Lackawanna Closes in on Playoff Berth with Win

At West Windsor, New Jersey, Vincent Roux and Antoine Hackman each scored 16 to lead Lackawanna College to a 78-59 victory over Mercer County Community College. Although both Roux and Hackman led the team in scoring with the same total points, each did so in distinctly different ways. Roux scored a majority of his points from beyond the three-point line (12) while Hackman made his points from the free-throw line (7) and in the paint (8)

In addition to Roux and Hackman, Javon white and DeAndre Albritton also contributed significantly to the victory. White narrowly missed a double-double as he scored 8 points and snatched 10 rebounds. Albritton scored 9 and dished out 5 assists.

The Falcons need two more victories to clinch a playoff berth. They hope to get one of those wins Sunday when they play Del Tech Stanton at Newark Delaware. Game time for that contest is 3:00 PM.

Del Tech enters the game with a win loss record of 3-17 overall and 2-8 in Region XXIX play. It will be the first contest between Lackawanna and Del Tech this season. They play again next Thursday when the Spirit visits Lackawanna.
