WATERVILLE, Maine -- Colby College senior point guard Nick Farrell (Aspen, Colo.) had a collegiate-high 35 points, had four assists and no turnovers to lead the Mules to a 73-56 non-conference win over Maine Maritime Academy on Tuesday night at Wadsworth Gymnasium.

Farrell was 9-for-15 from 3-point range, including a 6-for-9 effort in the second half when the Mules (8-6) pulled away. Farrell nailed four 3-point shots in a span of 2:23 late in the game to help Colby blow the game open. The nine made 3-point shots ties a Colby record with Patrick McGowan and Ken Allen.
