Berkeley College's New York men's basketball team was 0-10 all-time in the regular season against archrival St. Joseph’s before their matchup Saturday evening in Brooklyn. All that changed when the Knights defeated the Bears 70-69 in a hard fought down-to-the wire conference game.

Berkeley entered the game as the 4th ranked team in the USCAA and St. Joseph’s as the 20th ranked team. Winners of six straight, the Knights got off to a strong start with a 12-point lead at the half. However, nothing ever comes easy when these two teams meet and were it not for the heroic efforts of sophomore guard Kaseem Williams, who went 8 for 9 in the second half scoring 17 of the team's 32 second half points, including the last 11 of the game, the Knights might have ended up 0-11.

Williams led Berkeley with a game-high 21 points and Elijah Craig finished with a game-high 19 rebounds to go along with 12 points for a double-double. Jose Stable, Jovan Bovell, and Damir Redzepagic each had 10+ points for the Knights, who improved to 12-6, 4-0 HVMAC and next play Vaughn College on Saturday, February 5 at 1 P.M. at Borough of Manhattan Community College.
