After earning a first-round bye in the Region III Division II Men’s Basketball tournament, the second-seeded Cougars traveled to Erie Community College on Saturday afternoon to take on a hot Mercyhurst North East team that upset Niagara County Community College on Tuesday night to advance to Saturday’s semi-finals.

Genesee jumped out to an early lead after a Kenton Chan-Man (Brooklyn, NY) three-pointer and two Kevin Nascimento (New York, NY) free-throws gave the Cougars a 7-2 advantage about four minutes in. Mercyhurst then made a 10-2 run to take the lead, but no team held a lead larger than five points during the first half. In total, there were nine lead changes in the opening twenty minutes, and the Saints held a 39-38 advantage at the break.

Mercyhurst took control of the game at the start of the second half. The Saints scored the first five points of the second twenty minutes before Deylon Bovell (Brooklyn, NY) hit his second three-pointer of the afternoon to draw GCC back within three. With a 44-41 lead, Mercyhurst then scored 16 of the next 20 points and opened up a 15 point, 60-45 lead with 14 minutes to play. The Saints held their largest lead at 16 when they led 66-50 with just over 12 minutes to go. Genesee made a push and cut the lead to single digits at 82-73 with four minutes to play, but the Saints capitalized at the free-throw line and held off the higher seed, winning 99-82.

The Genesee Community College men’s basketball team controlled their own destiny on Saturday afternoon when they traveled to Niagara County Community College. A win and the Cougars would earn the second seed and a first-round bye in the Western New York Athletic Conference Tournament and a free pass into the semi-finals. A loss and the Cougars would host a play in game on Tuesday night for the right to move on to next weekend‘s final four. Not wanting to have to play the extra game, Genesee defeated NCCC for the second time this season, beating the Thunderwolves 80-70.

The Cougars trailed only once in the game when NCCC jumped out to a 3-0 advantage on their first possession. Mike Glenn (Fairport, NY) and Kenton Chan-Man (Brooklyn, NY) quickly erased that deficit with back-to-back three pointers to give Genesee the lead. Genesee held Niagara in single-digit scoring for more than the first eight minutes of the game and opened up a 21-9 lead. Donte Meredith (Bronx, NY) came off the bench to score eight first half points to help the Cougars to a 40-25 advantage at half time. Tyshawn Ferguson (Chicago, IL) cancelled out a number of NCCC scoring chances by taking four first half charges.

Glenn extended the Genesee lead to start the second half by scoring the Cougars first five points before having to leave the game due to injury. GCC held their largest lead at 20 points when they led 55-35 with twelve minutes to play. Niagara made a mid-half run to cut the lead to ten before Kevin Nascimento (New York, NY) and Meredith hit back-to-back three’s to extend the lead once again. The Thunderwolves did score the game’s final seven points, but ran out of time and could not mount a comeback.

Meredith finished with a game high and career high 18 points, Ferguson recorded a 14-point 14-rebound double-double, Chan-Man netted 14 points, Nascimento added 12 points and six rebounds, Glenn scored 11 points before leaving the game and Deylon Bovell (Brooklyn, NY) chipped in with ten points.

The Cougars finish the regular season with an 18-11 overall record and a 10-4 record in conference play. The win gives GCC a first round bye and a pass until Saturday, when they will play the winner of Niagara County Community College and Mercyhurst North East. That game will be played on Tuesday night at Niagara County Community College.

It took a comeback on “Sophomore Night” for the Genesee Community College men’s basketball team, but the Cougars earned a conference win in their final regular season home game of the season against Alfred State College on Tuesday night, 85-82.

Mike Glenn (Fairport, NY) got the Cougars off to a fast start by scoring 16 of the team’s first 18 points of the game. Despite the hot start from Glenn, the Cougars struggled, only shooting 29% from the floor in the opening twenty minutes. The Pioneers took advantage of GCC’s poor shooting and six first half three-pointers of their own to grab a 13-point, 43-30 lead at the half.

Alfred State held their largest lead at 15 points early in the second half before the Cougars made their comeback. Genesee made a 12-4 run in a four-minute span to trim the Pioneer lead to one at 56-55 with just over nine minutes left to play. After an Alfred State basket, Tyshawn Ferguson (Chicago, IL) and Kenton Chan-Man (Brooklyn, NY) each capitalized on three-point plays to give the Cougars the lead back at 61-58. Chan-Man went on a stretch where he scored nine straight points to extend the GCC lead to nine, and went 4-4 at the free-throw line down the stretch to help the Cougars hold off the visitors.

Riding a two-game losing streak, the Genesee Community College men’s basketball team needed a win against Jamestown Community College on Saturday afternoon to keep their hopes for a top seed in the Western New York Athletic Conference playoffs alive. The Cougars got that win, downing the Jayhawks, a team that defeated them by three earlier in the season, 68-59.

Genesee fell behind early thanks to four-of-six shooting from three-point range for Jamestown. A Kevin Nascimento (New York, NY) layup tied the game at 20 with four minutes to go in the first half before Mike Glenn (Fairport, NY) scored the final seven points in the opening twenty minutes to send GCC into the locker room with a 30-25 lead.

Glenn finished a 10-0 run of his own by hitting his first three-point shot attempt to start the second half to give the Cougars a 33-25 lead. Genesee did not trail in the second half but saw their lead drop to as low as six, when Jamestown made it a 55-49 game with 2:30 remaining, before Tyshawn Ferguson (Chicago, IL) completed a three-point play to stretch the lead back to nine. GCC finished the game off at the free-throw line and snap their short two-game losing streak, beating the Jayhawks to even the season series at one win apiece.

Five Cougars finished the afternoon scoring in double figures, led by Kenton Chan-Man (Brooklyn, NY) and Glenn who each finished with 18 points. Ferguson ended with 12 points and Deylon Bovell (Brooklyn, NY) and Nascimento each finished with 10 points.

The Genesee Community College men's basketball team hoped to avenge a February 2nd loss to Monroe Community College on Tuesday night, going on the road to face their Western New York Athletic Conference rival.

The Cougars began the night by not allowing Monroe a basket for the first five minutes of the game. Genesee only managed four points during that time and when Monroe finally did score, it was the beginning of a 12-0 run that gave the Tribunes a 12-4 lead with eleven minutes left to play in the first half. Trailing by eight with about five minutes left, Mike Glenn (Fairport, NY) drew Genesee back within two at 20-18, scoring back-to-back three pointers. The Cougars kept pace and Kenton Chan-Man (Brooklyn, NY) sent the game into halftime all tied at 26 with a last second layup.

After an even start to the second half, the Tribunes scored on back-to-back three point possessions and the Cougars trailed 49-43 with eleven minutes remaining in the game. GCC did not go away and Glenn was able to tie the game at 49 with a dunk that even brought the MCC crowd to their feet, and then gave Genesee a 52-49 lead after converting on an old fashion three-point play. Monroe then went on a 10-0 run in a span of two minutes that gave the Tribunes a 59-52 lead with just over six minutes to play. The Cougars went two more minutes without scoring a basket before a Tyshawn Ferguson (Chicago, IL) layup ended a nearly four minute drought. Genesee did fight back and trailed 66-64 with 18 seconds left to play. Sending Monroe to the free-throw line, the Cougars missed an opportunity when the Tribunes missed both free throws. Unable to grab the rebound, GCC had to send Monroe back to the free-throw line where they were able to close out the game. The Tribunes sweep the season series with GCC, winning Tuesday night 70-66.

Glenn finished with a game high 27 points. Chan-Man was the only other Cougar in double-figures, finishing the night with 12 points. Dijon Wright (Philadelphia, PA) had a strong night down low, grabbing 14 rebounds.

Genesee falls to 15-11 on the season and 7-4 in conference play. They will host Jamestown Community College on Saturday at 3pm.
