October 23, 2012
Coming off a 5-18 season that saw the Storm go 5-10 in the North Eastern Athletic Conference, the Keuka College men’s basketball team will open the 2012-13 season on the road in the annual Gettysburg (Pa.) College Tip-Off Tournament, Nov. 16-17.
The Storm is led third-year head coach Thad Phillips, and Keuka will make its 2012-13 debut against host Gettysburg at 6 p.m. Friday night, Nov. 16 before playing either Kenyon College or Rowan University on the second day of the Tip-Off Tournament.
The Green and Gold then takes on Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in the home opener at 8 p.m., Nov. 20 before facing Hilbert College at 8 p.m., Nov. 26.
The Storm travels to Hartwick College for a 7 p.m. clash on Nov. 30 before opening NEAC play with an 8 p.m. home game against Morrisville State on Dec. 5. The Mustangs captured the NEAC regular season and postseason titles last year before losing in the first round of the NCAA Division III tournament.
After facing SUNY Cobleskill in a 3 p.m. road game on Dec. 8, Keuka will participate in RIT’s Harold J. Brodie Tournament, Dec. 14 and 15. The Storm will face Manhattanville College on Dec. 14 and either RIT or D’Youville College on Dec. 15.

When the Storm plays Gallaudet (D.C.) University at 3 p.m. on Jan. 12, that game starts a crucial stretch of seven of the next nine games at home between Jan. 12 and Feb. 6. During that stretch, Keuka hosts Penn State-Harrisburg (Jan. 13), Wells College (Jan. 16), SUNYIT (Jan. 26), SUNY Cobleskill (Jan. 27), Penn State-Abington (Feb. 3) and Cazenovia College (Feb. 6) while traveling to Cazenovia (Jan. 23) and Morrisville State (Jan. 30).
The Green and Gold closes out the regular season at SUNYIT (Feb. 9) and at Wells (Feb. 16), while the annual NEAC postseason tournament runs Feb. 23-24, 2013.
Keuka won four of its first five NEAC games during the 2011-12 season before dropping nine of its last 10 conference games.
