TC3 balancing act works
DRYDEN — A nifty little balancing act carried the Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s basketball team to victory on Wednesday night.
The Panthers had a half-dozen players score at least nine points in an 85-57 home court romp past Jefferson CC, improving to 3-5 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference and 7-11 overall in the process.
Rob Mills led the way with a 21-point performance, 15 of those coming when he swished five 3-pointers in the second half when the Panthers posted 50 points.
The first half was full of big runs.
Jefferson (2-5 MSAC, 3-16 overall) jumped out to an 11-3 lead before the Panthers scored 13 straight to lead 16-11. After eight straight for Jefferson, TC3 went on a 19-0 run to take a 35-19 lead late in the half. .
