ST PETERS 68, CORNELL 64
ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) -- Blaise French scored a career-high 22 points
to lead Saint Peter's to a 68-64 victory over Cornell in a
nonconference game Friday night.
The Peacocks, who went 5-26 last season, are 3-0 for the first
time since the 1990-91 season.
The Big Red (1-2) trailed 64-53 with 2:44 remaining after Desi
Washington hit a 3-pointer for Saint Peter's, but Cornell scored
the next nine points. Nolan Cressler's 3-pointer after a steal
by Galal Cancer made it 64-60, and a layup by Cancer with 1:32
left made it a two-point game.
After the teams traded missed shots on the next two possessions,
French, who made 10 of 12 shots, got inside for a layup and a
66-62 Peacocks lead. After Cancer missed a jumper, Washington
hit two free throws with 11 seconds left to make it 68-62.
Devin Cherry scored 14 points, and Cancer and Shonn Miller 13
apiece for Cornell.
