BANGOR, Maine – Grabbing their eighth (8-2) North Atlantic Conference (NAC) win of the season, the Husson University men's basketball squad improved their overall record to 12-8 with a 105-32 victory over Northern Vermont University-Johnson (3-17, 2-8 NAC). 

1st Half: 

Husson opened up the half strong on a 10-0 run over the first three minutes. All five starting Eagles pitched in on the scoreboard while every single player from Husson's bench saw minutes in the first half. With 13 minutes left in the half, a few quick threes by Justin Martin and Justin Thompson helped push the lead to 20-4. Teammate, Dylan Angel followed suit with a trio of back-to-back-to-back 3-pointers to cap off scoring in the half with a 50-9 advantage to set a new program record for the fewest points allowed in a single half. 

2nd Half:

Husson picked up right where they left off as they came out of the break flying into the second half on a 14-6 run over the first six minutes. The Badgers picked up their game and accumulated more points than they had in the first with ten by the 13th minutes of the second half. 

The Eagles kept the momentum rolling to the final minute as Trey Sibert and Kyanti Blyden closed out the excitement with a pair of dunks to capture the 105-32 victory for the largest margin win recorded since joining the NCAA.

HUSSON LEADERS:

Seven Eagles shot in the double-digits for the win. 

DJ Bussey led the Eagles on the scoreboard with 13 points.

Angel netted a career-high 12 points, shooting 4-5 from 3-point range while both Blyden and Thompson also chipped in 12 points. 

Achieving the tenth double-double of his senior campaign, Martin picked up ten boards and 11 points.

NVU-JOHNSON LEADERS:

Robert Dubose shot an impressive 6-10 from the charity stripe for a total of ten points, six boards, and three steals.
