Sacred Heart 79, Mount St. Mary's 51

FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) -- Brice Brooks scored 14 points and grabbed 13 rebounds to lead Sacred Heart to a 79-51 win Thursday night over Mount St. Mary's.

Ryan Litke added 13 for Sacred Heart (13-13, 9-6). This is the Pioneers' first 13-win season since becoming a Division I program for the 1999-2000 campaign.

Gus Durr led the Mountaineers (9-17, 8-7) with 13 points, and Jeremy Goode finished with 11.

Goode gave The Mount a 3-0 lead with an opening 3-pointer, but it was the only lead his team would have.

Chauncey Hardy's dunk off a pass from Drew Shubik put the Pioneers up 17-7 just seven minutes into the game, and SHU built that to 41-23 at intermission.

Hardy finished the game with 11 points.

A 19-7 run to start the second half helped the Pioneers double up the Mountaineers 60-30 with 11:30 left in the game.
