BRIDGEWATER, Mass. – Jack Bors poured in 23 points off the bench to help lift the Bowdoin College men’s basketball team to a 88-81 win at Bridgewater State on Tuesday evening.

The Polar Bears improve to 7-4 with the win while the Bears fall to 7-5.

Game Highlights

  • Behind 13 first-half points from Bors and red-hot shooting from long-range (6-10 from three-point range) the Polar Bears built a 44-28 halftime advantage.
  • The Polar Bears pushed their lead to as many as 21 points in the second half
  • Down 13 with 2:21 to go, Bridgewater mounted a furious rally, rolling off a 9-1 run to trim the lead to just five points following a Keyon Armstrong three-pointer with under ten seconds to go.
  • The rally proved to be too little, too late, however, as Jack Simonds hit three late free throws to seal the victory for Bowdoin.

By The Numbers

  • He connected on 7-9 from the field and went 3-3 from beyond the arc in the win.
