The men's basketball team dropped their MSAC opener on the road in double-overtime at Finger Lakes CC, 94-88 on Thursday night. Broome started out sluggish as the Lakers jumped to a 7-0 lead, but they wouldn't let the lead grow any larger than 9. It was 12-3 after five minutes of play, and then it was 23-14 with just under seven minutes to go. Over the next five minutes the Hornets went on a 20-7 run to take the lead 34-30, and finish the half up 38-37. The first half run was ignited by hot shooting from Brady Harrington, who shot 5-7 from the field for 11 points, and Anthony McNeil who was aggressive getting to the rim, and shot 5-8 FT, finishing with 9 points.
The next twenty minutes was a back and forth battle, with no team leading by more than 4 points. It took the Hornets some big stops and big shots down the stretch and they made both to tie the game at 69 at the end of regulation. The first OT was more of the same, with both teams scoring 13 points to end tied again, this time at 82. The second OT belonged to the Lakers, outscoring the Hornets 12-6 to finish the game.
