The Berkeley College Knights, in the midst of a four-game losing streak during one of their most competitive scheduling stretches, regained their winning touch with two resounding Hudson Valley Men's Athletic Conference wins over the weekend to climb back over .500 for the season at 7-6 and remain undefeated in the HVMAC at 5-0.

On Saturday night against Vaughn College, the Knights broke open a close 12-8 game with a 14-0 run midway through the first half that led to a 75-38 win. Senior forward Moyram Espino (Forest Hills, NY/Hillcrest) led a balanced scoring attack with 14 points while sophomore forward Francis Edouard (Brooklyn, NY/Nazareth) had his best game of the season, finishing with 11 points, six rebounds, and three steals. The Knights defense also forced 35 turnovers and swiped 20 steals.

On Sunday, the Knights came out the gate slowly against Pratt Institute and led by just six at halftime, 35-29. But the Knights quickly found their rhythm to start the second half by going on a 19 to 2 run to extend to a 57-31 lead and eventually won by a score of 80-46. Senior guard James Dorismond (Bronx, NY/Bread & Roses) registered a double-double with 23 points and 11 rebounds while dishing out six assists. Major contributions also came off the bench from freshman guard Chevon Hope (Rosedale, NY/Martin VanBuren), who scored nine points and sophomore forward Jamel Culver(Brooklyn, NY/Nazareth), who added six points and pulled down four rebounds.

The HVMAC lead is on the line on Saturday, January 31, against conference rival St. Joseph's College at 7:30 P.M. at Brooklyn Technical High School.
