WALTHAM, Mass. – After seeing their four-game winning streak snapped last weekend, the Bentley Falcons responded Wednesday night with a total team effort.

Bentley dominated the visitors from Adelphi, 75-51, in a Northeast-10 clash at the Dana Center.

“Tonight we played a team that doesn’t score it great, but they really fight you hard and defend,” said Bentley head coach Jay Lawson.

Bentley’s Tyler McFarland led all scorers with 19 points, while Alex Furness added 13, and Shaq Phelps scored 12 coming off the bench.

The Falcons led the Panthers by 12 at halftime. Midway thru the second half, the lead got as high as 33. A few minutes later, Bentley’s starters were out of the game.

Bentley improved to 6-4 in the conference and 11-4 overall. The Falcons are in the middle of the pack in the Northeast Division.

“There are about five or six teams that we’re right there with, but maybe not quite ready to totally challenge,” said Lawson.

For the Panthers, Duane Morgan and Anthony Libroia each had 13 points. But Bentley held Adelphi to just 31% shooting for the game.

The Falcons travel to American International on Saturday.

WALTHAM, Mass. – This was a matchup between the top two teams in the Northeast-10, both of whom are ranked nationally.

No. 1 Bentley had four players in double-figures – three of them with double-doubles – as the Falcons were able to hold off No. 21 Adelphi on Wednesday night, 77-66.

“It was a good win,” said Bentley head coach Barbara Stevens. “I told our team before the game that it was a measuring stick to see where we both are (at this point of the season).”

Lauren Battista was Bentley’s leading scorer with 19 points. The Falcons got double-doubles from Jacqui Brugliera (13 points and 14 rebounds), Courtney Finn (13 points and 13 rebounds) and Christiana Bakolas (16 points and 10 rebounds.)

The Falcons dominated in the paint, outscoring the Panthers, 38-26. Bentley also held a 20-7 advantage in points off turnovers and a 20-5 edge in second-chance points.

“We felt like we had an advantage over them with our post-player depth,” said Stevens. “When we had some matchup mismatches, I think we took advantage.”

Adelphi’s Sade Jackson led all scorers with 20, while Jessica Kitrys added 16 for the visitors.

For Stevens, this was career win No. 897. Her team is now 15-0 on the season, and will travel to American International on Saturday.
