St. Francis edges Central Connecticut State 59-57Feb 13, 2010 - 8:48 PM NEW BRITAIN, Conn.(AP) -- Will Felder scored 15 points and hit a 3-pointer with 46 seconds left to give St. Francis (Pa.) a 59-57 win over Central Connecticut State on Saturday.
Trailing 55-53 with 2:11 left, Felder's 3 put the Red Flash (9-16, 7-7 Northeast Conference) ahead 56-55. The Blue Devils (9-16, 6-8) reclaimed the lead on two free throws by Joe Seymore with 54 seconds left, but Felder answered just 8 seconds later.
