Twins Drop Third Straight

The Twins have struggled of late and hoped to turn that around against the Jefferson Community College Cannoneers. This was the third road game in a row for the Twins. They have struggled, receiving losses in their last two games. The Cannoneers came into this game with just a 1-9 record. Their only win coming at Tompkins Cortland Community College.

This was the lowest scoring half for the Twins this season. The Twins have averaged 42 points a half this season but reach just 28 in the first half at the Cannoneers.

They would come out with a hunger to get this game back in reach in the second half. The Twins would eventually make it a one-point game, 42-41, early in the second half. However, this wouldn't last long as the Twins struggled to stop the Cannoneers offense. Jefferson Community College cruises through the Twins by a final score of 80-65.
