Staten Island Goes Back-to-Back; Knocks Off Lehman in CUNYAC Final, 77-75 - Feb 25, 2018

For the second time in five years, the third-seeded College of Staten Island men's basketball team captured back-to-back titles, upon defeating No. 1 seed Lehman College, 77-75, in the 2018 CUNYAC/Army ROTC Men's Basketball Championship on Friday at CCNY's Nat Holman Gymnasium.
"This is what CSI is about. We are family," said Staten Island first-year head coach T.J. Tibbs . "We have grown and matured. These guys really wanted a championship. It was a hard-fought game and we were fortunate to get a victory."
"Get some rest. Get healthy. Enjoy and live in the moment. We will find out who we play Monday and get right to practice," added Tibbs about his team continuing their postseason run in the NCAA Tournament.
Tied 12-12 nearly seven minutes into the first half, Staten Island went on a 13-4 run in a four-minute stint to take a 25-16 lead at the 9:02 mark. Senior guard Raymond Savage (5'10''-PG) ignited the spurt with a three. Sophomore guards Adeola Latunji (6'3''-G) and Christian Taylor (6'1''-G) followed with baskets. Senior guard/forward Edin Bracic (6'3''-G/F) capped it off with a pair of free throws.
Though the Lightning subsequently cut the deficit to a two-point game, the Dolphins went into the break ahead by double digits (39-28), after a Latunji three-pointer just before time expired.
CSI shot a solid 41.2 percent (14-of-34) from the field and 38.5 percent (5-of-13) from three-point land in the opening 20 minutes of play.
In the second half, Staten Island led by as many as 12 points on four separate occasions, the last of which coming at 67-55 with 7:33 left.
However, Lehman put together a furious comeback, posting a 14-2 response in a stretch of 3:47 to tie the score at 69-all at the 3:46 mark. Senior guard Luis Hernandez went off for the Lightning in the burst, scoring seven points. Senior forward Jean Marcial (6'3''-F) had the game-tying bucket, a fast-break lay-up off his own steal.
Yet, Taylor nailed a three-pointer on the ensuing possession to put the Dolphins back in front at 72-69 with 3:19 remaining.
From there, it took free throws decide this one. Latunji netted four consecutive free throws to make it a 76-72 game with 13 seconds to go.
Lehman had an opportunity though to even things up again in the final seconds.
After being fouled on a drive to the basket, Hernandez went to the stripe with a chance to send the contest into overtime. He made the first, but missed the second, sealing the Lightning's fate. Lehman ended up shooting 14-of-29 (48.3 percent) from the foul line in the game.
Four players scored in double figures for CSI in the victory. Latunji poured in a team-high 21 points and grabbed nine rebounds. Junior guard/forward Robert Rossiter (6'3''-G/F) had 16 points in 25 minutes off the bench. Taylor notched a double-double (14 points, 10 rebounds), en route to being named the tournament's Most Valuable Player.
"Every day in practice, we go over stuff like this. We felt like we were really prepared and confident," commented Taylor about his team's ability to stay composed in the final minutes. "At the beginning of the year, no one believed in us. We were ranked fifth at the start of the year. Now, we are on top."
Bracic contributed 10 points and one steal. Junior guard/forward Stephen Flagg (6'2''-G/F) totaled seven points, 13 rebounds and four assists.
For Lehman, Hernandez scored a game-high 29 points and pulled down 10 boards for a double-double. Senior guard Andrew Utate (6'2''-G) amassed 24 points on 8-of-15 shooting and crashed the glass for seven rebounds. Senior guard Mylo Mitchell (6'0''-PG) racked up 10 points, five rebounds and two assists. Marcial earned seven points and five rebounds.
