The Quincy College Granite Men’s Basketball team picked up 2 key victories last week with a non-conference win over the Eastern Nazarene College (ENC) Junior Varsity Team on Wednesday, November 28th and an impressive National Junior College Athletic Associate (NJCAA) conference win over Massachusetts Bay Community College on Saturday December 1st.
Against ENC, Quincy College Granite was led by #1 Walter Dew-Hollis of Dorchester with 25 points and #10 freshman Darrius Hyppolite of Bridgewater with 20 points each. Quincy College Granite Men’s Basketball Coach Doug Scott saw his young team start to play better as a group and is starting to see the results he’s been looking for. Also playing well for the Granite was Granite Captain #4 Jonathan DeVeiga of Boston, #23 Cameron Mason of Weymouth, #13 Trahe Qualls of Dorchester and #24 Bryan Desire of Boston. Quincy College Granite won 94 to 89 versus Eastern Nazarene College junior varsity team.
Quincy College Granite faced Massachusetts Bay Community College in an NJCAA conference match-up with Quincy College Granite coming out on top 98 to 90. Granite was led by Bridgewater’s Darrius Hyppolite with his best game of the season scoring 29 points, 12 rebounds, and 5 assists. Also shining for Quincy Granite was Bryan Desire with 23 points and 10 rebounds. Coach Scott applauded the play of Weymouth’s Cam Mason who has emerged as a starter with great hustle and solid defense. #30 Abu Kaba of Brockton and Trahe Qualls continue to play strong defense for the Granite. This will surely be needed as Quincy College Granite face four challenging NJCAA Region 21 opponents away in the coming week, playing Bristol Community College, Roxbury College, Bunker Hill Community College and cross town rival Massasoit Community College.
Quincy College Granite Men’s Basketball returns home court at Lahue Gym at Eastern Nazarene College on December 15th, the start of three home game stretch facing Holyoke Community College, Gateway Community College, and Springfield Technical Institute before the 1st half of the season concludes.
