Hawks Rally But Come Up Short in Torchia Classic Finals

Hawks Rally But Come Up Short in Torchia Classic Finals

The MVCC Men's Basketball team dropped a heartbreaker to Pasco-Hernando CC 71-67 in the finals of the Torchia Classic at MVCC on Saturday. 

The Hawks jumped out to an early lead and were up 13-11 before the Conquistadors went on a run to take a 43-30 halftime lead.  MVCC put forth a furious second half rally, getting within 2 points with 1:26 to play.  The Hawks had one more chance to tie the game, down three, with 3.6 seconds left but could not convert. 

Jordan Brown (Manhatten, NY) led MV with 23 points and sophomore Aaron Tennant (Rome, NY) dropped in 11 more. 

The Hawks return to action on Tuesday when they travel to Columbia Greene for a 6pm tipoff.
