Mount St. Mary's beats Saint Francis 71-61 to win NEC title

EMMITSBURG, Md. (AP) The freshly cut net draped around his neck like a well-fitted scarf, Mount St. Mary's coach Jamion Christian spoke excitedly about what just might have been the perfect night.

Playing for the Northeast Conference championship at home for the first time in school history, the Mountaineers thrilled a standing-room only crowd by rallying to beat Saint Francis University 71-61 Tuesday night to earn an automatic berth in the NCAA Tournament.

"It's just really special to be able to do it here in front of your fans with a great group of guys who you love," Christian said.
