Plattsburgh State's Travis Cox (35) battles underneath the basket for the score as part of a game-high 31 point night. The Plattsburgh State men's basketball team saw its playoff chances get much slimmer Friday, with a home-court loss to New Paltz at Memorial Hall. The Hawks, who sit in the last place in the SUNYAC, recorded a 73-68 win over the Cardinals that left the home team needing a win over second-seeded Oneonta to qualify for the postseason. The host team began the game well, taking a 4-0 lead early on and holding keeping ahead until after the midpoint of the first half. New Paltz battled back, though, and went into halftime with a 40-30 lead. Plattsburgh kept the Hawks from going on any notable runs in the second half, but the deficit slowly grew as high as 16 with just under 10 minutes remaining. The Cardinals then went on a run to narrow the margin. The Cardinals made it a one-possession game when junior Travis Cox scored a layup and converted on a free-throw to bring the deficit to three points in the final minute of the game. A missed three-point shot by New Paltz's Scott Reisert saw a defensive rebound by Plattsburgh's Matt Berhnhard, who drove up the court and ultimately set up senior Nick DeAngelis for a potential game-tying three with 16 seconds remaining. The shot missed, and Reisert picked up the rebound to end the threat. Cox's 31 points led the Cardinals, with only DeAngelis getting to double-digits, at 11. DeAngelis led with 8 rebounds, while three of his teammates each recorded 7. Gallery
