Baldwin scores 26 in Utica victory

UTICA – Gloversville graduate Matt Baldwin, a senior on the Utica College men’s basketball team, scored a season-high 26 points in an 86-81 win over Houghton College on Friday on senior night at the Clark Athletic Center.

Utica currently sits in fifth place in the conference behind Nazareth (6-5) and St. John Fisher (7-4). Houghton’s 23-game losing streak continues as they have yet to win a contest this season.

Utica (10-13 overall, 6-6 Empire 8) will return to action on the road next weekend when it travels to Ithaca on Friday (8 p.m.) and Elmira on Saturday (4 p.m.) for a pair of Empire 8 Conference contests to close out the regular season.
