GCC Men Lose to NCCC 82-68 in Championship Game of The Cougar Holiday Classic
GCC was looking forward to a close game for the Championship of the Cougar Holiday Classic, but Niagara County Community College wouldn’t let it happen.
GCC got off to a sluggish start and dug themselves too deep of a hole in the first half, trailing at the end of the half 42-26. NCCC stretched the lead to 25 points early in the second half before GCC picked up their play and went on a run that narrowed the lead to six points with about 6 minutes to go. The Men Cougars were unable to close the gap any further as NCCC pulled away for a 14 point margin of victory.
Deylon Bovell led GCC’s scorers with 20 points and Demetrius Beauford pulled down 13 rebounds. Beauford and Terrell Rankin were named to the Tournament All Star team.
GCC Men play again on Tuesday at GCC against CC of Beaver County.
