
Guilien Smith and Brendan Barry added 14 points each and Ike Ngwudo scored 11. Evan Boudreaux, the Ivy League’s second-leading scorer who had been in double figures in every game this season, was only 3-of-15 shooting, missing all six 3-pointers, for seven points before fouling out. The rest of the team shot 51 percent.
Jerome Frink scored 22 points, Nura Zanna had 15 points and a career-high 16 rebounds and Iverson Fleming scored 12 points for the Blackbirds (7-5).
Dartmouth led 31-27 at halftime, took a double-figures lead for good with 11:26 remaining and built a 20-point cushion.
