Blazers Come Up Short At Westfield

Westfield, MA – The Elms College men's basketball team dropped a non-conference game at Westfield State University on Thursday night 88-77. The loss drops the Blazers to (2-7) on the season.

Westfield led 39-29 at the half, then extended its lead to as many as 26 points, leading 61-35 after a pair of free throws with 14:45 left in the game, as the Owls put together a 22-6 spurt to open the second half. Elms had nine different players score in the opening frame, with David Lopez Jr. leading the way with seven points.

Westfield led 70-44 with 11 minutes left in the game. Elms rallied in the final minutes, with three three-pointers from DJ Edelen (Prince Gearge, VA) in that stretch, and then cut the lead to just seven, 84-77 on a Kewan Smoot (Windsor, CT) layup with 1:44 to play that forced an Owls timeout. The Blazer comeback would fall short, losing the game 88-77.

Elms was led by 18 points from Edelen and got 17 points from Lopez, Jr., and 16 from Smoot.

Elms will host another MASCAC opponent, MCLA on Tuesday 12/10 at 7:00 p.m. at Picknelly Arena.
