LORETTO, Pa. (AP) Ben Millaud-Meunier had 19 points and six assists, and St. Francis jumped out to a 25-point halftime lead on its way to a 68-48 win over American University Saturday night.

Millaud-Meunier made three 3-pointers and was 6-for-6 from the free-throw line for St. Francis (2-1), which outrebounded American 43-27. Josh Nebo had 10 points and eight rebounds, and Ifeanyi Umezurike had seven points and nine rebounds.
