Men's Basketball Defeated by USciences on the Road

The Nyack men's basketball team dropped its CACC season game on the road to USciences on Saturday afternoon.

Robert Tyler sank 14 points against the Devils as he led his team Saturday afternoon in most points earned, but the Warriors fell to USciences, 72-57, to drop to 6-17 overall and 2-14 in the CACC.

The Warriors went into the game with the task of having to stop one of the CACC's top players in rebounds, Will Gregorits, who was averaging 9.0 rebounds per game and UScience's Jon McGill averaging 43.2% in 3 pointers.

The Warriors got off to a hot start, Jaron Smith made a 3 point jump shot which sparked a follow up layup from Rashard Lewis as well as Imran Ritchie. It was a battle to continue to stay hot on offense early in the half as UScience scored a quick twelve points in the first five minutes of the game.

Jaron Smith responded Warrior's offense outburst with five points of his own in the first half to bring the Warriors within fourteen points by the end of the first half. Nyack refused to end the half cold without scoring any points as Ga'Briel Chandler made a layup within the last second of the first half extending the first half margin to 23-37.

The Warriors opened up the second half with better defense, allowing just thirty five points in the second half but were unable to capitalize on the offensive end with only scoring thirty four points of their own. Robert Tyler found the net for the Warriors once again as he continued to provide instant offense with twelve points in the the second half. The Devils capitalized off the Warriors' turnovers that they converted in 19 points by the end of the second half.

The Devils shot 50.9 percent in the game overall with four players ending in double-figures, Da-Silva (12), Toure (13), Okolo (15), and McGill (16). The Warriors shot 47.7% in the game overall with two players ending in double-figures, Witherspoon (12) and Tyler (14).
