NEW YORK — Dachon Burke scored a career-high 27 points, but Robert Morris fell 77-65 to St. Francis (Brooklyn) on Thursday, the Colonials' fourth straight loss.

St. Francis connected on 15 of 33 3-pointers, and RMU (13-13, 7-6 Northeast Conference) made just 2 of 19.

Jalen Jordan had 21 points for the Terriers (11-14, 8-5), who snapped a three-game losing streak against RMU.

A Chauncey Hawkins 3-pointer sparked a 28-12 run in the first half that put St. Francis up 40-23, and the margin was 43-27 at the break.

The Colonials opened the second half with a 13-7 run to pull within 50-40. St. Francis pushed the lead back to 15 with a quick 6-1 run. A 19-12 RMU run capped by a 3-point play from Matty McConnell brought the Colonials within 8 with 3:29 left, but they could get no closer.

Burke was the only RMU player to score in double figures.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
