Varsity Lions Victorious! MTA ousts TABC in First Round Battle


In a packed Max Stern Athletic Center on Thursday night, the Lions edged out the TABC Storm 23-22 to advance to the quarterfinals against YDE in Brooklyn. It was an intense back and forth game, but the Lions, favorites heading into the game, were able to eke out the victory in front of the home crowd, which was out in force.

While the Storm led 15-11 at the half, the Lions came back from the break with a 9-0 run to take a 5 point lead. The Storm soon pushed back, eventually retaking the lead, but thanks to the tenacity of the Lions' defense and a clutch layup by Yehuda Colton ('17), the Lions emerged on top. Colton and Binyamin Buchbinder ('17) led MTA in scoring with 6 points apiece.
