Forward Deven Palmer posted,20 points, 5 rebounds and 5 blocks and Jonathon Daveiga added 21 additional points, for a hard fought victory. The win was attributed to a total team effort after star and division III leading point guard Dajur Dunkley was benched due to injury. Quincy College Granite head Coach Doug Scott lauded the additional offensive efforts of Ugo Kamalu with 18 points and 10 rebounds and Darius Hall and Reggie Cesar’s strong play to help secure the win.
On Feb. 3rd, Quincy College Granite faced Mass Bay Community College. Strong defensive effort led by Reggie Cesar, Farnel Etienne and John Pope kept Quincy College Granite’s win steak alive. Offensively, the Granite was led by the 43 point, 15 rebound effort of Deven Palmer.
Not standing on the shoulders of a single player or game outcome, Quincy College Granite’s team efforts are impressive in the final weeks of their inaugural season, after facing perennial powerhouse Bunker Hill Community College and Mass Bay Community College. The combined efforts of every player on the team has allowed Quincy College to extend its winning streak to 19 games in a row.
