Women's College Basketball: SUNY Cobleskill Loses 77-70 to Olivet College at Hunter College Tip-off Tournament

Written By Editor on 11/19/17 | 11/19/17

New York, N.Y.:  The SUNY Cobleskill women’s basketball team took to the road on Friday afternoon to drop a 77-70 decision to the Comets of Olivet College from Olivet, Mich., in the opening round of the 2017 Hunter College Tip-off Tournament hosted by the Hawks at their own Hunter Sportsplex. With the defeat the Fighting Tigers fall to 0-2 overall on the season while the Comets open the year at 1-0.

In a game that was highlighted by extensive scoring runs by both teams the Fighting Tigers trailed 41-38 at halftime then stumbled out of the box in the third quarter to fall behind by 13 after the Comets score the first 10 points of the stanza at 51-38 with 6:56 to play in the frame.

However the Orange & Black roared back to close out the on a 23-to-5 run to take a 61-58 lead on the a three-pointer by sophomore guard Shaliyah Graham, Bronx, N.Y., Martin Luther King High School, with 38 seconds left in the quarter.

In the fourth quarter, once again, the Fighting Tigers came out slow as turnovers allowed the Comets to move out to a 65-61 lead which they expanded they built to eventually moved to 70-65.

But once again Cobleskill came roaring back as sophomore guard scored Addy Lawson, Cooperstown, N.Y., Milford High School, scored five points including a three-pointer to tie the contest at 70-70 with 2:16 remaining in regulation.

Regretfully that would be all the offense for the Fighting Tigers as a series of turnovers, defensive lapses and missed shots plagued them as Olivet scored the final seven points to ice the victory and move to the championship game on Saturday. 

Addy Lawson was once again spectacular in defeat for the Orange & Black with a team high of 23 points to go with nine rebounds, three assists and four steals while Shaliyah Graham returned to her hometown to score 13 points, take down five  rebounds and pass out three assists. The team also received a strong effort from sophomore forward Gabby Muraczewski, Hamilton Square, N.J. Sothern Regional High School, who hit for nine points while grabbing a career high of 13 rebounds.

Cobleskill will next play on Saturday morning in the tournament’s consolation round versus Baypath University at 11:00 a.m.
