Furious Hudson Valley Comeback
Falls Short, Vikings Lose 89-85

Cobleskill, N.Y., November 29, 2001 – With less than a minute remaining in Hudson Valley Community College's road game against SUNY Cobleskill, the Vikings trailed by seven points. Jason McKinney (South Glens Falls H.S.) and Paul Bowe (Hudson Falls H.S.) put on a shooting display to give Cobleskill a scare in the final 52 seconds, though; after two 3-pointers by McKinney and a coast-to-coast layup by Bowe, a Bowe trey pulled Hudson Valley to within two points with just five seconds left. The Vikings, however, could get no closer. Cobleskill won, 89-85.

Hudson Valley is now 4-5 overall and Cobleskill is 6-2.

McKinney led all scorers with 19 points, and he also had seven rebounds. Additionally, he had four of Hudson Valley's 11 three-pointers. Bowe kicked in 14 points. Markael Brace (Albany H.S.) contributed 11 points, all in the first half. Paolo Walker (Columbia H.S.) had nine points, six rebounds, four assists and three steals.
