Bryant winning streak snapped by Sacred Heart
Friday, January 25, 2013
Sacred Heart handed Bryant its first Northeast Conference loss of the season and snapped an eight game win streak in the process, defeating the Bulldogs 87-76 Thursday night in Fairfield, CT.
Sophomore guard Dyami Starks scored a game high 28 points off of a career-high 10 field goals, including five 3-pointers, finishing the game one point shy of his career high. He was one of three double-figure scorers for the Bulldogs (13-5, 6-1 NEC), who shot 49.2 percent from the floor but allowed the Pioneers (7-11, 5-2) to convert better than 61 percent from the field.
Shane Gibson (26 points) and Steve Glowiak (21) were on fire from beyond the arc all night, combining for a 9-of-19 mark to lead Sacred Heart to a 45.5 percent shooting clip from long range.
Junior Corey Maynard chipped in 14 points off of a 6-of-12 shooting performance at day's end, while Joe O'Shea added 11 on 4-for-5 shooting, including a make on his only 3-point attempt of the night. Bryant shot just 64.3 percent from the free throw line as a team.
The Bulldogs return home for Saturday, when they will host two-time defending NEC champ LIU Brooklyn at the Chace Athletic Center at 4:00 pm.
