Jordan, Dunn, and Sanabria lead Terriers to victory over RMU
NEW YORK (AP) Jalen Jordan had 21 points, Rasheem Dunn scored 16, and Glenn Sanabria added 15 as St. Francis (Brooklyn) beat Robert Morris 77-65 on Thursday night.
The Terriers (11-14, 8-5 Northeast Conference) snapped a three-game losing streak against RMU.
The first half opened with a tight battle between the teams. The Terriers held a slim 12-11 advantage before a Chauncey Hawkins 3-pointer sparked a 28-12 run that put them up 40-23, and the margin was 43-27 at the break.
The Colonials (13-13, 7-6) opened the second half with a 13-7 run to pull within 50-40. St. Francis pushed the lead back to 15 with a quick 6-1 run. A 19-12 RMU run capped by a 3-point play from Matty McConnell brought the Colonials within 8 with 3:29 left, but they could get no closer.
Both teams saw vastly different results from distance, as St. Francis connected on 15 of 33 3-pointers, while RMU made just 2 of 19.
Dachon Burke’s career-high 27 points were the most by any RMU player this season.
