The Genesee Community College men's basketball team extended its winning streak to four games with a 101-67 road win over Mercyhurst North East Dec. 13. It was the third-consecutive time the team reached triple digits, while the win improved Genesee's Western New York Athletic Conference record to 4-1. Over the Cougars current four-game win streak, Genesee has averaged 104 points.
Genesee scored the game's first basket for their first lead and never trailed. After building a 14-point first-half lead at 44-30, the Cougars opened the second half with a 10-run before out-scoring the Saints by 20 in the second half.
Three Cougars accounted for 75 points with each having 20-point-plus performances. Rahmel Thompson led the team in scoring with 27 points, but Jaheem Page and current National Junior College Athletic Association Region III Player of the Week Brian Fobbs both registered double-doubles. The latter pair each scored 24 points with Page leading the team in rebounds with 15 and Fobbs not far behind with 13 boards.
The Cougars travel to Sanborn to participate in the Niagara County Community College Thunderwolves tournament this weekend to close out play this semester.
