LORETTA, Pa. -- Anthony Ervin scored 19 points, Earl Brown recorded a double-double and St. Francis (Pa.) held on to beat Monmouth 70-68 on Saturday.

Brown finished with 12 points, 11 rebounds and six assists for the Red Flash (5-22, 5-11 Northeast Conference), who have won two straight games. Ben Millaud-Meunier had 12 points and Ollie Jackson added 11 points before fouling out.

St. Francis took a 68-63 lead when Millaud-Meunier made a 3-pointer with 1:29 left in the second half. Monmouth trimmed the deficit to two points with 12 seconds remaining on Dion Nesmith's layup, but the Hawks (10-19, 5-11) were unable to claim the lead.

Jesse Steele could have put Monmouth ahead with his 3-point attempt, but his shot missed and the Red Flash held on for the victory.

Nesmith led the Hawks with 20 points on 7-of-13 shooting and four 3-pointers. Steele had 19 points and six turnovers.
