Brockport 83, O-State 70
Oneonta State sophomore Zach Mager scored a college-best 40 points Saturday, but the Red Dragons dropped a SUNYAC game at home.
Mager is the fourth O-State player to score 40 or more points in one game and the first since Daryl Parsons had 40 against Juniata on Nov. 21, 1997. Mager shot 12-for-17 from the floor and 12-for-14 at the foul line. He also grabbed a team-high nine rebounds.
The Red Dragons (1-7, 0-4) will play St. Edwards University of Texas on Tuesday and Ottawa University of Kansas on Wednesday during the Hoop-n-Surf Classic in Hawaii.
Keuka 82, Cobleskill 69
Mike Marcelin scored 20 points Saturday, but host SUNY Cobleskill dropped its North Eastern Athletic Conference opener in overtime.
Dane Brown contributed 18 points and Alexis Nunez had 12 points and nine assists off the bench for the Fighting Tigers (2-8), who were outscored, 16-3, in the extra period.
Cobleskill is off until Jan. 5, when it visits Penn State Abington.
Broncos extend streak
Delhi won back-to-back games this past weekend to extend its home winning streak to 27 in a row.
The Broncos beat Jefferson, 61-41, on Sunday after escaping with a 60-58 win over North Country on Saturday. North Country guard Ian Henderson missed a three-pointer at the buzzer.
“It was pretty fortunate for us he missed because he was wide open,” Delhi coach Rob Schoener said. “It was just a mix up on a screen play. Everybody in the gym took a deep breath when he put up the shot because it looked good, but it hit the front iron and rimmed out.”
Freshman Sean Scott had 18 points and 12 rebounds for Delhi, which received 18 points from Shakeel Simmons.
On Sunday, Scott had 18 points, six rebounds and six steals and Stefan Bock contributed 14 points for Delhi, which last lost a home game in December of 2010.
“Our team takes a lot of pride in defending home court,” Schoener said.
Delhi (12-1) had been ranked No. 2 in the NJCAA Division III rankings, but a 55-33 loss at Herkimer on Thursday likely will drop them in this week’s rankings. The Broncos play at Sullivan Community College on Tuesday.
