Written By Editor on 2/5/18 | 2/5/18

Marcy, N.Y.: The SUNY Cobleskill men’s basketball team returned to the road on Wednesday evening dropping a 59-45 North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) decision to the Wildcats of SUNY Polytechnic Institute. With the loss the Fighting Tigers to 5-14 overall with a 2-9 mark in conference action while the Wildcats improve to 13-6 overall including a 9-1 mark versus NEAC opponents.

Both teams started the contest on the cold side offensive with Cobleskill moving out to a 16-15 lead with 6:32 remaining in the first half. However the host Wildcats outscored the visitors from that point 15-2 to take a 30-18 lead into the break.

In the second half the visitors could come no closer than eight points as an 18-for-56, 32.1%, shooting effort hindered their comeback attempts despite a stellar defensive effort which held the Wildcats to only 20-of-51, 39.2%, from the field including only 4-for-13, 30.8%, from three-point range.

Freshman Antwan Claxton, Bronx, N.Y., Taft High School, registered a team high of 11 rebounds to go with eight rebounds and two blocked shots while senior swingman Joel Costello, Middleburgh, N.Y., Middleburgh High School, had 10 points, six rebounds and four assists on the night. 

The Fighting Tigers will return to action on Saturday February 3rd when they host the Nittany Lions of Penn State Berks in conference play at the Iorio Gymnasium with tip-off at 1:00 p.m.
