FAIRFIELD Conn. (AP) — Corey Hassan scored 23 points, and Liam Potter added 18 points and 13 rebounds in Sacred Heart’s 78-70 win over Stony Brook on Monday.
The Pioneers (6-4) trailed 55-39 with 12:03 remaining, and scored 13 straight points over the next 3 minutes. Stan Dulaire capped the run on a dunk to pull Sacred Heart within 55-52 with 7:51 left.
Chauncey Hardy pulled the Pioneers within 61-60 on a 3-pointer with 5:31 to go before Potter grabbed two offensive rebounds.
