UMass Lowell’s 5-Game Winning Streak Snapped By Sacred Heart


UMass Lowell hadn’t lost since its first game of the season, that was until Wednesday.

The River Hawks, which led by as much 10 in the first half, took a 39-35 lead into the break, but couldn’t hold on in an 87-80 loss to Sacred Heart.

With 14:04 remaining, the Pioneers’ Kinnon LaRose connected on a 3-pointer that capped a 15-2 run, as Sacred Heart led 50-41.

UML would chip away, however, and Jahad Thomas’ layup made it a 52-49 game, but the Pioneers kept their foot on the gas pedal and turned a 3-point lead into a 13-point cushion with 2:10 remaining, to sink the River Hawks.

UML was outrebounded 38-29 in the defeat.

Matt Harris led the River Hawks with 23 points and Thomas tossed in 22.

UML returns to action Sunday at 2 p.m. against NJIT (4-3).
