Another Dramatic Win for TC3 Men's Basketball

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

A driving layup by Rob Mills (Newburgh Free Academy/Newburgh) with 8.6 seconds left on the clock gave the Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s basketball team a 79-77 home win over SUNY Delhi Wednesday. After opening the season with three losses to Division II teams, TC3 has now won three straight against fellow Region III, Division III teams. The loss drops Delhi to 2-5 overall and 2-3 in region.

The first half was a game of big runs. Delhi scored the first ten points, but TC3 answered with 12-1 run to take a 12-11 lead on a dunk by Isaiah Ward (Palisade Preparatory/Yonkers). A Delhi 8-2 run was followed by a TC3 streak of nine straight, capped by a three-pointer from Ward to give the home team the 23-19 lead. Delhi came back with six straight, but the Panthers rallied with seven straight en route to a 36-31 lead at the half.

In the second half, TC3 came out fast, pushing the lead to 12 points at 47-35 just three minutes in. Over the next ten minutes, Delhi slowly cut the lead, finally tying the score at 62-62 with 7:15 left on the clock. The teams traded baskets to make it 64-64 before back-to-back threes from Mills and Ward pushed the Panthers back up by six. The lead held until Delhi rallied to tie the score at 77-77 with 27 seconds left.

After a pair of time outs with 22.2 seconds left, TC3 got the ball to Mills, who worked his way through the defense, driving to the basket for the go-ahead layup with 8.6 seconds left. Seconds later, Mills sealed the win with a steal, making the final 79-77.

Both Kevin Williams (Benjamin Banneker/Brooklyn) and Nicc Johnson (St. Mary’s H.S./Buffalo) had huge double-doubles. Williams had 19 points and 16 rebounds and Johnson posted 19 points and 15 boards. The two combined for 17 offensive rebounds, helping TC3 to a 23-9 advantage in offensive boards and a 19-3 advantage in second chance points.

Ward had 15 points and Joshua Spence (Bayard Rustin H.S./Brooklyn) had 10. Mills finished with eight points and a team-best five assists.

TC3 hits the road this weekend, playing North Country Community College Friday and Clinton Community College Saturday.

Highlights–2012-13 Men's Basketball

Season Ends with Upset Loss

Friday, March 01, 2013

The Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s basketball season came to a disappointing end Friday with a NJCAA Region III quarterfinal loss. The #3-seed Panthers lost to #6 Hudson Valley Community College by a final of 60-51. TC3, which entered the game on a ten-game winning streak, ends the season with a record of 21-5.

The Panthers took a 34-26 lead into the half, thanks to a 9-0 run over the final four minutes. Tyseem Lyles (Health Professions H.S./Brooklyn) scored five of his 11 first-half during the run, while Devin Redden (St. Mary’s H.S./Buffalo) put in the final four points of the half, heading to the locker room with nine. The second half opened with TC3 scoring the first four points to push the lead to 12, and the advantage remained 12 points at 40-28 with 16:26 left on the clock when thing started to go bad for the higher seed.

Hudson Valley went on a 19-2 run to take the lead at 49-42 with 6:40 left, the ninth lead change of the game. TC3 answered with a 7-2 run to tie the game at 49-49 on a three-pointer by Jaanai Beckford (Northstar Christian Academy/Yonkers) with 2:36 left. The two teams traded foul shots over the next 38 seconds to tie the game at 51-51, setting the stage for a dramatic finish.

On the next possession, Hudson Valley missed a shot that Redden grabbed for the rebound, but when he was knocked to the floor, he was called for travelling, giving the ball back to Hudson Valley. This time the Vikings didn’t miss, hitting a three-pointer with 50.8 second left to take the lead at 54-51. After a TC3 miss, the Panthers were forced to foul, and Hudson Valley went 6-for-6 over the final 27 seconds to seal the win.

In the end, the Panthers were done in by a second half that saw them make just 18.5% from the floor, including only 1 of 12 from three-point range. While TC3 was going cold, Hudson Valley was heating up, making 54.5% from three-point range over the final 20 minutes. For the game, Hudson Valley also enjoyed a solid advantage at the free throw line, making 14-of-16 while TC3 managed to connect on just 7-of-15.

Lyles led TC3 with 15 points while adding four rebounds, three assists, and two steals. Redden had 13 points, two assists, and two steals, and Beckford finished with 12 points, nine rebounds, two assists, and a steal.
