JAMAICA, N.Y. – The York College men's basketball gave fifth-ranked Dickinson College a scare, but in the end, the Red Devils were just too strong and they defeated York by a score of 83-71 on Saturday afternoon.
Dickinson's Brandon Angradi was the star of the game, as he led all players with 32 points, making 10-of-16 shots from three-point range, including converting a four-point play with two minutes remaining to seal the victory. Gerry Wixted added 12 points, nine rebounds and four assists.
York (8-4) was led by Omar St. John, who scored a team-high 21 points, with 17 coming in the second half, and by Cyril Reid, who netted 20 points and drained four shots from beyond the arc. Jaron Williams chipped in 12 points, nine boards and two blocks. James Wolf grabbed a team-best ten rebounds.
Dickinson (10-1) got off to a fast start, thanks in large part to Angradi, who made three shots from long range in the first six minutes to put the Red Devils up 18-6.
From there, York was forced to play catch-up the rest of the way. York got within a single possession on several occasions throughout the game, but each time the Cardinals looked poised to go ahead, Dickinson responded back with a run.
