Written By Editor on 1/29/17 | 1/29/17

The SUNY Cobleskill men’s basketball team could not overcome a slow start and ended up on the losing end of a 75-62 score versus the visiting Wildcats of Penn College in North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) play on Sunday afternoon at the Iorio Gymnasium. The loss drops the Fighting Tigers to 2-15 overall on the campaign including a 2-9 mark in conference games while the Wildcats improve to 7-12 overall with a 5-9 record in NEAC action.

The Wildcats came out on fire offensively using long range shooting to jump out to an early 14-2 advantage which eventually led to a 39-24 lead at the half. The visors eventually pushed their lead to 19 points at 57-38 with 9:01 left in regulation before Cobleskill went on a 20-to-7 run highlighted by 15 points from senior swingman Joel Costello, Middleburgh, N.Y., Middleburgh High School/Tompkins-Cortland Community College, which cut the deficit to six points at 64-58 with 2:27 left to play. However down the stretch the visitors from Williamstown, Pa. outscored the Fighting Tigers 8-to-4 to put the game out of reach as secure the victory.

Joel Costello posted personal single game career highs in: points with 30, rebounds with 13, and steals with six to go with two assists and two blocked shots to key the comeback connecting on 10-of-20 field goal attempts including 3-of-5 from three point range along with a perfect 7-for-7 at the free throw line on the afternoon.

Senior guard Malik Chambers, West Point, N.Y., James I. O’Neil High School, was also a factor in the game for the home team with 17 points and four rebounds.

Cobleskill will next be in action on Wednesday February 1st when the team travels to Cazenovia, N.Y. to face NEAC rival Cazenovia College in conference action beginning at 7:00 p.m.
