BALTIMORE (AP) — Carl Jones scored 17 points and Ronald Roberts posted a double-double as Saint Joseph’s won its third straight game, beating Morgan State 70-60 Saturday night in a nonconference matchup.

Langston Galloway played all 40 minutes and scored 16 points, Roberts finished with 12 points and 11 rebounds and Halil Kanacevic pulled down 12 boards for Saint Joseph’s (8-4), which recorded a season-high 50 rebounds.

DeWayne Jackson led Morgan State (3-8) with 16 and Ian Chiles had 10, but the Bears shot just 30 percent (24 of 79) in the loss.

Morgan State cut a seven-point halftime lead to three, 32-29, after Chiles opened the second half with back-to-back baskets. But Saint Joseph’s rattled off eight straight to push its lead to 40-29 and pull away.

The Bears, who shot 1 of 13 from deep, got no closer than nine the rest of the way.
