Cougars Quick Start Leads to Victory Over JCC

The Genesee Community College men's basketball team started its game against Jamestown Community College with an 11-1 run and never looked back in a 99-92 win at Jamestown.

The Cougars coasted the rest of the way after its hot start having never trailed and maintained almost a 10-point lead throughout the contest even into the final minute of play.

Brian Fobbs and Jaheem Page accounted for nearly half of the team's points with the former netting a team-high 26 and the latter 22.

The pair recorded double-double performances with Fobbs adding a team-high 15 boards and Page 10. The Cougar starting five was just one-point shy of having all of its five starters with double-digit points.

Rahmel Thompson finished third in scoring with 18 and Brandon Peters added a team-high five assists.

Cougars Put Impressive Fourth Quarter Together at Jamestown

The Genesee Community College women's basketball team may have dropped its contest to Jamestown, but if the team can start its next contest the way it finished against the Jayhawks they would be a hard team to beat.

The Cougars finished the game with an 11-2 run in a 26-point fourth quarter and although the last quarter was exceptional it was the first quarter that decided the game and allowed Jamestown to win 82-64. Aside from the first quarter, the rest of the game was a two-possession one with Genesee playing the Jayhawks even in the second half at 38 points each.

Rosalyn Sealey led the offensive fourth-quarter surge with 11 of her team-high 18 points. The team's lone sophomore finished the contest shooting 50 percent from the field and 80 percent from the free-throw line and added a team-high four assists.

Two other Cougars had double-digit point performances with Titilopemi Olusola adding 12 points and Reika Murota with 11. The latter converted three threes to account for most of her point production, while the former had a team-high four blocks.

Estella Anderson recorded eight rebounds and Chevaneese Millington registered five steals.
