Forward Gerrard Newby (SO/Lexington, Ky.) and center Deante Johnson (SR/Cincinnati, Ohio) scored 17 points, apiece, as the No. 23 Union College men’s basketball team never trailed against Point (Ga.) on Wednesday night, rolling to an 81-65 victory in Appalachian Athletic Conference play at Robsion Arena.

With the victory, the Bulldogs won their 12th straight game to move to 21-4 overall, 13-1 in the AAC. Point fell to 3-23, 2-13 in the AAC with the defeat.

In the victory, the game was essentially put out of Point’s reach in the first three minutes of regulation, as the Bulldogs came out on absolute fire out of the gate. When the dust settled, Union had held a huge 14-0 lead with 17 minutes left in the first half.
