The Davis College Falcons took to the road for a pair of Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (HVIAC) games over the weekend, losing to the College of New Rochelle (CNR) Angels 85-92 on Friday night and then winning at the Culinary Institute of America Steels on Saturday by a score of 61-42.

The Falcons were looking to avenge a 26 point home loss when they faced CNR last season and showed they were ready to compete for 40 minutes in this one. Both teams battled with intensity as neither could separate themselves in the first half. Davis would take a 49-46 lead into intermission and then came out executing at a very high level in the beginning of the second half. A 13-5 spurt by the Falcons grew their lead to 62-51 with 16:36 remaining but the Angels slowly battled back by getting to the foul line. CNR would shoot an astonishing 40 free throw attempts for the game, connecting on 26 of them. The Falcons still had a chance down the stretch as a made layup by the Falcons Jackson Henri (Miami, FL) with 1:54 remaining cut a CNR lead to 1 by a score of 83-84 but CNR was able to convert on a couple of plays and the Falcons did not.

Titus Geday (Toronto, Canada) had a career game for the Falcons as the senior connected on all 9 of his field goal attempts en route to a 18 point effort. Corban Usry (Statesville, NC) added 14 points, Henri 10 points and 9 rebounds, and Duke Guo (Tang Shin Hebai, China) game off the bench to score 15 points.

The next morning the Falcons had an 11:00 a.m. tip-off at the Culinary Institute of America. Both teams came out a little flat before Henri took over for a stretch as he put in 10 points and gathered 7 rebounds in the first half. The Falcons went in to the half leading 36-16 and cruised to the win in the second half. 12 different players made it into the scoring column for the Falcons and were led by Henri’s 12 points.

The Falcons (11-5 overall, 1-1 HVIAC) will host Jefferson Community College on Thursday at 6:00 p.m. in a non-conference game. The two teams played back on November 20 with Davis winning 93-88.
