An undermanned Alfred State College men's basketball team gave Genesee CC all they could handle on Tuesday night.  The eight Pioneers that dressed trailed by only five at half but could never gain the lead in the second half and fell 85-74.

Younatan Gobezai (Bethesda, MD) led the blue & gold with 21 points.  Nick Tucker (Genesee Valley) finished with 20 points and nine rebounds while Milton Colquehoun (Silver Springs, MD) chipped in 17.

ASC shot 9 for 17 from three-point land and was 22 for 25 from the foul line but was slowed down by 27 turnovers.

The Pioneers return to action on Thursday when they host Jamestown CC at 7:30 p.m.
