Holy Cross built an early 18-point lead and withstood a furious rally by the Hawks, who got within 66-61 with 2:03 remaining. But Saint Joseph's missed five straight shots -- two 3-pointers and three field goals -- and the Crusaders hit four consecutive free throws for a commanding 70-61 advantage.
The Hawks didn't record their first field goal until Carr hit a 3-pointer with 5:01 left in the first half. During the 14:59 drought, the Hawks missed their first 11 shots and turned the ball over seven times.
Saint Joseph's shot just 3-for-16 in the half and didn't manage one conventional field goal. The Hawks were 3-for-8 on 3-pointers and 12-of-15 from the free throw line as they fell behind 34-21 at halftime.
