The Gould Huskies matched up with the Wilbraham and Monson Titans on Saturday in the second game of a back to back at the St. Andrew’s Holiday Classic in Barrington, Rhode Island.

He continued to convert layups and field goals from deep to give the Huskies a lead early. He finished the game with 26 points.
The Titans matched up with Gould well with tough guard play from Chris Childs ’18 and Miles Lester ’17. Their 17 points and 12 points, respectively, helped to climb back into the game and eventually take a double digit lead late.
With just over four minutes to go in the contest the Titans led the Huskies by 13 points. After a timeout and defensive adjustment Gould looked to climb back into the game.

Wilbraham and Monson had the ball with the clock running down and just missed a field goal that could have won the game with 5 seconds to go. Jahbril Price-Noel ’18 (18 points) cleaned up the defensive rebound for Gould and drove the ball the length of the court to complete the layup on the right side as the buzzer sounded. Gould wins 68-66. The Huskies take the win and momentum with them into the Winter Break with a 4-4 record in the NEPSAC AA League.
