The Berkeley College Bulldogs fell behind early to the Montclair State University Red Hawks by a score of 13 to 2 before going on a 10-3 run to close within four before Montclair switched to a full-court press that resulted in a 14-0 run to extend their lead to 30 to 12.

Montclair dominated the rest of the way in the first half taking advantage of 24 points off turnovers to lead 45 to 21 at halftime.

The Bulldogs, however, held their own in the second half behind 10 points each from senior Mannie Malasig, sophomore Donovan Black, and freshman Savereo Jackson as well as 6 for 13 shooting from behind the three-point line for the game.

Nevertheless Montclair was able to pull away for an 82 to 51 victory.
