SFU men lose again

February 7, 2013
The Altoona Mirror

MOON TOWNSHIP - Lucky Jones scored a game-high 20 points and Karvel Anderson chipped in 17 more to guide Robert Morris to a 60-48 Northeast Conference win over St. Francis Wednesday night.

The Red Flash stayed within striking distance for most of the game before the Colonials (16-8, NEC 8-3) pulled away with under seven minutes to play.

"We did some good things defensively but gave up too many second-chance points," SFU coach Rob Krimmel said. "We missed too many free throws and too many layups. In a game against Robert Morris, especially on the road, you have to do those things to be successful."

Umar Shannon led St. Francis with 12 points, followed by 10 from Dominique Major. The Flash shot 37 percent from the field.

Robert Morris led 25-16 at the half - the lowest output for the Colonials in any half this season.

"We got some open looks for people who were supposed to shoot the ball and didn't knock them down," Krimmel said. "We've just got to bounce back now and control the things we can control."

The Red Flash (2-20,?NEC 2-9) won the battle of the boards, 34-27. Earl Brown and Anthony Ervin each grabbed six rebounds in the losing effort.

The Flash host Mount St. Mary's Saturday at 7 p.m.
