Pioneers Rally Falls Short

The Alfred State men's basketball team trailed 44-34 at half and by as many 14 in the 2nd half but were able to claw back into the game to cut it to 77-75 in the final two minutes but were unable to get any closer as Genesee CC earned a 83-78 victory.  The Cougars are now 14-9 (6-2 WNYAC) while the Pioneers are 6-15 (1-7 WNYAC).
