The Cougars Complete Their First Semester Schedule

The men’s basketball team fell to Mohawk Valley on Saturday, 83-78. The game was back and forth until the remaining seconds of regulation. Mohawk Valley was up three with 3.3 seconds remaining and the Cougars’ homerun play was unsuccessful, which forced them to foul. Mohawk Valley converted on both free throws, which put the Cougars down by five. Alex Makur’s (Toronto, Ontario) three attempt in the final second was no good when the buzzer sounded.

Alex Makur was the team’s leading scorer with 23 points. Makur also pulled down 6 rebounds. Rastafari Brown (Utica, NY), who played in front of his home crowd, netted 21 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. Josh Henderson (Rochester, NY) added 18 points and Andrew Gould (Brooklyn, NY) chipped in 10 points.

The men enter the semester break with an overall record of 3-5. They open the New Year at Sheridan College (Canada) at 3pm on Saturday January 5, 2008.
