    WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. (AP) -- Dejan Delic scored 19 points -- including five 3-pointers -- to lead Monmouth to a 69-64 win over Saint Francis of Pennsylvania on Thursday night.

    Whitney Coleman added 16 points for the Hawks (8-12, 3-5 in Northeast Conference), while Jhamar Youngblood had 11 points and Marques Alston finished with 10.

    Devin Sweetney had 22 points and 13 rebounds -- both game highs -- for the Red Flash (4-17, 1-9), while Chris Berry and Marquis Ford each added nine points.

    Monmouth trailed 35-34 at the break, but Marques Alston's jumper early in the second half gave them a lead they would never relinquish. The Red Flash, though, kept the game close and tried to rally late, but Monmouth sealed the win by going 6-6 from the free throw line in the final 25 seconds.

    St. Francis did win the battle of the boards, outrebounding the Hawks 27-13.
