Albany 71, Pine 64

Although his Raiders lost 71-64 at Albany on Tuesday, Pine coach Drew Meyerchick was pleased with his team’s effort.

“They were winning by 19 in the beginning of the fourth,” he said. “We fought our tails off and got it to 66-61, which was a good sign because we could have easily given in and gotten whipped. So it’s good to see us growing in that aspect.”
