DII: Saint Anselm goes on run to pull past Bloomfield, advance to regional final

NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- A late 19-4 run snapped a 56-56 tie and sent No. 3-seeded Saint Anselm to the NCAA East Regional final with an 82-68 victory against No. 7-seeded Bloomfield on Sunday evening.

With the victory, Saint Anselm (22-7) advances to play the winner of the contest later Sunday between top-seeded and host Southern Connecticut State and No. 4-seeded Franklin Pierce. Bloomfield’s season comes to a close at 22-9.

A balanced offensive attack in which seven different players scored at least seven points proved to be the recipe for success for the Hawks. Five of those seven reached double figures, paced by 16 points from Mike McCahey and Domenic Borelli.

The game was all tied at 56 with just under seven minutes to play until the Hawks scored 19 of the next 23 points in a stretch of just about four and a half minutes.

Marvin Williams led the Deacons with 23 points.
