January 31: Senior Matt Higgins tossed in 22 points on 8-for-12 shooting as the Clarkson University Men's Basketball team ended a six-game losing streak in conference with an 84-72 victory over Vassar College Friday evening at Alumni Gymnasium. The Golden Knights picked up a much-needed win to improve to 5-13 overall and 3-8 in the Liberty League. Vassar fell to 7-11 and 3-8 in conference games. Clarkson takes on Bard on Saturday afternoon, while Vassar heads to St. Lawrence. Friday marked Higgins' fifth 20-point game of the season. He also moved into sole possession of fifth-place in program history in 3-pointers made with 167, leaving him two short of a tie for fourth with Josh Ordway (1996-2000). Early on, junior Roburt Welch scored nine in less than six minutes, all on 3-pointers, to help the Knights get off to a quick start, but both offenses slowed near the midway point. Each team was getting to the rim and getting decent looks but not converting, but Vassar had the better of the chances and enjoyed a small 20-16 lead near the nine minute mark. The teams mostly traded baskets for the next few minute, but the Knights rattled off 13 straight points at the end of the half, only a last second mid-range jumper from Avni Mustafaj halting the Clarkson streak. Those 13 points in a little over three minutes allowed Clarkson to take an eight-point advantage into the locker room. Clarkson recorded 23 rebounds in the first half, two more than the team had in the first meeting against Vassar. Reese Swedberg was particularly busy with 11 boards in just 14 minutes of play. Matt Higgins scored 11 in the opening half and Barryn Shark found his teammates five times on assists. For Vassar, Mustafaj scored 11 points on 5-for-9 shooting in just 14 minutes. Each team was just one make below 50 percent shooting in the opening half. Back-to-back 3-pointers from Shark and Welch in the first few minutes of the second half allowed the Knights to expand their advantage to 16 (51-35), and the margin hovered around that level for the next 10 minutes. Eventually, Clarkson opened things up and gained a 21-point lead (73-52) after a Higgins 3-pointer from the corner had the Knights' bench cheering. However, those yells of encouragement turned as Vassar employed heavy pressure in the backcourt to cause turnovers and some ill-advised shots by the Knights. With 3:29 remaining, a free throw from Zach Bromfeld trimmed the gap to just 10 points (73-63). That was as close as things would get though and Shark hit a 3-pointer from the far corner with 85 seconds to go to push the lead back to 15, more than enough for the Knights to put things on cruise control for the remainder of the contest. Higgins closed with 22 points, leading four Clarkson players in double figures. Swedberg finished with 15 points and 13 rebounds, shooting 6-for-8 from the field. Welch ended up with 12 points and Hulbert added 11 points. For Vassar, Zach Bromfeld shot 7-for-11 from the floor and 5-for-5 from the free throw line for 20 points and Avni Mustafaj ended up with 16 points. Zach Johnson had 12 points and nine boards off the bench for the Brewers and Lance Tebay tossed in 11 points.

November 13: Six players finished in double figures, led by senior Liam Ellis's 25, but the Clarkson University Men's Basketball team could not overcome three players with 20-plus points for Plattsburgh State as the Golden Knights dropped their season opener to the 14th-ranked Cardinals 105-95 Tuesday night at Alumni Gymnasium. The Golden Knights fell to 0-1 on the season and will head to Massachusetts this weekend for a pair of games at the Westfield State Tournament. Clarkson was not shy from the 3-point arc, making 16 3-pointers on 40 attempts, 20 coming in each half. Six different players hit at least one 3-pointer in the game for the Knights. Both teams struggled at the start with turnovers but once the nerves were shook neither team seemed to have much trouble pouring in points. After a 3-pointer from Jason Phelps made it 11-9, the Cardinals went on a 12-4 run in the next 2:35, capped off by a dunk from Brandon Johnson. The Cardinals extended the lead to 13 points at the 7:51 mark, but the Knights found a groove on offense and rattled off 18 points in just six minutes, pulling the Green and Gold to within four (40-36) after back-to-back 3-pointers from Ellis and Phelps. The Cardinals responded with a 3-pointer and another fastbreak dunk for Johnson to close out the half (45-36). The nine-point margin expanded slightly at the start of the second half, but a Roburt Welch 3-pointer and a jumper from Chris Hulbert drew the Knights to within four (62-58) with 11:12 remaining. That would be as close as Clarkson would get, however, as Plattsburgh took advantage of Clarkson's early second-half foul trouble with plenty of free throw opportunities. Nick DeAngelis hit a 3-pointer at 6:51 and a pair of free throws from Ian Howard at 6:19 gave Plattsburgh an 18-point lead, an advantage the Cardinals would eventually extend to 20 just a minute later. However, there would be no blowout, as Clarkson kept on hitting shots and made its way back to a 14-point deficit with 2:30 to go. Ellis hit a layup at 1:24 to get the Knights to within eight (96-88). Though Clarkson's need to foul was effective in getting the Knights back to striking distance, the team's top two scorers from a year ago (Ellis and Matt Higgins) fouled out, allowing the Cardinals to settle for a 10-point win despite the late run. Ellis finished with 25 points, shooting 9-for-10 from the floor, and added six assists and six rebounds. Matthew Hornak tossed in 16 points and freshman Chris Hulbert came off the bench to score 17 points in 19 minutes.  Welch also contributed 12 points while Higgins and Phelps each scored 10. Reese Swedberg also grabbed nine boards for Clarkson. For Plattsburgh State, Johnson finished with 28 points and five assists while Jonathan Patron scored 27 points to go along with nine boards. DeAngelis came off the bench to score 23 points and Ian Howard added 10 rebounds and six points.

Senior captain Danny Delsol-Lowry(Queens, N.Y./Queens High School of Teaching) also had a big game with 19 points, connecting on four 3-pointers, all in the second half. He recorded his 1,000th career point during the contest. The Bears came out swinging, getting a basket plus the foul in transition from senior captain Aaron Armstrong (Lisbon, N.Y./Madrid-Waddington) on their first possession. Freshman center Tyrese Baptiste (Brooklyn, N.Y./Eagle Academy II) kept the momentum going with an offensive putback at 18:55 and Potsdam led 5-0. After trailing by 10 after a layup from Brown midway through the half, the Lakers responded with back-to-back 3-pointers from senior guard Brandan Gartland (Webster, N.Y./Webster Schroeder) to close within 23-19 at 9:45. The Bears had an answer as they proceeded to go on a 9-2 run, ignited by another three-point play from Armstrong. After the teams traded baskets, senior forward Joe Sullivan (Utica, N.Y./Notre Dame) closed the quarter for the Lakers with a putback. The Bears went back to the locker room with a 37-29 lead over the visitors. Delsol-Lowry began his second half outburst with his first three of the night to open the half. Sullivan quickly responded with a successful three-point play. At the 17:02 mark, Delsol-Lowry hit another shot behind the arc to put the Bears up 12, at 47-35. Back-to-back 3-pointers from sophomore guard Bo Sireika (Buffalo, N.Y./ST. Francis) kept Oswego in striking distance momentarily, before Delsol-Lowry hit two more threes. The second resulted in a four-point play at 14:20 to give the Bears a 56-45 lead. It ignited a 14-0 run to give Potsdam its biggest lead of the contest at 66-45 with 11:43 left. The Bears kept Oswego at arm's length for the remainder of the contest with their free-throw shooting and inside presence, sealing the 77-67 win. The Bears outrebounded the Lakers 46-39 and came away with 10 steals.  Senior captain Jayquan Thomas (Hollis, N.Y./Richmond Hill) scored 16 points with four thefts. Baptiste chipped in with eight points and nine boards. Gartland led the Lakers with 13 points and four rebounds, Sullivan added 12 points and five boards.  At 7-1, the Bears remain tied for first place in the SUNYAC with Oneonta.

November 13: The SUNY Potsdam men's basketball team (1-0) opened their season with a 90-77 win over St. Lawrence University (0-1) on Tuesday night. The Bears were firing on all cylinders shooting 51.7 percent from the field, and all five starters scored in double-digits. Senior guard Dante Langley (Schuylerville, N.Y./Schuylerville) finished with a game high 25 points and nine rebounds in the win.   The Bears got off to a hot start in the opening minutes of the season. Immediately after a 3-pointer by Langley, senior forward Serigne Kane (Brooklyn, N.Y./Brooklyn Prep) got a steal off a St. Lawrence inbound pass and slammed home a dunk in transition. On the Saints end, they were able to match the energy by the Bears with their composure and ball movement. A block by sophomore center Christopher Jeffrey (Norwich, N.Y./Norwich) followed by a 3- pointer by senior guard Dom DeRegis (Jamesville, N.Y./Jamesville-DeWitt) helped spark the 17-6 run by the visitors. Both teams created opportunities for themselves in the paint with their driving and transition baskets. The 14 points by senior guard Nosa Onabor (Brooklyn, N.Y./Northside Charter) and 56 percent shooting from behind-the-arc was key for Potsdam's 43-37 first half lead. The 17 points and six rebounds by grad guard Riley Naclerio (Cohoes, N.Y./Albany Academy) kept St. Lawrence afloat in the back and forth 20 minutes of play.   Potsdam carried on its aggressiveness in the painted area from the first half with five layups within the first four minutes. It allowed them to build lead to as much as 13 in the second half. The Saints countered their attack with a 3-pointer by freshman guard Luke Hicks (Clifton Park, N.Y./Shenedehowa) followed by a steal and fast-break layup by guard Jordan Huntley (Washington, D.C./Kimball Union Acad.). Then, a layup by Hicks cut the lead to just four. Langley put a stop to the momentum by attacking the paint and dunking the ball at the 8:39 mark and then hitting his third 3-pointer of the night to push the lead back up to eight. The visitors would cut it down to six with 1:37 seconds left, but the Bears defense and missed free-throws down the stretch halted the comeback effort for St. Lawrence, as the Bears closed out the 90-77 win.   Onabor left his mark on the game on both ends, scoring 16 points and finishing with four steals.   Hicks finished with 21 points and Naclerio had 18 points, nine rebounds, and two blocks for St. Lawrence.   The game was Potsdam's first victory over SLU since Dec. 4, 2012.   Next, the Bears are headed to Worcester, Mass. for a meeting with Worcester Polytechnic Institute on Friday at 5:30 p.m. in the first round of the Ted Coughlin Tournament.

Freshman guard Kanesha Strider (Long Island, N.Y./Longwood) hit a 3-pointer with 1:10 left, while Taylor beat the halftime buzzer with a trey of her own to hand the Golden Eagles a 32-17 cushion at the intermission.   Durnin and McCullough traded 3-pointers to start the third, and Brockport constructed a 15-point differential two more times before the Cardinals answered with a six-point run that included four points from sophomore guard/forward Kelly Degnan (Irvington, N.Y./Irvington). While the Golden Eagles brought the lead back out to 11, junior guard Theresa Quinn (Cromwell, Conn./Cromwell) drained a 3-pointer and Whitney made all three free throws on a three-shot foul to pull the Cardinals within 44-39. The two teams traded baskets before a free throw by Brockport's sophomore forward Allison Chiera with 12 seconds remaining in the quarter staked the visitors to a 50-44 margin.   After freshman forward Riqiya Harris cashed in on a layup for Brockport on the first possession of the fourth quarter, Degnan made a pair of free throws to whittle the deficit back to six. The Golden Eagles scored seven unanswered points to take a double-digit lead and led by as many as 17 points down the stretch.   Quinn and Durnin led the Cardinal offense with 17 and 13 points, respectively, while Degnan tallied nine points, five rebounds, three steals and two assists in 29 minutes coming off the bench. Senior forward Taylor Clare (Peekskill, N.Y./Peekskill) finished with six rebounds and two blocked shots to aid Plattsburgh State both on the boards and defensively.   For Brockport, Taylor led the way with 18 points, while Chiera posted a 12-point, 14-rebound double-double. Sophomore forward Kylee Rosbrook also reached double figures with 10 points.

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.

November 23: Junior Emma Buonanno was busy on the boards and on defense, coming within three steals of a triple-double, to help lead the Clarkson University Women's Basketball team to a 70-52 victory over Cazenovia College on Saturday afternoon at Alumni Gymnasium. The Golden Knights improved to 3-1 on the season and get just a single day off before facing SUNY Canton on the road Monday night. Cazenovia dropped to 2-5 on the year. Clarkson got off to a slow start, not scoring until more than four minutes had expired from the game clock, but once they were rolling, the team put forth a consistent offensive effort, scoring at least 16 points in each quarter. Cazenovia opened the game with a 3-0 lead, but the Knights would score 14 straight points, entirely on layups and mid-range jumpers. Clarkson held at least a five-point advantage for the remainder of the game, forcing the Wildcats into turnovers on the press and by jumping passing lanes in Cazenovia's half court offense. Buonanno produced eight points, six rebounds and five steals in the first half as Clarkson led by double digits at the break. Early in the second half the Knights doubled up Cazenovia, and by the end of the third quarter the Green and Gold had extended their advantage to as many as 23. The Wildcats chipped away in the fourth quarter, pulling to within 13 by mixing in drives to the basket around a trio of 3-pointers, but Clarkson enjoyed a large enough cushion to ride out that run and finished with an 18-point margin. The Golden Knights struggled from beyond the 3-point arc, shooting just 6-for-26 (23.1%), but made up for the deficiency by getting to loose balls with 16 offensive rebounds. Buonanno recorded six offensive rebounds, including three on one possession, to finish with a game-high 14 boards. She also added 12 points on 6-for-10 shooting and seven steals. Mariah Benavides led all scorers with 20 points and Molly Stewart tossed in 15 points to go along with six boards. Hannah Earl also added 12 points, six assists and three steals. For Cazenovia, Alexis Tubbs was 4-for-4 from beyond the 3-point arc and scored 16 points overall, a team-high, and added in seven rebounds. Amy Holland also scored 11 points for the Wildcats.

November 19: Burying four 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, the Clarkson University Women's Basketball team pulled away at a key moment and then held off a late charge by Potsdam, outlasting the Bears 78-70 in non-league action Tuesday evening at Alumni Gymnasium. The Golden Knights improved to 2-1 on the season and will face Cazenovia College at home on Saturday afternoon. Potsdam fell to 1-3 on the young season. After a tight first quarter, the Golden Knights picked up the pace in the early moments of the second quarter, extending their advantage to nine (28-19) after a jumper from Isabelle Sullivan. With 90 seconds left, Potsdam pulled within two (30-28), but on the next possession Claire Flannery buried a 3-pointer from the corner to make it a two-possession game once again. The third and fourth quarters mirrored the second as the game remained close, but Clarkson held on to its advantage throughout. The Knights pulled out to a nine-point lead, only to see it reduced to one at the 4:03 mark when Dyamon Hunter converted in the lane. Molly Stewart responded with a 3-pointer to push Clarkson back out to four, which was the margin through 30 minutes. Early in the fourth, Molly Stewart hit a 3-pointer and Rachel Marion buried another to give the Knights a 12-point advantage (62-50) and freshman Mariah Benavides knocked down a 3-pointer at the 5:54 mark to keep Clarkson up by 10. However, Potsdam chipped away down the stretch and pulled to within one on two occasions with less than three minutes to go, but that was as close as the Bears would get. The Knights would get key offensive rebounds down the stretch, and then converted on the second opportunities, none bigger than Molly Stewart's board off a miss, with Hannah Earl hitting a long-range shot shortly after to put the game away with 22 seconds to go. Senior Molly Stewart scored a game-high 20 points, shooting 7-for-16 from the floor with four 3-pointers, while adding seven rebounds and five assists in 36 minutes. Emma Buonanno played her normal hustling style and picked up 14 points with five boards and three steals while Hannah Earl tossed in 16 points. Lauren Bell came off the bench for eight points and 11 rebounds in just 17 minutes. For Potsdam, Dyamon Hunter scored a team-high 19 points on 9-for-14 shooting while both Devyn Elliott (15 points, 9 rebounds) and Jakia Howard (15 points, 7 rebounds) were just short of double-doubles. Caroline LaFountain also scored 17 points for the Bears.

January 14: Plattsburgh State (5-7, 2-3 SUNYAC) hit a buzzer beater in the first overtime to stay alive and held off the SUNY Potsdam women's basketball team (4-7, 1-4) in the second for an 80-75 win at Jerry Welsh Gymnasium on Tuesday night. Sophomore guard Deyvn Elliott (Bronx, N.Y./Cardinal Spellman) posted another double-double with 17 points and 17 boards.

The Bears never trailed in the first quarter and a 6-0 run make it 12-6 at 2:48. A Hunter layup at the close of the period gave the Bears a 16-11 advantage. Howard scored six points in the first 10 minutes and Hunter and freshman guard Tsai Lewis (Cortland, N.Y./Cortland) contributed four each. Plattsburgh answered with a 13-3 run to grab a 24-19 lead over the first 5:20 of the second quarter. Freshman guard Bella Barner (Liverpool, N.Y./Liverpool) hit a three during the streak and Elliott ended it with a jumper, but Cardinals freshman guard Mya Smith (Wappingers Falls, N.Y./Roy C. Ketchum) countered with a three for a 27-21 lead at the half. Two buckets to open the third gave Plattsburgh its biggest lead of the game at 31-21 and put Potsdam on the ropes. However, the Bears charged back with a 14-4 run to tie the game at 35 at the 5:07 mark. Elliott and LaFountain scored four each during the stretch and Hunter evened the score with a three. Hunter and LaFountain each gave the Bears a slim lead in a tight contest, but Cardinal senior forward Taylor Clare (Peekskill, N.Y./Peekskill) scored on a layup and Plattsburgh was up 41-40 after 30 minutes. LaFountain scored seven points in the quarter and Hunter had six. The final 10 minutes were a see-saw battle. LaFountain put the Bears back up 42-41 with jumper, but the Cardinals scored the next seven in a row. Sophomore guard Ly'rell Walker (Yonkers, N.Y./Roosevelt) made it 48-42 at 7:42 with a three-point play. A Hunter three and a Howard layup closed the gap to one point, but Clare and senior forward Taylor Durnin (Lyon Mountain, N.Y./Northern Adirondack) extended the lead back to 52-47 with 5:37 to play. Potsdam slowly chipped away at the lead and Elliott got the Bears within 58-57 with 21 seconds left. Cardinals junior guard Theresa Quinn (Cromwell, Conn./Cromwell) missed one of her two free throws five seconds later and Hunter tied the game at 59 with 11 seconds on the clock. Walker missed a layup at the five-second mark and the game headed to overtime. The first overtime was more back-and-forth scoring with three lead changes. LaFountain hit a three at 4:04 to give Potsdam a 64-62 lead. Quinn did the same 40 seconds later for a 67-64 Cardinals advantage. Elliott put the Bears back on top 68-67 at 1:31 with a three-point play. After Walker tied the game, Lewis scored to make it 70-68. Plattsburgh sophomore Kayla Doody (Troy, N.Y./Tamarac) sank two free throws to knot the score with 24 seconds left. The Bears then ran the clock down and Elliot hit a seemingly decisive jumper with just four seconds left. The Cardinals called a timeout and Durnin inbounded the ball to Clare, who tied the score with turn-around jumper at the buzzer. Plattsburgh scored the first five points of the second extra session and never trailed. LaFountain hit a three to get Potsdam within one possession a final time at 1:09, but Quinn sank two free throws with 11 seconds left to ice the win. Lewis finished with 11 points and eight rebounds for Potsdam. The Bears outrebounded the Cardinals 64-48 Quinn led Plattsburgh with 23 points and Clare scored 16 and grabbed 21 rebounds. Walker closed her night with 12 points and Durnin had seven. Potsdam heads to Western New York for two SUNYAC games this weekend.

Elliott had six points in the first 10 minutes.   The teams were dead even in the second quarter with 12 points apiece, but SLU opened the period with five straight points for a 23-17 lead at 9:02. Elliott and Howard answered with four and two points, respectively to tie the game with 4:46 left in the half. Another 5-0 burst from the Saints made it a 30-25 contest at 2:09, but a jumper from sophomore forward Alexis Davis (Brooklyn, N.Y./Williamsburg H.S. of Architecture & Design) and a layup from Elliott got the Bears within 30-29 at the half.   SLU heated up in the third quarter, outscoring the Bears 20-9. A 12-4 start to the quarter gave the Saints a 42-33 lead at 5:21.

November 23: SUNY Potsdam outscored the St. Lawrence University women's basketball team 28-11 in the fourth quarter to lift the Bears to a 66-61 win over the Saints during non-conference play on Saturday afternoon at Burkman Gymnasium. Olivia Middleton and Ava McCann led the Saints with 16 points each, while Katie Frederick grabbed a season-high 14 rebounds and added eight points. McCann shot 4-for-11 from the arc, grabbed three rebounds and one steal, while Erin Kumler assisted on four plays and Middleton recorded two steals. After an even first half of play, the Saints held a slight 30-29 lead at halftime. The Saints worked to build their lead through the third frame, going up by nine on a layup from Caroline Rodi with 5:21 to play and increased their lead to 12 points (50-38) on a last second 3-pointer from McCann to end the third quarter.

The Saints regained control on another shot from the arc by McCann to lead 61-56, but the Bears picked up the next five points to lead 63-61 with 46 seconds to play. The Bears added three free throws down the stretch for the win. "It was a tough loss today," said head coach Dan Roiger. "We had that game won and found a way to give it away in the fourth quarter. We broke down in a lot of areas in the final eight minutes. We lost our composure way before we lost the lead. We played panicky, took quick shots, turned the ball over and disappeared on defense. Our injuries have finally caught up to us.  We had a bad week of practice due to injuries and it haunted us in the fourth quarter today. We were tired, and it led to us making very poor decisions. We made so many of them, that we lost the game. Hopefully we can heal over break and get back to having a full squad soon." Jakia Howard shot 8-for-15 from the floor to lead the Bears with 17 points, and recorded 10 rebounds. Caroline LaFountain recorded 15 points, while Devyn Elliott added 14 and a team-best 16 rebounds.Dyamon Hunter recorded five assists for the Bears, while LaFountain tallied three steals.  The Bears shot 58.8 percent in the fourth quarter to improve their shooting to 39.4 percent overall, while the Saints shot 31.0 percent from the floor. Both teams moved to 2-3 on the season. The Saints will head home for Thanksgiving break and will open Liberty League play on the road at Rensselaer and Union on December 6 and 7, respectively. Game times are set for 5:30 p.m. on Friday and 2 p.m. on Saturday.
