PAXTON, Mass. – Despite a school-record ten three-pointers from David Reynolds, the Bowdoin College men's basketball team fell in their final non-conference game of the season to Anna Maria, 79-74, on Wednesday night.

Reynolds' ten three-pointers breaks the record of nine formerly held by Kevin Bradley (vs. Maine-Presque Isle, 2007). The Polar Bears fall to 8-15 while Anna Maria improves to 9-13 on the year.

Game Highlights

  • Reynolds was on fire in the first half, nailing seven three-pointers and scoring 21 points to lead the Polar Bears to a double-digit advantage.
  • Bowdoin as a team connected on 63% from the field and owned a 47-37 edge at the break.
  • The Anna Maria outscored Bowdoin 11-3 out of halftime and took the lead on a Bobby Perette four-point play with 10:37 to go.
  • That swung the momentum as the hosts rolled off an 11-2 surge to push the lead to double figures with under seven minutes to go.
  • Bowdoin got within two points on two occasions in the final two minutes, but could get no closer as Anna Maria hung on to the victory.

By The Numbers

  • Bobby Perette and Jakai Anderson combined to score 32 of Anna Maria's 42 second half points to lead them to victory. Perette led the hosts with 21 points in the victory.
  • The difference proved to be 23 turnovers committed by the Polar Bears which led directly to 30 points for Anna Maria.
  • David Reynolds led all scorers with a career-high 34 points, including a 10-15 effort from three-point range. His ten trifectas lifted his season total to 82, tying Chad Rowley's single-season mark set in 1996-97.
  • Sam Grad (13) and Xander Werkman (11) also reached double figures for the Polar Bears.

Up Next
