Gorillas Men Lose Second Straight

Updated:

TAHLEQUAH, Okla. -- The Pitt State men's basketball team (10-7) suffered a tough non-conference road loss, 71-60, to Northeastern State (4-14) on Wednesday (January 18) evening in Tahlequah, Okla.

JaVon McGee led the team with 13 points, Marky Nolen added 12 and Andra Bailey scored 11 to lead the Gorillas. McGee also had six rebounds, while Bailey had four.

Northeastern State's John Schneider led all players with 17 points.

Despite not making its first shot from the floor until almost three-and-a-half minutes into the game, the Gorillas played tough defense to take an 11-7 lead with 11:34 left in the first half. The team held the Riverhawks without scoring for two different stretches of just over three minutes.

Northeastern State tied the game at 18-18, then went up 21-20 with five points from Justin Johnson with just under three minutes left in the half. Pitt State bounced back, outscoring NSU 7-2 in the last 2:30 of the first half.

Pitt State extended its lead to 29-23 to start the second half, but a hot shooting Riverhawk squad pulled ahead 42-40 by the under 15 minute media timeout.

The two teams continued to battle, with neither able to grab more than a three-point lead over its opponent. McGee got a huge dunk with 7:01 remaining, to give the Gorillas a four-point lead, but the Riverhawks overcame it and took a four-point lead of their own, 58-54, with 4:48 remaining. NSU continued a 12-0 run to take an eight-point lead over the Gorillas before Andra Bailey stopped the Pitt State dry spell with a layup.

The Gorillas were not able to get the lead back, however, ending in the los.

Pitt State travels to St. Joseph, Mo. to face the Missouri Western Griffons at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, January 21.
