FM’s basketball ends the season strong

by Nicholas Shafer

The FM men’s basketball season came to a close last month, with the Raiders finishing their season strong by winning the final two games.

The Raiders finished with a regular season record of 10-14 overall, with a conference record of 7-9. Their records weren’t good enough, though, to move them on into the playoffs or Regional tournament play.

They ended their season after the final regular season game, in which they beat one of the top teams in the conference, Mohawk Valley Community College.

Guard Ayodele Akinmola led FM averaging 19.2 points per game, leading him to being named All-Conference 1st team and also All-Region 2nd team.

Forward Barceem Dukes was named top the All-Conference 3rd team, finishing the season averaging 12.6 points per game along with 4.8 rebounds.

With six seniors leaving after this season including Ayodele and Dukes, the Raiders have some key spots to fill, but they also have a lot of key returning players.

Hopes for this Raiders team should be high looking forward to next season.
