Brooklyn Heights, N.Y. — St. Francis College Women’s basketball lost 70-60 to Fairleigh Dickinson University on Saturday extending their losing streak to 12 straight games.

The crowd was rocking inside the Pope Physical Education Center as the hosting Terriers trailed FDU by only two points to begin the second half.

St. Francis was playing their best basketball in weeks and looked like they had a good chance to end their 11-game skid.

Fairleigh Dickinson however, played the role of spoiler.

FDU started to pull away midway through the second half and bursted St. Francis’ bubble by handing the Terriers their 12 straight loss.

St. Francis hopes to rebound next game when they square off against visiting Northeast Conference foe Monmouth University on Monday, January 16, at 2:00pm.

Guard Sarah Benedetti scored a team-high 13 points for St. Francis.
