NEW YORK -- Justin Robinson scored 10 points, grabbed seven rebounds, dished out nine assists and had three steals to lead Monmouth to a 73-58 win over St. Francis Tuesday night.
After Sheldon Hagigal's jumper early in the first half gave St. Francis (5-5) a 13-10 lead, Monmouth rattled off 14 straight and never trailed again.
Monmouth (4-6) closed the half with a 14-2 run and took a 43-22 advantage into the break.
Hagigal, who finished with a career-high 23 points, scored 15 in the first 10:17 of the second half to pull the Terriers with six points, 53-47, but Andrew Nicholas hit back-to-back 3-pointers and St. Francis would never again get closer than eight.
St. Francis converted just 3 of 21 3-point shots.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
