SMITHFIELD, R.I. (AP) -- Shane Gibson scored 34 points and Justin Swidowski added 12 off the bench to help Sacred Heart beat Bryant for the second time this week, 72-46, on Saturday.

Gibson, who scored 30 against the Bulldogs in their last matchup, was 11 of 17 from the field and hit a game-high nine free throws for the Pioneers, who shot 56.8 percent (25 of 44) overall.

Swidowski was 5 of 5 from the field and knocked down both of his 3-point attempts.

Sacred Heart (13-14, 7-7 Northeast Conference) led 20-16 in the first half before using a 14-4 run to take a 34-20 advantage into halftime.

The Pioneers pushed that lead to 59-31 behind a Gibson layup with 9:54 left to play.

Alex Francis was the only Bulldog in double-figures with 16 as Bryant (2-24, 1-13) shot just 36 percent (18 of 50) from the field, including 4 of 25 from deep.
