Schenectady Christian certainly had trouble hitting its shots against Cambridge, especially in the second half. Fortunately for the Falcons, they had forward Chris McCarty patrolling the paint and pulling down rebounds.
"We kept some balls alive, and that gave us some more (scoring) opportunities," said Bowman. "Chris McCarty did a great job on the boards."
The majority of the scoring fell on the shoulders of Schenectady Christian's guards. Steve Brundage hit a pair of three-pointers on his way to a team-high 19 points, while Ian Compton drained three shots from behind the arc as part of a 15-point night. Collins added 13 points.
"It's going to take some time (to adjust to being a scorer) because I haven't been a regular shooter," said Collins.
"This is a little different team for us in that we'll have to gut things out more than in the past," said Bowman.
The Schenectady Christian boys team gets right back in its new gym Friday when it hosts Canajoharie in its first Western Athletic Conference game of the season.
"We'll certainly have to fix things, or else we're going to have a bumpy (league) season," said Bowman.""
