The King's College freshman Jonathan Stevens scored 25 points, but it was not enough as Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences prevailed 80-74 on Sunday afternoon in a Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (HVIAC) match up.
Despite the offense firepower provided by Stevens, sophomore Trivette Knowles (15 points) and senior James Brooks (12 points), TKC trailed 42-34 at halftime. The Lions came out strong in the second half with senior Caleb Trouwburst grabbing 7 rebounds and freshman Joseph Burkart chipping in with 9 points. Freshman duo Matt Soltis (6 points) and Nathan Rizzuti (4 points) provided some valuable minutes off the bench, but the Panthers still outscored the Lions 40-38 in the second half.
The loss dropped TKC to 0-3 overall and 0-1 in HVIAC conference play. Albany Pharmacy improved to 1-1 overall and 1-1 in the conference.
NEXT UP: TKC will travel out to Long Island Wednesday night to take on Webb Institute in another HVIAC contest.
