SFU fails to get sweep

FAIRFIELD, Conn. — Aaron Clarke had 23 points as Sacred Heart beat Saint Francis, 82-70, on Friday.

Tyler Thomas had 19 points for Sacred Heart (5-5, 5-4 Northeast Conference). Mike Sixsmith added six assists and Cantavio Dutreil had 10 rebounds.

Ramiir Dixon-Conover had 18 points and eight rebounds for the Red Flash (3-8, 2-5). Maxwell Land added 12 points and Ronell Giles Jr. had 11 points.

The Pioneers evened the season series against the Red Flash. St. Francis defeated Sacred Heart 76-58 on Thursday.

“We’ve lost both games in these back-to-backs, we’ve split in these back-to-backs, and our goal was to go 2-0,” SFU coach Rob Krimmel said. “We got the first leg of that 2-0 last night, and then got it to a position where we were within six in the second half but couldn’t close. The first half is what got us in trouble. Our effort wasn’t what it needed to be, especially on the glass, and our defensive rotations were a little bit slower.”
