Fairfield vs Saint Joseph's

Fairfield 60, Saint Joseph's 57

  •  

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Derek Needham hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 16 seconds left and Fairfield earned a 60-57 victory over Saint Joseph's Saturday in nonconference action.

The Stags (8-5) led 56-54 until Carl Jones hit two free throws with 1:51 left, and then Chris Wilson added another foul shot for Saint Joseph's (5-4) for a 57-56 lead with 30 seconds remaining.

Needham hit the 3-pointer for a 59-57 lead, and then drew an offensive foul on the Hawks' ensuing possession. Fairfield inbounded the ball to Needham, who was fouled and hit 1 of 2 foul shots, and Jones' buzzer-beating 3-point attempt clanged off the rim to end the game.

Needham finished with a game-high 24 points.

The Hawks' Ronald Roberts Jr. had 19 points and 11 rebounds.

The win was Fairfield's first over Saint Joseph's since 1977-78, ending a 10-game losing streak in the series.

The Stags have now won four straight.
