From there, CUA increased their lead to as large as 40 as the Cardinals shot a blistering 65.8% from the floor in the second stanza and outscored the Spartans 61-40.

Junior Adam Dickman scored a career-high 11 points while dishing out six assists. Kevin Wise (16 points), Craig Avallone (11 points), and Will Jawando (10 points) all finished in double figures.

Brandon Bushey chipped in 15 points as York (12-11, 6-7 CAC) shot 35.7% for the game and could not keep up with the hot-shooting Cardinals.

Seniors Hilleary, Avallone, and Wise were honored at halftime.
