On Saturday night, December 26, MTA played JEC in what turned out to be a thrilling game. It was a game of contrasts, as MTA dominated play in the first half and led 25-16 as the second quarter came to an end. However, in the second half, JEC began to chip away. By the end of the third quarter, JEC was trailing by just 6 and limited the MTA scoring to Binyamin Buchbinder, who scored all of MTA’s 9 points in that quarter (finishing with 20 points for the game). The score was tied at the end of regulation, as Ben Rabinowitz of JEC, who scored 9 of his points in the final quarter, hit a three from the right side with just 26 seconds to play, to tie it up. MTA called a timeout at this point but could not get off a decent shot as time expired. In the overtime period, MTA was limited to one foul shot and fell just short. Although the Lions did not perform as well as they would have hoped, they are looking forward to their upcoming game against Kushner in the “White Out Double Header” this coming night.
