Bryant wins on road, 65-60 over St. Francis, Pa.
LORETTO, Pa. (AP)—Peter Lambert scored 22 points and Bryant recorded its first road victory in Division I competition with a 65-60 triumph at St. Francis, Pa., on Saturday night.
Bryant (5-17) rallied from a 14-point second-half deficit. The former Division II team, in its first season of a transition to Division I, trailed 42-28 with 15:22 to play.
The Bulldogs used 3-point shooting by Lambert and Adam Parzych to rally. Bryant went ahead for good on a pull-up jumper by Cecil Gresham that made it 55-54 with 3:05 left. Lambert and Parzych hit 3-pointers down the stretch to help seal the win.
Parzych finished with a career-high 17 points, making 9 of 12 free throws. Lambert, a walk-on, hit six 3-pointers, and Gresham added 10 points.
Bryant won a neutral-site game over Quinnipiac earlier this season, but Saturday’s victory was its first on an opponent’s home floor in Division I.
Devin Sweetney scored 22 to lead St. Francis (5-16), which has lost 11 of 12.
