NEW YORK – Earl Brown scored 19 points and pulled down 12 boards to help St. Francis (Pa.) snap an eight-game losing streak and win just its second game of the season, edging St. Francis Brooklyn 64-61 Saturday.

Ollie Jackson added 14 points and Tony Peters chipped in 13 for the Red Flash.

The Terriers (9-12, 5-5 Northeast Conference) led 56-55 with 3:20 left to play before Jackson and Peters combined to score the Red Flash’s next six points. The Terriers missed three layups and a 3-pointer during the spurt and did not score again until Jalen Cannon’s layup with 22 seconds showing.

The Red Flash (2-19, 2-8) shot 55 percent (24 of 44), their second best output this season, and held the Terriers to 38 percent (22 of 58).

Hilbert 86, Mount Aloysius 79

HAMBURG, N.Y. – Foul shooting woes got the best of Mount Aloysius, as Hilbert College upset the Mounties.

The Mounties held a 10-point advantage with 5:09 to play in the first half. But a string of Hilbert free throws to end the opening period allowed the Hawks to narrow the gap to just 37-35 at the break.

An Anthony Hodge free throw with 7:26 to play gave Hilbert a 64-63 lead. Mount Aloysius was unable to regain the lead the rest of the contest.

Jeff Stem scored 22 points for Mount Aloysius, while Dameon Turner had 15 points and 9 rebounds.

Hodge topped Hilbert with 24 points.
