The Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s basketball team opened the game on an 18-2 run and never looked back, cruising to a 92-62 win over Clinton Community College Saturday. The Panthers improve to 3-3 overall and 3-2 in Region III games while Clinton drops to 1-5 overall and 0-5 in region.

After the game-opening spurt the Panthers added a 16-4 run later in the half to take a commanding 47-19 lead into the break. The lead grew to a high of 37 in the second half before settling in on the final spread of 30 points.

Bakary Magas (Harlem/Heritage H.S.) had a huge day, posting double-double in the first half before finishing the game with 20 points and 12 rebounds.

Highlights–2017-18 Men's Basketball

Panthers Cruise to 30-Point Win

Saturday, November 18, 2017

Tompkins Cortland Community College

The Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s basketball team opened the game on an 18-2 run and never looked back, cruising to a 92-62 win over Clinton Community College Saturday. The Panthers improve to 3-3 overall and 3-2 in Region III games while Clinton drops to 1-5 overall and 0-5 in region.

After the game-opening spurt the Panthers added a 16-4 run later in the half to take a commanding 47-19 lead into the break. The lead grew to a high of 37 in the second half before settling in on the final spread of 30 points.

Bakary Magas (Harlem/Heritage H.S.) had a huge day, posting double-double in the first half before finishing the game with 20 points and 12 rebounds. Tahleek Weekes (South Queens/Construction H.S.) finished with 15 points to go with 8 rebounds and 5 assists and Mario Antenor (Lauderdale Lakes, Fla./Coconut Creek H.S.) tossed in 15 points.

The Panthers now get a 10-day break from games for the Thanksgiving holiday. The team returns to the court Tuesday, November 28 for the Mid-State Athletic Conference opener at Jefferson Community College.


Panthers Lose Thriller at Home

Friday, November 17, 2017

Tompkins Cortland Community College

Playing one of the highest-scoring teams in the country, the Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s basketball team led most of the way but couldn’t hold on as the North Country Community College Saints rallied for a 93-91 win. The loss drops the Panthers to 2-3 overall and 2-2 in Region III games. North Country is 7-1 overall and 5-1 in region.

North Country came into the game averaging more than 107 points per game, the second most in the nation. The Panthers held the Saints to just 40 points in the first half, taking a 50-40 lead into the break. In the second half, the lead changed hands nine times, including five times in the final two minutes. The ten-point halftime grew to a spread of 14 points before the Saints used a 17-2 run to take the lead for the first time at 76-75. The teams traded the lead over the next four baskets before the second tied score had the game at 85-85.

A basket by Dqui Berry (Jamaica H.S./Grover Cleveland) put the Panthers up, but a three-pointer from the Saints put the visitors up 89-88. A layup by Mario Antenor (Lauderdale Lakes, Fla./Coconut Creek H.S.) was answered with a bucket by the Saints before Antenor hit his second basket of the closing minutes to give the Panthers the lead at 91-90 with 26.7 seconds left. Needing a stop, the Panthers couldn’t slow down the Saints as a three-pointer gave the lead back to North Country at 93-91. A missed shot for the Panthers was followed by a foul with 1.8 second left, and even though the Saints missed both free throws, the desperation heave at the buzzer came up well short.

Tahleek Weekes (South Queens/Construction H.S.) finished with a team-high 23 points along with 5 rebounds and 3 assists before fouling out late in the second half. Bakary Magas (Harlem/Heritage H.S.) had a double-double of 22 points and 14 rebounds while Antenor finished with 15 points off the bench. Berry added 14 points, 4 boards, and 3 assists.

The Panthers look to get back on track Saturday with a 4 p.m. game against Clinton Community College.


Panthers Can't Keep Up With #7-Herkimer

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Playing on the road at the #7-ranked team in the nation, the Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s basketball team didn’t have enough answers, losing 92-64 to Herkimer College. The loss drops the Panthers’ record to 2-2 overall and 2-1 in Region III games. Herkimer is 5-0 overall and in region.

The Panthers struggled to put the ball in the basket in the first half, scoring just 15 points through the first 20 minutes. Trailing 43-15 at the break, Tompkins Cortland came out with a strong second half, but it wasn’t enough to make a close game. Both the Panthers and Generals scored 49 points in the second half, making the final a 92-64 win for Herkimer.

The Panthers come back home Friday to take on North Country Community College at 7 p.m.


Panthers Hold On for 60-56 Win

Tuesday, November 07, 2017

Tompkins Cortland Community College

The Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s basketball team improved to 2-1 on the season with a hard-fought 60-56 win over Schenectady County Community College on Tuesday. The Panthers’ second straight win drops Schenectady to 0-3 on the year.

Schenectady opened the game’s scoring, but the Panthers responded with six straight to take the lead. Schenectady rallied back to tie the score again, but Tompkins Cortland went on a run that left the home team with a 28-13 lead with about five minute left in the half. A cold spell to close out the half cut the lead down to ten at 30-20.

The Panthers weren’t able to put Schenectady away until the closing seconds of the second half. Early in the period the Royals pulled with five at 38-33, but could get no closer until a mini-run made it a four-point game at 51-47 with under six minute left to play. After the teams traded baskets, a three-pointer from Bakary Magas (Harlem/Heritage H.S.) gave the Panthers some breathing room at 56-49 with 3:50 left to play. A little more than two minutes later Mario Antenor (Lauderdale Lakes, Fla./Coconut Creek H.S.) scored a layup to make it 60-52 with 1:36 left. It was the last points the Panthers would score, but the defense held on by limiting the Royals to just one basket from the floor the rest of the way.

Jonathan Baker (Staten Island/Curtis H.S.) finished the night with a game-high 17 points. Magas and Antenor each had 13 points, with Magas grabbing 7 rebounds. Tahleek Weekes (South Queens/Construction H.S.) led the team in rebounds and steals with 9 and 3, respectively.

The Panthers have a week off before playing again. Next up is a game at Herkimer College on Tuesday, November 14.


Panthers Score Final 11 Points in 83-70 win

Sunday, November 05, 2017

The Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s basketball team closed out its first win of the season in style Sunday, scoring the last 11 points of the game in an 83-70 win over Fulton-Montgomery Community College. The Panthers are now 1-1 on the season, while Fulton-Montgomery is 0-1.

The Panthers and Raiders traded the lead seven times, and the score was tied five times. The last lead change came with 4:08 left in the game, when Dqui Berry (Jamaica/Grover Cleveland H.S.) stole the ball, sparking a break that ended with a Mario Antenor (Lauderdale Lakes, Fla./Coconut Creek H.S.) layup and a 69-67 lead. A possession later, another steal, this one by Jaisym Smith (Roosevelt/Roosevelt H.S.) lead to points, with Jonathan Baker (Staten Island/Curtis H.S.) draining a three-pointer to make the score 72-67 with 2:57 left. The Raiders came back with a three-pointer to make it 72-70 with 2:16 left, but it was as close as the visitors would get. The final 11 of the game came from the Panthers, as Tahleek Weekes (South Queens/Construction H.S.), Antenor, and Baker combined to go 9-of-10 from the free throw line over the final two minutes to seal the win.

Five Panthers finished the game scoring in double digits, led by 19 points from Weekes. The sophomore scored 16 in the second half, and finished the game one rebound shy of a double-double.

Antenor also had 12 points, and Bakary Magas (Harlem/Heritage H.S.) finished with 11.

The Panthers are home again Tuesday, hosting Schenectady County Community College at 5 p.m.


Second-Half Rally Not Enough in Loss

Thursday, November 02, 2017

A 51-point second half wasn’t enough for the Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s basketball team Tuesday as the Panthers dropped the season-opener to Jamestown Community College 91-82.

The scoring bonanza after halftime wasn’t enough to make up for a hole the Panthers were in after Jamestown shot better than 50% from the floor in the first half. After Tompkins Cortland took a very early lead, the Jayhawks stormed back, using a 7-0 run to spark a half that saw the home team outscore the Panthers 44-31. Jamestown answered Tompkins Cortland in the second half, keeping the spread in double figures until the final minute.

Four Panthers scored in double figures. Tahleek Weekes (South Queens/Construction H.S.) had a big game in his Panthers debut, scoring 27 points and grabbing four rebounds. Mario Antenor (Lauderdale Lakes, Fla./Coconut Creek H.S.) poured in 18 points, Bakary Magas (Harlem/Heritage H.S.) had 13 points and seven rebounds, and Jonathan Baker (Staten Island/Curtis H.S.) had 11 points and five boards.

After running with the Division II Jayhawks, the Panthers will now open Division III play with a home game against Fulton-Montgomery Community College Sunday at 3 p.m.
