Clinton Community College survived a hot shooting night from the Adirondack Community College Timberwolves with a close 75-70 victory.

Miller and Felo Niclas (Rosedale,NY) collected double-doubles with Niclas adding 16 points and 10 assists and 6 rebounds, and Miller with 18 points and 11 rebounds. Miller shot an impressive 80% from the field on the night. Three other Cougars finished in double digits, Rijkaard Jean-Baptiste (Brooklyn, NY) added 17 points, while Nate Peters (Brooklyn, NY) contributed with 12 points and Kyle Cahoon (Chazy, NY) chipped in with 10 points.
