Bryant wins eighth straight, beats Wagner

Sunday, January 20, 2013

 

Behind 17 points from sophomore guard Dyami Starks, and a second straight double-double effort from junior Alex Francis, Bryant defeated Wagner 82-59 Saturday afternoon at the Chace Athletic Center in Smithfield, RI.

The win for Bryant is their eighth straight overall - the longest in the school's Division I history - and improves the Bulldogs' record to 13-4, 6-0 in the Northeast Conference.  Wagner is 9-8 on the season, and 3-3 in NEC play.

The Bulldogs led from start to finish to beat Wagner in Smithfield for the first time in four tries, taking a 10-point margin into the halftime break.  They then used a 25-6 run that spanned nine full minutes in the second half to pull away for a 26-point lead, 69-43, with less than seven minutes remaining in the contest.

Five Bulldogs hit the double-figure scoring mark for the fourth-straight game at home and the fourth time this season. Starks (Duluth, MN) paced Bryant with his game-high 17 points and three boards, while senior Frankie Dobbs (Berea, OH) chipped in 15 points and five assists in 33 minutes of play. Francis snatched a game-high 10 rebounds to go along with his 12 points for his second-straight double-double (fourth of the season), while junior Corey Maynard (Adelaide, Australia) added 11 points and six assists and sophomore Joe O'Shea (Burlington, VT) put up 12 points and four boards off the bench.

Jonathon Williams led the Seahawks with 17 points and nine rebounds, with Eric Fanning adding 13 points of his own off the Wagner bench.

Bryant shot lights out from the field, once again eclipsing the 50 percent mark (56.3) for the game, including hitting 8-of-16 from three-point range.  The Bulldogs will be back on the road for their next game, as Bryant travels to Sacred Heart Thursday, Jan. 24 for a 7:00 pm tip-off.
