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.

Panthers Repeat As MSAC Champions

TC3 men's basketball

For the second straight year, Tompkins Cortland Community College is the Mid-State Athletic Conference men’s basketball tournament champions. The Panthers, already the regular season champions, added the tournament crown Saturday with a thrilling 84-83 win over Finger Lakes Community College. The championship, the third time in the last five years that TC3 has cut down the nets as the conference tournament champs, gives TC3 a season record of 20-6. It also is the third time in five years the team has reached at least 20 victories in a season.

Less than 20 hours after shooting a sizzling 62.5% from the field in the first half while racing to a 79-48 rout of Corning in the MSAC semifinal game, Finger Lakes picked up where it left off on Friday. The Lakers opened Saturday’s championship game by connecting on its first five three-pointers while jumping to an 11 points lead just five minutes into the game. But unlike Friday’s blowout, the lead wouldn’t last. Devin Redden (St. Mary’s H.S./Buffalo) drained a three-pointer to start and 11-0 TC3 run that tied the game with 7:49 left in the half. After Finger Lakes cored to regain the lead, TC3 used an 11-2 run to take a 30-23 advantage with 3:53 left in the half. Finger Lakes cut the lead to 30-29, but TC3 again rallied, scoring seven of the final nine points of the half to take a 37-31 lead into halftime.

After seeing five lead changes in the first half, the second half produced four ties and seven more lead changes. The first lead change came less than two minutes into play after Finger Lakes scored the first nine points of the half to regain the lead at 40-37. The game of runs continued with TC3 scoring six straight to lead 43-40, and then Finger Lakes answering with nine straight to move ahead 49-43. Five in a row for the Panthers cut the deficit to one at 48-49 with 11:30 left on the clock, and moments later a steal and basket by Tyseem Lyles (Health Professions H.S./Brooklyn) gave the home team a 55-54 lead with 10:30 left, marking the last time TC3 would trail in the game. Baskets by Justin Hawkins (State Island) sparked a 9-2 run to give TC3 a 62-56 lead, but five straight from Finger Lakes brought it back to a one-point game. The Panthers managed to get the lead back to five points at 72-67 on three-pointer by Lyles with 4:18 left, but the Lakers weren’t done. The visitors scored seven of the next nine to tie the score at 74-74 with 1:34 left. Both teams made 1-of-2 from the foul line over the next 20 seconds to leave the score tied at 75-75 before Lyles drained a deep three-pointer to make it 78-75. After Finger Lakes answered with a basket to make it 78-77, Laszlo Hajnoczi (Hunter-Tannersville H.S./Tannersville) came up big with basket in the paint, drawing a foul and completing the three-point play to give TC3 an 81-77 lead with 48 ticks left on the clock. The final minute excitement was just getting started, as Finger Lakes answered with a three-pointer to make it 81-80 with 26.9 left. After a timeout, Finger Lakes fouled quickly on the next possession, sending Hawkins to the line with 20.2 second left. The sophomore made the first to make the score 82-80, but after missing the second, he came up with the play of the game, stealing the ball on the outlet pass to give TC3 the possession with a two point lead. After running a few precious seconds off the clock, Hawkins sealed the win with a basket, giving the Panthers the four point lead. A Finger Lakes three-pointer at the buzzer made the final a one-point game, 84-83.

Lyles earned tournament MVP honors, tallying 27 points and seven steals in the championship game. Hawkins had a monster game with 15 points and 16 rebounds, including a stunning 12 on the offensive glass. Robert Mills, Jr. (Newburgh Free Academy/Newburgh) had 12 points, including six points on a pair of key three-pointers. Redden and Hajnozi each scored 11 points, with Redden pulling down eight boards. Joel Costello (Middleburgh H.S./Middleburgh) dished out seven assists while grabbing six rebounds.

TC3 now awaits word on seeding for the upcoming NJCAA Region III tournament. Seedings will be announced Sunday, with the Panthers expected to open tournament play in the quarterfinal round Friday. The Region III tournament is being hosted by SUNY Delhi.
