The Genesee Men’s Basketball team lost to #5 ranked Erie Community College in their final home regular season match 99-80. Freshmen Deylon Bovell (Brooklyn, NY) and Dominique Aberdeen (Baldwin, NY) led the Cougars with 19 points each. The loss puts the team 17-11 on the season.
From the start the two teams battled back and forth with Erie taking a two point lead into the locker room at halftime (47-45). The intense action quickly resumed as the teams stayed within five points of each other for most of the second half, including a couple of lead changes. However, Erie’s size and rebounding took over late in the game in the game allowing them to stretch the lead.
Genesee will close out their regular season this Saturday as they travel to take on Alfred State College at 4 pm.
