The Wells College men's basketball team wrapped up a two-game trip to Naples, Fla. and lost by an 82-51 score against Suffolk University on Sunday, Dec. 30.

Suffolk led 44-16 at halftime. The game was much more even in the second half as Suffolk outscored Wells 38-35 in the second half.
Suffolk had 23 more field-goal attempts and totaled 18 offensive rebounds. The Rams shot 14-for-33 from behind the 3-point line. Wells made three from behind the arc in 16 attempts.
Rich Ross led Wells with 17 points, A.J. Nesci added 13 points, and Jalen Tribble had 10 points. Ross had 10 rebounds and Tribble had eight rebounds. Dylan Frost had three blocked shots and a steal to go with five points.
