Men Fall Short at Brookdale

Brookdale Community College's Isaiah Johnson penetrated into the lane and set up Brian Crosby to give the Jersey Blue an 82-79 lead over the visiting Dukes with 28.5 left.  An empty possession by Cumberland followed by late free throws from Brookdale led to the 85-79 defeat. Freshman Terron Mitchell led the Dukes in the losing effort with 19 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 assists.  Seth Hackett added 17 points and Khaliq Ford chipped in with 13, while adding 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 blocks.  With the loss, Cumberland falls to 11-11 on the season with another conference road game looming on Saturday.
