The College of Staten Island men’s basketball squad won for the fifth straight time this evening, breaking open a CUNYAC test against City College of New York, 76-50, in a match played at the Nat Holman Gymnasium. The Dolphins ran their record to 5-1 overall and a perfect 3-0 in CUNYAC play, while the Beavers fell to 4-6, 0-4, respectively.

Javon Cox added 17 points and 10 rebounds to the mix, while Dylan Bulger topped out at 12 points and a game-high 14 rebounds.
