CHARLOTTETOWN - Travis Adams dropped 23 points, 16 rebounds, three steals and 3 assists on the St. Thomas University Tommies as the Holland Hurricanes earned a 109-80 win Saturday night at the Centre for Community Engagement.
With the victory, the Hurricanes extend their conference-best record to 11-0 (won-lost).
The Tommies fell to 3-10 with the loss and currently sit seventh in the eight-team Atlantic Collegiate Athletic Association.
The Tommies led by as many as four early in the contest, but didn't have many answers for a Hurricanes team that ran the floor with efficiency and and added sense of urgency in front of a boisterous home crowd. Holland led 32-24 after the first quarter, 56-40 at the half, and 89-56 after three.
St. Thomas was led by Omer Hassan's 16 points and five rebounds, while Almin Dervisevic added 15 points and five boards.
Roosevelt Whyley had a game-high 26 points in his 27 minutes of action. League-leading scorer Jace Colley added 23 points and seven assists, and Jordan Holness contributed with a 13-point ten-assist double-double performance.
The Hurricanes shot 53.2% from the field, while the Tommies fired at a 44.6% success rate.
One area of concern for the Hurricanes is their continued struggles beyond the arc, converting on just five of 23 attempts — three of which were scored by Connor Therrien (11 points). The Tommies shot the three at 38.7%.
Holland will travel to Halifax to face the UKC Blue Devils (3-7) January 26th, as the look to extend their winning streak to twelve-straight.
The Tommies will square off with the win-less Dalhousie Agricultural Campus Rams on the 26th in Bible Hill, Nova Scotia.
