Knights men’s basketball falls to Post

TimesLedger Newspapers

The Queens College men’s basketball team was unable to pick up its first win of the 2012-13 season against the Post University Eagles, losing the contest Saturday afternoon by the score of 83-67.

The game started with the Knights going on a quick 5-0 run, before ending the first half down just 13 at 43-30.

Post University started the second half outscoring the Knights 5-1, to make it 48-31, and the Knights answered with a 9-0 run with just four minutes gone by in the half to cut the lead to eight at 48-40. In that 9-0 run, junior Patrick Parker-Knights — the team leader with 27 total points in the game — netted a three-point basket, laid it in twice and made a jumper.

Later in the half, Patrick Modzelewski landed a three-pointer to put the Knights within just five against the Eagles 56-51 halfway through the half. That was as close as the Knights would get as they and Post swapped buckets the rest of the way, leading to a Post win as the clock wound down to zero and the Knights dropped their fifth game of the season.

The Knights will next play Saturday, Dec. 1, on the road against Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y., at 3 p.m.
