NORTHFIELD, Vt. - The Norwich University men's basketball team fell in Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) play on Saturday afternoon, as the Falcons of Albertus Magnus College dispatched the Cadets by an 80-59 final score.

Caleb Casinas (Aiea, Hawaii) led the way for Norwich with 14 points on 4-5 shooting from three-point territory along with three rebounds, two assists, and a steal. Spencer Conatser (Reno, Nev.) and Jesse Davis (Woodinville, Wash.) each dropped in eight points, while Levi Gosselin (Nashua, N.H.) provided a nice six points, six rebounds spark off the bench in his first action in the maroon and gold. To round it, Kyle Booth (Northfield, Vt.) had a full score sheet with seven points, seven rebounds, six assists, and a pair of blocks. 

With their tenth loss in a row, Norwich falls to 6-15 overall and 0-7 within the GNAC. They'll stay in the conference for their next matchup, traveling to Lasell College on Tuesday night to take on the Lasers at 7:30 PM.
