Saints Win Eighth Straight
Dec 5, 2013

Mercyhurst North East didn't let Thanksgiving break slow them down as they resumed their season with a win over Butler Wednesday night.

Mercyhurst, which appeared in the National Rankings (19th) in the first poll this week, was led by six players in double figures.

Damon Jones went 10-for-16 from the floor on his way to a team high 22 points. Brandon Dawson scored 16 on 6-of-8 shooting.

P.J. McLaughlin and Devonte Isom both had 14 points while Soutiri Sapnas and Je'Land Head added 12 and 10, respectively.

The Saints shot 53.5 percent from the field, including a 9-of-22 effort from beyond the arc.

Mercyhurst (9-1) will be back in action Saturday with a rematch with Nationally ranked Lakeland Community College in Ohio.
