Thunderwolves roll in home opener


Niagara Gazette — Jon Marsh added 12 points for NCCC and Ethan Baker (Wilson) had nine points (all from beyond the arc) and seven rebounds.

“He’s kind of our bailout guy and he’s still not getting as many shots as he should be,” Beilein said. “But he hit a couple 3s, they had to guard him, and Zig was able to hit the holes.”

• The NCCC women’s team opened up its first season under new coach Nate Beutel against a Finger Lakes squad that already had three games under its belt, and lost 68-56.

“We had a few first-game jitters that translated into too many turnovers and too many ill-advised fouls,” Beutel said.

The Thunderwolves turned the ball over on 25 possessions and put the Lakers on the line 22 times.

“Those two stats were the difference in the game,” Beutel said.

Jessica Curry (Wilson) had 22 points, 11 rebounds and four assists to lead NCCC, showing little rust after sitting out all of last season and missing most of her freshman season at Geneseo due to injuries and illness.

Curry netted 17 of her points and dished three assists in the second half. She scored five in a row to get the lead to nine points with four minutes left, but a deep end-of-the-shot-clock 3-pointer from Finger Lakes’ Brittany Monpere (21 points) put the game out of reach.

“In the second half, Jessica Curry played the way she is capable of playing,” Beutel said. “And she is going to need to be that assertive for us all season long.”
