Point guard Patrick S. Sissman ’10 sends a bounce pass to forward Michael M. Zieve ’11 during the Engineer’s 58-52 loss to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy on Saturday in Rockwell Cage.

After trailing Coast Guard by 13 points in the second half, Daniel K. McCue ’11 led a comeback that pulled the Engineers within four with under two minutes to go, but fell just short of breaking the team’s three-game losing streak.
