The win snaps a four-game losing streak for the Friars, who placed five players in double figures led by strong performances from Bilal Dixon (18 points, 10 rebounds) and Vincent Council (11 points, 14 assists).
“I thought today was our day,” said a clearly-relieved Ed Cooley, his Friars now 2-8 in the league and 13-10 overall.
