LOCH SHELDRAKE November 20, 2007 In the first game of Saturday afternoon’s season-opening doubleheader homestand for the basketball teams of Sullivan County Community College (SCCC) the visiting Broome Community College (BCC) Lady Hornets defeated the SCCC Lady Generals, 65-39, at Paul Gerry Fieldhouse.
BCC took a commanding 40-18 lead at halftime and went on to post a 26-point win.
So far this season, SCCC is 1-4 and while the BCC is undefeated with a 6-0 record.
Three Lady Hornets scored in double figures to lead the team to victory. Aimee Kellicutt scored a team-high 16 points, Brittany Finkle added 15 points and Alyssa Polosky had 12 points.
The only Lady General to reach double digits was sophomore guard LaShaun Malcolm, who scored a game-high 21 points.
Both teams shot very well from the free-throw line. SCCC made 4-of-5(80 percent) foul shots and BCC made 7-of-10 (70 percent).
“Both teams played hard, but we got a couple of baskets in transition early on,” BCC Coach Mike Huggler said. “I’m a little disappointed that we couldn’t keep Sullivan off the boards a little bit more. They were very aggressive going after the boards, and we let No. 24 [Malcolm] get some open looks.”
Huggler praised the performance of a couple of his players.
“Lindsay Osman kept us going defensively and Aimee Kellicutt had a good game at the top of the zone,” he said.
SCCC Coach Paul Clune had a another commitment immediately following the game, so SCCC Assistant Coach Steve Nash offered a few words about the game.
“We played a good game against a very good team,” Nash said.
