WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. – Union College forward Fitzgerald White (SR/Miami, Fla. ) scored a game-high 19 points, but it wasn’t enough, as a furious comeback in the second half by the Bulldogs fell just two points short on the road at Cumberlands (Ky.) on Saturday, as the host Patriots pulled out a 63-61 win in NAIA men’s basketball action.

With the defeat, Union fell to 9-4 on the year, while Cumberlands improved to 10-4 with the victory.

In the first half, Cumberlands controlled play for the most of the period, opening up as large as a 20-point lead in the half (38-18 with three minutes left in period). Union came back just a bit at the end of the period, but the Patriots still went into halftime up 40-29 on Union.
