MARCY, N.Y. - The SUNY Poly men's basketball team broke two scoring records in a blowout win on Senior Day against Penn State Berks 123-90. The two records broken were three pointers in a single game by a player, and points in a single game by a team.
Prior to Saturday, the highest single game score record was held by the 1989 Wildcats. The record stood at 122 points for 28 years before the 2016-17 Wildcats bested that score by one point scoring a whopping 123 points.
The game itself was never in doubt for the Wildcats who jumped out to an insurmountable lead early in the game led by fantastic play by the Wildcats three seniors.
Quayshaun Mitchell (Harlem, N.Y.) had a day to remember. The senior set a new record in his final regular season game for the Wildcats by draining nine three pointers in just 26 minutes. Mitchell was incredibly efficient, shooting 63 percent from the field. He ended the game with a career high 34 points, six rebounds, five assists, three steals, and a block.
Terrynce Wilson (Bronx, N.Y.) had himself quite the game as well. The senior threw down three monster dunks in the game en route to scoring 20 points for the second time in as many days. Wilson shot 75 percent from the field, went 2-3 from three-point land, had five assists, five rebounds, two seals, and a block.
Rounding out the senior contribution was Joseph Ojo (Staten Island, N.Y.) who had 13 points, a team high seven assists, four rebounds, and a steal. He shot 55 percent from the field and went 1-2 from beyond the arc.
For Berks, Baba Waples had a game high 39 points, shooting 36 percent. He also had 10 rebounds, four assists, and two steals. Darren Major had 23 points, four rebounds, two steals, and an assist.
The Wildcats finish their regular season with a record of 19-6. The team will host a NEAC Quarterfinal game on Tuesday night against Cazenovia College. The game is set to tip-off at 7:00 PM in SUNY Poly's Campus Center Gym.
