Kevin Misevicius came out red-hot in the men’s basketball season opener scoring a game-high 25 points against the Drew University Rangers on Sunday, Nov. 15. The final score of the game was 79-47.
“We played well as a team together. We’re playing the way we need to play if we have any hopes of winning the conference,” Misevicius said.
Despite the long drive to Madison, N.J., the Cavaliers were loose and ready to play, conjuring up a 25-9 lead within the first 10 minutes of the game, a lead they would never surrender.
“We jumped them early. We brought the intensity right from the tip off and once we brought it, we kept it going. Too many times we have seen that teams can catch up so we knew we couldn’t let up,” Corey White, senior guard, said. White led the team with a team-best six assists.
The Rangers tried to close the gap coming within 20 points right before halftime, but, as White said, Drew University couldn’t match the intensity that came out of the Cabrini locker room.
Besides the fact it was a demolishing season opener victory for the Cavs, it was also the 100th career win for Coach Marcus Kahn.
“I thought we played very well. We got off to a good start and we didn’t let up at all. I kept the starters in as much as possible because this is a new group. I wanted to give them time to work on a few things as well as mold together,” Coach Kahn said.
Complimenting Misevicius in the victory was junior Dom Farello.
“In the locker room Coach Kahn told us every journey has a first step so make it a good one. This was definitely that good first step,” Farello said. Farello finished the game with 16 points overall.
Behind Farello in scoring was freshman guard A.J. Williams and sophomore forward Brandon Carter, who both scored eight points in the victory. Williams was 2 for 3 from the three-point line as he conjured up an incredible performance in his Cabrini debut.
Leading point scorers for the Drew University Rangers were Mike Mayes who went 5 for 11 with 17 points and Terrell Brown who tallied 10 points.
Coach Kahn left the starters in longer for some extra time to gel, but it seems like everything couldn’t have gone better for the Cavaliers in their season opener.
