(Rochester, NY) A nationally ranked showdown took place Saturday afternoon on the campus of Monroe Community College as the #7 Tribunes hosted the #20 Mercyhurst North East Saints.
A matchup that had five lead changes within the first 8 minutes of play looked to be a very promising game for both teams. The Saints held a 14-9 advantage with 13:41 left behind 9 points from Monroe Community College transfer Justin Vaughan.
The Saints lead began to dwindle away as the hot shooting Tribunes took a 52-31 lead into halftime after shooting 50% from the field in the first half.
Mercyhurst struggled from the field to begin the 2nd half which led to the Tribunes increasing their lead and eventually taking a 114-75 win over the Saints.
Justin Vaughan led the Saints with 22 points.
The Saints are back in action when they host Genesee Community College Saturday, February 6th for a 3PM tip.
