CHARLOTTE, NC- The Elizabeth City State Vikings earned a 54-38 victory over Johnson C. Smith University Monday night at Brayboy Gymnasium.

The Golden Bulls only lead came after Dante’ Drummer scored the game’s first basket at the 18:28 mark. The Vikings went on to stretch the game, connecting on five 3-pointers in the first half, two apiece by Trent Bivens and Blake Price. Price, who led ECSU with 10 points in the first half, finished with 14 points and 4 steals. Bivens finished with his second double-double of the season of 15 points and 11 rebounds.
