On Saturday, the men’s basketball team (9–15; 3–7 NESCAC) wrapped up its season with a win against Amherst College (14–10; 5–5 NESCAC). The 65–61 win marked the team’s third conference victory of the season and first win against the Mammoths since 2010. Bowdoin finished the first half ahead on an 11–4 run led by Michael Simonds ’24, but traded the lead with Amherst until a Simonds three-pointer late in the third quarter. The Polar Bears maintained their lead by a one-to-five point margin for the remainder of the game but secured the win in the last few minutes with points from Kevin Reeves ’26 and Afamdi Achufusi ’25.


The Nordic skiing team tied for fifth place at the Dartmouth Carnival last weekend.
