Following last night’s thriller in which Bronx(16-11 Overall and 5-5 CUNYAC) defeated Hostos (14-9 Overall and 6-4 CUNYAC), 91-88, the 2016-17 CUNYAC Community College Men’s Basketball Semi-Finals have been set. Beginning on February 15th at BMCC four teams will begin vying for this year’s crown.

The #1 seeded and reigning champion Red Hawks from LaGuardia (19-6 Overall and 9-1 CUNYAC) will kick off the tournament against the #4 seeded Bronx Broncos (15-12 Overall and 6-4 CUNYAC) in the night’s first semi-final matchup at 6:00 p.m.

The Red Hawks face a tough matchup against the Broncos who are sporting a 6-4 record in conference play. The Red Hawks have defeated the Broncos in both matchups this season but Bronx is riding high following last night’s victory which they needed just to get into this year’s tournament. LaGuardia enters the tournament winning four of their last five, all against Region XV Competition.

The second matchup of the night, scheduled for 8:00 p.m., features the #2 seed Hostos CC Caimans (14-9 Overall and 6-4 CUNYAC). They will square off against the #3 seeded BMCC Panthers (12-10 Overall and 5-5 CUNYAC). BMCC is lead by the CUNYAC’s leading scorer, Terrell Fullerton who is scoring at 24.4 PPG clip. Hostos likes to spread the wealth and have the Region’s and CUNYAC’s leading court general in Jemal Smith who has 11.3 assists per game.

LaGuardia enters the tournament just outside of the NJCAA’s top ten rankings and have received votes for consideration. Their lone conference loss this year was at the hands of the Hostos Caimans, who enter the tournament as the #2 seed. Wednesday’s winners will advance to the CUNYAC Championship Game, which will be played Friday, February 19, 2017 at BMCC. That game is slated to begin at 8:30 p.m.
