The Penguins are on a five game win streak after beating Holy Names University, 76-65 Wednesday night at the Conlan Center. Led by senior center Connor Haysbert, who finished the night with his third double-double of the season, Dominican has been on a roll lately highlighted by their 94-77 win over Hawaii-Hilo, and defeating nationally ranked Dixie State (#20) 97-88.
“The main reason for this win streak is that as a team we have really committed ourselves to out rebounding our opponents and getting defensive stops,” said Haysbert, who was voted Men’s Basketball Player of the Week from February 3-9. The men will host Notre Dame De Namur Thursday February 13th at 7:30 pm at Dominican University.
