Westchester Sports Recap0


SATURDAY JANUARY 6 Four Vikings scored in double figures as the Westchester Community College Men’s Basketball team overcame a terrific effort by Hostos Community College, and scored their first win of 2018, 95-86 over the host Caimans on Saturday. With the win, WCC has still not been outscored by an opponent during the 2017-18 season.

Sophomore Tremaine Fraiser continued his incredible season, scoring a team-high 22 points, including 16 during the second half as the Vikings led by three at halftime, but were able to break things open during the second half and coast to a win.

Also for WCC, Demetrius Whitney, Raykwon Fenton, and Brandon Martin chipped in 14 points apiece

SUNDAY JANUARY 7 For the first time all season, the Westchester Community College Men’s Basketball team trailed a game at halftime  and for the first time all season, the Westchester Community College Men’s Basketball team rallied in the second half for a win. 10 different Vikings scored points, including five in double figures, as WCC overcame a 33-32 halftime deficit to defeat a scrappy Bronx Community College team, 81-71 on Sunday at Viking Gymnasium. With the win, WCC still has not been outscored by an opponent during a game this season.

It was a battle from start-to-finish as an impressive Bronx CC (6-9) defensive effort kept things close throughout the game. It was not until midway through the second half that WCC was able to create some distance as the Vikings went on a 12-2 run to turn a 47-44 lead into a 59-46 advantage, a lead that WCC would not relinquish despite the best efforts by the visiting Broncos.

Sophomore Gabriel Cruz led the Vikings with 15 points, while Tremaine Fraiser and Randy Stephens added 13 points each. Sophomore Raykwon Fenton played perhaps his best game of the season, scoring 12 points – 10 of which came during the second half – but Fenton also made several key plays away from the ball during the game to help lead the Vikings to victory. Also for WCC, Brandon Martin chipped in 11 points.
