Warriors Defeat Brooklyn College
In previous years the Brooklyn College Bulldogs have dominated the Vaughn Warriors. On Wednesday, at the West Quad Center, the Warriors, led by freshman guard Michael Pena, were able to erase a huge second half deficit and defeat Brooklyn College in overtime 97-94. This was the first time that Vaughn defeated Brooklyn College and was the Warriors first win against a CUNY school opponent.
Many players contributed to the win. Pena had a game and career high 31 points; senior forward Jeffrey Noel, who played for the Bulldogs last year, recorded his first double-double of the season scoring 21 points and 10 rebounds; and senior captain guard Jared Ndiba scored a season high 18 points and eight rebounds.
The Warriors, now 5-1, will play Friday, December 6 at York College at 8 p.m.
