Thompson Goes Over 1000 in Cougars Second-Consecutive Triple-Digit Win

Coach Terry George

The Genesee Community College men's basketball team coasted to a 15-point road win over Mercyhurst North East by registering their second-consecutive 100-plus point game, 109-94, in their regular-season finale Feb. 28.

Rahmel Thompson entered the game with 990 points and his 21 against the Saints put him at 1011 for his career. Thompson joined teammate Brian Fobbs as the second Cougar to hit 1000 career points this season. Thompson, who wears jersey No. 13 is now No. 13 on the Cougars' all-time scoring list and needs 48 points to move into the all-time top-10. Fobbs is currently No. 4 and needs 82 points to get to No. 3.

In addition to Thompson's 21 points against Mercyhurst, three other Cougars recorded double-digit performances including Fobbs (30), Jarett Haines (26) and Brandon Peters (17).

Fobbs registered a team-high seven rebounds, just ahead of Peters' five and Haines' four. Thompson co-led the team with Peters in steals with three, while Peters and Haines co-led the team in assists with three.

Genesee shot 57 percent from the floor with 39 points coming from beyond the arc at a 54-percent shooting percentage.

With the game just a one-score affair with a Cougar 21-19 lead, Genesee went on a 17-2 run to go up 38-21 before taking a 52-38 first half lead. The Cougars kept a double-digit lead through the second half with a lead between 15-20 points for most of the way.
