The New York men's and women's basketball teams split this weekend at Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.

The women got the day started and gave the defending champion Panthers a run for their money in the first half before a 10-2 run to end the half gave Albany a 34-24 lead going into the break. The Knights would fail to get it under 10 points the rest of the way before falling 76-60 to fall to 2-2 in Conference play and 11-8 on the season.

Junior guard Rachel Thomas (Murry Bergtraum/Brooklyn, NY) would lead all scorers with 18 points and would chip in 8 rebounds to lead the Knights.

The men's team would continue their late season surge with a 100-63 win over the Panthers in the second game to improve to 12-7 on the season and 4-0 in the Conference. They have now won three of their last four.

The Knights would lead a balanced attack with ten players scoring with four in double figures. Junior guard Kaseem Williams (Boys and Girls/Brooklyn, NY) would lead the Knights with 22 points and seven steals with sophomore guard Mario Guzman (West Oaks Academy/New York, NY) adding 18 points from the bench including 3 for 3 from three-point range. Overall the Knights would go 11 for 20 from the three-point range.
