HANOVER, N.H, -- Dyami Starks scored 35 points to lead Bryant to an 87-75 win over Dartmouth on Wednesday night.
Bryant opened the game with a 16-4 run and led from wire-to-wire.
Starks hit 10 of 18 field goals, including 5 of 8 from behind the 3-point line, and matched his career-high for points, which he set in the team's season-opening loss to Gonzaga on Nov. 19.
Alex Motila, who finished with 15 points, hit his third 3-point shot of the first half with 4:39 left in the first half to pull Dartmouth (1-1) within three, 29-26, but they would never get any closer.
Corey Maynard added 18 points, on 6-of-8 shooting, for Bryant (1-1). The Bulldogs shot 59.2 percent (29 of 49) from the field.
Gabs Maldunas finished with 14 points and 11 rebounds in the loss. Tyler Melville added 13 points.
Purdue coach Matt Painter says players haven't used the fifth-year graduate transfer rule for its true intent.
The dust has settled after players made their NBA draft decisions. Which college teams won? Which lost? Well, Villanova is pretty happy. USC, meanwhile, might not be as thrilled.
The 2017 recruiting class is short on point guards, with Trevon Duval leading only eight prospects from the ESPN 60 who are still available.
