Poor Shooting Dooms Bobcats in Road Loss to Pioneers

PITTSBURGH, PA - A cold night from the field and costly turnovers were too much to overcome for the Bryant & Stratton Buffalo Bobcats as they dropped their first game of the season, 102-86 on the road Saturday night at Point Park University.  The Pioneers shot nearly 59 percent from the field and held the Bobcats to just 37 percent.

Senior Mick Snowden led the way for the Bobcats, scoring a season-high 22 points, while fellow senior Jonathan Range scored 21 and added seven rebounds.  The Bobcats comitted 25 turnovers inside tough road environment but were able to force 28 Pioneer mistakes.  Point Park turned their forced turnovers into 34 points while BSC turned theirs into just 27.  Senior Jabari Hibbert finished the game with nine assists and eight steals.

WHAT THEY SAID

"It's always tough when you go on the road and our guys learned some things about themselves today," BSC Buffalo Head Coach Damone Brown said.  "We got punched in the mouth early but we were able to respond and get it back to a one-possession game towards the end of the first half.  Unfortunately, we couldn't sustain the execution and we got beat by a good team on the road.  There's always two outcomes of a game.  We either win or we learn.  Today was a learning experience for our team and we will use this as motivation to get better.  I still have the utmost confidence and belief in every guy in that locker room."

UP NEXT

The Bobcats will be back at home this upcoming Thursday when they host Jamestown Community College at 7 p.m. at the Burt Flickinger Center.
