MOON TOWNSHIP - The St. Francis women's basketball fell to 13-10 overall Monday night thanks to a 67-53 upset loss at Robert Morris in Northeastern?Conference collegiate action.

Alli Williams posted her 17th double-double with 14 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Red Flash (NEC 8-4), but it was not enough as the Colonials (7-16, NEC 6-6) took advantage of a poor shooting night from SFU. Robert Morris got a strong night from Artemis Spanou as the junior posted 18 points and 15 rebounds.

SFU was held without a field goal for six minutes in the first half until Kelley Doogan made a reverse lay-up. The offensive struggles continued for the Flash in the first stanza, shooting 27 percent and scoring only 20 points before the break, tied for the second least this season.

SFU struggled to get into a rhythm early in the second frame. The Red Flash got a spark from Nickia Gibbs with 7:12 to play as she hit a lay-up and a foul shot. SFU narrowed the margin to 12 points with that play, the closest it had been since the first half.

"Robert Morris did a good job defensively on us," SFU head coach Joe Haigh said. "We didn't start well in the first half and it was a tough shooting night overall."

St. Francis travels to Quinnipiac Saturday for a noon tip-off. The Bobcats won the first meeting of the season on Jan. 21 85-69.
