Just a week removed from earning the program's first NESCAC win in nearly five years and its fourth straight victory overall, Caelin Peters and his Connecticut College Men's Basketball teammates was dealt an 84 - 64 setback by No. 21 Wesleyan on Sunday afternoon at the Charles B. Luce Fieldhouse.
Having just received national recognition as a Top 25 team in the country, Wesleyan looked to exemplify the dominance that earned them such an honor, and wasted no time doing so, taking a 47-35 lead into the half.
While Connecticut found a sliver of hope on consecutive scores from freshman guard Peters and freshman forward Andrew Hartel, but Wesleyan quickly shut the door on the possibility of a Connecticut comeback as consecutive scores from junior guard Preston Maccoux capped off a Wesleyan scoring run that expanded the lead to 80-56.
In 19 minutes of action Peters went 3 for 6 from the field, including 1 for 2 from behind the three point line and 2 for 2 from the free throw line for his 9 points.
Peters also had 3 rebounds, and 1 steal to go along with 3 turn overs.
