Jan 3: In a game slowed to a crawl by 64 foul calls, the Clarkson University Men's Basketball team lost its war of attrition to St. Lawrence on Tuesday night, dropping a 111-105 double overtime decision at Burkman Gymnasium. The Golden Knights saw their record evened at 5-5 overall while dropping to 0-1 in league games, while St. Lawrence remained unbeaten in conference action at 3-0 and moved to 9-1 on the season. The 216 total combined points were the most ever in the series between the two teams, and the game also marked the first time that both teams surpassed the 100-point plateau in the same game. Clarkson led for nearly the entire first half after scoring the first basket, seeing the game tied seconds later, but regaining the lead on free throws at 17:57. From there, the Knights rode the inside game of Derek Hart, as the senior forward was virtually unstoppable with 18 points on 7-for-10 shooting from the field and a 4-for-4 effort from the free throw line. That line helped Clarkson considerably, as the rest of the team shot 6-for-18 from the floor and only 1-for-5 from the free throw line. However, the effort from Hart was enough to quell any runs by St. Lawrence. Up by seven at the break, Clarkson saw its lead quickly diminish to just two within two minutes of the start of the second half. However, the Knights again had plenty of answers for the Saints, gaining a double-digit advantage midway through the half. Unfortunately for Clarkson, St. Lawrence would not go away, reducing the lead with timely 3-pointers and putting together some full-court pressure in the final five minutes. That pressure saw Clarkson turn the ball over three straight times to allow the Saints back within a basket, but the Knights were able to take advantage of key baskets from Malaquias Canery. The sophomore guard finished off a three-point play with 1:46 to go and then hit a floater with 33.7 seconds left to give Clarkson a four-point advantage. Canery was whistled for his fifth foul a few seconds later, allowing the Saints back to within three. A possession later, the Saints tied the game for just the second time in the contest when Kyle Kobis hit a 3-pointer with 10.1 seconds to go. In overtime, Clarkson quickly took the lead, but a steal and a dunk by Ben Crawford tied the game at 2:24 for St. Lawrence, and a foul 46 seconds later sent Kyle Edwards to the line, where he made two to give the Saints their first lead in the game. With 58.2 seconds to go, Kobis made a layup and converted a free throw to give St. Lawrence a three-point advantage, but an intentional foul at the other end saw Matt Higgins bury a pair of free throws and give Clarkson an additional possession. Off that extra chance, Derek Hart was sent to the line and helped the Knights regain the lead with two more free throws with 44.3 seconds to go. Willie Zachery didn't let that slow down the Saints offense as he made a jumper from the top of the key just 4.5 seconds later. Clarkson would have had a chance to tie or take the lead again, but Derek Hart was called for a surprising offensive foul, which disqualified him for the game. Two free throws at the other end gave St. Lawrence a three-point advantage, but Barryn Shark made a huge layup and hit the extra free throw to tie things up once again and sending the game to yet another overtime session. The second overtime saw St. Lawrence utilize the depleted Clarkson bench as three starters and two key reserves were out of the game. The Saints made a few free throws to take the lead and then extended their advantage to as many as six. A 3-pointer from the top of the key by Aidan Frank pulled the Knights back to within three with 40 seconds to go, but St. Lawrence's advantage was too much to overcome as they were able to make free throws down the stretch to clinch the win.   Hart finished with a career-high 35 points to lead the Knights, while Drew Zlogar added a double-double on 15 points and 11 rebounds. Canery added 15 points before fouling out and Barryn Shark scored 13 points, all of them coming in the two overtime periods. For St. Lawrence, Willie Zachery tallied 31 points, going 17-for-20 from the free throw line, while Kyle Edwards accounted for 23 points and 10 rebounds. Kyle Kobis had 12 points and 12 boards and Ben Crawford tossed in 16. St. Lawrence made the most of its opportunities from the free throw line, going 47-for-57 in the game.

The first 20 minutes played out like two separate quarters as SUNY Canton scored nearly half of its points in the first six minutes of the period. The Kangaroos raced out to a 17-4 lead in just 5:24, capped off by a steal and a dunk from Romario Fletcher, forcing the Knights to take a timeout to regroup. The opportunity just to catch their breath helped the Knights as they began to shake off their early slump from beyond the 3-point line. Clarkson made just one of its first nine attempts from long range in the early going, while SUNY Canton was shooting 73.3% overall. That changed with the insertion of freshman Matt Higgins, who buried three 3-pointers in just eight minutes. Inspired by the first-year collegian's play, several other Knights started making shots outside as well, including two straight threes from Matthew Hornak that brought Clarkson back within four (29-25). SUNY Canton would extend its lead to eight points on two occasions down the stretch, but a Liam Ellis trey with the clock winding down pulled the Knights back to within two at the break, the closest they had been since the first minute of the half. Higgins and Ellis each had nine points to lead Clarkson, as the Knights recovered from their slow start to go 9-for-23 from beyond the arc. SUNY Canton's Adrian Williams tossed in 11 points, with all of them coming in the first eight minutes of the half. The Roos' Sam Annorh also added 13 points while Fletcher chipped in 10 points.  In the opening minutes of the second half, the two teams traded the lead on a handful of occasions, but a jumper by Matt Hornak at 17:25 gave Clarkson the lead for good. That basket by Hornak began a 17-4 run that was capped off by a Mike Hayduk 3-pointer at 13:33. Hayduk was just getting started, however, as he buried seven 3-pointers in the second half en route to a game-high 23 points. He shot 0-for-4 in the first half before his offensive outburst in the final 20 minutes. With Clarkson shooting well from the perimeter and having established Hart as a force in the paint, SUNY Canton was just trying to play keep up. But after a strong first half in which the Roos shot 55.6% overall (15-for-27), they couldn't maintain their pace, going just 9-for-28 (32.1%) in the second half. On the other hand, Clarkson racked up 58 points in the second half.

More of the Latest Plattsburgh Men's Basketball Stories

March 4: The Plattsburgh State men's basketball team saw its season come to an abrupt end at the hands of Fitchburg State on Friday night as the Falcons took down the No. 23 ranked Cardinals 84-81 in the first round of the NCAA Division III Men's Basketball Tournament at Memorial Hall.   The Cardinals committed 19 turnovers on Friday, including three crucial blunders in the game's final two minutes and change.   Needing a three to tie Fitchburg State at the end of regulation and force overtime, Plattsburgh State had nine seconds to work with coming out of a timeout. The Cardinals unfortunately never got a great attempt as Eli Bryant was forced to put up a prayer from way beyond the arc. The shot was no good and Plattsburgh State would not get another chance to tie as time ran out.   After the visiting Falcons registered the first points of the game, the Cardinals quickly took a 3-2 lead thanks to Edward Correa's first of four triples on the evening. Correa was the main reason why Plattsburgh State only trailed one time the rest of the first half as he netted 17 points in shooting 6-of-9 from the floor, including 3-of-6 from three-point range in the opening stanza.   While the Cardinals held the advantage for most of the first, their lead never grew over seven points, as Jaleel Bell kept his team right in the mix.   Bell exploded in the second half with 19 points, going 7-for-10 and a perfect 2-for-2 from long range. The junior finished with a game-high 30 points and tied for a team-high five rebounds.   The end of the first half featured a quick change of momentum as the Falcons blew a chance at taking a lead into halftime by missing a layup with 10 seconds left. Kyle Richardson grabbed the rebound and found Xavier Thomas, who then found Edward Correa for a layup with three seconds left. The Cardinals took a 37-34 lead into the locker room.   Plattsburgh State built on its momentum early in the second as it took a double-digit lead for the first time in the game 3 ½ minutes in. Xavier Thomas found Majestic Grigg underneath the basket for an easy layup to make the score 49-38 in favor of the Cardinals. Grigg had his best game of the season on Friday night as he totaled 10 points on 5-of-6 shooting.   At that point, the Falcons began to find themselves and rattled off a 10-2 run to cut their deficit to just three. Plattsburgh State responded with a layup by freshman Ian Howard, but Bell answered right back with one of his two threes in the second half to make it a two-point game at 13:31.   After Correa starred with 17 points in the first half, Richardson one upped him with 20 in the second, highlighted by a nifty lay-up while getting fouled to put the Cardinals up 59-51 with 12:50 showing on the clock.   The Plattsburgh State offense went cold following that sequence, as the team missed its next four shots as well as a pair of free throws. With just a tick under nine minutes left, an Anthony Muccoli three gave Fitchburg State the lead at 62-61; the Falcons' first lead of the game since the 6:23 mark of the first half. Back-to-back triples from Lance Hill and Jaleel Bell would up the Falcons' lead to 70-65.   Fitchburg State got to the foul line 18 times in the second half, and made Plattsburgh State pay by making 15 of those 18 attempts.   The Memorial Hall crowed needed something to get them going, and Richardson provided a spark by hitting a three with 4:12 left that got the Cardinals to within four points at 78-74. Following a pair of missed jumpers on the other end, sandwiched by two Richardson free throws, Eli Bryant sunk a triple to give Plattsburgh State a 79-78 lead.   From the point on however, the Cardinals shot just 1-for-5 and turned the ball over three times. The Falcons meanwhile went 4-for-5 from the free throw line and got a big layup from Bell with just over a minute left to give them an 82-79 lead.   Instead of going for a quick score down by three now with 30 seconds remaining, the Cardinals took over 20 seconds to complete their possession, which culminated with a Richardson layup to make the score 82-81 in favor of Fitchburg State. Plattsburgh State was now forced to immediately foul and hope a few missed free throws would benefit them.   Unfortunately, Josh Bosworth made both attempts from the charity stripe make it a three-point game.   Instead of fouling Plattsburgh State, Fitchburg State came up with a big defensive stop to close out the game and advance, as the Cardinals never got a great look from three.   Both senior Richardson and Correa shined in the final games in Cardinal uniforms. Richardson finished with 26 points to go along with 15 rebounds while Correa totaled 20 points and had six boards.   Bell's 30 points led the Falcons, who were also helped out by Lance Hill's 17 points and five rebounds.   Fitchburg State advances to the second round and will face Johnson & Wales University, who knocked of Trinity College 75-73 in the first game at Memorial Hall Friday night. Saturday's second round matchup is set for a 7 p.m. start time.   The Cardinals close out their season with back-to-back losses and finish with a 21-6 record. The team accomplished much more than anyone expected, and has much to look forward to in 2016-17 despite losing three key players in Kyle Richardson, Edward Correa, and Xavier Thomas.

The second quarter was more to the Saints' liking as they ended the half with a one-point lead. Clarkson struggled from the field in the second quarter, shooting just 3-for-15 with four turnovers. Though the teams would trade baskets in the first moments of the second half, the third and fourth quarters belonged to Clarkson. While St. Lawrence was shooting 9-for-25 in the second half, the Golden Knights made mid-range shots and buckets from the outside. The key for the Knights came late in the third quarter, when Clarkson led by just seven. With time winding down in the period, Stephanie Grobe momentarily lost the ball, but was able to gather herself and buried a 3-pointer. Due to the possession arrow point their direction, the Knight got the ball to start the fourth quarter and immediately expanded their lead to 12.

Cori Beck hit a 3-pointer at the 7:40 mark to pull Houghton within three (34-31), but that was the last time that the Highlanders would make a field goal attempt for the next eight minutes. By then, Clarkson led by double figures thanks to consistent scoring from several players.

April 29: SUNY Potsdam Director of Athletics James Zalacca has announced that Brittany Cohen, former SUNY Cortland standout and granddaughter of Bears Hall of Famer Stan Cohen, will be the new head coach of the women's basketball program.   "Her success as a player within the SUNYAC combined with her overall knowledge of our conference and ability to establish positive relationships quickly moved her to the top of an extremely talented applicant pool", said Zalacca. "Her youthful exuberance and work ethic honed during her experience in both the college and professional game should lend itself well to reestablishing our basketball program. The Cohen legacy has always commanded respect and admiration within our area and state. Grandpa Stan is sure to be smiling proudly. We're thrilled to have Brittany joining our staff and can't wait for her arrival on campus and beginning work with our program."   Cohen, a Fayetteville native, was a two-time SUNYAC Player of the Year and a WBCA Honorable Mention All-American with the Red Dragons.

More of the Latest Plattsburgh Women's Basketball Stories

Nov. 19: Down by just two points with just six seconds remaining, the Plattsburgh State women's basketball team was dealt a crippling blow by an ill-timed turnover before the Cardinals saw a last-second three-ball by Stephanie Linder bounce off the iron in a 60-58 non-conference setback to Norwich University in Memorial Hall on Wednesday night. Outside of the final 6:22, the Cardinals (1-2) trailed the Cadets (2-1) just once – for a period of 1:22 in the first half to be exact. Neither team shot particularly well from the field, as the Cardinals (19-of-63, 30.2-percent) edged out the Cadets (18-of-60, 30-percent) in that category. In addition to losing the battle on the scoreboard, though, Plattsburgh State was out-rebounded by a 52-41 margin by their Vermont rivals. Of Norwich's final 13 points in the non-conference battle, all but three were scored from the charity stripe and each marker save four through that stretch was pumped in by the Cadets' Aliah Curry who finished with a game-high 23 points. Curry would open the scoring with a painted area jumper, but Brittany Marshall and Jax Miller banged back-to-back long balls to put a charge into the Plattsburgh State faithful and give the home squad a 6-2 lead 2:22 into things. Trouble reared its head early on for the Cardinals in the form of the official's whistle as junior post player Devona Paul was hit with a pair of personal fouls in the first 4:20 of the ballgame. Minutes later, sophomore Jessica Dolan received two citations for fouls which left Plattsburgh State with little choice but to try and formulate an effective game plan from outside the key to secure the win. It appeared as though the scheme was working when the Cardinals opened up a 15-8 edge with 7:41 remaining in the opening stanza. An 8-0 run which culminated with a mid-range splashdown from Jax Miller was all the offense Plattsburgh State could muster for 4:19, though. Their lead dwindling down to a mere two points after a Tory Kethro jumper and a three-point hit from Shyann Josler, the Cardinals called on Allie Taylor – who was making her first start at an NCAA institution – to right the ship. The junior out of Hannibal, N.Y., accounted for the next six points for Plattsburgh State and helped the home squad close out the half on a 9-6 surge. Heading into the last 20-minute period of the night, the Cardinals felt as though their luck had begun to change for the better. Although Kayla Mercer slung in five points for the Cadets, Plattsburgh State pushed right back and pushed its edge to eight points (34-26) on the strength of a downtown swish by Marshall. Norwich, though, continued to resist the Plattsburgh State scoring onslaught and trimmed the Cardinals' advantage to one on four occasions before the Cadets retook the lead for the first time since 13:05 in the first half. Mercer drilled a step-back three-pointer with 6:21 to go, setting up a frantic fight to the finish for both clubs. The vast majority of the action during the final stages of the game occurred from the foul stripe, but Plattsburgh State freshman Shawna Thornton plundered the rock from Curry and sunk a fast-break layup to knot things at 47-all as 5:45 shone on the clock. With that, though, Plattsburgh State found itself almost unable to buy a basket. The Cardinals finished the game with a 1-for-6 showing from the field and committed six turnovers in the closing minutes. Facing a 54-49 deficit with 2:36 to go, the Cardinals stormed back to take the lead by employing a 7-0 run which was cued by a Misha Green jumper in the paint. Green, a senior, put the finishing touches on the surge with a make at the free throw line to put the Cardinals up 56-54 with 46 ticks to go. Mercer, though, played the role of the hero for the Cadets on the ensuing possession. Her three-point attempt with 31 seconds remaining was right on target, and after a highly questionable turnover call by the officials on the next Plattsburgh State trip down the floor, Curry hit three free throws in the final 18 seconds to close things out. The Cardinals hit 16 of their 20 attempts at the charity stripe (80-percent), but were a woeful 4-of-22 (18.2-percent) from long range. Marshall recorded a team-high 15 points for the Cardinals while Taylor added 12. Linder put forth a well-rounded effort of nine points, seven rebounds, three steals and two assists in the loss. Mercer added 15 for the Cadets while Heather LeBlanc pulled down a game-high 15 rebounds. The road beckons to the Cardinals once again, but not before Plattsburgh State takes a basketball hiatus of nearly two weeks. On Tuesday, Dec. 2, the Cardinals will see how they stack up against Liberty League and North Country nemesis St. Lawrence University. Tip-off in Canton, N.Y., is scheduled for 6 p.m. 

Nov. 16: Going toe-to-toe with its first of three top-25 opponents of the 2014-15 campaign, the Plattsburgh State women's basketball team traded blows with No. 15/17 ranked New York University before succumbing to a large second-half run by the Violets and dropping an 86-70 decision in the championship game of the NYU Tip-Off Tournament on Sunday afternoon at the Coles Sports Center. Doing all she could to help the Cardinals in their quest for a 2-0 start was senior Brittany Marshall who finished with a game-high 21 points on 8-of-13 shooting. As a team, the Cardinals shot the ball at a 40.3 percent (27-of-67) clip, but the depth and experience of the Violets eventually wore Plattsburgh State down. Instead of trying to force the issue down low against NYU's interior defenders, Plattsburgh State took up residence from beyond the three-point arc and thrived from there early on. The Violets netted the first two markers of the game, but Marshall and junior Stephanie Linder canned back-to-back long balls which gave Plattsburgh State a 6-2 lead just 2:07 into the non-conference fight. NYU managed to tie things up with a 4-0 burst, but fortunately for the Cardinals, Allie Taylor picked up right where she left off the previous afternoon and launched a 6-0 Plattsburgh State run with a layup. Marshall followed suit with one of her own before sophomore Jessica Dolan took a pinpoint pass from Taylor and connected on a fast-break jumper. With an upset bid fresh in their minds, the Cardinals kept the pedal to the metal. Taylor netted four more points before Devona Paul cleaned up a Dolan misfire and laid the ball in to put the Cardinals up 18-10. First-year player Shawna Thornton showed up with a three-point splashdown before sophomore Jax Miller pulled up from midrange and swished a jumper of her own. Miller's hit handed the Cardinals their largest lead of the game, 23-12, with 9:31 to go in the opening frame. Unbeknownst to the Cardinals, NYU was plotting a comeback and employed the first stages of its plan to regain the lead by using the three-point shot. Amy Harioka set up shop from downtown and knocked down consecutive trifectas to kick-start a 17-0 NYU run. The Cardinals couldn't keep up with the Violets during that stretch, going 0-fot-6 from the field and committing four turnovers. Emily Rowe sank a layup with 6:07 remaining in the first half which put NYU on top for good. Forced to watch as the Violets' edge grow to as many as six points, Plattsburgh State finally put a halt to the sizable scoring burst when Taylor took a trip to the charity stripe and knocked down a pair of attempts. Their offense finally coming around after a lengthy break, the Cardinals chipped away at the Violets' lead, eventually shrinking it all the way down to one when Thornton split a pair of free throws as the clock showed 1:31. That was as close as the Cardinals would come, though, as NYU pumped in five of the last six points in the opening stanza to take a 38-33 edge into the halftime break. Marshall represented two-thirds of the Cardinals total offensive output in the first 3:10 of the deciding frame. The Malone, N.Y., product rattled home a pair of mid-range jumpers to pull Plattsburgh State within one – 40-39 – for the final time. From there, the Violets seized control of matters by employing a 10-0 run which featured scores from a trio of players. Marshall and Paul combined for the next seven Plattsburgh State points to keep the Cardinals within shouting distance (54-46), but the balance and dominant interior game of the Violets continued to keep the visitors off-balance. A 46-24 edge in points in the paint belonged to the nationally-ranked home squad who increased its lead to as many as 19 by the time the final horn sounded. Megan Dawe amassed a team-high 19 points for the Violets to lead a quintet of NYU players who finished with 10 or more markers. Kaitlyn Read added a 13-point, 11-rebound double-double for the home squad who shot 47.7 percent (31-of-65) from the field including a scorching 17-of-28 (60.7 percent) mark in the final frame. Taylor finished with 14 points in another excellent outing for the Cardinals while Paul chipped in 11 and a team-best eight rebounds.
