Jarvis drops season-high 33 in setback to Yellowjackets

The William Smith College basketball team’s second-half comeback fell just short as the Herons fell 82-73 to the University of Rochester in a nonconference matchup in the Louis Alexander Palestra. The Herons fall to 0-4 on the season while the host Yellowjackets move to 3-2.

Senior Brooke Jarvis led William Smith with a season-high 33 points and 10 rebounds for her second double-double of the season. Jarvis shot 54% from the floor and 86% from the free throw line to combine for 33 points. She added one block, one steal and one assist in the loss. Senior Fiona Horan chipped in a season-high 12 points for the Herons.

  • Turnovers: William Smith 20, Rochester 17
  • Steals: William Smith 8, Rochester 7

  • Junior Maddie Patrick scored the first four points for William Smith as the Herons and the Yellowjackets traded the early points.
  • Rochester used a late momentum push and scoring from Callie McCulley and Rylee Drahos to extend its lead to 11 heading into the second quarter.
  • The Yellowjackets continued to build on its momentum with small runs throughout the second quarter. Jarvis dropped nine points in the second to keep the Herons within reach heading into the half.
  • Senior Kerstin Kelly stole the ball with 10 seconds remaining in the half and pushed the ball down the court to score a buzzer beating layup with one second remaining in the half to bring William Smith within nine.
  • The Herons continued to claw their way back into the game in the second half cutting their deficit to as little as seven with four minutes remaining in the third after two free throws from sophomore Mara Bledsoe.
  • Down 13 at the beginning of the fourth, William Smith went on a 7-0 run behind five points from Kelly to start the final quarter.
  • The back-and-forth action saw runs from both sides before the Herons went on an 8-0 run including six points from Jarvis to bring William Smith within four points.
  • As the time wound down, the Herons were forced to foul in hopes of getting the ball back, but the Yellowjackets were efficient from the line, sinking five free throws to extend their lead and close out the contest on top, 82-73.


“We played fearless tonight,” said Head Coach Lindsay Sharman. “Every time they made a run, we made a run back. We need to get better on defense, but I love how committed this team is to getting better every time they step on the floor.”


William Smith will be back in action on Tuesday, Nov. 28, when it welcomes Hamilton College to Geneva. Action between the Herons and the Continentals is set for 7:30 p.m. in Bristol Gymnasium.
