Bryant falls from first, loses at Wagner

Sunday, February 17, 2013

 

Over the course of an entire 30-plus game season, the bad often times comes along for the ride with the good.

That was the case Saturday afternoon in Staten Island, NY as Wagner avenged an earlier defeat in Smithfield to Bryant by beating the Bulldogs 89-75.

The loss drops Bryant to 16-8 overall on the season, and 9-4 in the Northeast Conference.  With Robert Morris' 68-63 win over Sacred Heart Saturday, the Bulldogs drop into 2nd place in the NEC, one-half game behind RMU.

Joe O'Shea led the Bulldogs with 21 points, while Dyami Starks added 19.  But Bryant's defensive effort was lacking, allowing the Seahawks to shoot 54% from the floor, and 47% from the three-point arc.  Latif Rivers led Wagner (15-10, 9-5 NEC) with 20 points, and the Seahawks smoked the Bulldogs for a 20-8 advantage on fastbreak points.  

Wagner also outscored Bryant 52-41 in the second half.

A Neofall Folahan free throw and subsequent dunk by Jonathon Williams with 5:11 left gave Wagner the lead for good at 70-67.  The Bulldogs could manage only four points over a 4:18 span late in the game as the Seahawks pulled away.  

Bryant returns home next Thursday, February 21st to face Central Connecticut at home in a 7:00 pm tip-off at the Chace Athletic Center in Smithfield.
