Written By Editor on 11/20/16 | 11/20/16

After dropping their opening round game at the Hunter College Tip-off Tournament to the host Hawks, the SUNY Cobleskill women’s basketball team literally rebounded to post a decisive 80-60 victory over SUNY Purchase in the tournament’s consolation round on Saturday afternoon. The win improves the Fighting Tigers overall record to 2-1 on the season while the Panthers fall to 1-2 on the year.

Cobleskill dominated the backboard throughout the contest posting a 51-to-29 advantage on the glass while also posting one of their best overall shooting efforts in recent seasons going 29-for-55 from the field, 52.7%, including 8-for-18 from three-point range, 44.4%, and 14-of-20, 70.0%, from the free throw line.

Leading 32-26 at halftime the Fighting Tigers exploded in the third quarter to outscore the Panthers 26-to-12 during the stanza to lead 58-38 after three quarters and effectively put the game away as Purchase could come no closer than 15 points the rest of the contest.

Senior forward Shelby Preston, Ravena, N.Y., Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk High School, was named to the All-Tournament Team for the Orange & Black after posting her second consecutive double-double with game highs of 18 points and 11 rebounds while freshman guard Addy Lawson, Milford, N.Y., Milford High School, continued her strong early season play with 14 points, nine rebounds, six assists and a pair of steals in the victory.

Cobleskill also received strong efforts from freshman guard Erica Cabrera, Middletown, N.Y., Middletown High School, with 12 points, three rebounds and two assists and from senior swing-player Ashley Creighton, Niskayuna, N.Y., Central Catholic High School/Schenectady Community College, who notched 11 points to go with five rebounds and two assists.

The Fighting Tigers will next take to the court on Tuesday November 22nd when they host the Mountaineers of Southern Vermont College at the Iorio Gymnasium College at 7:00 p.m.
