“Hustle and heart set us apart. Winners don’t wait for chances, they take them.”
On January 31, our men’s and women’s basketball teams competed against opponents and came out victorious! Our men's team played Johnson State College at home, and our women's team played John Jay College away in New York City. Our men's team won with a final score of 70-56 and our women's team won 64-48.
On the men's side, after losing three tough games in a row, they managed to get back on track with a conference home game win against Johnson. Both teams are competing for a playoff spot position in the NAC basketball tournament.
