They hold an early Atlantic 10 lead, haven’t lost with a healthy starting five and are riding a three-game win streak. The St. Bonaventure Bonnies, however, are not satisfied with how they’re playing entering Friday night’s nationally televised contest with longtime rival Duquesne…
Jaren Holmes continued his hot streak, following up a 38-point performance against St. Joseph’s with 26 points on 10-of-16 shooting, including five 3-point baskets. Holmes scored 12 of SBU’s first 18 points, making his first five shots…
By CHUCKIE MAGGIO The first indication of the 2020-21 St. Bonaventure men’s basketball team’s on-court chemistry was its first possession of the season. The Bonnies’ first play took just 14 seconds to complete and featured seven passes to just six dribbles, concluding with an easy backdoor layup by Kyle Lofton. All five players touched the […]
By CHUCKIE MAGGIO Jaren Holmes is St. Bonaventure’s newest Atlantic 10 Player of the Week, the conference announced Monday. Holmes earned the award with a 38-point, 10-rebound performance in Bona’s 83-57 win over St. Joseph’s at the Reilly Center last Wednesday. Holmes shot 8-of-12 from 3-point range, scoring 26 of his 38 points in the […]
Bona had gone scoreless for 347 seconds of game time, which extended to 371 for its longest drought of the young season, when Jalen Adaway re-entered the conference home opener against St. Joseph’s
Holmes made eight 3-pointers, tied for the third most in a game in school history, and shot 14-of-22 from the field overall. He made six of his seven 3-point tries in the second half as the Bonnies outscored the Hawks 51-29 in the second period.
The Hawks have played the last two games without Ryan Daly, the league’s leading scorer by average last season, due to a thumb injury Daly suffered in the loss to Tennessee. The 6-foot-5 redshirt senior notably went for 30 points on 50 percent shooting at Drexel on Dec. 17, his fourth 30-point performance in 35 games as a Hawk.
By CHUCKIE MAGGIO Kyle Lofton was pleading with the officials at the Robins Center moments earlier, protesting a no-call that turned into a traveling infraction and threatened to turn St. Bonaventure’s lengthy lead into an 0-2 league start. Then came redemption in the form of a missed Richmond free throw and a spent shot clock, […]
By CHUCKIE MAGGIO If the St. Bonaventure men’s basketball team wants a blueprint for rebounding from a substandard start to Atlantic 10 play, the Bonnies need look no further than their last opponent. Rhode Island had 12 days to lick its wounds from losing at Davidson’s Belk Arena on Dec. 18, and while the Rams […]
Bona found itself in a tie game with 5:24 remaining but committed four turnovers after that point, allowing Rhody to go on a game-defining 7-2 run and notch a 63-57 victory on Wednesday evening…
