“This was a very competitive contest throughout the entire game with the two teams tied at 12 at the half,” said Bryant coach Kenny Hays. “We kept our composure down the stretch and did a good job of making our free throws throughout the game. That was the difference.
“We also did a great job with our half-court defense in the second half of the game,” he added.
