LYNN, Mass. – The Lyndon State College men's basketball team fell in nonconference action Tuesday night to Fisher College, 71-67.

Fisher built a 34-27 lead in the first half on the back of 14 points from Holmes.


Lyndon picked up the defensive intensity early in the second stanza, coming up with multiple stops while converting on the offensive end.  Three triples from Kendrick Mills helped Lyndon erase the deficit and take the lead.


The Hornets continued to work with a lead until the Falcons went on a run of their own to tie up the game late in the second half. 


A three from Cooper Neal gave the Falcons the boost they needed with just minutes remaining.  Unable to make things happen on the offensive end, the Hornets were forced to foul with the time winding down.  The Falcons knocked down the free ones to keep the Hornets at bay, taking the game 71-67.
