Late Three-Point Play Lifts MCLA Men

MCLA Sports Information
TROY, N.Y. -- MCLA senior guard Noah Yearsley converted a conventional three-point play with 11 seconds remaining to help rally the Trailblazer men's basketball team past Russell Sage, 66-65, Tuesday in non-conference play.
Yearsley's play completed the comeback for MCLA as they trailed by nine points with five minutes remaining.
With 5:14 left to play Sage (5-2 overall) took a 61-52 advantage after Stuart Phair made a pair of FT's.  From that point, it was all MCLA. After a couple of empty possessions on both sides, MCLA's Hayden Bird continued his hot shooting from deep as he buried a three pointer to start the comeback.
Sage answered with a bucket from Tyler Mitchell to increase the margin back to 63-55, but MCLA would outscore the Gators 11-2 over the final three minutes. Yearsley began the spurt with two FT's and then after a steal from Reece Racette, Yearsley's layup cut it to 63-59 with under two minutes to play.
