Just over a year ago, the Bulldogs and the Big Green met after Thanksgiving. The outcome? A 63-61 loss for the Dawgs. This year, the narrative was flipped.
Charles Pride didn't have the scoring outburst he did in the first game. He collected 6 points alongside 7 rebounds. Same with Doug Edert, who had 8 points himself. Both that's okay, because the Bulldogs possess depth. Earl Timberlake came in with a dominate double-double, 19 points and 12 rebounds. Off the bench, Forward Kvonn Cramer had 10 points, and showed his defensive versatility with 5 rebounds, 2 steals, and 3 blocks.
The star of the night was Sherif Gross-Bullock, who tallied his 2nd straight game with 20+ points. Ending the night with 27 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals, SGB can and will be a reliable scorer for Bryant for the season ahead.
The game ended in a 19 point blowout, but that wasn't the case for majority of the night. At one point, Bryant was up 2 points with 5 minutes left.
The Dawgs can exhale for the evening as they head back to Smithfield 2-0. Up next is Maine-Fort Kent, a DII school in the USCAA. It should be another win in the column for Bryant.
