LORETTO, Pa. (AP) — Kaleb Bishop scored a career-high 21 points, all five starters reached double figures and Fairleigh Dickinson bounced third-seeded Saint Francis University from the Northeast Conference Tournament 84-75 on Wednesday night.

Fairleigh Dickinson (13-17), the NEC No. 6 seed, travels to New York Saturday to meet No. 4 seed LIU Brooklyn (16-16) in a semifinal.

Darnell Edge hit a 3-pointer on an assist from Jahlil Jenkins to forge a 72-72 tie with just under three minutes left, Noah Morgan followed with a layup and the Knights led the rest of the way.

Jamaal King nailed a 3 that pulled Saint Francis to within 77-75 with 1:10 to play, but Morgan stole the ball from King, was fouled, and made both free throws with 19 seconds left.

Edge scored 18 points with four treys, Jenkins scored 16, going 4-for-4 from deep. Jenkins had a game-high six assists. Morgan finished with 13 points and Mike Holloway Jr. 11.

Keith Braxton led the Red Flash (18-12) with 24 points and King added 17.
