RICHMOND, Va. - Nick Robinson scored 20 points with eight rebounds and Shavar Newkirk added 18 points, including two free throws with 14 seconds left, as St. Joseph's beat Richmond, 72-70, on Saturday night.
A Robinson dunk gave the Hawks a 70-64 lead with 1 minute, 48 seconds left, but Khwan Fore made four free throws over the next minute, cutting the lead to two. The teams exchanged turnovers before Newkirk's free throws. A put-back by De'Monte Buckingham got the Spiders within 72-70 and the Hawks lost the ball out of bounds, but Nick Sherod's three-pointer bounced off the back of the rim.
Taylor Funk scored 12 points for the Hawks (13-15, 8-8 Atlantic Ten) and James Demery, who missed a loss Wednesday to George Mason with a sprained ankle, also tallied 12.
