A year after helping the Babson College men's basketball team win an NCAA Division III championship, senior Nick Comenale (New York Mills) is making his way up the list of the program's all-time scoring leaders.

The 6-foot-4 shooting guard reached a milestone last week — when he scored the 1,000th point of his career — and he entered Wednesday night's home game against Coast Guard Academy leading the defending national champions in scoring and 3-pointers.

A few days after scoring a season-high 29 points against Johnson & Wales University, Comenale became the 26th player in program history to score 1,000 point when he helped the Beavers beat Springfield College 83-60 in their New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) opener. He finished with 28 points on 10-of-15 shooting, and he also grabbed nine rebounds.

Four days later, Comenale scored 12 points and Babson rallied from an early 12-point deficit and improved to 2-0 in the conference and 7-6 overall with a 79-72 road win over Worcester Polytechnic Institute. That raised his career point total to 1,012 — that makes him 26th in program history, just 134 points away from cracking Babson's top 15.

Before hosting Coast Guard on Wednesday, Comenale was leading the team in scoring at 19.2 points per game. He was shooting 52 percent from the field, 43.7 percent from 3-point range, and 86.7 percent from the foul line. He had a team-high 45 3-pointers so far this season, and his 210 career 3s ranks third on Babson's all-time list. He needs five more to move into second place.

As a junior, Comenale averaged 16 points and started all 33 games for the Beavers.

• Alfred University's Dalton Cousin (Sherrill/Vernon-Verona-Sherrill) scored 18 points on 7-of-8 shooting and grabbed 10 rebounds in a 96-65 win over Hartwick College. He scored 15 points on 7-of-9 shooting and had seven rebounds in a 77-70 loss to Stevens Tech.

Schoff's 29-point effort equals her career high

Sage College senior Gen Schoff (Little Falls) matched her career high and also moved up to third place on the program's all-time scoring list when her 29 points led the Gators to a 78-72 win over Western Connecticut State.

Schoff shot 11 for 17 from the floor and also grabbed 12 rebounds as Sage (8-3) won its fourth straight game. She is third in scoring with 1,184 points, third in career rebounds with 760 and second in blocks with 102.

• Sophomore Lauren Lapertosa (Whitesboro) came off the bench to score a career-high 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting - she was 2 for 2 from 3-point range — in Mercyhurst University's 79-62 win over Clarion. Older sister Maria Lapertosa (Whitesboro) had eight points and three assists for Mercyhurst.
