Chukwu Okogeri (Queens/Bayside High School) had a game-high 24 points to pace Morrisville (1-5).

The Mustangs held an 80-75 advantage with three minutes remaining before Hudson Valley scored seven straight points to take an 82-80 lead with 1:12 left in the contest.

After Morrisville tied the game with a pair of free throws, Brace found Dickson on the baseline, who then took it in for the dunk and an 84-82 Hudson Valley lead with 36 seconds left.

Dickson then rejected the ensuing Morrisville shot attempt and followed up a missed free throw by Hudson Valley, with 11 seconds remaining, to give the Vikings an insurmountable 86-82 lead.

Hudson Valley returns to action tomorrow when it hosts Finger Lakes Community College at 2 p.m.
