READING, Pa. -

It's hard to ask for a better start to a season than what the Albright men have done.  They went 10-1 to kick off this year, including back-to-back wins in Puerto Rico to close out 2012. 

The Lions played their last non-league game of the season Wedneday night as Albright (11-1) welcomed Misericordia (6-6) into the Bollman Center.

Albright will take some momentum into conference play with a 68-48 victory.

The Lions only led by three at halftime, but they would pull away from the Cougars in the second half.

Pedro Perez registered a game-high 16 points for Albright. Zach Benjamin and Dave Singleton each dropped 11 points.
