    EMMITSBURG, Md. -- Shawn Atupem scored 20 points to lead Mount St. Mary's over Sacred Heart 61-45 on Thursday night.

    Atupem was 8 for 9 from the field and 4 of 5 from the free-throw line as the Mountaineers (6-14, 4-3 Northeast Conference) beat Sacred Heart for the sixth straight time. Mount St. Mary's also swept the season series with the Pioneers (7-11, 2-5) after winning 66-52 at Sacred Heart on Dec. 2.
