BROOKLYN – Four Cannoneers scored in double-figures as Pratt concluded their 2017-18 campaign by besting the Lions of King's College, 59-39, in conference play at the ARC. By winning their final Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference game of the year, the Cannoneers finish the season with a mark of 7-15 (2-6 HVIAC).
Senior guard Andrew Yaglenski concluded his Pratt career by scoring 17 points – leading all scorers. Tytus Millikan posted a double-double of 11 points and 13 rebounds, while Akil Philip chipped 11 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. Vishal Vanka added 10 points a career-high eight rebounds for the victors.
Trailing at halftime 27-24, Pratt would use the game's final 20 minutes to play some of their best basketball of the season. Six consecutive Tytus Millikan points, couple with an Andrew Yaglenski and-1, ignited a rally that saw Max Sass's team outscore King's 20-6 and turn their deficit into an 11-point cushion. With four minutes remaining and King's cutting the Pratt lead to single digits, Adam Blufarb would score five of the Cannoneers final 10 points as they cruised to a 20-point win – their largest margin of victory this year.
