NEW YORK (AP) -Akeem Bennet scored 12 points, including a tie-breaking 3-pointer with 1:18 remaining, and St. Francis (N.Y.) held on for a 63-60 victory over Mount St. Mary's (Md.) on Thursday night.
Bennet's trey broke a tie at 58-all, and Ricky Cadell, who finished with 11 points, sealed the win for the Terriers with a late layup for the final margin.
