    PHILADELPHIA -- Ahmad Nivins scored 22 points and pulled down 10 rebounds and Tasheed Carr added 17 points as Saint Joseph's snapped a five-game losing streak with a 73-62 victory over St. Bonaventure on Sunday.

    Nivins, playing in his last home game for the Hawks (14-14, 6-8 Atlantic 10), has scored in double figures in 40 straight games, and has recorded 19 double-doubles. He leads the A10 in scoring, rebounding and shooting percentage.

    Chris Matthews had 15 points and Malcolm Eleby 14 for the Bonnies (14-14, 5-10 A10), who lost their 15th straight to Saint Joseph's.

    The Hawks never trailed in the game and led 52-42 with 7:29 remaining. The Bonnies rallied to within 57-52 on a layup by Andrew Nicholson with 3:36 to play, but Nivins hit a 6-footer, starting a 9-3 run, and the Bonnies never threatened again.
