The Hood college men’s basketball regular season came to a close Wednesday with a 58-49 victory against rival Salisbury. The victory was a positive note to an up and down campaign. They ended the season on a two-game winning streak with a record of 15-10. February 21 is their CAC conference first round game. Their opponent is not known yet as it will be made soon.
The Blazers finished 7-9 in the conference which ranked them sixth. St. Mary’s (MD) tied with Mary Washington at 12-3 to lead the conference. Marymount finished at the bottom of the conference at a pathetic 1-14.
Hood PPG leader: Forward Cameron Cook finished with 14.0 PPG and was one of the main leaders on the team. The sophomore will need to come up big for the Blazers to succeed in the upcoming tournament.
Another disappointing season ends for the lady Blazers as they finished the season on a four-game losing streak. Hood finished with an overall record of 6-18, but struggled mightily in their conference with a mark of 2-14.
Mary Washington, who finished 24-0 this season, are ranked number eight in Division III and will look to represent their conference in the tournament. They won all 15 of their games in the conference.
Dyanna Prater was one of two Blazers that finished the season in double-digit points per game average (13.8). Emily Maerz tallied 10.3 points per game along with the point guard.
The Junior Prater was the leader on the team and showed up in every game she played.
