Hamilton’s Graham Robinson ’25 scored a season-high 12 points in 18 minutes off the bench as he was 3-of-5 from 3-point range. Conner Red ’23 also scored 12 points and patrick mogan ’23 added 10. Nick Osarenren ’22 filled the stats with eight points, eleven rebounds, seven assists and six steals. The Continentals produced 30 bench points and secured 22 points from 19 bates turnovers.

Simon McCormick led the Bobcats with a game-high 17 points while playing 5 of 12 from behind the arc, and Devin Harris put on 11 in 17 minutes off the bench. Bates fell to 5-6 overall and 0-3 in the NESCAC. The Bobcats only went 7-for-18 at the free throw line.

The Bobcats led most of the first eight minutes until a jumper in Rood’s color gave Hamilton a final 16-14 lead midway through the half. Bates was within two points at 5:27 at 23-21, but the Continentals finished the half with 15 straight points. Robinson and Elliott Tirbaso ’22 powered the run with consecutive 3-pointers, and Tirbaso’s knight in the suit made it 38-21.

Hamilton took his widest 32-point lead at 69-37 on an old-fashioned 3-point pass Christian McDaniel ’24 with 7:07 remaining. Despite a 10-point run by the Bobcats late in the second half, the Continentals led by as many as 17 points after the break.

Hamilton will be back in action on Saturday, Jan. 22, when the Continentals host NESCAC opponents Amherst College to a 1 p.m. tip.
