Men’s Basketball rises to victory and ends losing streak

The Rams took on the MCLA Trailblazers in a MASCAC game Feb. 12 at the Amsler Campus Center.

Framingham struggled to begin the game and found themselves trailing by seven points after just a couple of minutes of play.

The Rams’ offense began to spark as they went on an 11-2 run to tie the game at 25-25 with 2:02 left in the first half.

As the half was about to end, John Kalton hit a corner three-point shot to give the Rams a 32-27 lead at the end of the frame.

The Rams continued with their momentum by extending their lead to 39-31 early in the second half.

Old habits started to catch up to the Rams defensively and MCLA took the lead with a 50-48 score midway through the second half.

Despite the sketchy defensive play, the Framingham offense showed no signs of stopping as they answered with a three-point shot by Tyri Hampton.

As time was running off the clock, the two teams went back and forth scoring constantly on offense.

In the final minute, Jared Gordon-Anderson was two for two from the free throw line to give the Rams a three-point lead.

Ki-Shawn Monroe answered back with two free throws of his own to bring the deficit to one point.

Both sides looked nervous after this as each team was called for a charge in consecutive possessions.

Keith Hollman sunk two free throws to give the Rams a three-point lead with 4.4 seconds left on the clock.

The Framingham defense stepped up big by forcing a turnover just before the Trailblazers could chuck up a shot. 

With this win, the Rams avoid tying the school losing record.

Framingham is now currently 1-8 in the MASCAC and 2-20 overall.
