W&M’s Gabe Dorsey Sets School Record in Senior Day Win over Hampton

(Tribe Athletics)

WILLIAMSBURG — On a day in which William & Mary honored its Senior Class, it was junior Gabe Dorsey that stole the headlines.

The sharpshooting guard knocked down five of W&M’s 15 3-pointers and in the process broke Marcus Thornton’s school record for treys in a season, leading the Tribe to an 85-73 win over Hampton in the regular-season finale.

W&M (9-22, 4-14 CAA) started fast in both halves with 9-0 runs to set the tone on the way to sweeping the season series with the Pirates. The Green and Gold dished out 20 assists on its 29 made field goals and shot 45.3% in the win.

Gabe Dorsey finished with 19 points and was one of four Tribe players in double figures. Sophomore guard Trey Moss recorded his sixth 20-point game of the season on an efficient 7-of-13 shooting. Sophomore Chase Lowe posted his team-leading fifth double-double with 13 points and 13 rebounds to go along with six assists.

Prior to tip, W&M honored its Senior Class of manager Wilson Johnson and guards Sean Houpt and Jake Milkereit. Houpt celebrated the day by hitting 5-of-9 from long range and finished with 16 points.

Houpt jumped started the Tribe with back-to-back 3-pointers as W&M scored the game’s opening nine points.

Hampton (8-23, 3-15 CAA) scored four in a row to close within 12-9 on a driving lay-up by Trey Thomas with 12:35 left in the opening half.

The lead was still three just a minute later, before Charlie Williams and Houpt hit back-to-back 3-pointers to push the advantage back to nine, 21-12, at the 8:51 mark.

After Tedrick Wilcox cut the Tribe lead to five, W&M used an 8-0 run to open up a double-digit advantage. Four different W&M players scored during the spurt, including Lowe’s lay-up at 5:48 to give the home team a 30-17 lead and force a Hampton timeout.

The lead reached 14, 37-23, after a pair of Moss free throws, but the Pirates closed within eight at the break on a Jordan Nesbitt 3-pointer in the closing seconds.

Like it did in the opening 20 minutes, the Tribe started the second half with nine-straight points. It all came courtesy of the Dorsey brothers as Caleb knocked down the first two and then brother Gabe hit the final of the sequence to push the lead to 52-35 and force a Hampton timeout just 1:17 into the second half.

The advantage reached its largest at 18 on a Houpt 3-pointer five minutes into the second half, before the Pirates answered with a 10-2 run. Hampton scored seven in a row to close within 62-52 on a Tristan Maxwell top key 3-pointer that forced a W&M timeout at 12:06 mark.

Gabe Dorsey hit a corner 3-pointer to break Marcus Thornton’s nine-year school record and pushed the lead back to 65-52 at the 11:16 mark.

The margin was 15 after another Lowe lay-up midway through final period before Hampton used its biggest run of the contest to close within five.

The Pirates scored 10 in a row, including five from Jerry Deng, to cut the deficit to 69-64 with 7:19 left.

Gabe Dorsey and Lowe powered a 9-2 Tribe run to put the game out of reach. The duo combined for all nine points as a Lowe lay-up stopped the HU run and Dorsey capped the run with a triple at the five-minute mark to give W&M a 78-66 lead.

Gabe Dorsey’s five triples gave his 104 for the season, eclipsing Thornton’s previous record of 102 set in 2014-15.

Caleb Dorsey finished with seven points, six rebounds and three assists, while Williams had four points and four assists off the bench. Ja’Von Benson led Hampton with 19 points and nine rebounds off the bench.
