The Hostos Caimans men’s basketball team defeated Borough of Manhattan Community College, 86-70, Wednesday night to advance to tonight’s CUNYAC Championship Game against Bronx Community College. The game will be played at Kingsborough Community College at 8:30 p.m.
Sophomore forward/guard Tyree White was named Modell's Player of the Game for his double-double performance (15 total points/13 rebounds). The Caimans are now 24-4 overall on the season and ranked No. 6 in the NJCAA Division III poll.
"It was a good team win," said Hostos men's basketball head coach Dr. Jody King of Wednesday’s game. "We got over our nerves after the first six or seven minutes, and then we played Hostos basketball."
Tonight the Caimans are looking to avenge their 62-59 loss to the Broncos suffered two years ago in the CUNYAC Finals.
The Hostos Athletic Department will be providing a fan van to help support the Caimans at Kingsborough tonight. You can stop by the Athletic Department to sign up for a seat on the fan van or email, Kcastro@hostos.cuny.edu.
