Men's College Basketball: SUNY Cobleskill Falls to Morrisville State 80-75 in Overtime

Written By Editor on 12/11/16 | 12/11/16

Once again the SUNY Cobleskill men’s basketball team could not turn exceptional effort into a victory as the Fighting Tigers were hard luck losers to visiting Morrisville State College by an 80-75 margin in overtime in North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) action at the Iorio Gymnasium on Wednesday evening. With the loss the Fighting Tigers drop to 0-9 overall on the year including a 0-4 mark versus league opponents while the Mustangs improve to 5-2 overall including a 3-0 record in NEAC play.

After racing out to a 41-36 halftime advantage on the strength of a some exceptional three-point shooting at 8-of-14 ,57.1%, the Fighting Tigers found themselves trailing by 10 points at 65-54 in the second half with 7:51 remaining in regulation.

From that point on the home team rallied over the next 4:54 to outscore the Mustangs 14-to-3 to tie the contest with 2:57 remaining in regulation on a pair of free throws by senior guard Quincy Miller Brooklyn, N.Y., Lafayette High School/Potomac State College, at 68-68. Which is the score that the game ended in regulation after a last second Fighting Tiger defensive stand generated a Mustang turnover at the buzzer to send the game into overtime. 

After the teams traded the lead twice in the extra stanza, the Fighting Tigers grabbed a 75-72 on a three-point play by senior swingman Joel Costello, Middleburgh, N.Y., Middleburgh High School/Tompkins-Cortland Community College, with just 2:01 left to play.

However over the last 2:01 the Mustangs held the Orange & Black scoreless scoring the contest’s final eight points to secure the 80-75 victory.

Quincy Miller turned in an exception effort in defeat for the home team with 17 points, four rebounds and four assists while junior swingman Frank D’Esti, Vestal, N.Y., Vestal High School/Broome Community College, hit for 15 points to go with six rebounds and four assists. Sophomore guard Malik Chambers, West Point, N.Y., James I O’Neil High School, scored 15 points on the night, all in the first half, and sophomore center Shaquill Anthony, Far Rockaway, N.Y., Far Rockaway High School, came off the bench to contribute career highs in points with eight and rebounds with nine in a reserve role.
