Jordan, Dunn, and Sanabria lead Terriers to victory over RMU
NEW YORK (AP) — Jalen Jordan had 21 points, Rasheem Dunn scored 16, and Glenn Sanabria added 15 as St. Francis (Brooklyn) beat Robert Morris 77-65 on Thursday night.
The Terriers (11-14, 8-5 Northeast Conference) snapped a three-game losing streak against RMU.
The first half opened with a tight battle between the teams. The Terriers held a slim 12-11 advantage before a Chauncey Hawkins 3-pointer sparked a 28-12 run that put them up 40-23, and the margin was 43-27 at the break.
The Colonials (13-13, 7-6) opened the second half with a 13-7 run to pull within 50-40. St. Francis pushed the lead back to 15 with a quick 6-1 run. A 19-12 RMU run capped by a 3-point play from Matty McConnell brought the Colonials within 8 with 3:29 left, but they could get no closer.
Both teams saw vastly different results from distance, as St. Francis connected on 15 of 33 3-pointers, while RMU made just 2 of 19.
Dachon Burke’s career-high 27 points were the most by any RMU player this season.
