    SMITHFIELD, R.I. -- Dyami Starks scored 26 points on 9-of-17 shooting to lead Bryant to an 88-67 victory over Central Connecticut State in a Northeast Conference game on Thursday night.

    Alex Francis had 18 points and 11 rebounds, Vlad Kondratyev and Joe O'Shea scored 12 each and Corey Maynard 11 for the Bulldogs (17-8, 10-4), who snapped a two-game losing streak. Bryant beat CCSU 69-62 on Jan. 12.

    Kyle Vinales had 18 points, Matt Hunter 17 and Joe Efese 13 for the Blue Devils (10-15, 6-8), who have lost four straight.

    CCSU played Bryant tough in the early going, but with an 18-15 advantage midway through the first half, Bryant outscored CCSU 25-16 the rest of the way to lead 43-31 at halftime behind Starks' 14 points.

    The Bulldogs, who shot 32 of 60 from the field, led 51-34 after O'Shea's two free throws 2:55 into the second half and cruised home.
