The Genesee Community College men's basketball team was on the verge of giving visiting Herkimer its first loss of the season after heading into the intermission with a five-point lead, but the Generals produced 51 second-half points to defeat the Cougars 86-74.
Brian Fobbs led all Cougars in points and rebounds with 34 and 13, respectively, in recording yet another double-double.
Two other Cougars hit double-digit points with Rahmel Thompson scoring 14 and Brandon Peters adding 10. Peters also had a team-high six assists, while Thompson and Tyrese Cherry each registered five boards.
The difference in the game may have come from three-point land where the Generals sank five more threes than the Cougars.
Genesee now prepares to return to conference play with a Jan. 24 game at Niagara County Community College set for a 7:30 p.m. start.
