WATERVILLE, Maine --- With one starter missing the game and another being injured in the second half, the Colby College men's basketball team fell 82-69 to Bates College on Wednesday night at Wadsworth Gymnasium.

Bryan Wholey (Marshfield, Mass.) and Chris Wilson (Brewer, Maine) both had 17 points to lead Bates in the non-conference game.

Bates improves to 5-0 overall, while Colby falls to 2-3. The two teams will play their New England Small College Athletic Conference game at Bates on February 9.

Zak Ray (Bangor, Maine) added 16 points and six assists for the Bobcats, while Rob Stockwell (Temple, N.H.) had a double-double with 15 points and 13 rebounds.

Drew Cohen (Briarcliff Manor, N.Y.) led all scorers with 23 points, six rebounds and three blocked shots. With Bates leading 59-53 with 6:48 left in the contest, Cohen went down with an injury and was unable to return to the game. Bates slowly pulled away from that point.

Colby, which also played without starting shooting guard Mark Gaudet (Bingham, Maine) because of illness, got 13 points from Nick Farrell (Aspen, Colo.).

The game was tied 33-33 at halftime after Bates led by as much as 10 points in the first half.
