continued “We know who their three-point shooters are,” said Platek. “We got out on them and shut them down.”
“I thought we did a good job of getting through (CBA's) screens,” said Osinski. “Andrew Platek does a very good job of it.”
Without any scoring from behind the three-point arc in the second half, CBA turned to its big men to keep it in the game. Forward Greig Stire scored 10 of the Brothers' 19 points after halftime and guard Daniel Owens added six points, but it was not enough.
“I thought we stood around and watched a lot,” said Doemel. “It's something that has hurt us all season.”
Stire finished with a game-high 22 points, and Owens added 10 points for CBA. Platek had 14 points, while Marc DuMoulin and Matt Cerutti each chipped in with eight points for Guilderland.
