WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - John Carroll led a balanced attack with 15 points, Hassan Attia had a double-double and Hartford defeated Division-III Gordon College 80-63 on Sunday.

Attia had 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting and grabbed 10 rebounds. Jack Hobbs, Jason Dunn and reserve Travis Weatherington had 11 points apiece for the Hawks (2-0).

Behind the 6-foot-10 Attia, who had two blocks, Hartford had 36 points in the paint and limited the Fighting Scots to 18.

Hobbs opened the game with a 3-pointer, Dunne followed with a dunk and Hartford never trailed. Andrew Ramirez made a layup midway through the first half to push the lead to double figures but two late free throws had the Fighting Scots within 43-34 at the break.

A 12-0 run, starting with a Carroll 3 and a tip, started a 12-0 run capped by another Carroll bucket that broke the game open. It was 50-38 with 11:43 to play.
