A stellar performance from sophomore Andrew Sargeantson ensured Bowdoin's 92-75 victory over Thomas College on Wednesday night. The Polar Bears snapped a two-game losing skid to improve to 12-7.

Sargeantson, who shot 80 percent from the floor, notched 27 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, both career highs for the sophomore.

Commenting on Sargeant-son's record, Head Coach Tim Gilbride said, "Andrew played a very good game at both ends of the court."

Aided by a strong first-half effort from junior John Goodridge, the Polar Bears held a comfortable 54-40 lead at the half. Goodridge scored 11 points, hitting three three-pointers in a row to close out the half.

Sargeantson hit four consecutive shots to open the second half, prompting Bowdoin to go on a tear, pushing the lead to 23 points. Thomas answered, narrowing the gap to just seven points with nine minutes of play remaining.

But Bowdoin closed out the game effectively, going on a 12-4 run in the final six minutes to guarantee the victory.

Seargeantson was not the only Polar Bear to reach double digits. Co-captain Kyle Petrie grabbed 20 points and 11 rebounds, Goodridge contributed 11 points, while sophomores Andrew Hippert and Jordan Fliegel each had 10 points.

The Polar Bears have five regular-season games remaining, which include bouts against conference foes Wesleyan, Connecticut College, Middlebury, and perennial powerhouse Williams.

Gilbride remains optimistic about the remainder of the season.

"The conference [NESCAC] standings are still wide open, so our goal is to win as many conference games as possible and to be playing our best basketball of the year by the end of the season," he said.
