The College Park Skyhawks (6-3) clinched a hard-fought win against the Westchester Knicks (7-3) with a final score of 92-90 at the Gateway Center Arena in College Park, concluding their two-game series.


Notably, Hawks two-way guard/forward Seth Lundy achieved his first career double-double, contributing 19 points (5-11 FG, 4-9 3FG) and grabbing 10 rebounds. A stellar performance by Brandon Randolph off the bench added 17 points (7-15 FG) in just 27 minutes of play.


Randolph's standout second quarter, where he scored 13 points, propelled the Skyhawks to a 49-48 lead at halftime. The Skyhawks' solid defense in the second quarter limited the Knicks to 7-20 FG (.350 FG%) and 3-10 3FG (.300 3FG%), resulting in a 26-21 advantage for College Park.


The Skyhawks maintained their defensive dominance in the second half, holding the Knicks to 12-41 FG (.293 FG%) and 4-22 3FG (.182 3FG%). This historic feat marked the first time in team history that the Skyhawks restricted an opponent to less than .300 FG%/.200 3FG% in any half.

Keaton Wallace played a crucial role, scoring all 11 of his points in the second half, contributing to the team's sixth victory of the season. The Skyhawks' impressive defensive streak continued, holding their sixth consecutive opponent to fewer than 110 points, setting a franchise record.


Jacob Toppin led the Knicks with 18 points and 11 rebounds, securing a double-double, while former Atlanta Hawk Brandon Goodwin added 17 points.
