MONTVILLE, CONNECTICUT -- At first, it didn't look like Quincy Douby (right), who previously had sported a long hairdo. But when the slender figure took the court last night for St. Thomas More, the long-range bombs he converted reminded everyone who he is.
Douby scored 30 points, including six three-pointers, to lead St. Thomas More to a 76-67 victory over Les Nomades College Montmorency, a team that features some division one talent.
Douby three's came around the NBA range last night. This is no surprise for those who remember Douby's previous years at Grady High School in Brooklyn. But the now short-haired Douby played with intensity on the defensive end too. To play for Jere Quinn at St. Thomas More, you better play tough man-to-man defense or you will sit.
Besides Douby's great effort, Loren Stokes added 17 points. Stokes has signed with Hofstra while Douby has inked a letter of intent with Rutgers. Both sparkled last night. The staff of Hofstra was on hand to watch Stokes score most of his points (12) in the second half as STM rallied from a 42-38 deficit at the half. At one point during the first half, STM trailed 33-22.
"Quincy has done a good job for us," said Quinn, who recently won his 600th game as head coach at St. Thomas More. "He is working hard on the court and in the classroom."
Jean Philippe Morin, who has signed with Central Connecticut State, was very impressive for the losers. He scored 17 points while guard Francois J-Yelle also contributed 17.
