After starting the season with two straight victories, Berkeley College fell under .500 for the first time after dropping their third straight game, 94-55 to Borough of Manhattan Community College last Sunday at BMCC.

Facing a quicker and larger Panther team, the Knights (2-3) fell behind early as BMCC took advantage of their size and speed to race out to a double digit lead that eventually grew to 30 points in the second half before the Knights would mount a comeback.

Kaseem Williams (Brooklyn, NY /Boys & Girls HS) scored six points and two steals and Stanley Hamp (Brooklyn, NY / Nazareth HS) netted four points during a 16-4 run that cut the lead to eighteen 65-47 before BMCC would go on another run of its own to put the game out of reach.
Williams led all Berkeley scorers with 20 points, while Yanny Cruz (New York, NY / Manhattan Center for Science HS) added eight points and four blocks while Francis Edouard (Brooklyn, NY / Nazareth HS) added five points and three rebounds in limited action.

Berkeley’s next action comes this weekend in back-to-back games against conference rivals Vaughn College on Saturday, December 12, at 7:30 in Corona , NY and Culinary Institute of America on Sunday, December 13 at 1:00 in Hyde Park , NY .
