Men's hoops rallies for 63-59 win at Framingham State

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. -- Brandeis University sophomore Terrell Hollins (Springfield, Mass.) had a double-double with 12 points and a career-high 14 rebounds, including eight on the offensive glass, as the Judges rallied from a second-half deficit for the fourth time this season to defeat the Framingham State College Rams, 63-59, on the road today.

The Judges, ranked No. 7 in the nation, improved to 6-0 for the second year in a row, as four players scored in double figures in addition to Hollins. Junior Kevin Olson (Rockport, Mass.) came off the bench to tie for team-high honors with 12 points, while senior guard Florian Rexhepi (Skopje, Macedonia) and sophomore guard Andre Roberson (Springfield, Mass.) had 10 each. Rexhepi's 3-pointer with 6:23 left in regulation turned a one-point deficit into a two-point lead that the Judges wouldn't relinquish.

Framingham State (3-4) fell despite three different players scoring 13 points. Josue Almodovar also had a double-double with 13 points and a team-high 11 boards, while Bill Carey and Michael Hines also scored a baker's dozen. Michael Costa led all players with seven assists for the Rams.
