NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) Brandon Peel scored 15 points on 7 of 12 shooting and added 10 rebounds and four blocks to help lead Central Connecticut State past St. Francis 53-50 on Thursday night.

Khalen Cumberlander added 14 points and five assists and Faronte Drakeford had 13 points, five rebounds, and four assists for the Blue Devils (4-24, 2-13 Northeast Conference), who won for just the second time since December 20 and put an end to stretch of 17 losses in 18 games.

Central Connecticut State led the entire second half, and by as much as 10 midway through. St Francis battled back over the final minutes, however, and had an opportunity to tie on the final possession, but Ollie Jackson's 3-pointer missed at the buzzer.

Earl Brown scored 15 points with five rebounds to lead the Red Flash (14-12, 8-7), who shot just 38 percent from the field
