SFU men win on the road

BROOKLYN HEIGHTS, N.Y. - Earl Brown scored 19 points and pulled down 12 boards to lead the St. Francis University men's basketball team to a Northeast Conference win at St. Francis Brooklyn, 64-61, Saturday.

Brown's eighth double-double this season was aided by contributions up and down the roster, including Ollie Jackson's 14 points and Tony Peters' career-high 13 points.

"Tony came in and was 6-for-6 with 15 points in 24 minutes," Red Flash coach Rob Krimmel said of his senior captain's performance."He played his heart out, he did a great job."

The Terriers (9-12, 5-5) 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.

"We challenged our guys after the LIU game to play together and to be more of a team and not a bunch of individuals," Krimmel said. "I thought we did that for 40 minutes tonight. We screamed for each other, we picked each other up. Down the stretch we made winning plays. I'm proud of our guys."

The Red Flash (2-19, 2-8) shot 55 percent from the field, their second best output this season, and held the Terriers to 38 percent. With the win, the Red Flash snapped an eight-game losing streak and a 15-game road skid dating back to last season.

Cannon posted 20 points and 11 rebounds for the Terriers, who shot a season low nine percent (2 of 21) from 3-point range.

"They're a great 3-point shooting team and they were 2 for 21," Krimmel said. "We did a phenomenal job defending the 3-point line and that's been a problem over the past three games."

The Flash also overcame a 14-to-7 differential in the turnover department. The Terriers cashed in SFU turnovers for 20 points; the Flash tallied only three points on turnovers.
