FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) -Kelly Beidler scored 16 points to lead Mount St. Mary's (Md.) to a 69-65 victory over Sacred Heart on Saturday.
Beidler also added eight rebounds for the Mountaineers (4-11, 1-3 Northeast Conference), who snapped a nine-game losing streak with the win. Shawn Atupem added 15 points on 7 of 10 shooting.
A layup from Tayvon Jackson capped a 6-0 run for the Mountaineers, giving them a 49-38 lead with 13:54 remaining in the second half. But the Pioneers stayed close, and used a 8-0 run to cut the Mount St. Mary's lead to 51-49 with 9:10 left.
