Behind 15 three-pointers, Wings Academy reversed a close contest into a 88-59 victory in the third game of the Big Apple Classic held at St. John's University inside Carnesecca Arena.
Senior guard Ronald Baker tied a Big Apple record by scoring 32 points. He buried seven three-pointers.
Baker's big night offset a nice performance by Siena recruit O.D. Anosike, who produced 24 points, many of them on nice finishes near the rim.
St. Peter's did have a 13-10 first quarter lead as Chris Giordano had six of his 16 points in the first eight minutes of play.
It was still a game heading into the third quarter as the Wings pulled ahead slightly, 32-28. Baker then got scorching hot. He had five three-pointers in the third quarter to help Wings extend the lead 56-45.
Then Baker's teammates got involved with the three-point shooting fun. Dylan Ennis produced four of them on his way to 15 points. Ferguson Drimir had three three-pointers, finishing with 21 points. And Krystian Forest had a three while producing 10 points.
Wings Academy should be a fun team to watch this season. The guards are again their strong part of the team this season. And, judging by the way they shot the ball yesterday, will be a tough team to put away.
