Holy Cross (10-13, 4-5 Patriot League) jumped out to an early

The Midshipmen (3-20, 0-9) took a 34-31 lead in the second half

behind a Jordan Sugars’ 3-pointer. But the advantage was short

lived, as the Crusaders used a 16-5 run to go ahead 47-39 with

10:10 left to play.

Beans, who capped the spurt with a layup, had five points during

the run and Burrell added a 3-pointer.

Burrell made three 3-pointers and converted on 8 of 10 free
