The Brescia Men's Basketball team dropped a tough decision to Wilberforce on Tuesday. The final score was 92-64, but that score did not reflect how close the game was until the final minutes. Brescia actually led for the first 15:00 of the game, before an icy shooting stretch before the half allowed the homestanding Bulldogs to take a 38-30 lead into the break.
Brescia struggled to find their shooting touch in the second stanza as well, but still managed to keep the game within reach, only trailing 66-56 with 6:00 remaining in the contest. However, Wilberforce banked in a 30-footer as the shot clock expired at that point, and then proceeded to hit four more three pointers in succession within 1:20 of game time, pushing the lead from 10 to 22.
For the game, Wilberforce shot 37-69 (54%) from the field and 11-25 (44%) from three-point range. Brescia struggled from the floor all night, missing several wide open looks on their way to shooting 24-56 (43%) and just 4-20 (20%) from long range. Jermain Langley had 18 points to lead Brescia, followed by Trey Howard with 15 points.
Brescia returns to action this weekend in Pittsburgh, PA, as they open KIAC play against Point Park University on Saturday and Carlow University on Sunday.
