Niagara, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Deon Jones and Andrew Nicholas both scored 14 points as the Monmouth Hawks defeated the Niagara Purple Eagles, 85-74, in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference play at the Gallagher Center.

Also scoring in double figures for the Hawks (8-8, 2-3 MAAC) were Justin Robinson and Chris Brady with 13 points apiece as the squad picked up a second win in the last three outings.

The Purple Eagles (4-12, 1-4) were led by Antoine Mason who tallied a game- high 24 points, hitting all but one of his 15 free-throw attempts. Marvin Jordan pitched in with 12 points, Tahjere McCall 11 and Rayvon Harris 10 points and six rebounds in their third loss in as many games.

The Purple Eagles managed to stay within striking distance thanks to a 7-2 edge at the free-throw line and 10 turnovers by the Hawks in the period.
