Le Moyne falls in NE-10 semis

NEW HAVEN, Conn. — Northeast-10 Conference Rookie of the Year Michael Mallory scored 15 second-half points as top-seeded Southern Connecticut State University held on for a 62-55 victory over Le Moyne College on Wednesday night in the Northeast-10 Conference Championship semifinals at Moore Field House in an NCAA Division II men’s basketball game.

Le Moyne got to within two points late when Mallory answered with a conventional three-point play to push the Southern Connecticut lead back to five with 16 seconds left.
