Dylan Farinet lives out his hoop dreams with UMW

Perseverance pays off for a Colonial Beach High School sports legend. Three years ago, when Colonial Beach native Dylan Farinet decided to leave Virginia Wesleyan College for an opportunity to play for the University of Mary Washington Eagles men’s basketball team, there were a lot of uncertainties that stood in his way.

It actually took Eagles head coach Ron Wood two years to finally find a home for Farinet in the Eagles’ lineup. Now the Drifter basketball/football legend has become what everyone close to the game knew he would be: a prominent collegiate star who has contributed to the Eagles’ current success as a small power forward.

Ironically, Farinet’s Eagles (24-5) will host Virginia Wesleyan College in the second game of the NCAA Division III Tournament Round of 16 on Friday. Game time is 7:30 p.m., and the location is the famed Anderson Center on the campus of the University of Mary Washington.

Prior the game, Williams College will take on Albertus Magnus College at 5:30 p.m. The winners will play on Saturday at 7 p.m., with the winner advancing to the final four.

The 77-49 victory over DeSales University in the second round of the tournament secured the Eagles’ continued tournament berth. The Eagles surged out to a 38-15 halftime lead over DeSales, taking the momentum and breath out of the Bulldogs. Farinet scored three points, pulled down four rebounds, dished out one assist and recorded one steal during the game.

After the game Farinet said, “The season has been incredible. This confirms the reason why I play the game, and after seeing the support of our fans, it becomes apparent why we’ve been so successful.”

During the initial first round of the tournament, senior guard Bradley Riester scored a game high 22 points to lead the Eagles to their first-ever NCAA tournament win over Springfield College (78-58).

The Eagles shot 46.3% from the floor (25-54), making 12 of 29 three-pointers, while going 16-20 at the foul line. The Eagles controlled the boards (35-25), while forcing 19 Springfield turnovers. The Eagles committed only six turnovers in the game. Farinet posted five points, one block and one assist, while scoring 1-2 at the free throw line.

Most recently, Farinet was named to the All-Capital Athletic Conference second team. Riester was named to the first team, while fellow Eagle teammate junior Taylor Johnson was named to the league’s second team.
