Don’t look now but the Bryant Bulldogs are off to their best start in D-1 history (8-2, 5-1 in NEC). Head Coach Jared Grasso has this team humming. The Bulldogs are averaging 92.9-points a game after 10-games in this 2020-21 season.
The Bulldogs raised some eyebrows after taking ACC’s Syracuse Orangemen to the buzzer in an 84-85 thrilling loss in New York. They then continued to keep people watching as they have gone 8-1 since and have done so with some very entertaining basketball. Their run and gun style keeps everyone involved and opposing defenses sucking wind.
The Bulldogs currently have 4-players averaging double digits. (Michael Green III;18.4, Peter Kiss; 16.9, Chris Childs ;15.5 and Charles Pride ;14.0.) But before you think this team is all offense, you can’t forget about “The Blockfather” Hall Elisias who is currently ranked top 20 in the nation for blocks.
The Bulldogs are currently ranked #91 (Best in school history) overall. Bottom line is that this team is fun to watch and could be on their way to a special season. Follow them now and be a part of it.
