College Roundup: Williams men's basketball blows out Fitchburg; MCLA women edged on road

FITCHBURG — Bobby Casey scored 26 points in just 21 minutes as second-ranked Williams defeated Fitchburg State 109-41 on Thursday night. The win makes it six straight to start the season for the Ephs.

Williams took advantage of the three ball, shooting 61.5 percent from beyond the three-point arc. Casey converted seven of eight attempts from three. Marc Taylor scored 16 off the bench on seven of eight shooting to go along with six rebounds. Matt Karpowicz added nine points and 15 rebounds in just 16 minutes of action.

Nicholas Tracy led the way for Fitchburg State with nine points. It was a basket by Tracy that made it 3-2 with 17:32 left. But the Ephs responded with a 9-0 run and ran away with the win.

The Ephs will try to make it seven in a row as they travel to Middletown, Conn. on Saturday to face the 3-2 Cardinals, in a Little Three game. It is, however, not the NESCAC league game. That'll be played in Williamstown in January. Saturday's tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.
