The Purchase Men’s Basketball team bested Sarah Lawrence 83-74 yesterday, in a long and intense game to move on to the Skyline Championship semifinals.


Junior Maxx Miller had a fantastic game,15 rebounds, three steals and finished with 30 points, as the Panthers lead scorer. Senior Willie Britton was also focused with two rebounds, three steals and put 15 points on the board.


The bleachers in the Purchase gym were packed with Purchase and Sarah Lawrence fans. The chants from the crowd vibrated off the wood floors and the atmosphere grew more rowdy as the game advanced.


“The fans also played a huge part in the win, the energy was amazing tonight," said Miller. “Our fans were loud and we fed off their energy during the game.”


The Purchase team knew they were evenly matched against Sarah Lawrence, and wanted to prove themselves.


“Our team knew it was win or go home and we came out and did what we were supposed to do," Miller said. "I'm proud of the effort and intensity we played with. We were there for each other whenever we messed up and stayed positive throughout game.”
