Agboola shoots down BC

Agboola beats BC

Many Division 1 colleges opened up Friday with some impressive local performances.

BU junior tri-captain Rashidat Agboola of Methuen came up big with 12 points, 5 rebounds and 3 blocks in a 52-46 win over BC. BC junior Katie Zenevitch from Methuen and Central Catholic scored nine points and grabbed a game-high 15 rebounds. BC starting freshman guard Danielle Boudreau of Andover scored six points, grabbed six rebounds and had three steals.

Wright State freshman starting guard Joe Bramanti of Andover always loves beating Central! He scored two points with two assists and a game-high four steals in a 78-56 win over Central State of Ohio.

Freshman Georges Niang of Methuen had a near-perfect debut in Iowa State’s 82-59 romp over Southern. Niang came off the bench to pump in 15 points and grab 12 boards.

Remembering his roots

Matt Bonner would be hands down the greatest basketball player ever from New Hampshire even if he didn’t make the NBA. I love that the 9-year NBA vet from Concord still does a column with the Union Leader and a local radio show.

He said in the Union Leader, “This is for everyone along the way who has helped out and shown support: coaches, teachers, people in the stands.”

Mars Hill (N.C.) College freshman Nick Caruso of Lawrence shot a 73-76—149 to win the four-team Montreat College Men’s Fall Invitational. He coolly drained a par saving putt on the 35th hole to secure the win.

Cakes are baking

UTL birthday wishes go out to St. Anselm volleyball coach Karen Harrington of Windham (turns 29 today), Pinkerton gymnastics standout Brittany Capozzi (turns 16 today), ex-Miami Dolphin fullback Rob Konrad of North Andover (turns 36 tomorrow), Le Moyne lacrosse player Nathaniel Vazquez of Haverhill (turns 19 tomorrow), ex-Pinkerton flamethrower Jay “The K” Yennaco (turns 37 Saturday) and UMass Dartmouth pitcher Aaron Brunette of North Andover (turns 22 Saturday).
