LOCH SHELDRAKE – The SUNY Sullivan Generals are back on top as they defeated SUNY Orange for the NJCAA DII Region XV Championship, 83-66. SUNY Sullivan is sitting at 26-3, with one of those losses being handed to the Generals by the SUNY Orange Colts in November.
The Generals avenged their earlier loss in February with a 98-96 victory, but the two teams met again in the Region XV Championship. The Generals held a 34-25 lead at the half, and outscored the Colts 49-41 in the second half for the 17-point victory.
NJCAA Region XV Most Outstanding Player, Kareem Welch, led the way with 31 points, including five threes. Jay Alvarez added 20, netting three shots from beyond the arc.
Following the Region XV victory, the Generals headed to Niagara CCC to take on Monroe CCC.
An overwhelming 102-72 victory punched their ticket to the NJCAA DII National Tournament. After winning on Saturday to earn a trip to Illinois, they defeated Niagara CCC 87-76 on Sunday to improve their seeding.
When asked about this season’s success, coach Brent Wilson said, “Our depth has proven to be the biggest asset of the season. Coming off of a Covid-19 year and dealing with a lot of ups and downs, we stepped up when needed.”
