Despite an inspiring first half of basketball, Berkeley College failed to maintain the intensity necessary to pull out a victory against Union County College last night.

Tied at 41 at halftime, the Bulldogs shot a blistering 56.3% in the half led by sophomore forward Savereo Jackson and junior forward Donovan Black. The second half, however, would see the Bulldogs shoot only 26.5% going 0 for 9 from three-point range allowing the Owls to pull ahead for the 86 to 63 win.

The Bulldogs were led by Black with 17 points and Jackson with 13. Andre Javis led the team in rebounding with 7 boards and Justin Lewandowski had 4 assists. The loss drops the Bulldogs' record to 3-10 on the season.

The Bulldogs next take on the number one ranked Bergen Community College Bulldogs on Saturday, January 16 at 3 P.M.
