February SUNY-Sullivan basketball round-up

By Win Hadley

Scott Artis poured in 17 points and hauled down 11 rebounds to lead the Sullivan County Commu­nity College Generals to a 79-64 win over Kingsbor­ough Community College in Brooklyn on January 22. Romero Collier also scored 17 points for the Generals, while contributing 11 as­sists. Nasheed Dixon added 14 points and Nysir Wil­liams 11 for Sullivan, which raced out to an eleven point halftime lead. Twelve play­ers saw action in the game for the Generals, and nine of them played at least four­teen minutes.

It was the second straight win for Sullivan, coming on the heels of an 80-72 home court win over LaGuardia Community College the night before. The pair of victories followed an 88-83 loss to Ulster County Com­munity College at Stone Ridge on January 19.

On Thursday evening, January 26, the Generals travelled to Bronx Com­munity College, where they recorded a 75-63 road win, which left Sullivan with a 14-4 slate on the year, in­cluding 9-2 in conference play. Nassau County Com­munity College leads the conference standings with a 12-1 record, including a 74-61 triumph over the Gener­als on December 3.

Sullivan will have played three more games by the time this edition of The Sentinel hits the streets, most notably a January 28 rematch against conference leader Nassau in Loch Shel­drake, which promises to be quite a tussle.

Kyla Given had 20 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Lady Generals in a rout of Kingsborough Community College on Jan. 22.

Sullivan’s Lady Generals also played at Kingsbor­ough on January 22, holding the Wave women scoreless in the first quarter and to just five points for the entire first half en route to a convincing 91-23 win. Kyla Given had 20 points and 11 rebounds for the Lady Generals, while Amal Mahmoud contributed 16 and Jennifer Bronson 14.

On January 26, the Lady Generals took on Bronx Community College at Alumni gymnasium in the Bronx, coming away with a 79-54 win.

With the two victories, the Lady Generals improved to 15-1 on the year and 10-0 in conference play. They have won seven games in a row and remain in first place.
