LORETTO, Pa. (AP) -- Shane Gibson scored 23 points as Sacred Heart took its first lead early in the second half and held on to defeat St. Francis (Pa. ) 75-72 Saturday in Northeast Conference action.

The Pioneers (6-11, 4-2), coming off a 66-62 loss at Robert Morris, fell behind by eight early, but rallied to tie it at 37 at halftime.

After the Red Flash scored the first four points of the second half, Sacred Heart launched an 11-0 run, with Gibson hitting two 3-pointers and Steve Glowiak a 3-pointer and a layup, to make it 48-41.

St. Francis (1-16, 1-5) got within two points twice, including 71-69 with 1:59 left, but the Pioneers answered with four straight free throws. Ben Millaud-Meunier, who led the Red Flash with 20 points, hit his third 3-pointer with 1 second left for the final margin.

Earl Brown had 14 points and 15 boards for St. Francis.
