Sunday saw the Cougars play the ASA Institute of Brooklyn, NY and came up with the same result as Saturday as Genesee lost to the Avengers by the score of 68-48. Keenen Ellis was a major factor in the game as the big man had a height advantage of a good four inches on the tallest Cougar, which is Leon Nelson who is 6'7''. With the win, ASA is now perfect with a record of 9-0 while the Cougars fall to 5-3.
On the flip side, the Women's Basketball team successfully won both of their contests to win the Cougar Holiday Classic. They defeated ASA 92-70 behind 22 points from Ka'Mela Bender. Marcades Caver had 21 points with Krystie Laurey scoring 20 to lead the Cougars. Bender and Laurey were named to the All Tournament Team for their performance over the weekend. Saturday saw Genesee defeat CCRI 65-45. The Lady Cougars record is now 7-3.
