November 25th, 1997 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H. – The basketball seasons at Plymouth State College couldn’t have gotten off to a better start than they did last weekend in a pair of season-opening tip-off tournaments.

The Panther men ran away from Endicott College and Notre Dame College to capture the PSC Tip-Off Tourney at Foley Gymnasium, while the PSC women brought home the title from the M.I.T. Engineer Tip-Off Tourney in Cambridge, Mass. The women’s squad will look to make it three straight tournament victories this weekend (Nov. 29-30) at the Gallaudet University Holiday Tournament in Washington, D.C.

P.S.C. MEN

Senior captains Ace Elefteriadis (Belmont, MA) and Seth Peloso (Rye, NH) combined for 31 points Saturday to lead PSC to a 95-63 victory over Notre Dame -in the championship game.

Peloso scored 13 points and added five assists and five steals in 25 minutes and earned tournament MVP honors, while Elefteriadis tossed in a game-high 18 points and 13 rebounds and earned a spot on the All-Tournament Team. Junior guard Adam DeChristopher (Brockton, MA) added 15 points and joined Elefteriadis on the All-Tournament Team.

The Panthers are idle until Thursday, Dec. 4th, when they host Salem State at Foley Gymnasium (7:30 p.m.).

P.S.C. WOMEN

Junior Becky Morse (Sterling, MA) scored 14 points and grabbed 18 rebounds Saturday to lead PSC to a 62-45 victory over host MIT in the championship game.

Morse was selected tournament MVP, and was joined on the All-Tournament Team by PSC sophomore Courtney Jacques (Belmont, NH). Jacques tallied seven points and six rebounds Saturday, and was PSC’s leading scorer with 13 points in Friday’s first round win, a 69-43 verdict over Wentworth.

The Panthers also got a strong performance from freshman Kate Fillion (Littleton, NH), who matched Morse with 14 points. Sophomore Lynn Hersey (Dexter, ME) added 11 points in Friday’s winning effort.
