Senior Day Sweep for Albany State
It was senior day at HPER Gym for the Albany State basketball teams. With more than half of the Golden Rams moving on when this season expires, it was a big day for the men's team.
The Albany State Golden Rams and Lady Rams capped off senior day in style with a sweep of Claflin Univeristy. The men's team held off the Panthers 65-63 behind 15 points from Rachard Lofton.
The Golden Rams trailed 37-30 at the half, but opened the second on a 12-0 run. Senior Demarcus Blunt pitched in 13 points shooting 63% from the field.
The Lady Rams needed a similar second half run to pull away from the Lady Panthers. A 13-2 run kept Claflin at bay for the 78-65 victory.
Albany State travels to Stillman College to end the regular season Thursday.
