The Oswego State men’s basketball team defeated Fredonia on Saturday in thrilling fashion by a score of 76-73. With the win, the Lakers move to 12-11 overall and 9-7 in conference play while the Blue Devils drop to 4-19. The victory marks the first time that Oswego has had a winning record since January 6th.
Oswego’s offense started out hot as they scored the first six points of the contest. From there, it would be back and forth with Fredonia taking a three point lead into halftime. While it seemed as though the Blue Devils would pull away at times, Jamir Ferebee and the Lakers would find answers. Ferebee played a crucial role in the final quarter, hitting three key free throws to put the Lakers up by one with just under four minutes remaining. He was also able to get the assist on Tyler Pierre’s game-winning basket with less than 10 seconds in the game.
Ian Schupp led the Lakers with 25 points and was joined by Ferebee (18), Pierre (13) and Josh Ivey (10) in scoring double digits.
Oswego will face Brockport at home next Friday with tip off scheduled for 7:30 pm.
