WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Tied at six a piece, the Juniata College mens' basketball team saw the home team use the next 8:40 of first half to jump to a 32-11 lead and cruise to the 92-66 victory, in Lamade Gymnasium on the campus of Lycoming College, Tuesday evening.

The Warriors' lead grew to as many as 28 in the first half, as they used another 10-2 spurt to go up 45-17 with under two minutes remaining in the first half. The Eagles were trailing 47-22 at the buzzer.

The Eagles had three members in double digits led by the two seniors. Jeff Berkey (Stoystown, Pa./Shaksville-Stonycreek) finished with 13 points on 5-9 shooting, 3-5 from beyond the three-point arc.

Ryan Jones (Coudersport, Pa./Coudersport) tallied 11 points with a team high five rebounds. He also chipped with three assists, tying the team high. He shot 5-10 from the floor in 22 minutes of action.
