The Eagles got their third win in a row at Chase Gymnasium on Saturday, Nov. 23, against University of Maine at Fort Kent. BU demolished the Tigers, 104-53. The bench players provided a huge boost, led by sophomore center Solomon Ruddell who scored 23 points along with five blocks and five rebounds.

Big contributions also came from junior guard Chris Russow, junior forward Michael Bagatourian and sophomore guard Whitten Dominquez. Russow filled the stat sheet, totaling nine points, four assists and seven rebounds. Bagatourian finished with 15 points, two assists and five rebounds, while Dominquez tallied 18 points, along with four assists and five rebounds.


The Eagles controlled every aspect of the game from the start, and they cruised to a 59-23 lead going into the half. BU shot 38 percent from three in the half and only committed one turnover. They also took advantage of their height, grabbing 46 rebounds throughout the game over the undersized Bengal Tigers. 

“Even though we won easily, it was nice that everyone played hard. We only had one turnover in the first half, so they were focused and we competed well, so that was nice,” said head coach Dave Holmquist.


The Eagles bench players got big minutes in the second half, with Holmquist making a full-five switch with 17 minutes to go in the game. Ruddell, Dominquez, junior guard Will Shannon, junior guard Tyus Dennis and freshman guard Zanen Zeller all got extended minutes tonight. They all combined for 60 points in tonight’s game.

“They were ready to go, a lot of them haven’t even played yet,” Ruddell said. “When they hit the floor, they played really well.” 

The Eagles (3-2) will look to continue their win streak at home on Monday, Nov. 25 at 7 p.m. against University of Saint Katherine.
