Holy Cross Falls Late in First Patriot League Matchup


Holy Cross, despite a late comeback, dropped its first Patriot League matchup of the season, as it fell 79-74 to Colgate.

The Crusaders trailed 77-68 with 45 seconds left when freshman guard Austin Butler nailed two 3-pointers in 20 seconds, to pull the Crusaders within three points.

However, Colgate senior forward Jordan Swopshire made a dunk in the closing seconds of the game to give the Raiders the win, giving himself a season-high 22 points in the process.

Junior forward Jehyve Floyd led the Crusaders with 15 points, while Butler scored 14 points and led the team with six rebounds. Junior forward Karl Charles scored 11 points, and freshman forward Jacob Grandison chipped in 10 off the bench.


Sophomore forward Will Rayman led the Raiders in rebounds with nine, and also contributed 15 points. Freshman guard Jordan Burns scored 12 points and had five assists.

The Crusaders were outrebounded by 10 in this game, which has become a common theme in their losses this season. Part of their downfall also came from the fact they shot 38 percent from beyond the arc, while Colgate shot 48 percent from deep.

Holy Cross continues Patriot League Play on Tuesday when it visits Lafayette (2-10, 0-1) for a 7 p.m. tip off.
