UNION, N.J. (1/16/16) – The Kean University men's basketball team fell by a count of 87-54 to Stockton University in NJAC action on Saturday. The Ospreys improved to 11-5 and 6-3 in the NJAC with their victory.
Kean is now 2-12 and 2-7 in the NJAC.
Midway through the first quarter, the Cougars went on an 8-0 run with the second string in. The streak was capped by trey by Timothy Bradley to get within one at 15-14. Jodrell Thompson had back-to-back layups during the run and Keenan Williams Jr. added an old-fashioned three-point play.
But Stockton did not allow the Cougars to eclipse their score, and extended its lead to 37-23 at the break. The Ospreys scored 50 points in the second half to pull away for the win.
There were some Kean highlights. Diego Pujols was a whirlwind of energy and multiple teams went streaking up the court in transition to set up either himself or a teammate for a score.
Bradley also finished with a solid stat line: he was 3-for-4 from three-point range, with four rebounds, an assist and a steal in 23 minutes without a turnover.
Marcus Harmon led Stockton with 18 points and 11 rebounds for a double-double. He led all players in the game in both categories.
Kean will remain home next week to host Montclair State in NJAC play on Wednesday evening.
