When the United States Military Academy Preparatory School men's basketball team looked left, the Hawks' Tyquan Rolon was there. When the hosts looked right, Rolon was there. In fact, Rolon was everywhere on the court for the Mohawk Valley Community College's basketball team in Sunday's contest.
Rolon had his best game of the young season against United States Military Academy Preparatory School, which slipped past the Hawks 100-94 in a non-conference game.
The Military squad took a 46-40 halftime lead with six players finishing in double figures. The second half was an even match with both teams tallying 54 points.
Despite the Hawks' loss, Rolon was unstoppable by hitting 11-of-20 shots from two-point range along with an amazing 5-7 from three-point range. On the boards he grabbed eight defensive rebounds and two offensive boards that led to more points.
On the day, he finished with 36 points that included making three steals. He also went 9-12 from the free throw line as the Hawks as a team shot 51.5 percent (34-66) from inside the arc and 50 percent (9-18) from beyond.
The entire contest was pretty evening matched except for the Military squad's bench, which outscored MVCC 31-12.
