JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - Desi Washington scored 13 of his 23 points in the second half as Saint Peter's overcame a 32-24 halftime deficit to beat Central Connecticut State 64-61 Monday night in a nonconference contest.

The Peacocks (2-0) opened the second half by closing the lead to 34-31, and after allowing the Blue Devils (0-2) to rebuild the advantage to double digits, charged back with an 11-0 run to take a 48-47 lead on Washington's jumper with 8:19 to play.

The game was tied 55-55 with 90 seconds left, then an Yvon Raymond layup and a Washington 3-pointer sparked an 8-3 run that left the Peacocks up 63-58 with 16 seconds left.
