The Mount's 6-game win streak came to an end at the hands of visiting Lafayette 76-72 on Friday night.
I was not able to watch the game or make it out to Knott Arena tonight, so the recap is pretty brief.
The Mount trailed by 22 early in the second half, but made a huge rally to close to one with 40 seconds left on Will Holland's three-pointer at 73-72. However, Adrian Brown who led all scorers with a career high 32 points, made his ninth three-pointer of the night to seal the outcome.
Chris Vann led the Mounties with 22, while Jeremy Goode chipped in 17, 7 assists and 3 steals.
The Mount started the season with four losses, so to get to the Christmas Holiday with a winning record is certainly a positive sign for this team. They are 6-5 overall, and 2-0 in the NEC. I think they have to be considered as contenders for the NEC title at this point. However, preseason pick Sacred Heart, Wagner, Robert Morris and even Long Island, whom the Mount dismantled earlier this month have been impressive as well.
The Mount returns to action next week at Oregon.
