Final Stats

SMITHFIELD, R.I. (AP) - Ella Ellis scored 16 points to lead Army, but it wasn't enough to beat the Bryant Bulldogs.

Dyami Starks scored 20 points and Frankie Dobbs added 19 as Bryant defeated Army for the first time, 70-59 Saturday, to win its fourth straight game.

The Bulldogs (4-2) took control early with a 30-15 lead at the 5:56 mark. However, the Black Knights (3-3) allowed only two more points, an Alex Francis dunk with 1:47 left, to make it 32-22 at the half.

Ella Ellis hit a 3-pointer to open the second half, but that was as close as Army - which had won the previous five games in the series - would get.

Bryant, fresh off beating Boston College 56-54 for its biggest win in program history, also posted its first win in eight tries against a Patriot League opponent.

Alex Francis added 17 points and Joe O'Shea 12 for the Bulldogs.
