He averaged 28.5 points per game, converting on a remarkable 68% of his attempts from the floor. The 5'9 guard totaled a career-high 31 points and shot 72.2% from the floor in the Warriors 66-63 win over St. Thomas Aquinas College on December 19. Samuels returned after the break and continued his hot-hand, connecting on 71.4% of his attempts from behind the arc and 83.3% of his attempts from the line as he scored 26 points in a 73-55 loss at Dowling.
Samuels would continue to lead the Warriors in scoring, assists, & steals during the last two most recent games vs. New York Institute of Technology (ECC) & Chestnut Hill College (CACC).
