Bruins Avoid Three-Game Skid in Win Over Canterbury

After falling short in two consecutive games, the Northrop Bruins bounced back last night with a 64-49 home win over the Canterbury Cavaliers.

The Bruins’ Richard Robertson powered Northrop to an early lead, and they went into the half up by 10. Northrop would continue to increase the margin throughout the second half, and was able to get some bench players quality minutes late in the game.

“It’s always nice when we’re able to give some of the kids on the bench who practice so hard an opportunity to play,” says Northrop head coach Rod Chamble. “Any time you can play your whole team it motivates people to come back to practice and give it their all.”

Robertson led all scorers with 21, and Tyj Cobb put up 14 points and 9 boards for the Bruins. Michael Brothers, Jaylen Williams, and Mez Ijomanta were all in double figures for the Cavaliers.

Northrop’s next game is tomorrow at home against New Haven.
