Men’s Basketball Earns Region III Play-off Berth

The men’s basketball team earned the #8 seed in the 2013-14 NJCAA Region III men’s basketball tournament this past season. The Spartans defeated Onondaga CC in the sub-regional round #8-#9 matchup in a thrilling 85-78 overtime win at Spartan Hall. All-Region forward Zaki Thomas (Paterson, NJ) led all scorers with 25 points. Sophomore guard Glenn Taggart (Fairport, NY) added 19 points. Freshman Michael Guity (Syracuse, NY) came off the bench to chip in with 18 points.

The Spartans moved on to the Elite 8 and faced host #1 SUNY Delhi…who they had defeated earlier in the season. The Spartans looked poised to pull off the upset leading much of the first half and only trailing at halftime by 2 points. Sophomore center Joe Goddette (New Rochelle, NY) led the way with 13 points. Glenn Taggart and DeVaughan John added 12 and 10 points, respectively, for the Spartans. The Broncos outscored the Spartans by 16 in the second half to distance themselves and advance 73-55.
