Despite 15 lead changes and 12 ties, Amherst men's basketball edged out Williams 86-70 before a packed crowd at LeFrak Gymnasium. Jamal Wilson led Amherst with 21 points as the Jeffs claim their 9th consecutive win of the season.
Junior Billy Skorupski drew six of Williams' 28 fouls in the final 6 minutes of play as Amherst pulled ahead of the Ephs. Though Williams' Mike Nogelo led all players with 25 points and 15 rebounds, his numbers fell just short of the Ephs' 14 victory over Amherst in 15 games. Nogelo, however, did become the 14th Eph to surpass the 1,000 point mark in just 58 games. He now has 1,011 points in his career.
