CU men down Shorter 62-56
ROME, GA -- Brandon Springer scored five points in a 12-1 run in the second half and four Cumberland players netted double figures, helping the Bulldogs to a season-opening 62-56 victory over Shorter College at the Berry College Classic Thursday night.

Cumberland (1-0) was tied at 24 with the Hawks at halftime and led just 43-42 with 8:50 to play before taking control of the contest. Rontreal Braxton made one free throw and then hit a bucket before Quentin Turner scored and Jamar Finley added two foul shots. Springer then scored the final five points of the run, the last on an old-fashioned three-point
play with 5:17 on the clock.

Shorter began fouling not long after to get back in the game and got as close as five in the final minutes thanks for the Bulldogs hitting just 21-of-37 at the charity stripe.

CU limited Shorter All-American Tomas Pranciliauskas to 6-of-18 shooting from the field, including 3-for-11 from 3-point range. The Hawks made just 37 percent as a team from the field.

Quentin led the Bulldogs with 14 points, including 10-of-13 at the foul line, while Thomas Douglas added 13, nine in the first half.
FCS thumps MJCA 49-6

            The Commanders scored early and often getting to end zone five times in the first half of play.

            Mt. Juliet Christian had no answers as the Commanders racked up 396 yards of offense while holding the Saints to 108 yards of offense.
