Written By Editor on 1/22/17 | 1/22/17

Chambersburg, Pa.: Junior swingman Joel Costello, Middleburgh, N.Y., Middleburgh High School/Tompkins-Cortland Community College, scored in the paint with two seconds remaining in overtime to give the SUNY Cobleskill men’s basketball team an 82-81 victory over the host Phoenix of Wilson College on Saturday afternoon in North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) play. The victory extends the Fighting Tigers current winning streak to two games and improves their overall record to 2-11 including a 2-5 mark in league play while Wilson falls to 4-10 overall with a 4-6 record versus NEAC opponents.
After leading 38-27 at halftime; Cobleskill extended their lead to 20 points at 55-35 with 13:24 left in regulation on a three-point field goal by senior guard Quincey Miller, Brooklyn, N.Y., Lafayette High School/Potomac State College. From that point on, the Phoenix begin a comeback effort which saw them tie the contest with 29 seconds left to play when senior guard Marquis Nelson, Hagerstown, Md., Edison High School, scored off an offensive rebound.

Regulation was followed with an exciting overtime period which featured a pair of ties and five lead changes with Cobleskill coming out on top on Costello’s last second heroics.

Junior guard Malik Chambers led the winners in scoring with 26 points on the evening hitting on 6-of-12 three pointe opportunities including one in overtime which erased a 78-75 Wilson lead with 2:45 left to play.
Quincey Miller added 21 points and a season high of nine rebounds for the Orange & Black while Joel Costello finished with eight points, four rebounds and three steals in the win. Freshman Kahleel Taylor, Bronx, N.Y., St. Raymond’s High School, was also a major factor in the win coming off the bench to score six points and pass out four assists.

The Fighting Tigers will conclude their weekend NEAC road trip on Sunday afternoon when they travel to Washington, D.C. to face the Bison of Gallaudet University beginning at 2:00 p.m.
