MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. (AP) — BK Ashe had 17 points and 10 rebounds as Mount St. Mary's dominated the first half on Thursday night and cruised to a 76-52 win over Robert Morris.

The Mountaineers (7-11, 4-1 Northeast Conference) scored 23 straight to lead 30-7 on Chris Wray's 3-point play and went on to a 43-13 lead at the break.
