ALBANY, NY – Locked in a war of attrition with the deep, strong Patroons, the Rogues just ran out of soldiers. With Bryant Givens tending to a family emergency, and Isaiah Hill joining Tyrone Young, Brandon Johnson and Ron Artest III on the injured list, the Rogues re-signed Kenya Brown in order to dress seven players for the second game of their Eastern Conference matchup. The Rogues fought tooth and nail for three and a half quarters, before the Patroons went on a 28-3 run to close out the game.
Marquise Collins had another strong game for Newfoundland, scoring a season-high 34 points to go with 11 rebounds. Chaney chipped in with 23 and 14 assists. The tired legs were clearly seen as the team shot 8 for 36 from the 3-point line for 22.2%. On the season, they averaged 14 3-pointers made and over 40%. From the free throw line, the team shot an abysmal 57%. Jacorie Archie was in foul trouble most of the game, eventually fouling out in the 4th quarter.
Albany on the other hand, played a well-rounded game that included 6 players in double figures. They were led by Edward Dyson III’s 37 points, while Shadell Millinghaus recorded a triple-double with 33 points, 10 assists and 11 rebounds.
The score was 107 – 105 with just over 6 minutes left in the fourth quarter, before Albany went on their game-ending 28-3 run. The Rogues shot 1 for 16 in that span.
