With a depleted squad, Hagerstown Community College just ran out of gas against visiting Montgomery College-Germantown on Wednesday night in their Maryland JuCo Conference men's basketball game.
The Hawks, who only have seven of their original 14 players left on the team, fell 81-74 to the Gryphons.
HCC coach Kenny Keyes said three of the four players lost to grades have a chance to rejoin the team if their grades improve.
They needed them Wednesday night.
"We played well, but we got tired," said Keyes, whose team took its final lead at 45-44 with 15 minutes remaining in the second half. "We only had seven players. We made 23 turnovers and that was the whole game in a nutshell. That comes from being exhausted and playing so many minutes. Those guys aren't used to playing so many minutes. A few of the players were barely getting minutes at the beginning of the season. Now, they are getting a lot of minutes."
