Bulldogs have bite, win league opener

Friday, January 04, 2013

 

The winning ways for Bryant's basketball team are carrying over on the road.

Behind sophomore guard Dyami Starks (Duluth, MN) scoring a career-high 29 points and senior point guard Frankie Dobbs (Berea, OH) tying his career-best with 26, the Bryant men's basketball team earned its first-ever victory over Northeast Conference foe Robert Morris, 84-77, on the road in the league opener Thursday night.

The win improves the Bulldogs to 8-4 overall on the year, 1-0 in the NEC.  

"What I was thinking about at the end of the game was that two years ago when we played here, the final score was 91-38," head coach Tim O'Shea said afterward. "From that prospective, it really is satisfying to see just how far we've come in two years."

Just five players actually scored points for the Bulldogs, and only four were in the scorebook until the final two minutes, as junior Alex Francis (Harlem, NY) scored 18 points and pulled down a game-high nine rebounds. Junior Corey Maynard (Adelaide, Australia) went 4-for-4 from the foul line in the final 98 seconds while sophomore Joe O'Shea (Burlington, VT) added seven more to complete the scoring.

Bryant's lead was 10, 70-60, when the Colonials' defensive pressure kicked in and cut the lead down to just four, 79-75, with 34 seconds remaining. Bryant managed to hit its free throws down the stretch (29-36 for the game) to complete the 84-77 victory.

Now owning the best record among Rhode Island's Division I teams, the Bulldogs will take a three-game win streak on the road to Loretto, PA Saturday afternoon for their next NEC game against St. Francis.
