Game Summary

Saturday, November 18, we traveled to Syracuse to take on the Upstate Trojans for the first time ever. As expected, the lead went back and forth throughout the game without clearly indicating the outcome. We are consistent at providing an exciting nail-biter of a game, being decided within seconds of the final buzzer, except this game would be different.

The final buzzer revealed a tie game, sending us into overtime. When the final overtime buzzer sounded, the Trojans narrowly squeezed by with a 117-115 victory.

This year has not started the way we would have liked, leaving us with a 0-3 record, but there is one inescapable fact: the front windshield is always much bigger than the rearview mirror for a reason: it's time to focus all of our energies on Hoopin to Victory. This Saturday, December 2, we travel to Binghamton to square off with the Bulldogs.

As always, we thank you for your support, and our next home game will be December 30 at 3:00pm at the Nexus Center in Utica. Drive safe; the snow is here.
