Mar. 14: For the second consecutive season the Plattsburgh State men's basketball team saw its campaign come to a screeching halt against Amherst College as the No. 7-ranked Lord Jeffs bested the Cardinals 87-63 in the sectional semifinals of the NCAA Division III Men's Basketball Tournament at LeFrak Gymnasium on Friday night.   In his collegiate curtain call, senior John Perez amassed a team-high 16 points to lead a quartet of Plattsburgh State players who racked up double digits in the scoring column, but as a whole the Cardinals simply had no answer to the scorching shooting of Amherst.   The Lord Jeffs (26-3) , who shot 55.4-percent (31-of-56) from the field, were led by Tom Killian's game-high 22 points. Aaron Toomey added a double-double of 15 points and a game-high 12 assists while David George finished one blocked shot shy of a triple double, registering 13 points, 11 rebounds and nine rejections.   Although the Cardinals saw their season come to an end, Plattsburgh State (24-6) has very little to hang its head about. Making its sixth appearance in the NCAA Tournament under the leadership of head coach Tom Curle, Plattsburgh State advanced to the sectional semifinal round of the NCAA Tournament for just the third time in program history.   2013-14 also marked the fifth time in the Curle era that Plattsburgh State has reached the 20-win plateau. Chris Manning closed out his career with a game-high eight steals as well as a trio of assists.   Powering the high-scoring Amherst offense during its 7-0 surge to open the sectional semifinal bout was two-time reigning NESCAC Player of the Year in Toomey. The senior registered assists on all three of the Lord Jeffs' field goals during their opening salvo.   In order to counter Amherst's sharp passing and accurate shooting touch, the Cardinals set up shop from downtown. John Perez finally got Plattsburgh State on the board by connecting on a layup with 2:03 elapsed in the first stanza. After a Manning free throw, Edward Correa began the Cardinals' long-range assault with hit first trifecta of the night.   After adding another, Correa gave way to Ezra Hodgson who splashed another Plattsburgh State triple to pull the visiting squad within 13-12 with 15:06 to go in the bout.   With that, though, sophomore Connor Green began to heat up significantly for the Lord Jeffs. The sharpshooter poured in eight points during a 16-4 Amherst offensive blitz that both energized the pro-Lord Jeff audience and left the Cardinals at a loss for any answers.   Facing down a 29-16 deficit, Plattsburgh pulled to within nine after an additional jumper from Hodgson as well as a close-range bank shot from senior Shavar Fields.   Not solely content with facilitating the Lord Jeffs' offense, Toomey began to put his scoring skills on display through the course of a 13-2 surge by the sizzling home squadron. Of the 13 points netted by the Amherst during that span, Toomey scored seven of them himself and assisted on another pair of Amherst long-range hits.   Mike Mitchell finally provided the Cardinals with some much-needed offense by drilling a three-pointer of his own to pull Plattsburgh State within 42-25 with 3:45 to go in the half, but the Lord Jeffs were absolutely relentless in their shelling of the Cardinals.   Amherst went on regain their 20-point cushion by the time the first half was in the books on the strength of 53.1-percent field goal shooting during the frame. Meanwhile, the Cardinals connected on just 33.3-percent of their field goals during the first 20-minute period in which they were out-rebounded by a 25-14 margin.   Grit and toughness were still allies of the Cardinals when the second stanza started up as Plattsburgh State began a 7-0 run with a triple off the hand of Shamoy McIntosh. Perez added a layup before McIntosh finished off the run with a pair of swishes from the foul stripe.   The Lord Jeffs, though, answered right back with a 9-0 run of their own featuring triples by Toomey and Tom Killian to push the edge back to 22 – the largest lead of the tilt.   For the remainder of the one-sided game, the closest the Cardinals would come to the lead was 16 points away. That occurred when Thomas capped a 4-0 Plattsburgh State spurt with an acrobatic layup the made matters 72-56 with 7:47 to go.   Correa, Hodgson and McIntosh added 11 points apiece for the Cardinals who shot 23-of-66 (34.8-percent) during the game. It also marked the final appearance in a Plattsburgh State uniform for Anthony Baker, Fields and Manning.   Fields wraps up his career with 991 points while Perez closed his collegiate days with 981 points.

Mar. 8: Back in 1977, a relatively unknown soul crooner by the name of Theodore DeReese Pendergrass released his self-titled debut album that – unbeknownst to him at the time – would rocket him up the musical charts and into the bright glare of the limelight. The leadoff track on Teddy Pendergrass was an up-tempo ditty entitled, "You Can't Hide From Yourself." In it, the smooth-singing voice man encouraged scores of listeners around the globe to, "understand who and what you are before you can go any further." It appears as though the Plattsburgh State men's basketball team has taken the words of the late Pendergrass to heart. That is because after each and every curveball that could have buckled the Cardinals, they have come to the realization that they are an exceptionally talented basketball team that possesses any number of weapons that can go off on any different night. That mindset has now brought them all the way to one of the furthest points reached by any Plattsburgh State basketball squad in the program's rich history. Senior John Perez amassed a game-high 21 points and completed a monstrous double-double with 15 rebounds to lead Plattsburgh State (24-5) past Eastern Connecticut State (23-7), 70-60, in an NCAA Division III Men's Basketball Tournament second round clash in Memorial Hall on Saturday night. Using eight players, the Cardinals connected on 46.3-percent (25-of-54) of their field goal attempts to punch their tickets to the third round of the NCAA Tournament. After trailing by three points at the half and by as many as four in the early stages of the deciding frame, Plattsburgh State embarked on a 9-0 run that featured a powerful punctuation to take the lead for good. With a number of fouls encumbering the Haverstraw, N.Y., product in the Cardinals' Friday night triumph over MIT, Perez came out eager to prove that he would be nothing short of a dominating force in the Saturday bout. Trachone Preston splashed one of just five Warrior three-pointers to put the visiting squad up 3-0 a little over one minute into the postseason battle. Plattsburgh State took its first lead of the game when senior Chris Manning capped a 4-0 run with a hard-driving move to the tin to sink a layup. One of the primary objectives for Plattsburgh State was to keep high-flying Eastern Connecticut freshman Hugh Lindo off of the glass, but that didn't go quite as planned. The lanky first-year star corralled a game-high 20 rebounds during the tilt and rose high off the court for a powerful two-handed jam which staked the Warriors to a 9-6 lead 4:30 into things. Plattsburgh State regained the lead when Perez put in his first two of eight straight Cardinal markers, but the Warriors used a 9-0 surge that was finished off with five points from Kevin Leumene to earn a 22-17 edge with 8:15 to go in the opening stanza. Xavier Thomas made sure the Cardinals would gain the lead once more in the first half when his layup made matters 25-24 in favor of the home squad, but Leumene added another quintet of points before Lindo hit a layup at the buzzer to put the Warriors on top 31-28 at the break. It became quite clear that the Cardinals wouldn't work their way out of this particular jam by relying solely on the smooth long-range shooting from the night before, so Perez kept his squad afloat in the second half with a pair of old-fashioned three-point plays. Perez knocked down eight of the first 11 Plattburgh State points of the frame while long-range specialist Edward Correa canned a triple to account for the other three, but Eastern Connecticut was thoroughly unimpressed with the Cardinals' arsenal and employed another Preston jump shot to go up 46-43 with 12:49 to go. Mike Mitchell rose up and connected on a long ball of his own before Ezra Hodgson followed suit. In the midst of a 6-0 surge, the Cardinals had yet to make their sizable crowd a factor. That's where Thomas came in. On a well-designed inbounds play, the springy sophomore took to the sky and unleashed a ferocious one-handed slam dunk on an unfortunate Warrior which brought Memorial Hall to its feet. The Brooklyn, N.Y., product put the wraps on his three-point play with a swish at the foul line.  With their raucous congregation cheering them on, the Cardinals would never trail again. Eastern Connecticut trimmed the lead to 54-52 with an additional Preston make as 6:54 remained on the clock, but Shamoy McIntosh responded with a personal 7-0 run which began with a three-point hit. Up 61-52 with 3:25 to go after McIntosh's single-handed offensive outburst, the Cardinals closed things out down the stretch and Mitchell put the final nail in the Warriors' coffin with a fast-break layup which made matters 69-60 with 54 seconds to go. McIntosh (14) and Mitchell (11) rounded out the primary Plattsburgh scoring triumvirate, while Leumene and Preston each chipped in 14 for the Warriors.  In their next game, the Cardinals will be out for revenge against defending Division III national champion Amherst College. The Lord Jeffs ended Plattsburgh State's season in 2012-13, and the Cardinals will battle their NESCAC enemies with a trip to the Elite Eight at stake. The game is scheduled to be played on Friday, with location and time to be announced later in the week.

Feb 22:The SUNY Potsdam men's basketball team ended their season on a high note and put the exclamation point to their Senior Day celebrations by putting away SUNY Fredonia down the stretch for an 82-72 victory Saturday afternoon at Jerry Welsh Gymnasium. Rob Duquette (Peru, N.Y. / Peru) put together a nearly flawless shooting performance, Joe Estramonte (Greenwich, N.Y. / Greenwich Central) played the role of solid floor general and Colin Peterson (Hilton, N.Y. / Hilton) put his second-most points all season as the Bears kept an arm length lead for much of the second half with a red shot shooting display.  Potsdam (5-20, 3-15 SUNYAC) split the season series with the Blue Devils (6-19, 3-15 SUNYAC). Duquette, who was one of three seniors on the Bears, had 21 points on 9-of-11 shooting including a perfect 6-of-6 from the line to go along with nine rebounds and a steal.  Peterson, a fellow senior, scored 16 points on 6-of-11 field goals with three 3-pointers, four rebounds and three blocks.  Senior Brandon Williams (Brooklyn, N.Y. / Boys & Girls) scored seven points and had four rebounds in 19 minutes of action.  "It was good for our seniors to finish that way," said SUNY Potsdam coach Sherry Dobbs Jr.  "I was happy for Brandon and Rob and Colin.  All three of them played really well tonight and made positive contributions.  They've been good leaders and good teammates and that's something that we certainly value from them." Estramonte dished out a career-best 10 assists with 11 points, four rebounds and two steals.  Tom Graf (Elbridge, N.Y. / Jordan-Elbridge) had 11 points including 3-of-5 from downtown. Potsdam shot a season-best 61 percent (29-of-47 from the floor) as a team and made 50 percent (8-of-16) from 3-point range.  In the process, the Bears also gained a 37-17 advantage on the boards.  Fredonia cut the lead to 57-52 with 11:17 remaining, but that's as close as the Blue Devils until they cut it back down to a five-point deficit with just 2:09 left.  Potsdam would put it away though on a jumper and three free throws by Estramonte, a Peterson free throw and two more free throws from junior Zac Adams (Potsdam, N.Y. / Potsdam).  Tyrone Clark had 21 points, nine rebounds, and three assists while Robert Lyles added 20 points and four assists to lead the Blue Devils.  But the Potsdam defense greatly stiffened in the second half.  After allowing Fredonia to shoot 55 percent from the floor in the opening half, the Bears' defense clamped down and held them to just 40 percent from the floor. "I thought we did a much better job defensively on Clark and Lyles in the second half," Dobbs said. "That was a combination of guys doing stuff—Bushen [Frank] came off the bench and gave us some good minutes.  Zac Adams and Brandon and Tom Graf did a nice job of shutting those guys down as much as we can.  Those guys can really score.  They're both really good really players and we did a good job of containing them more than anything else." 

Feb. 18: Potsdam started strong by shooting 51 percent from the floor in the first half and led 33-29 at the break, but a strong second half surge pushed Plattsburgh past Potsdam for a 76-61 win at Jerry Welsh Gymnasium on Tuesday night. The Bears held onto that lead until 13:16 left in the game on a Rishawd Hendricks free throw that put Potsdam up 38-37. That would be the last time Potsdam would have the lead as Plattsburgh's Ezra Hodgson knocked down a 3-pointer to begin a 16-3 run at about the midway point of the second half. Free throws by Edward Correa and John Perez followed by a lay up, two 3-pointers and a jumper from Hodgson pushed the Cardinals' lead to 12 with 8:55 left. Hodgson finished with a game-high 18 points on 7-of-10 shooting (4-of-5 from 3-point range). Shavar Fields and Correa added 11 points apiece while Perez had seven points and 12 rebounds. Junior Zac Adams (Potsdam, N.Y. / Potsdam) took on more of a shooting load with Rob Duquette missing the game with an injury and led the Bears with 13 points. Brandon Williams (Brooklyn, N.Y. / Boys & Girls) had 12 points and junior Tom Graf (Elbridge, N.Y. / Jordan-Elbridge) added 11 points, three rebounds and three assists. Junior Conor Engle (Auburn, N.Y. / Auburn) had six points and nine rebounds. Joe Estramonte (Greenwich, N.Y. / Greenwich Central) had six points, five assists and four rebounds. Potsdam (4-19, 2-14 SUNYAC) rallied earlier in the first half when it trailed 23-12 with 8:43 left. The Bears answered with a 16-4 run to take a 28-27 lead on a Graf lay up. Williams converted a 3-point play on a lay up and free throw, a Rishawd Hendricks jumper, a Colin Peterson jumper, a Hendricks 3-pointer and a lay up by Adams. The Bears were able to get to the free throw line for nine more attempts, but converted just 12-of-24 from the charity stripe. The Cardinals (19-4, 13-3 SUNYAC) made 12-of-15 from the line. Plattsburgh was also aided by a plus 15 advantage on the boards. Potsdam will be back in action to face Buffalo State on Friday at 8 p.m.

Feb 14: The St. Lawrence University men's basketball team used a 9-0 run in the final minutes to rally for a 76-68 win over RIT on Friday evening in Rochester, NY.  First-year student Kieran Miller had a double-double with 12 points and 13 boards, and classmate Kyle Edwards scored a game-high 19 points. St. Lawrence improves to 8-13 (4-8) on the season after shooting 50% (26-of-52) from the floor.  The Saints were also outstanding at the free throw line finishing 19-of-20, while RIT falls to 14-8 (8-5) despite impressive outings from J.P. Reagan and Gabe Nicasio, who had 17 and 16 points, respectively. The Saints were sharp in the first half, shooting 62% (16-of-26) including 4-for-8 from behind the arc.  Miller's seven rebounds also helped the visitors to a 21-10 edge in the category.  St. Lawrence led throughout the half, stretching the lead to seven, 33-26, after lay-ups by Kyle Kobis and Miller and a three from David Hampton. The Tigers were able to cut into the lead, but Al Jones hit a three in the final seconds of the half for a six-point halftime cushion, 41-35. RIT came out hot in the second half, opening on a 14-2 run capped by a three from Nicasio for a 49-43 Tiger lead.  Edwards pulled St. Lawrence back to within striking distance, allowing Condlin to tie the score at 53-53 midway through the period.  As the two teams exchanged baskets in the half, Miguel Lopez gave RIT the lead on a lay-up with 1:58 left, 68-67.  However, the Scarlet and Brown owned the final 2:00 minutes, as Jones scored in the paint followed by a three from Condlin for a 72-68 lead with under a minute to play.  The Saints then put the game away with solid rebounding and four consecutive made free throws to complete the 9-0 run to win 76-68.  St. Lawrence finished with a 36-26 advantage in points in the paint, and owned a 19-of-20 mark at the free throw line while RIT was only 3-of-6. The Saints will be in action again tomorrow, Saturday, February 16 at 4:00pm against Liberty League leading Hobart College in Geneva, NY.  

Feb. 11: St. Lawrence University senior Janpeter Brase scored a team-high 13 points and added seven rebounds against Skidmore College on Tuesday night in the Burkman Gymnasium. However, the Thoroughbreds were able to rally from a six-point halftime deficit behind Aldin Medunjanin's 16 points and nine assists, leading the visitors to a tight 52-50 Liberty League victory. Skidmore, which closed with a 42-31 edge in rebounds, improves to 14-7 and keeps pace for a spot in the Liberty League Tournament at 8-4.  The Saints (7-13, 3-8) held the lead throughout most of the second half, but were done in by 17 turnovers and a 64% mark at the free throw line (14-of-22).  Neither team shot the ball well from behind the arc, combining for a 6-for-36 mark (17%). The Saints held a 25-19 lead at halftime, as their defense held Skidmore to 7-for-31 from the floor including an 0-for-9 mark from behind the arc.  Rookie Kyle Kobis led the way for the home team with eight points, but three personal fouls sent him to the bench in the later stages of the period.  St. Lawrence was able to overcome their own shooting struggles thanks to an efficient offensive presence in the post, as the team scored 16 points in the paint and finished 10-of-22 (46%) from the floor. Though St. Lawrence would stretch the lead to seven on a lay-up by Brady Condlin early in the second, the Thoroughbreds answered with a 10-2 run orchestrated by Medunjanin to reclaim the lead at 31-30.  His no-look pass to Tanner Brooks for a lay-up with 13:37 to go put the visitors back on top and forced a timeout from the Saints.  While Medunjanin was leading his offense on one end, Brase went to work for St. Lawrence, having his way in the post including a huge dunk that swung the energy in his team's favor.  He scored 10 points in the second half, helping the Saints to a four point lead at 43-39 with 4:40 to play.  Erik Sanders delivered a big three for Skidmore when it needed it most to pull Skidmore within one, and after two St. Lawrence free throws, it was Brian Moore from the corner for three to tie the game at 45-45.  Medunjanin gave the Thoroughbreds a 49-47 advantage with 1:14 to play, and after a St. Lawrence turnover, found himself well outside the arc with the shot clock winding down.  He unloaded a desperation three that connected with 15.4 seconds left, putting Skidmore up 52-47. Though rookie Kyle Edwards' off-balance three followed for St. Lawrence with 5.2 seconds left to close the gap to two at 52-50, Skidmore was able to get the ball inbounds and avoid a foul, running out the clock for the come-from-behind victory. Tuesday's game capped a five-game home stand, and the Saints will be in action again on Friday, February 14 in Rochester, NY when they visit RIT at 8:00pm.

Feb 26: The top three scorers from the Clarkson University Men's Basketball team combined for 59 points against Hobart on Wednesday evening, but the output wasn't enough as the Golden Knights dropped the Liberty League semifinal game to the Statesmen 78-69 in overtime. The Golden Knights saw their season come to an end with a record of 16-10 overall, while Hobart improved to 20-6. The game was close throughout, with neither team owning more than a four-point lead in the first half. Clarkson led early, but Hobart rallied back to take the lead briefly before the Knights returned to possess the upper hand. Late in the half, the Statesmen used a 6-0 run to take a four-point advantage (30-26), but a pair of free throws from Felix Abongo (Beacon, NY) and a tip in at the buzzer by Marques Charlton (Deer Park, NY) had the teams knotted up at 30-30 at halftime. In the second half, Hobart looked poised to take control, gaining an eight-point edge (45-37) at the 13:40 mark. However, the Knights chipped away with a 12-4 run and tied the score on a pair of free throws from Charlton at 9:10. From there, the game resembled the first half in its back and forth quality. Hobart had a four-point edge after conversions from Joe Gibbons at the 2:50 mark, but free throws by John Coleman (Potsdam, NY) at the 1:07 mark tied things up for the 10th time. Clarkson had its chances in the final minute, missing three shots and turning the ball over twice in that span. In overtime, Hobart used its advantage in fouls to get to the free throw line, shooting 11-for-14 from the line, with several of those chances coming in the waning moments as Clarkson attempted to climb back into the game. However, Hobart attempted just three shots, making two, in the overtime frame while the Knights were 2-for-7. Clarkson missed a total of four shots in the final 35 seconds, trying to trim the six-point deficit, but none of the attempts would fall, allowing Hobart to come away with the hard fought victory. Charlton finished with a team-high 23 points, shooting 7-for-14 from the field and 7-for-7 from the free throw line. Coleman added in 20 points on 8-for-16 shooting, producing six rebounds and four steals. Coleman's four thefts allowed him to tie the single-season record at Clarkson for steals (69). Abongo also had a solid game with 16 points and eight boards. For Hobart, Richie Bonney had a double-double with 23 points and 14 rebounds and Gibbons produced 19 points on 7-for-13 shooting. Trey Blanding also did well offensively, scoring 18 points on 6-for-11 shooting to go along with four assists and three steals.

Feb 14: A strong first half from Connor Rehbaum gave Hobart College a solid lead at the break and the Clarkson University Men's Basketball team couldn't change the momentum after intermission, dropping a 69-50 decision to the Statesmen in Liberty League action Friday night. The Golden Knights fell to 12-9 overall and 6-6 in the Liberty League, just outside the top four in the conference with four games to go. Hobart improved clinched its spot in the conference tournament by improving to 18-5 overall and 12-2 in conference play. In the first meeting, the Golden Knights had numerous offensive options against the Statesmen, but that didn't prove to be the case in the rematch. Clarkson trailed by a single point (9-8) in the early going, but Connor Rehbaum hit back-to-back 3-pointers midway through the half to cap a 17-3 run and help the Statemen's lead swell to 15. Clarkson slowly chipped away and was back to within six near the half, but Rehbaum hit another 3-pointer on the last possession of the half to give the Statesmen a 33-24 edge. Following a Jeremy Liss (Vestal, NY) lay in at 16:41 that had the Knights back within seven, Hobart went on a 9-0 run to take a 16-point edge. That would be as close as Clarkson would come for the remainder of the game as Clarkson's offense struggled from the perimeter (3-for-11 from beyond the 3-point arc) and the interior (13-for-35, 37.1%) against Hobart's superior size. Sophomore Felix Abongo (Beacon, NY) was the only Clarkson player to finish in double figures, scoring a team-best 17 points on 5-for-12 shooting from the field and a 6-for-6 performance from the free throw line, while adding in eight rebounds. For Hobart, Rehbaum finished with 20 points, going 7-for-13 from the floor including four 3-pointers. Richie Bonney, who had 31 in the first meeting of the two teams, was held to 13 points, but made six of his seven attempts from the floor and controlled the glass with 14 rebounds. Trey Blanding also chipped in 12 points and seven assists for the Statesmen.

Mar. 8: All good things – even the best season ever assembled by a Plattsburgh State women's basketball team – must come to an end. The ending to this season, however, came as a complete surprise to everyone who was following along. Possessing what appeared to be a comfortable 20-point lead in the early moments of the second half, the Cardinals fell victim to a once-in-a-lifetime comeback assault by Castleton State who went on to capture an improbable 76-70 NCAA Division III Women's Basketball Tournament second round overtime triumph in Morrell Gymnasium on the campus of Bowdoin College on Saturday night. Plattsburgh State wraps up their storybook season with a 25-6 overall record, and went on to advance further than any other team in the history of the program had. The Cardinals set new team marks for single-seasons wins as well as conference wins and picked up the program's first-ever NCAA Division III Women's Basketball Tournament victory with a 67-56 triumph over Roger Williams on Friday night.  In her final game in red and white, reigning SUNYAC Player of the Year Kathleen Payne netted a team-high 19 points and put the wraps on another double-double by securing a game-high 10 rebounds. The Goshen, N.Y., product closes the books on what will go down as the best career ever by a Cardinal as she holds the school records in career points (1,722) and career rebounds (759). The owner of no fewer than three single-season bests, Payne poured in 569 points during the final leg of her sparkling career – the most ever in just one season by a Plattsburgh State player. Only four other Plattsburgh State basketball players of any gender have racked up more markers in a single campaign than Payne did in 2013-14. It looked as though a runaway victory by the Cardinals was going to be the outcome if the first 20 minutes were any indication. Plattsburgh State began the frame with a 16-4 run, scoring at will against the highly-touted Castleton State defense. In all, five players contributed to the Cardinals' opening salvo with Brooke Reifinger closing it by connecting on Plattsburgh State's second long ball of the night. A three-point play by the Spartans' Alyssa Leonard cut the Cardinals' advantage to 18-14 with 7:42 to go in the half, but a triple hit by Jax Miller sparked an 18-3 run which made matters 36-17 with 1:29 remaining in the frame. Continuing her impressive play from the evening before, senior Tequilla Lloyd fired in eight points through the course of the first 20 minutes while Payne added 13 on 4-of-9 shooting. Devona Paul's jumper 10 seconds into the second 20-minute stanza gave Plattsburgh State a 40-20 edge before things started unraveling. Liz Douglass and Jade Desroches led the Spartans on a 12-2 run with Douglass pouring in eight of the points during the offensive blitz. Still, the Cardinals didn't appear to be in any real danger as a three-point play by former Spartan Stephanie Linder upped the Plattsburgh State margin to 45-32 with 14:30 showing on the clock. Another powerful scoring push by Castleton came in the form of a 14-2 surge in which Meghan O'Sullivan put in the first five. The only points Plattsburgh State mustered during the run were a pair of free throw makes by Paul, and a field goal was not to be scored by the Cardinals for a stretch of 5:51. Clinging to a 47-46 lead, Reifinger knocked down another triple with 8:39 remaining in regulation to quell the surging Spartans for a moment. Another 12-3 run by the Vermonters, though, put the Cardinals down 59-53 with 5:21 on the clock. Castleton State remained in control, owning a 65-59 lead with 1:17 to go, before Brittany Marshall pulled out some heroics of her own. The junior canned a pair of long balls in the final 1:17 to force an extra session, but Shelby LaBarge took over for the Spartans in the five-minute frame. Of the 11 points scored by Castleton State, LaBarge accounted for all but two and the Cardinals misfired on seven of their nine field goal attempts to wind up on the wrong side of the scoreboard. Castleton State shot 53.1-percent in the second half (17-of-32) after the Cardinals limited the Spartans to an 8-of-31 (25.8-percent) showing in the first stanza. For the game, Plattsburgh State hit 25 of its 73 (34.2-percent) field goal attempts. Also playing in their final games were Lloyd and Reifinger who finished with eight markers apiece. Paul (14) and Marshall (13) rounded out the primary scorers for the Cardinals. Desroches netted a game-high 23 points for the Spartans and four other Castleton State players finished with at least 14.

Mar. 7: Any pregame jitters or nervousness felt by the Plattsburgh State women's basketball team prior to their first round NCAA Division III Women's Basketball Tournament clash with Roger Williams University were all but gone by the end of the game, thanks to a sizable shot of Tequilla Lloyd. Lloyd, a senior, put forth her best collegiate basketball effort so far by posting a game and career-high 18 points to lead Plattsburgh State past the Hawks and into the second round of the national tournament via a 67-56 score on Friday night in Morrell Gymnasium on the campus of Bowdoin College. The Wingdale, N.Y., product was just one important piece to the Cardinals' winning equation as reigning SUNYAC Player of the Year and fellow senior Kathleen Payne registered 17 points and a game-high nine rebounds. Sophomore Devona Paul also finished the night with a double-digit point total by amassing 14 on 7-of-8 shooting from the field. Plattsburgh keeps its storybook season rolling, improving to 23-5 with the program's first-ever NCAA Tournament victory. Roger Williams closes out their finest season in program history with a 22-7 record. All told, the Cardinals put forth a solid field goal performance by hitting 25 of their 55 attempts (45.5 percent) including 54.5-percent (6-of-11) of their tries from beyond the three-point arc. Both of the teams involved in this first-round tournament battle were making their NCAA Division III Women's Basketball Tournament debuts, and it was Roger Williams who came out on a high note. Commonwealth Coast Conference Player of the Year Kaitlyn Bovee put the first points of the evening on the board by way of a three-point basket just 18 seconds into the tilt. Bovee's long-range hit began a 5-0 spurt for the Hawks to begin the confrontation, forcing the Cardinals to play catch-up. A 5-0 surge by Plattsburgh State beginning with a long ball from Payne produced the first of three deadlocks in the early minutes of neutral-court action. Trailing 9-7, Lloyd finished off a 6-0 Plattsburgh State run with a pair of layups to help the Cardinals take the lead for the remainder of the first stanza. Another Plattsburgh State trifecta, this one from the hand of sophomore Stephanie Linder, allowed the Cardinals' edge to grow to 16-11 with 11:15 to go in the first stanza, before the Hawks knotted matters for the final time with a 5-0 scoring blitz of their own. Three-balls from Payne and her senior classmate Brooke Reifinger bookended a 10-3 Plattsburgh State run to make the score 26-19 Cardinals with 6:58 to go in the first frame. The largest lead of the initial 20-minute stretch came when Reifinger put the finishing touches on a 6-0 run with a make at the free throw line. Armed with a 32-24 lead with 2:38 to go in the frame, the Cardinals were able to coast into the locker room with a 34-30 edge at the half. With the Hawks shooting just 32.8-percent (19-of-58) from the field for the game, one of the main reasons why they were still well within striking distance were 20 Plattsburgh State turnovers which translated to 21 Roger Williams points. Making use of a 7-0 run, the Hawks stormed back to tie things up at 41 with 14:02 remaining in the game. Roger Williams remained firmly planted in the driver's seat as free throw hits from Angelica Ariola left Plattsburgh State at a 53-51 disadvantage as 4:54 showed on the game clock. From that point on, Lloyd simply took control of the game, netting eight of her 18 during a 4:21 stretch which all but sent the Cardinals into the round of 32. Junior Brittany Marshall followed up her SUNYAC Women's Basketball Championship Tournament MVP performance by passing out a game-high seven assists while Linder finished with nine markers and two of the Cardinals' five blocked shots. Bovee (16) finished as the high-point performer for the Hawks. Ariola (12), Ari Renwick (11) and Amanda Keane (10) rounded out the primary Roger Williams scoring threats.

Vassar’s Allyson Pemberton spins between St. Lawrence University’s Ellie Gonyeau (34) and Lauren Quattrocchi (21).

Mar. 1: The St. Lawrence University women's basketball team fell to Vassar College on Saturday in the Burkman Gymnasium by the score of 64-60, as the Brewers won their third Liberty League Tournament title in the last four years to advance to the NCAA Tournament.  Allyson Pemberton led Vassar with 24 points to earn Most Outstanding Player honors, while Allison Cady and Kara McDuffee were named to the All-Tournament team for St. Lawrence.  Senior Kelly Legg hauled in a season-high 16 rebounds and had a double-double in the first half with 10 points and 11 boards.  Vassar's victory extends the streak of top seeds in the women's tournament not winning the automatic bid to eight years, as the Brewers head into the NCAA Tournament with a 22-5 record.  St. Lawrence (19-8) had a 33-29 halftime lead, but went 3-for-14 with three turnovers in a 9:00 minute stretch in the second half to allow Vassar to pull ahead. "I thought we really played well today, but we didn't shoot the ball well at all.  We had a lot of good looks at the basket, but it just wasn't our day and didn't put it in the hoop," said St. Lawrence head coach Dan Roiger.  "I felt like if we shot 1-of-3 from behind the arc, we'd win, but we were 5-for-21 and that just didn't get it done." Pemberton's 24 points was a new career-high, while Cydni Matsuoka (13 points, five assists) and Hannah Senftleber (12 points, 10 rebounds) also earned spots on the All-Tournament Team.  McDuffee finished with 16 points to pace St. Lawrence, while Cady added 15 and did an outstanding job guarding Matsuoka. Legg and Cady anchored the Saints in the opening period, as they combined for 19 points while Cady held Matsuoka, the league's reigning Player of the Year, to a 1-for-6 mark from the field.  Pemberton did her part to keep the visitors in the game with 11 points and five rebounds.  Vassar held the lead midway through the half, but the Saints battled back behind 22 points in the paint to take the four-point 33-29 lead at intermission.  The Saints held advantages in rebounds (21-17), assists (9-2) and second chance points (11-2). St. Lawrence stretched its lead to seven early in the second half, but Vassar chipped away and pulled even at 45-45 on a lay-up by Senftleber with 8:50 to play.  The Brewers took the lead on a three by Matsuoka, only to see McDuffee answer with one of her own to tie the game for the ninth time with 7:00 minutes to play. The Brewers were not rattled, though, as Pemberton scored six points in an 8-0 run that vaulted the visitors into prime position to win the league title up 58-50 with 2:58 to play.  McDuffee would answer again with an and-1 and a three pointer on back-to-back possessions, while Lauren Quattrocchi had an uncontested lay-up thanks to steal on the defensive end, pulling the Saints back within two, 60-58, with 1:10 to go. St. Lawrence would have a chance to tie, but a shot clock violation gave the ball back to Vassar after a solid defensive stand.  St. Lawrence fouled Caitlin Drakeley, who made both tries, and after a missed three by McDuffee with under :10 seconds to play, the Brewers were able to exhale and celebrate the 64-60 win. Vassar was 14-of-16 from the free throw line in the second half, while St. Lawrence was only 4-of-5.  The Brewers also shot 40% from the field (10-for-25) in the second, while the Saints managed only 10-for-31 (32%) and 3-for-10 from behind the arc. "Vassar is a great team!  That was an excellent game and it's not one I feel bad about losing," added Coach Roiger.  "I think they will be a good representative of our league in the NCAA Tournament." The Brewers will learn their opponent for the 2014 NCAA Tournament on Monday, and the Liberty L

Feb 22: The St. Lawrence University women's basketball team outscored RIT 40-28 in the second half, surging to a 65-52 victory in the Burkman Gymnasium to advance to the 2014 Liberty League championship game.  Kara McDuffee and Kelly Legg combined for 26 points in the second half as both players finished with double-doubles in the win. St. Lawrence improves to 19-7 on the year and will look to defend its conference win at 3:00pm on Saturday against Vassar College, who defeated William Smith.  RIT ends its season with a 14-12 mark. "The goal was to advance.  It wasn't a pretty game for us, but the third time against a team in the last four weeks tends to look like that," said St. Lawrence head coach Dan Roiger.  "RIT presents some match-up problems for us, but we were able to fight off the challenge.  I thought we played outstanding defense all night long, and though we didn't rebound well in the first 30 minutes, we had a strong finish on the glass that allowed us to get some separation.  We held two of the best scorers in our league to 5-for-27 from the floor – that was a team effort and won the game for us." McDuffee led all scorers with 18 points while grabbing 11 rebounds and Legg chipped in 12 points and 12 boards.  Lauren Quattrocchi and Cassie St. Hilaire each had 10 points, while Ellie Gonyeau chipped in seven points, two rebounds and two assists off the bench.  After struggling in the first half, the Scarlet and Brown shot 40% from the floor and made four threes in the second half to put the game out of reach. RIT was led by Kayla Wheeler's 13 points, while leading scorers Ashlynn Palmitesso and Courtney Tennant scored 11 and nine, respectively.  The Tigers managed only 18-for-63 (29%) from the floor including 3-for-20 and were hurt by 29 personal fouls. Neither team had a lead larger than three points in the first half, though St. Lawrence managed to escape with a 25-24 advantage.  The score was tied six different times, and though each squad had numerous chances to put a run together, poor shooting plagued RIT (8-for-32) while St. Lawrence committed 11 turnovers.  St. Hilaire led all players with eight points while Gonyeau added seven. RIT hung tough throughout the second half, keeping within striking distance by keeping the game within one possession much of the time.  However, the Saints had an answer each time the Tigers made a push, as Quattrocchi hit a three and McDuffee converted an and-1, keeping the visitors from taking the lead. A lay-up by Wheeler with 6:27 remaining pulled RIT within three at 44-41, but Legg delivered a clutch three from the top of the key to give St. Lawrence its largest lead at six, 47-41.  That basket sparked an 8-2 run, capped by another three from Quattrocchi for a nine point lead that the Saints would not relinquish.  RIT would get within five, but no closer as Legg hit another three that put the game away en route to the comfortable 65-52 win. "Vassar is a great team.  They have three of the top scorers in our league and the best player I've ever coached against in Cydni Matsuoka," said Coach Roiger.  "I haven't really found a way to guard her yet.  It will be a great challenge for us to compete on Saturday, but that is the way it should be in a championship game."

Feb. 18: Senior guard/forward Kathleen Payne shot 10-of-19 to score a game-high 28 points and 10 rebounds, sophomore Devona Paul added 16 points and junior Brittany Marshall dished out 13 assists as SUNY Plattsburgh spoiled a Bears' individual milestone achievement in downing Potsdam 88-79 on Tuesday night at Jerry Welsh Gymnasium. Jessica Kouzan (Webster, N.Y. / Webster-Schroeder) scored a team-high 23 points on 7-of-14 shooting-including 5-of-9 from 3-point range-to go over the 1,000 career point threshold. The senior forward now has 1,007 points and needs just four points to pass Rachel Graf (2006-2010) for fifth place on the Bears' all-time scoring list. When Kouzan made a first free throw of two, it allowed Potsdam coach Tara Ruckh to call a timeout and grant Kouzan a nice gesture of appreciation. With the public address announcer making the acknowledgment over the loud speaker that Kouzan had reached 1,000 points, the crowd gave her an ovation. Potsdam (6-17, 4-12 SUNYAC) has two games remaining on the schedule with home contests against Buffalo State on Friday at 6 p.m. and Fredonia on Saturday at 2 p.m. Potsdam only trailed by six at halftime, but fell behind as many as 18 points with 10:12 left in the game. The Bears made one last ditch effort late in the game and it began on a Bailey Weigel (East Amherst, N.Y. / Williamsville East) drive to the hoop and was followed by a Jessica Kouzan 3-pointer and a lay in by Carli Reynolds The Bears' 7-0 run trimmed the lead to 78-70 with 3:19 remaining. But that's as close as Potsdam would get as Plattsburgh (18-5, 13-3 SUNYAC) got big buckets from Payne and Brooke Reifinger down the stretch. Weigel finished with 17 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and a block. Senior guard Chenice Russell (Moira, N.Y. / Brushton-Moira) had 11 points, six rebounds, three assists and two steals. Junior guard Carli Reynolds (Indian Lake, N.Y. / Indian Lake) had 14 points, four rebounds, three assists and two steals.

Feb 14: The SUNY Potsdam women's basketball team (6-15, 4-10 SUNYAC) rallied late and outscored Oswego State (6-16, 2-13) 15-5 in overtime to defeat the Lakers 89-80 on Friday night. Bears senior captain Jessica Kouzan (Webster, N.Y./Webster Schroeder) scored 21 points to move past Maureen Curley '09 into sixth place on the program's all-time scoring list with 959 career points. Kouzan also hauled in 10 rebounds for her third double-double of the season. Junior captain Bailey Weigel (East Amherst, N.Y./Williamsville East) grabbed a career-high 17 boards to go with her 17 points. Laker senior guard Jenn Robbins (Geneva, N.Y./Geneva) hit seven 3-pointers en route to a game-high 31 points. Potsdam never trailed in the first half. The Bears built their lead up to 13 four times in in the opening 20 minutes, but a 3-pointer from junior guard Carli Reynolds (Indian Lake, N.Y./Indian Lake) gave them their largest lead at 33-19 at 5:56. Oswego chipped away at the deficit with a 13-7 run to get within 40-32 at the break. Reynolds scored all of her 13 points by halftime. Potsdam shot nearly 42 percent from the floor in the period. A three from Kouzan at 16:47, put the Bears back up by 12, but they couldn't shake the Lakers. Oswego senior forward Paula Egelston (Fultonville, N.Y./Fonda-Fultonville) answered with a layup 20 seconds later, sparking an 18-0 run to give the Lakers a 56-48 lead. Robbins, who had six points during the span, capped the stretch with a three-pointer with 11:33 remaining. A layup from Robbins gave Oswego a 10-point lead with 5:12 left. Potsdam battled back, closing regulation with a 16-6 run to force overtime. Trailing, by five with 44 seconds on the clock, Kouzan went to work. She buried a three to close to within 74-72 nine seconds later. With 24 ticks left, she stole the ball from Robbins and was fouled attempting a game-tying layup. She sank both free throws to tie the score and Robbins missed the final attempt of the second half. It was nearly all Hannah Kmiecinski (Webster, N.Y./Webster-Thomas) in the extra session. The senior captain hit two 3-pointers and was five-of-six from the line for 11 of Potsdam's 16 points in overtime. Weigel accounted for the other four points as the Bears finished the season sweep of the Lakers, 89-80. Kmiecinski totaled 14 points on the night. Kouzan also had two blocks and two steals, while Weigel filled out her impressive line with seven steals. Lost in the drama was a career-high 12 points from freshman guard Meghan Driscoll (Troy, N.Y./Troy). While the Bears were edged in shooting 42 to 41 percent, they outrebounded Oswego 47-45 and only turned over the ball nine times to the Lakers' 14. Sophomore guard Heather Hebert (Hilton, N.Y./Hilton) had a solid night for Oswego with 15 points, nine rebounds and three assists. Senior guard Lauren Nunziato (West Sand Lake, N.Y./Averill Park) had 10 points, five boards and four assists, while junior forward Haley Witchella (Oxford, N.Y./Oxford) rounded out the group with a six-point, 10-rebound performance.

Feb 22: Free throws down the stretch proved to be enough for Vassar to hold off the Clarkson University Women's Basketball team, as the Brewers closed out the Golden Knights' season with a 66-60 defeat Saturday afternoon at Alumni Gymnasium. The Golden Knights finished off the 2013-14 season with a record of 9-15 overall and 4-12 in the Liberty League while Vassar improved to 20-5 overall and 13-3 in conference play. The Knights scored the first basket of the game, but it was Vassar that would enjoy the most success in the first half. The Brewers scored the next eight points and then midway through the half went on a 9-0 run over the course of three minutes to extend their lead to as many as 13. However, Clarkson would buckle down defensively and start limiting Vassar's open looks. The Knights would crawl back to within eight on two occasions late in the half before the lead would settle at 10 at intermission. Cydni Matsuoka made her first six shots from the field before missing her final two attempts and had a high of 13 points at the half, but the rest of the Brewers shot 8-for-23 overall. Clarkson was 10-for-31 in the half overall, for 32.3 percent. Stephanie Grobe (White River Junction, VT) led the Knights with six points at the break. Clarkson started off the second half by pulling within four, but the two teams would go back and forth for the next 15 minutes, with the Vassar lead fluctuating between as few as three points and as many as nine points. It wasn't until the Knights converted on a pair of fastbreak lay ups by Stephanie Grobe with under four minutes to play that Clarkson pulled to within a basket, 54-52. A pair of free throws and another basket by the Brewers pushed the lead back to six. The Knights wouldn't go away, however, as the final minute saw Clarkson get back to within two points again on a pair of Ashley Loggins (Albany, NY) free throws with less than 30 seconds to go. Down the stretch, Caitlin Drakeley hit a pair of free throws in four attempts and Matsuoka nailed all four of her attempts to keep the Knights at a six-point distance. Grobe finished with 12 points on 6-for-11 shooting for the Knights, while Alyssia Marsal (Clifton Park, NY) contributed nine points, four rebounds, and four assists. Cydni Matsuoka had 27 points to lead Vassar, chipping in five rebounds and five assists while going 10-for-10 from the line.

Feb 14: Falling behind in the early minutes by double digits, the Clarkson University Women's Basketball team had to play catch up for the rest of the contest and was unable to overcome the deficit, dropping a 67-57 decision to William Smith in Liberty League action Friday night. The Golden Knights fell to 8-12 overall and 3-9 in the Liberty League, and coupled with a win by RIT were eliminated from the conference playoff race. William Smith improved its standing to 18-5 overall and 11-3 in league games. Clarkson will take on the RIT Tigers at 2:00 pm on Saturday. Clarkson scored the first basket of the game, but it would be the last time that the Knights would have a lead. William Smith went on a 15-1 run over the next four minutes for a 15-3 edge at the 15:26 mark and two minutes later the Herons were up by 17 (22-5). That early stretch put Clarkson in a tough hole to climb out of, but the Knights played even with the Herons for the rest of the half and the game. Clarkson climbed back to within 10 twice in the first half and trailed by 11 at the half (34-23). In the second half, William Smith pushed their advantage to as many as 19 points, but a late 11-3 run by the Knights drew Clarkson back to within 10 thanks to a three-point play by Stephanie Grobe (White River Junction, VT). Unfortunately it was too late in the game for Clarkson to take advantage of any momentum shift and the Knights finished the contest down by 10. Though Clarkson shot 20-for-48 from the field (41.7%), a considerably better figure than the Herons, William Smith made up for its deficiency by outscoring Clarkson on free throws (22-15), 3-pointers (5-2) and outrebounding the Knights on the offensive end (13-8). Sophomore Ashley Loggins (Albany, NY) led Clarkson with 15 points, shooting 7-for-14 from the floor, and added in five rebounds and four assists. Freshman Alyssia Marsal (Clifton Park, NY) tossed in 12 points on 5-for-7 shooting and also contributed five rebounds. Junior Cara Manfredi (Glastonbury, CT) also produced 10 points. For William Smith, both Chloe Hayter and Jacqueline Murphy came up a rebound short of a double-double, with Hayter scoring 18 points with nine boards and Murphy adding in 12 points and nine rebounds. Erin O'Brien also had 16 points, five rebounds, and five assists.

Feb. 8: One free throw each from Amy Loya and Kate Thompson in the final 15 seconds proved to be the difference as Union College outlasted the Clarkson University Women's Basketball team 54-52 in Liberty League action Saturday afternoon at Alumni Gymnasium. The Golden Knights fell to 8-11 overall and 3-8 in the Liberty League and will travel to William Smith and RIT next weekend. Union improved its standing in the conference at 4-5 and moved to 12-6 overall. Up by just one point with 13 minutes to go, Union went on a 17-4 run over the next eight minutes, including a run of four straight free throws by Cailin Schmeer after a foul and two technical fouls gave her six chances at the free throw line with 7:09 to go in the first half. Union's lead of 13 would shrink to nine at intermission, however, as the Dutchwomen struggled with shooting that wasn't on the free throw line. Neither team was particularly consistent from the field, with Union going just 8-for-30 (26.7%) and Clarkson shooting 9-for-25 (36.0%). In the second half, Union was up by eight points with 16:24 remaining, but Clarkson slowly rallied back as Union was unable to convert many field goal chances. The Knights took the lead at 9:41 on a 3-pointer from Cara Manfredi (Glastonbury, CT), giving Clarkson a modest 42-41 advantage. Union came right back and reclaimed the lead as neither squad had much going offensively. A pair of free throws from Brooke Butkovsky (Monroe, CT) with 4:08 to go gave Clarkson its last lead, 48-47, as Union again came back to take the lead. A Butkovsky layup with 24 seconds to go tied the game, but a foul at the other end gave Loya an opportunity to put Union ahead, and she converted one of her two free throw attempts. A missed jumper for Clarkson ended in a scrum in the paint and the Dutchwomen had the possession arrow and the ball. Another free throw by Thompson made it a full-possession contest and Clarkson was unable to make its 3-point attempt as the buzzer expired. Sophomore Ashley Loggins (Albany, NY) finished with a game-high 18 points and added in nine rebounds, shooting 7-for-9 from the floor. Manfredi also tossed in 16 points for Clarkson. For Union, Kelsey McDonald had 13 points and four assists and Kate Thompson produced 11 points and seven rebounds.

Feb. 8: Marcedes Caver pumped in a game-high 39 points as visiting Alfred State College defeated the women's basketball team, 71-50, Saturday afternoon at the Roos House.   The game was back-and-forth early as SUNY Canton (5-15) took its first lead of the contest 5:41 in when Alicia Uhlein (Watertown, NY) drained a three-pointer to make it 14-13 Roos. With the score knotted at 15 the Pioneers outscored the hosts 25-9 the final 13:11 of the half to take a commanding 40-24 lead into intermission.   Caver scored 22 points in the opening 20 minutes hitting 10 of her 15 shot attempts. Brianna Sayer (Hermon, NY) led the Roos with eight points, while Uhlein added seven.   Brianna Sayer had a team-high 15 points on Saturday. Alfred State (7-10) scored 16 of the first 18 points out of break to open up a 30 point lead after a Caver offensive rebound and putback with 14:40 to play. SUNY Canton trimmed the lead to 19 as the Pioneers cruised to the 71-50 victory.   Sayer scored a team-best 15 points on 4-for-6 shooting for the Roos. Joelle Percy (Black River, NY) added nine points, all of which came from beyond the arc. Karyss Terrance (Hogansburg, NY) added seven points and a team-high nine boards.   Caver led all players with 39 points to go with eight rebounds and five steals. Destiny Brito had eight assists, eight rebounds and six steals, while Briana Meehan and Jennifer Fedrick each tallied nine points.   The women's basketball team returns to the hardwood Wednesday for a 5:00 p.m. road game at Vermont Technical College.

Feb. 4: Joelle Percy (Black River, NY) drained a three off a pass from Alicia Uhlein (Watertown, NY) in the closing seconds of regulation but SUNY Canton fell, 58-45, to host Morrisville State in overtime.   Head Coach Bruce Tallon called time out with 17 seconds left to play as the Roos trailed 42-39. Coach Tallon drew up a play and Uhlein found Percy for her third three of the night to send the game into extra minutes.   Morrisville (5-13) scored the first 10 points of overtime and outscored SUNY Canton 16-3 overall in the extra session as the only Roo basket came off a trey from Percy.   The Roos (5-14) largest lead of the game came early on at 5-0 as they scored the game's first five points. In what was a back-and-forth first half it was the host Mustangs who took an 18-15 lead into intermission.   Morrisville led by as many as six points early in the second half but neither team led by more than three in the final 8:21 of regulation. The Mustangs biggest edge on the scoreboard came at 13 with 28 seconds left in OT.   Brianna Sayer (Hermon, NY) led the Roos with 17 points to go with six rebounds, while Percy added 16 points and eight boards. Karyss Terrance (Hogansburg, NY) netted nine points and a career and game-high 21 rebounds.   SUNY Canton held edges in rebounds (53-33), second chance points (15-2) and points in the paint (24-18). The Roos struggled taking care of the ball turning it over 29 times, compared to just 16 for Morrisville.   Jordan Anderson led all players with 21 points and seven assists for the Mustangs. Jennel Paul added 17 points as the only other Morrisville player to score more than five points.
