The Bonnies are a perfect 5-0 at the Reilly Center this season and have won nine straight at the RC dating back to last year. St. Bonaventure is 11-19 all-time in league openers, including 7-4 at home. The last time the Brown and White opened league play at home was in 2007, a 74-69 victory over Saint Louis. The Bonnies have opened up A-10 action at home just twice in the last 11 years. A win would give St. Bonaventure back-to-back wins in A-10 openers for the first time since the 1988-89 and 1989-90 seasons.

Scouting the COLONIALS

Off to a great start under ninth-year head coach Karl Hobbs, George Washington has already equaled its win total from all of last year with its 10-3 record. Even more impressive is the fact the Colonials won their first five road games of the season and sport a 5-1 mark away from home. A total of 11 players average 10 or more minutes per game for GW. The huge rotation of players has helped the Colonials stay fresh en route to leading the A-10 in both rebound margin (+6.2) and steals (9.2). Leading the way is senior Damian Hollis who ranks 12th in the A-10 in scoring at 15.3 points per game. The son of former Bona great Essie Hollis, Damian scored 17 points and had six rebounds at the Reilly Center on Feb. 16, 2008 when his father's #25 was retired. Freshman Lasan Kromah ranks second on the team in scoring (10.0), while starting all 13 games. Sophomore point guard Tony Taylor continues to develop and ranks in the top three on the club in scoring (9.4/3rd), rebounding (3.8/3rd) and assists (52/1st). Taylor is fourth in the A-10 with a +2.5 assist/turnover ratio.

- St. Bonaventure vs. george washington (JAN. 6) MARSHALL POWERS PAST BONNIES, 80-61

(Box Score & Full Recap on Page 34) ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. - A 20-6 run to open the second half and four players in double figures helped Conference USA foe Marshall hand St. Bonaventure a 80-61 loss on Saturday afternoon at the Cam Henderson Center. Leading the way for Marshall was freshman Hassan Whiteside, who finished with game-highs of 17 points, 12 rebounds and six blocks. The 7-foot freshman did all of his damage in the second half and played just 19 minutes. Fellow big man Tyler Wilkerson also finished with a double-double with 10 points and 12 boards. Making his first career start, junior Ogo Adegboye led the Brown and White with 15 points in a full 40 minutes of work. Senior Jonathan Hall finished with his second double-double in the last three games with 11 points and 10 boards also over 40 minutes. For the game, St. Bonaventure shot just 37 percent (22-60) from the field, but was doomed by its 10-for-35 performance in the second half. On the flipside, Marshall connected on 15-of-30 from the floor in the final frame and went 10-of-14 from the free throw line. The play of Whiteside in the second half helped the Thundering Herd outscore the Bonnies 24-12 in the paint.

Head Coaching Matchup

the Canadian big man leads the team in both scoring (15.8) and rebounding (7.2). Nicholson leads the A-10 with a 64.4 percent (85-132) field goal percentage and is one of two players to rank in top 10 in the conference in both scoring (10th) and rebounding (7th). Nicholson poured in a game-high 26 points on 11-of-15 from the field against St. John's and then equaled a career-high with 29 points and a career-best 14 boards against Norfolk State. He has a team-high three 20-point games this season. Nicholson has led the team in scoring seven times and rebounding five times this season, including both in the same game on four occasions.

home cooking

With a 5-0 mark this season, St. Bonaventure has extended its home Reilly Center win streak to nine games - the longest since a 10-game streak that stretched from the end of the 2000-01 season (3 games) to the start of the 2001-02 campaign (7 games). The Bonnies closed last season on a four-game A-10 home win streak. Over the nine-game win streak, the Bonnies have out-scored their opponents by 13.5 points per game and have shot over 50 percent in six of the nine games for a cumulative 51 percent clip (249-490). Senior JONATHAN HALL is averaging 15.6 points during the home win streak. Hall has a 30-point game and a pair of 20point efforts during the run. Sophomore Andrew Nicholson (13.0) and senior Chris Matthews (12.2) are also averaging double figure points during the win streak.

do it all hall

After becoming just the second player in program history to lead the team in points, rebounds and assists in the same year, senior Jonathan Hall is quietly putting together another solid season. Hall ranks second on the club in nearly every statistical category; points (12.2), rebounds (5.2), assists (3.3), steals (17), blocks (8) and field goal percentage (.568). The Miami, Fla. native has scored in double figures a team-best 12 times, while leading the way on the backboard seven times, including the last five games. Over his last three games, Hall has averaged 13.7 points, 9.0 rebounds and 4.7 assists, highlighted by a pair of double-doubles and a 20-point outing. Hall also has six of his eight blocks on the season over the past three contests. Hall ranks third in the A-10 in field goal percentage and ninth in assist/turnover ratio (+1.5).

Sophomore Andrew Nicholson is the center of attention for opposing teams. That hasn't stopped the reigning Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Year from avoiding a sophomore slump, as

Blessed with a 7-foot-4 wingspan and plenty of bounce, sophomore Andrew Nicholson's career 61.6 percent shoot clip is aided by his ability to dunk the basketball. Through 43 career games, Nicholson has thrown down 64 dunks out of his 239 field goals. In 2008-09, Nicholson had 37 dunks and has followed with 27 already this season. Nicholson set a career-high with seven slams at Niagara on Dec. 22, besting his previous record of five at Duquesne last season. The Mississauga, Ontario product has a dunk in 27 career games, including 19 multi-dunk performances and 11 games of three or more dunks. Category Games W/ A Dunk Multi-Dunk Games 3+ Dunk Games

Who says big men can't shoot? According to the most recent NCAA statistics, sophomore Andrew Nicholson is less than one percent away at the charity stripe from being one of two players in the nation shooting 60 percent or better from the field and at least 80 percent from the free throw line. To be eligible for the rankings, the player has to make five field goals per game and an average of 2.5 free throws per contest. The 6-foot-9 second-year forward ranks eighth in the A-10 in free throw percentage (.795). He also leads the conference and ranks third in the country in field goal percentage (.644). Nicholson is looking to join Lafayette's Jared Mintz on the exclusive list.

BOMBS AWAY

Senior Chris Matthews has continued to display the shooting stroke that helped him sink 81 three-pointers a year ago. Matthews enjoyed a breakout tournament at the BTI Classic, averaging 21 points and six trifectas per game over three games. Matthews equaled the school record of eight three-pointers in the final game against Illinois State, while also tying his own career-best of 28 points. The Washington, D.C. product's 3.2 three-pointers per game currently lead the A-10 and rank 17th in the country. Matthews has made three or more treys in a game seven times already this season helping him rank third on the team in scoring at 11.6 per game. In just 43 games as a Bonnie, Matthews has moved into 10th place on the all-time three-pointers list with 123, just three shy of Shandue McNeill in ninth place.

painting the town brown

St. Bonaventure has been extremely efficient on offense this season. The Bonnies have shot 50 percent or better in seven of the 12 games and are shooting at an impressive 48.8 percent clip (359-735) for the year - tops in the A-10 and 25th in the nation. The easy buckets around the rim have led to a 480-428 edge in points in the paint. The 480 points in the paint account for 51 percent of the team's offense this season and 36.9 points per game.

easy does it

Thanks to solid interior play, easy buckets in transition and points off turnovers, St. Bonaventure has shot an impressive 48.8 percent from the field to lead the A-10 and rank 25th in the nation. The Bonnies have shot over 50 percent in seven of 13 games and 13 of 26 periods. The Brown and White's best shooting performance of the season came against Norfolk State when it finished 37-of-55 from the field for a 67 percent clip. The team's top percentage in a half came over the opening 20 minutes of the season against Cleveland State when it sank 77 percent (17-22) of its shots. Sophomore Andrew Nicholson (.644) and senior Jonathan Hall (.568) rank first and third in the A-10, respectively, and in the top 31 nationally in field goal percentage. St. Bonaventure had finished with a 50 percent shooting percentage or better just eight times over two previous seasons.

get ready, get set, go!

Simultaneous with its 7-5 start to the season has been St. Bonaventure's ability to get off to great starts in the first half. The Bonnies have taken the lead into the locker room in nine of 12 games, including six leads of 13 points or more. St. Bonaventure out-scored those nine opponents 342-232, good for a +12.2 margin. As a team, the Bonnies are shooting 49.6 percent in the first stanza this season. Sophomore Andrew Nicholson is averaging team bests of 9.8 points and 4.4 rebounds over the opening 20 minutes.

the cincinNati kid

After a freshman season in which he averaged 3.3 points and played sparingly, Michael Davenport has shown major progress in his sophomore campaign. After scoring in double figures one time as a freshman, the Cincinnati, Ohio product has already produced five double-digit efforts this season. The Bonnies are 5-0 when the 6-foot-3 guard reaches double figures. Davenport began his second season in style, scoring a career-high 19 points on 7-of-10 from the field off the bench. Davenport is fourth on the team in scoring (8.8), second in assists (39) and third in rebounding (3.8). After coming off the bench over the first seven contests, Davenport has made six consecutive starts.

point guard by committee

Just like the early part of last year, head coach Mark Schmidt has opted to use a pair of players to occupy the point guard position. Juniors Ogo Adegboye and Malcolm Eleby make up the Bona floor generals, combining to average 13.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game. Adegboye replaced Eleby in the starting lineup at Marshall, snapping a streak of 42 consecutive starts by the Philadelphia native. A more physical point guard at 6-foot-3, Eleby has led the team in assists seven times and ranks third in the A-10 at 4.6 helpers per game. Adegboye provides an offensive spark and has reached double figures in two straight games, averaging 13.5 points.

RACE TO 100

After producing the third-best blocked shot total in school history as a freshman, Andrew Nicholson become just the third player in program history to reach 100 career blocks after his four-rejection game against Canisius in his 42nd career game. Nicholson currently stands at 103 rejections, good for third in the Bona record books. All-time shot block leader Caswell Cyrus reached 100 career blocks in 36 games. Cyrus' 100th career block came in the 12th game of his sophomore year when he set the then-school record with eight blocks vs. Siena. Nicholson tied the record last year vs. Princeton and then broke it three games later at Bucknell with nine blocks. Nicholson is currently eighth in the Atlantic 10 at 1.7 blocks per game.

lending a helping hand

Partial credit for St. Bonaventure's sensational shooting percentage is its improvement in passing the ball. The Bonnies currently lead the A-10 in assists per game at 16.1, a figure that ranks 37th in the nation. As a team, St. Bonaventure has passed out an assist on 58 percent of its field goals, including a season-best 26 against Norfolk State. Junior point guard Malcolm Eleby ranks third in the A-10 at 4.6 per game and has led the team in assists six times. Sophomore Michael Davenport passed out a team season-high and career-best eight assists in the win over Norfolk State. As a team, the Bonnies have had 15 or more assists in nine games and a trio of contests with 20 or more helpers. St. Bonaventure has also had a positive assist/turnover ratio in six games, including four of the last six.

the dunk tank

Armed with more athleticism and depth, St. Bonaventure's eye-opening 77 percent shooting percentage in the first half in its season-opening win over Cleveland State was fueled by a plethora of dunks and layups. The easy buckets have led to 480 points in the paint so far this season. Sophomore Andrew Nicholson's 27 dunks so far this season are more than half of the team's 46. The Brown and White set a team season-high with nine at Niagara led by seven from Nicholson. Last season, Nicholson led the team with 37 dunks. Here's how the Bonnies stack up this season.

20/20 vision

During the team's 98-71 blowout win over Norfolk State at the BTI Classic, sophomore Andrew Nicholson and senior Chris Matthews became the first duo since 2007-08 to score 20 points in the same game. Nicholson equaled a career-high with 29 points, while Matthews drilled six three-pointers en route to 21 points. The last duo to score 20 points in the same game was Michael Lee and Tyler Relph on senior day against Dayton in 2008. Lee and senior Zarryon Fereti also scored 20 points in the same game three times that season. Nicholson leads the team with three 20point games, while Matthews and classmate Jonathan Hall each have two.

BALANCING ACT

St. Bonaventure's balanced scoring attack is sure to give its opponents fits in the film room. The Brown and White have four players averaging at least 8.8 points per game and six that are at 6.8 per game or better. Through 13 games, a total of five different players have led St. Bonaventure in either scoring, rebounding or assists in a game. The Bonnies have received seven 20-point efforts from three different players. Those scoring outbursts have come over six different games. Five players hit for double-digit points in the team's win against Canisius and the Bonnies are 4-0 when at least four players accomplish the feat. Seven different players have scored in double figures this season.

license to steal

Junior Malcolm Eleby's ability to play multiple positions is thanks in large to ability to play defense. The Philadelphia, Pa. native led the Brown and White in steals last season with 42 and is off to another good start on the defensive end. Eleby has registered six multi-steal games bringing his career total to 20. Eleby has a steal in 10 games this year and 33 of his last 42 contests.

IN OUR DEFENSE

After failing to hold an opponent to less than 50 points over the previous 275 games, St. Bonaventure held back-to-back opponents to 41 and 44 points, respectively, in the month of November (Binghamton & Southeast Missouri State). It marked the first time since 1982, that the Brown and White have held two consecutive opponents under 50 points. Against Savannah State on Dec. 12, St. Bonaventure held its third opponent of the season in the 40s during a 79-47 victory. The defensive effort marked the first time in 50 years, the 1958-59 season, that the Brown and White have held three opponents in the 40s during the same season.

early season hardware

Both senior Chris Matthews and sophomore Andrew Nicholson earned All-Tournament honors at the Basketball Travelers Classic at the end of November. Matthews buried 18 three-pointers over the three games, while Nicholson averaged 22 points and 13 rebounds over the first two games. On the final day of the tournament, Nicholson was named the A-10 Co-Player of the Week after his performance in the opening two games.

HEADCOACHMARKSCHMIDT BIO

With his blue collar work ethic now installed in the program, third-year head coach Mark Schmidt will continue his revival of St. Bonaventure basketball in 2009-10. Schmidt took over the tradition-rich program on April 10, 2007, becoming the 19th head coach in school history. In just two short years, Schmidt and the Bonnies have re-energized the Bona faithful and basketball-passionate Western New York community. In 2008-09, St. Bonaventure finished with a 15-15 overall record – the program’s best mark in the last six years. Included in that season was a program record seven consecutive road wins to start the season and the program’s first trip back to the Atlantic 10 Tournament since 2005. Team team’s seven true road wins also tied the record set by the 2001-02 club.

Key to the quick turnaround in 2008-09 was the team’s ability to buy into Schmidt’s emphasis on playing hard for 40 minutes. That philosophy paid big dividends, as the Bonnies out-rebounded 22 of their 30 opponents en route to ranking in the top five in the conference in all three major rebounding statistics. Also a direct result of Schmidt’s style of play was the team’s 70.8 points per game – the most by a Bonaventure team since 2002-03. During the 2008-09 season, freshman Andrew Nicholson was named the A-10 Rookie of the Year and a Freshman All-American by CollegeHoopsNet.com. Nicholson is the third player in Schmidt’s eight-year head coaching career to win a conference Rookie of the Year accolade. Junior Jonathan Hall also flourished under Schmidt’s runand-gun style, becoming the second player in program history to lead the team in points, rebounds and assists in the same season.

Additionally, Schmidt achieved a personal milestone of his own midway through the season, as he earned his 100th career win in the team’s 78-65 win at Fordham in the A-10 opener. Schmidt’s intense personality rubbed off on everyone involved with the program in his first season, including the senior class of Zarryon Fereti, Michael Lee and Tyler Relph who flourished under just one season of Schmidt’s guidance. All three posted career years on the court and experienced success of the court by graduating in May. Both Fereti and Lee worked their way into the professional ranks overseas, while Relph finished as the NCAA leader in free throw percentage. Schmidt served as the head coach at Robert Morris for six seasons prior to coming to St. Bonaventure. There, he inherited a program that had managed just a 7-22 record in the season before his arrival. Schmidt quickly turned things around, leading the Colonials to the Northeast Conference Tournament semifinals in 2004 and 2006. During his six seasons at RMU, he had an overall record of 82-90, including a 15-14 mark in 2005-06, the program's first winning season since 2000. Schmidt turned the Colonials into a year-in and year-out contender in the conference, posting a 58-52 mark in league play highlighted by four seasons of 10 or more league wins. Schmidt coached six NEC All-Conference players at RMU, along with three All-Rookie team selections and one Conference Rookie of the Year in Jeremy Chappell in 2006. Over the last two seasons, Schmidt saw his former recruit Tony Lee and Chappell garner back-to-back NEC Player of the Year accolades in 2008 and 2009, respectively. Prior to Robert Morris, Schmidt spent seven seasons as an assistant coach at Xavier University under head coach Skip Prosser. Schmidt served as the program's top recruiter, landing future NBA players Torraye Braggs (Houston Rockets), Lionel Chalmers (Minnesota Timberwolves), James Posey (Miami Heat), Romain Sato (San Antonio Spurs) and David West (New Orleans Hornets). With most of his coaching responsibilities centered around the post players, Schmidt helped develop West into a threetime Atlantic 10 Player of the Year and the National Player of the Year in 2003. During his stay in Cincinnati, Ohio, Schmidt helped lead the Musketeers to four NCAA Tournament appearances and the National Invitational Tournament (NIT) twice. Xavier claimed its first-ever Atlantic 10 West Division title in 1996-97 and both the West Division and Coaching Experience (20 Seasons): • 2007-Present Head Coach, St. Bonaventure University • 2001-06 Head Coach, Robert Morris University • 1994-01 Assistant Coach, Xavier University • 1993-94 Assistant Coach, Loyola (Md.) College • 1991-93 Assistant Coach, Penn State • 1989-91 Assistant Coach, St. Michael's College Years as a Head Coach (9th Season) Overall Record: 112-133 Record at St. Bonaventure: 30-43 (3 Years) Record at Robert Morris: 82-90 (6 Years)

tournament championships in 1997-98. In 1997, Xavier defeated Vanderbilt in the first round of the NCAA Tournament and finished the season with the school's highest Associated Press ranking at No. 13. The Musketeers made it to the NIT Final Four at Madison Square Garden in 1999, finishing third, the school's best finish since 1958. Schmidt served as an assistant under Prosser at Loyola College during the 1993-94 season. He helped guide the Greyhounds to the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Tournament title and the school's first-ever NCAA Tournament berth. From 1991-93, Schmidt was an assistant at Penn State University under Bruce Parkhill. The Nittany Lions went 21-8 in 1992 and appeared in the NIT. Schmidt's coaching career began with a two-year stint as an assistant at St. Michael's College in Vermont. Schmidt played four seasons at Boston College, where he received his bachelor's degree in business administration and management with a concentration in marketing. In his freshman season under head coach Tom Davis, the Eagles went 22-10 and made the NCAA Elite Eight. Schmidt played his final three years under the guidance of head coach Gary Williams. Boston College advanced to the NIT in 1984 and the NCAA Sweet Sixteen the other two years. A native of North Attleboro, Mass., Schmidt and his wife Anita have three sons, Nicholas (14), Derek (12) and Michael (9).

ST. BONAVENTURE 72 Cleveland State 62

St. John's 69 ST. BONAVENTURE 68

ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. - St. Bonaventure jumped out to a 18-point halftime lead and never looked back as it cruised to a 72-62 season-opening win over defending Horizon League Tournament champ Cleveland State on Friday night at the Reilly Center. The opening 20 minutes looked like anything but the Brown and White’s first half of the season, as their 41-22 advantage at the half brought the crowd of 4,860 fans to their feet. St. Bonaventure was sharp on the offensive end, shooting an unheard-of 77 percent from the floor over the opening 20 minutes. “I thought we played a terrific first half and got out to a great start shooting 77 percent from the field,” said head coach Mark Schmidt. “That was the best half of basketball from both an offensive and defensive standpoint that we’ve had in a long time.” The Bonnies received a trio of big performances, led by senior Jonathan Hall’s game-high 20 points that came on 10-of14 from the field to go along with a team-best eight rebounds. Sophomore Andrew Nicholson contributed 17 points, including 14 in the first half, while adding seven boards and four blocks. The surprise game came from sophomore Michael Davenport (pictured) who came off the bench and established a new career-high with 19 points on 7-of-10 from the field in 28 minutes of work. Led by Davenport, the Bona bench out-scored Cleveland State’s reserves by a 25-9 margin.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - After erasing a late seven-point deficit over the final three minutes, St. Bonaventure watched its lead evaporate with just six seconds remaining as Malik Boothe sank a pair of free throws to send St. John's to a thrilling 69-68 win on Tuesday night at Blue Cross Arena. Sophomore Andrew Nicholson (pictured) made good on his two free throw attempts with just 11 seconds to go, giving the Bonnies their first lead, 68-67, since the 18:05 mark early in the half. Boothe then broke the Brown and White's full court pressure and was fouled going to the rim resulting in the two free throws. St. Bonaventure did get a good look in its final shot, but sophomore Michael Davenport's three-pointer from the top of the key caromed off the back of the rim as the buzzer sounded. The back-and-forth game featured 10 lead changes and nine ties, as both team's enjoyed good nights on the offensive end. The Bonnies finished above the 50 percent plateau for the second straight game, connecting on 26-of-46 from the field. St. John's shot 54 percent , but made eight three-pointers to the Bonnies' one. The Bonnies out-scored St. John's by a 44-30 margin in the paint. The major reason for that advantage down low was the play of Nicholson, who led all scorers with 26 points despite missing the final nine minutes of the first half due to foul trouble. Nicholson finished 11-of-15 of the field and scored 17 points in the second half.

BTI CLASSIC ST. BONAVENTURE 67 Southeast Missouri 44

Nov. 20, 2009 at the Reilly Center ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. - A 35-6 run that stretched from the end of the first half through the opening 12 minutes of the second half helped St. Bonaventure shake off a slow start en route to a 66-40 win over Binghamton on Friday night at the Reilly Center. The 40 points giving up is the best defensive effort since Jan. 7, 1995, when the Brown and White held Appalachian State to 32 points at the Reilly Center. It also marks the first time the Bonnies have held a team under 50 points since an 84-44 win over Rhode Island in 2000. The Bearcats managed just six points over 15 minutes and 41 seconds that crossed over from first to second half. The Bonnies forced 19 Binghamton turnovers that led to 22 points. The win moves the Bonnies to 2-1 on the season, heading into next week’s three-game stint at the BTI Classic hosted by Illinois State. The Bearcats, on the other hand, fall to 1-2 with the loss. Just two players finished in double figures for the Brown and White, as 11 of the 12 players who got into the game registered a bucket. Senior Jonathan Hall (pictured) led the way with 12 points, while sophomore Michael Davenport finished with 10 points that to a pair of three-pointers. St. Bonaventure built a commanding 43-24 on the glass thanks to a season-best 16 rebounds on the offensive glass. The Brown and White’s hard work on the glass led to a 16-5 edge in second chance points and 34 points in the paint.

Nov. 27, 2009 at Redbird Arena NORMAL, ILL. - Stifling defense and three players in double figures helped St. Bonaventure open play at the Basketball Travelers Classic on the campus of Illinois State with a convincing 67-44 win over Southeast Missouri State Friday night on Doug Collins Court at Redbird Arena. The Bonnies opened the game on a 15-0 run and never looked back en route to improving to 3-1 on the young season. After failing to hold an opponent to less than 50 points over the previous 275 games, St. Bonaventure has now held back-toback opponents to 41 and 44 points, respectively. Southeast Missouri State (1-4) shot just 32 percent from the floor and 6-of-16 from the free throw line. The Brown and White forced the Redhawks into 20 turnovers that led to a 25-6 advantage in points off turnovers. On the flipside, the Bonnies finished above 50 percent from the field for third time in four games this season. St. Bonaventure sank 12-of-22 field goals in each half, going a combined 24-of-44 (55 percent) for the game. The rebound edge, 37-27, also went in favor of the Bonnies. Sophomore Andrew Nicholson (pictured) led the way with 15 points and a equaled a career-high with 12 rebounds for his first double-double of the season. The 6-foot-9 forward recorded the double-double by the end of the first half and finished 5-of-6 from the field and free throw line in 26 minutes.

BTI CLASSIC Illinois State 80 ST. BONAVENTURE 77

NORMAL, ILL. - Behind a careerhigh 29 points from sophomore Andrew Nicholson (pictured) and 21 points from senior Chris Matthews, St. Bonaventure pulled away for a 98-71 win over Norfolk State in a fast-paced contest on the second day of the Basketball Travelers Classic Saturday night on Doug Collins Court at Redbird Arena. Nicholson did a majority of his damage in the first half, scoring 23 points. The Mississauga, Ontario product also grabbed a career-high 14 rebounds and finished 11-of-13 from the field for his second consecutive double-double. Matthews did his damage from the outside, connecting on six three-pointers for his fourth career 20-point game. St. Bonaventure’s 4-1 start is its best since 2000, while its current three-game win streak is its third streak of three or more wins in the last 35 games. Prior to last season, the Bonnies had just one three-game win streak over the previous five seasons. For the fourth time this season, the Bonnies shot over 50 percent and out-rebounded their opponent. The Brown and White finished at an impressive 67 percent clip (37-55) from the field, while posting a 38-30 edge on the glass. Aiding the field goal percentage were a season-high eight dunks and 52 points in the paint. As a team, St. Bonaventure set a season-high with 26 assists on its 37 field goals.

NORMAL, ILL. - Despite 28 points and a program record eight three-pointers from senior Chris Matthews (pictured), St. Bonaventure couldn’t overcome its 29 fouls in hard-fought 80-77 loss at Illinois State Sunday afternoon in the championship game of the Basketball Travelers Classic on Doug Collins Court at Redbird Arena. The loss snaps a three-game win streak for the Bonnies, who fall to 4-2 on the young season, while Illinois State stays unbeaten at 6-0. Matthews’ eight three-pointers equaled the school record set seven times by four different players, including by Matthews in last year’s game at Dayton on Jan. 25. The Washington, D.C. native sank 10-of-17 from the field and 8-of-11 from long range. The difference in the game came at the free throw line where the Redbirds sank 27-of-41 compared to 11-of-15 for the Bonnies. The Brown and White committed 29 fouls to Illinois State’s 16. Included the plethora of Bonaventure fouls was sophomore Andrew Nicholson, who fouled out with just two points and three rebounds in 15 minutes of work. Nicholson averaged 22 points and 13 rebounds over the first two games of the tournament and was one of three Bonnies that fouled out. Junior Malcolm Eleby was one of the players that stepped up in the absence of Nicholson. Eleby had arguably the best game of his career, equaling career-highs of 14 points and nine rebounds.

Along with the late run in the first half and the early second half push, the other difference in the game came at the free throw line where Syracuse made 15-of-26 compared to the Brown and White’s 6-of-12. Fouls plagued the Bonnies at the guard position, as Michael Davenport and Hall missed considerable time. A big reason for the Bona foul trouble was the physical inside play of Syracuse junior Rick Jackson. The 6-foot-9, 240-lb. forward finished 8-of-11 from the field en route to an 18-point and 10rebound night. Wesley Johnson also chipped in a double-double with 17 points and 10 boards.

Niagara 77 ST. BONAVENTURE 71

ST. BONAVENTURE 82 Canisius 75

LEWISTON, N.Y. - In a second half that featured 13 lead changes and five ties it was host Niagara that pulled away in the final 20 minutes for a dramatic 77-71 comeback win over St. Bonaventure in front a capacity crowd of 2,400 fans Tuesday night at “Taps” Gallagher Center. The 150th meeting between the two tradition-rich programs would have made the originators of this Little 3 rivalry proud, as both teams produced stellar 20-minute efforts. Unfortunately, for the Bonnies, theirs was in the first half. Despite trailing by 16, 41-25, at the break, Niagara opened the final frame on a game-altering 19-2 run that gave the Purple Eagles their first lead since the opening minute of the half. All 13 of the second half lead changes came over a nineminute span that was capped by a pair of three-pointers from Demetrius Williamson that gave the home team the lead for good. Niagara out-scored the Bonnies 52-30 in the second half. The loss is the second in a row for the Brown and White, who fall to 6-5 on the season. The win extends the Purple Eagle’s winning streak in the series to seven games, as they improve to 8-4. Sophomore sensation Andrew Nicholson (pictured) dominated the paint, but was limited to just 16 minutes due to foul trouble in both halves. Nicholson finished with a game-high 24 points and seven rebounds. The 6-foot-9 forward connected on 10-of-14 from the field, highlighted by seven dunks.

ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. Behind a season-high five players in double figures and a great allaround performance from senior Jonathan Hall (pictured), St. Bonaventure was able to fend off Little 3 rival Canisius for an 82-75 win on Wednesday night at the Reilly Center. The win snaps a two-game losing streak and a three-game slide against Little 3 opponents for the Bonnies and improves their record to 7-5. The Brown and White are a perfect 5-0 on Bob Lanier Court this season and are riding a nine-game home win streak that dates back to last season. The loss snaps a two-game win streak for Canisius, as they slip to 6-7. Hall became the first Bonnie this season to lead the team in all three major statistical categories, finishing with 20 points, seven rebounds and six assists. The Miami, Fla., product went 10-of-16 from the floor and chipped in three blocks and two steals. For the game, St. Bonaventure shot 48 percent (32-67) from the field thanks to a 54 percent clip (19-35) in the second half. The Brown and White’s hot-shooting over the final 20 minutes led to 47 points in the second half, including 32 in the paint. The Brown and White’s 46 points in the paint can be attributed to their 43-36 edge on the glass that was highlighted by a seasonhigh 20 offensive caroms. St. Bonaventure also passed out 20 assists for the third time this season helping them break the 80point plateau for just the second time.

Marshall 80 ST. BONAVENTURE 61

Jan. 2, 2010 at Cam Henderson Ctr. HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - A 20-6 run to open the second half and four players in double figures helped Conference USA foe Marshall hand St. Bonaventure a 80-61 loss on Saturday afternoon at the Cam Henderson Center. The loss puts an end to nonconference play for the Bonnies and drops their record to 7-6 heading into Atlantic 10 action. Marshall now stands at 11-2 heading into the start of its league play and extends its home winning streak to 13 games. Leading the way for Marshall was freshman Hassan Whiteside, who finished with game-highs of 17 points, 12 rebounds and six blocks. The 7-foot freshman did all of his damage in the second half and played just 19 minutes. Fellow big man Tyler Wilkerson also finished with a double-double with 10 points and 12 boards. Making his first career start, junior Ogo Adegboye (pictured) led the Brown and White with 15 points in a full 40 minutes of work. Senior Jonathan Hall finished with his second double-double in the last three games with 11 points and 10 boards also over 40 minutes. For the game, St. Bonaventure shot just 37 percent (22-60) from the field, but was doomed by its 10-for-35 performance in the second half. On the flipside, Marshall connected on 15-of-30 from the floor in the final frame and went 10-of-14 from the free throw line. The play of Whiteside in the second half helped the Thundering Herd outscore the Bonnies 24-12 in the paint.
