DAVIE, Fla.—The Barry Buccaneers dominated the 23rd-ranked Shaw Bears 88-69 in the opening game of the NSU Sharks Invitational at Nova Southeastern’s University Center on Monday afternoon.

The Buccaneers (4-3) used a 20-2 run in the first half to blow open the game and the Bears (5-2) never really recovered.

The Bears trimmed the lead to 16 on a Brooks layup at the break, but trailed 44-28. Ashley Lutz, who played 17 minutes after Ines Kerin picked up two quick fouls, scored 10 points.

The teams traded baskets in the second half until a three-point play by Danika Pisconeri put the Bucs up 64-45 with 12:01 to play. The Bears made their run, scoring the next eight points to cut the lead to 11 points, 64-53 on  layup by Kaula Jack with 9:42 remaining.

Tyler Hardy took over for the Bucs, scoring 11 of Barry’s next 15 points, including a three-point play with 4:15 left that pushed the lead back to 18, 79-61. A trey by Kerin and a layup by Pisconeri at the 2:51 mark gave Barry its biggest lead, 86-61, and the Bears did not get the lead under 20 points until a layup by Verdine Warner with 0:02 seconds left.
