Monroe College celebrates homecoming with basketball doubleheader

Monroe College celebrated its homecoming over the weekend with a men and women's basketball doubleheader.

The top-ranked Lady Mustangs kicked off the festivities by putting their 73-game winning streak on the line against TCI. The Lady Mustangs led by 13 at the half and continued to keep pressure on TCI. They went on to win 65-34.

Hoping for a doubleheader sweep, the men took the court against Westchester Community College. Everything seemed to be going Monroe's way in the first half, but it all fell apart in the second half. Westchester was able to break Monroe's trap and stun the Mustangs with a 65-64 victory.
