St. Francis (NY) holds off LIU Brooklyn, 79-70

NEW YORK (AP) Brent Jones scored a career-high 31 points and helped power top-seeded St. Francis-Brooklyn past its arch-rival, No. 8 seed LIU Brooklyn 79-70 in a quarterfinal-round game in the Northeast Conference tournament Wednesday night.

The Terriers built a 13-point lead at the half, but LIU Brooklyn battled back to start the second half. The Blackbirds opened the period on a 20-9 run capped by a Martin Hermannsson jumper that cut the St. Francis lead to two, 44-42. Jalen Cannon answered with a three-point play and knocked down a jumper to spark an 11-2 run

Jones was 8 of 16 from the field, including 3 of 8 from beyond the arc, and converted 12 of 14 from the free throw line. Cannon finished with 15 points and grabbed 15 rebounds.
