Box Score: Found here
Looking for their first win of the season, the Riverhawks would unfortunately fall short against the DIII Region XII Commodores of Lorrain County Community College. Fairly evenly matched, the two teams would work to stay strong defensively and despite AACC outscoring their opponents in the second half (39-34), LCCC was able to stay ahead enough to claim the 87-80 victory. Struggling from beyond the arc, the Riverhawks failed to finish once from the three-point line (0-12).
Dayvon Cuffey (Glen Burnie, MD/Glen Burnie) would pick up his second consecutive double double for the Riverhawks, finishing with 24 points and 10 rebounds. Just shy of a double double, Deondre McNeill (Pasadena, MD/Chesapeake) finished with 13 points with his 9 rebounds, and Jacoby Rojas (San Angelo, TX/Northeast) would finish with 9 points.
In addition to shooting 0-12 from the three-point line, the Riverhawks unfortunately had 9 missed free-throws on the night – easy points that could have changed the outcome. With some great performances still being displayed, AACC is remaining positive as they look towards a successful future.
