Yeshiva University Basketball Beats Defending Skyline Champions

For the second time this week, the Yeshiva University men’s basketball team beat the defending Skyline Conference champions as the Maccabees knocked off Purchase College 69-54 in a Skyline Conference showdown at the Max Stern Athletic Center on Sunday afternoon. The win improves the Maccabees to 6-1 in Skyline Conference play and 8-3 overall. Purchase College is now 1-2 in the Skyline and 1-9 overall.

Behind great teamwork and smart shooting, Yeshiva led virtually the entire way. The Maccabees raced out to a 6-0 lead and the only time Yeshiva was not in front was when Purchase countered with an 8-2 spurt to tie the score at 8-8 with just over six minutes gone by. From there the Maccabees went on a 12-0 run to take a 20-8 lead, and Yeshiva led the rest of the way.

The Maccabees assisted on 24 of 30 made field goals. Teaneck’s own Jordan Hod had eight of his game-high nine assists in the first half alone to set the tempo. Yeshiva earned assists on 14 of the team’s 15 field goals in the first half.
