Bryant Falls Just Short at Robert Morris 79-76

Friday, January 31, 2014

 

Karvel Anderson scored 24 points, Anthony Myers-Pate added 21 of his own, and Robert Morris held on by a thread to beat Bryant 79-76 Thursday night in Moon Township, Pennsylvania.

The win moves the Colonials to 7-0 in Northeast Conference play and 12-10 overall this season. Bryant falls to 5-2 in NEC play and stands at 13-9 overall.

Alex Francis scored 30 points on 12-19 shooting, and also snagged 10 rebounds for a double-double in the loss. Corey Maynard shot the ball well for the Bulldogs and finished with 19 points, but Dyami Starks (averaging over 20 points per game this season) had an off night and finished with just 10 points for Bryant.

Robert Morris actually led throughout the entire game. There were no ties or lead changes, yet the game wasn’t decided until the last shot, a 25-footer from Maynard that hit the side of the rim and bounced out at the buzzer.

Robert Morris won the rebounding battle 36-27, and shot 94% from the free throw line (16-17) in the victory. The Colonials needed every one of those free throws down the stretch as Bryant made a furious comeback attempt in the last 8 minutes, turning a 13 point deficit into a chance to tie on the last shot.

Bryant shot 52% from the field (31-60) and came up just short. Thursday's game billed two of the NEC’s top teams on national television (ESPNU broadcast the game) and both teams played clean, solid basketball all night and made a good impression on the rest of the country representing their conference.

Next up for the Bulldogs is a road tilt at Sacred Heart on Sunday afternoon. Bryant’s next home game is Saturday, February 8th against Mount St. Mary’s.
