The Terriers lead the Bulldogs by 14 points as they hold on for a 34-20 lead at halftime.
Defense has been the tone for the game so far for the Terriers. The Bryant University Bulldogs were held to 7 of 27 shooting from the field including one lone three pointer made out of six chances.
The Terriers also held the leading scorer in the NEC Dyami Starks to 1 of 5 shooting. He also has a game high 4 turnovers and four out of the six total for Bryant.
The Terriers are led by Amdy Fall with 8 points off the bench. Amdy provided a huge spark to the Terriers offense with his high energy play and an emphatic put back dunk.
Brent Jones and Tyreek Jewell also provided 14 points combined for the Terriers on 50 percent shooting each.
Keys to a productive second half for the Terriers will be to continue their defensive effort on the Bulldogs. The Bulldogs are having trouble with the size and strength of the Terrier big men. The Terriers also have 4 blocks shots in the first half in contrast to the Bulldogs 1.
The Terriers big men will also need to continue feasting on the smaller Bulldog competition. Mixed with the talented guard play St. Francis will have less to worry about on offense.
