MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. (AP) - Lucky Jones scored a career-high 20 points, making all 13 of his free throws, as Robert Morris defeated St. Francis (Pa.) 60-48 Wednesday night to sweep the season series.

Robert Morris (16-8, 8-3 Northeast Conference), which has won eight of its last nine games, led 25-16 at halftime.

The Red Flash (2-20, 2-9), coming off a 64-61 win over St. Francis Brooklyn, got within four with 10:42 left, and were still within striking distance at 42-37 with 6:36 remaining. Russell Johnson then hit a jumper, Jones made two free throws and Karvel Anderson, who finished with 17 points, capped Robert Morris' spurt with a jumper.

Umar Shannon's 12 points led St. Francis (2-20, 2-9), which matched its lowest output of the season.
