Bulldogs hit century mark in win

Friday, January 11, 2013

 

Suddenly, the Bryant Bulldogs have become an offensive juggernaut.

Five players scored in double figures, and the offense clicked for 61% shooting from the floor as the Bulldogs won their third straight Northeast Conference game...beating Quinnipiac 103-95 Thursday night at the Chace Athletic Center in Smithfield, RI.

Senior point guard Frankie Dobbs led the way with a game-high 24 points, and the performance also put him over 1000 points scored in his college career.   The Bulldogs (10-4, 3-0 Northeast Conference) also set new Division I records for points in a game (103), wins in a season (10), consecutive victories (5) and single-game field goal percentage (.607). Bryant also set a new all-time program record from the 3-point arc in the win, converting at just over 63 percent — the highest single-game mark in program history.

Sophomore guard Dyami Starks (Duluth, MN) finished the game with 20 points (7-10, 3-4 from long range) — his seventh 20+ point performance of the year — while junior forward Alex Francis (Harlem, NY) added a game-high seven rebounds to compliment 16 points off 7-of-9 shooting from the field.  

The Bulldogs led most of the way, allowing the Bobcats (5-9, 1-2) their final lead of the night at the 10:30 mark of the opening frame, 18-17. Back-to-back treys from Dobbs would push the hosts back on top, 23-20, just a minute later, the second of which sparked a 16-4 run that saw the Black and Gold open up a 36-24 advantage with 5:21 left to play in the first.

The Bulldogs return to action Saturday afternoon on the road, when they travel to New Britain, CT for a 3:30 pm game against Central Connecticut.
