DOBBS FERRY, NY (December 4, 2013)
The Nyack College men's basketball team traveled across the Tappan Zee Bridge to face East Coast Conference opponents from Mercy College.
The Mavs looked to split the season series after their first loss to Nyack last month however with the Warriors having a 34-26 advantage at the locker rooom break, the momentum continued to overflow in the 2nd half and in the end, Nyack successfully record their third win on the year.
The final score reflected 76-64 as Mercy drops to 0-6 on the year.
Juniors Chris Hampton (Queens, NY) led for the Warriors with 16 points, 7 rebounds, 3 steals and a block while senior Isaiah Roberts (Pennsauken, NJ) and junior Nick Moore (Sicklerville, NJ) contributed with 13 points each. Freshman Jalen Harris (Brandywine, MD) from off the bench recorded 10 points, three rebounds, and 3 assists.
Junior Khalid Samuels (Mt. Vernon, NY) ended the night with a game high 6 assist while chipping in with 9 points respectively while Moore grabbed a game high 8 rebounds in the winning effort.
Lead scorers for the Mavericks were Chaz Morrish with 16 points, Dan Pierrot with 13 points, and Nate Stitchell with 10 points.
Coach Crafton on the Warriors: "This was a great road victory for us. We came in short-handed and our guys showed great toughness for most of the game especially on the defensive end. We do need to clean up the turnovers moving forward."
Men's basketball (3-4) return back to Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference play Saturday, December 7th as they host the University of the Sciences at Bowman Gymnasium.
First tip is set for a 3pm start.
