The Holland College Hurricanes chalked up four more victories on the hardwood this weekend, sweeping the Crandall Chargers in Atlantic Collegiate Athletic Association basketball action.


Jenea Barrett had two big games to lead the Hurricanes to a 87-63 win Sunday in Moncton and a 79-70 overtime victory Saturday at home.

Barrett scored six straight points in Saturday's overtime to turn a 69-67 lead into a 75-67 advantage with a jump shot and two layups.

"She's an explosive offensive player," head coach Mike Connolly said. "She just took the team on her shoulders there for the last five minutes in overtime."

Jazlin Barker had 18 points and eight assists, Marvia Dean scored 17 and hauled down 23 rebounds while Chelsea Slawter-Wright had 13 points.

Senteria Renwicks had a game-high 35 points while adding 11 rebounds, three assist and three steals.

Holland College led 18-9 after the first quarter and 31-25 at half, but trailed 48-46 heading to the fourth.

The Hurricanes were 0-for-6 from three-point territory, but went 13-for-15 (87 per cent) from the free-throw line.

The Hurricanes carried the momentum in Sunday's contest. They held quarter leads of 20-15, 43-31 and 72-45 en route to victory.

"We maintained the intensity for 40 minutes today which is really the sign we were looking for," Connolly said. "We always said if we can maintain defensive intensity for that length of time then we'll be fine and put a lot of wins on the board."

Barrett had 25 points and eight rebounds while Ashley Moss and Barker each scored 15 and Dean chipped in 13. Moss added 14 rebounds while Dean had 10 and Barker seven.

Shamera O'Neal had 21 points for the Chargers.

The wins came following an eight-point loss at home to Mount Saint Vincent a week ago.

"We got back to pounding it on the inside," Connolly said. "We had a real good effort, especially on Day 2 to come out as strong as we did was really rewarding."

The Hurricanes improved to 3-1 while the Chargers are 2-3. Holland College travels to Halifax Sunday to play the King's Blue Devils at 2 p.m. They conclude the 2015 portion of their schedule Dec. 6 at St. Thomas at 2 p.m.


Travis Adams and Jayden Nordin each had 22 points to lead the Hurricanes men's team to an 87-84 victory in Moncton. Trevone Grant added 14 in the victory.

The Hurricanes held quarter leads of 22-18, 46-31 and 69-53.

On Saturday, The Hurricanes held quarter leads of 24-14, 50-34 and 70-52.

Adams had 31 points and 15 rebounds to lead the way. Nordin had 20 points while Grant chipped in 11.

Colby Lawrence led the Chargers with 14 points in 16 minutes. Crandall outrebounded the Hurricanes 51-40. Holland College scored 29 points off Crandall's 23 turnovers.

The Hurricanes improved to 5-0 while the Chargers are 4-2.
