The Judges rebounded from their disappointing overtime meltdown against Tufts to knock off host Clark University 69-48 Tuesday night. Brandeis got off to a slow start on 33.3 percent shooting from the field that found them down 26-25 in a very even first half.

The turning point in this one was the Judges 19-8 run to open the second stanza, good for a 10 point cushion with 13 minutes remaining. The Judges would never look back, upping the lead to 18 with just under 9 minutes remaining before going on cruise control.

The Judges continued to have trouble from the free throw line, only making 63.2% of their tries. However in the second half they were able to control the tempo of the game, making 5 of 7 trifectas and limiting Clark to only 2 points off turnovers.
Florian Rexhepi 08 had a game high 20 points, by far his best offensive performance of the season. Steve DeLuca 08 had his usual 18 points to go along with 5 rebounds.
Meanwhile for Clark University, Tim Dutille 06 paced the Cougars with 17 points and 9 rebounds. Dominique Beck 08 had a solid all around night, tallying 15 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists.
