Chris Cardoso registered a double-double of 12 points and 11 rebounds as Worcester State commenced its 2018-19 campaign with an 87-81 win earlier this morning against Clark University in the fourth annual Midnight Madness.
The early morning win for the Lancers was the program’s first against the Cougars in the Midnight Madness series, which began in 2015 with Clark scoring an 83-78 win at home that season.
Tyler Dion led the Lancers with a team-high 21 points, while Clark’s Biko Gayman tallied a game-high 23 points. Brendan Kittredge chipped in 17 points and 10 rebounds for the Red and White.
Worcester State led Clark, 39-30, at the break, while the Cougars outscored the hosts, 51-48, in the second half.
The Lancers return to the hardwood on Sunday when they visit Roger Williams for a 2 p.m. tip-off, while Clark heads to Newbury College on Monday for a 7 p.m. start.
