A big difference in the game, besides critical turnovers by the Patriots, was field goal shooting as the Rangers made a sizzling 64 percent while the visitors hit just 39 percent.

C-I assumed a 16-9 lead in the first half and eventually led by 11 points at intermission. The Patriots cut the deficit to 50-43 after a pair of free throws by Josh Buell with 5:19 left. But a 10-0 run by the Rangers broke the game open.

The Patriots drop to 4-5 in the conference while C-I improves to 8-2 in the Mid-State and 17-6 overall.
