Lynx Cannot Match Mariners in Conference Opener


NEW LONDON, CT. -- The Lesley Men's Basketball team returned from their winter break with a 119-91 loss to Mitchell College in their first conference action of the season. The Lynx drop to 2-11 overall and 0-1 in the NECC, while the Mariners advance to 9-8 and 1-0 in the conference.


  • Lesley was simply outshot in this one, as the Mariners shot 69.5% in the first half and 63.6% for the game. Mitchell also made eight of twelve three point attempts and took advantage of the Lynx down low, while Lesley only shot nine for twenty-three from three.
