MIAMI SHORES, Fla.—The Barry Buccaneers continued their outstanding defensive play with a 66-47 win over the Palm Beach Atlantic Sailfish on Wednesday night in the Health & Sports Center.
Danielle DeBerry scored a season-high 19 points, while Colette Eule came off the bench to chip in 11 points to lead the Bucs (13-6) to their fourth straight win.

PBA stormed out of the locker room and trimmed the lead to 37-30 after a jumper by Dolberry at the 15:26 mark. But that was as close as they would get as the Bucs rolled off an 11-0 run, capped by Jen Mitchell’s three-pointer at 10:41. Another DeBerry trey at 5:32 gave the Bucs a 22-point lead, their biggest of the night at 58-36.
