MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. (AP) -- Lucky Jones and Mike McFadden scored 15 points apiece to lead Robert Morris past Sacred Heart 66-62 Thursday night in a Northeast Conference game.

Russell Johnson and Coron Williams added 10 points each to help the Colonials (11-7, 3-2) win their third straight game.

Trailing 37-36 with 14:07 left to play, Robert Morris scored 13 unanswered points, capped by McFadden's layup to go ahead 49-37 with 9:04 remaining.

Shane Gibson's layup with 1:27 left cut Robert Morris' lead to three, 62-59, but the Colonials made four free throws in the final minute while the Pioneers converted just one field goal to seal the victory.
