New York men's basketball team records convincing 96-53 victory over Panthers in Albany

The Berkeley College of New York men’s basketball team (8-7 Overall, 4-1 HVIAC) won their third consecutive game, defeating the Panthers of Albany College of Pharmacy (4-8 Overall, 2-1 HVIAC) in a Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference contest by a score of 96-53 at the Albert M. White Gymnasium in Albany, NY.

The Knights had four players score in double figures on the afternoon, including senior guard Richard Rampersad who scored a game-high 22 points to go along with three rebounds, two assists, and two steals. He connected on seven of his 10 shots, and nailed four shots from beyond-the-arc. Sophomore guard Keenan Langston drained 11 of his 13 attempts from the charity stripe and scored 17 points while snatching three rebounds, and junior forward Shawn Collins and senior guard Jovan Bovell added 13 points apiece.

Berkeley College played a very efficient game on both sides of the floor. In addition to scoring 96 points (with 32 of those points coming via converted free throws), the Knights played a very strong defensive game, holding the Panthers to just 23.9 percent shooting for the afternoon (16-67). Berkeley forced 19 Albany College of Pharmacy turnovers while also recording seven steals.

Despite the loss for the Panthers, Albany College of Pharmacy was led by senior Casey Redfern who posted a double-double, as he scored 17 points (while hitting four three-point baskets) and snatched 14 rebounds. Sophomore Arden Koroglu added nine points off of the bench in just seven minutes of action.

The Knights will now enjoy five days off before returning to action on Saturday, as Berkeley will take to the road to battle Penn State DuBois. Game-time for that contest is scheduled for 7:00pm.
