HAVERFORD SPOILS MEN’S BASKETBALL BID FOR 4-0

Johnny Elefterakis hit a long three-pointer with 3.9 seconds left to give the Haverford men’s basketball team a thrilling 66-63 win against
Chris MacIntosh
Justin Fields took this jump pass from Chris MacIntosh and made a layup late in the first half for a 28-24 lead.
Muhlenberg in the Centennial Conference opener for both teams.

The loss spoiled the Mules’ bid to start a season 4-0 for the first time in nine years.

In a tight game in which neither team led by more than six points, Muhlenberg (3-1, 0-1) took a 61-60 lead when junior Justin Fields hit both ends of a one-and-one with 1:07 to play. Elefterakis’ three-pointer - his first in eight attempts - 15 seconds later gave the Fords (2-2, 1-0) a 63-61 edge.

The Mules tied the score on junior Tom Scott’s tipin with 25 seconds on the clock, setting the stage for the game-winning 25-footer.

Scott could only manage an off-balance three-pointer at the final buzzer.

Fields and freshman Michael Bernardini fueled Muhlenberg’s best run of the game, a 9-0 spurt that turned a five-point deficit into a 55-51 lead at the seven-minute mark. Bernardini scored six of his career-high eight points and Fields had two steals and basket in the run.

Senior Jimmy O’Brien led the Mules with 13 points and seven rebounds, while Scott finished with 12 points.
