Quincy College Granite Men’s Basketball Coach Doug Scott saw his young team come together for their best effort of the year in last week’s 98 – 86 victory over Roxbury Community College. This effort was led by #10 Darrius Hyppolite from Bridgewater, who scored a career high of 38 points. Hyppolite is quickly becoming a player to watch as his play has improved steadily this season. Also scoring for Quincy College Granite was #13 Trahe Qualls of Dorchester with his first triple double of the year with 19 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists. Granite Captain #4 Jon DeVeiga of Boston followed with 20 points to round out the offensive showing. Coach Scott praised the entire bench, especially the defensive efforts of #24 Bryan Desire of Boston and #14 Dion Bell of East Wareham.

Coming off this victory, Quincy College Granite faced Bristol Community College, where Granite played an even first half against the league leader despite missing a few players due to injuries, including point guard #1 Walter Dew-Hollis from Dorchester. Faltering in the second half, Quincy College Granite lost 89 – 65 despite the strong play of team Captain Jon DeVeiga and guards Trahe Qualls and Dion Bell. The Quincy College Granite look forward to players returning from injured reserve entering a two week stretch where they will play six tough NJCAA Region 21 opponents.
