two big wins over the past week, the SUNY Erie men’s basketball program edged
their early-season record over .500, surging to 4-3 with victories over
conference and non-conference opponents.
November 29, the Kats traveled south to Pennsylvania to snare a double-overtime
win over conference foe Mercyhurst North East, 105-103. Brooklyn, New York
native Shevon Anisca led the way with a monster 40-point, 10-rebound night. On
December 2, Anisca and Co. came back to Buffalo and took their second straight,
soaring past Lakeland Community College, 90-76. Both teams would get into foul
trouble, but the Kats would capitalize on their chances. South Park High grad
Shakur Harris would lead the Kats in points with 22—13 from the free throw line
on perfect 13-for-13 shooting—and 10 boards. Kyle Harris (Park School) would
add 21 points, while Anisca chipped in with 15 points and 10 rebounds.
women’s hoops action, SUNY Erie’s squad fell on the road to Mercyhurst North
East, 78-76, on November 29. McKinley High grad Shamecca Minor would lead the
team with 27 points, while Aaron Shabazz (Cardinal O'Hara) added 20 points in
the loss. Three days later, the Kats returned home to the friendly confines of
City Campus’s Burt Flickinger Center, but fell to Lakeland Community College,
81-57. Trailing for most of the game, the Kats would close the gap late in the
second half, but could not pull into the lead. Once again, the team was led by
Minor with 14 points, with Miracle Douglas (Lockport High School) adding 10 and
fellow Lockport grad Jael Chandler controlling the glass with 12 rebounds.
basketball teams will travel to Rochester’s Monroe Community College on
December 6, with the women at 5:30 p.m. and the men at 7:30 p.m.
