Quinn Taylor made 1 of 2 free throws for Saint Peter's with 3:08 left for a 53-49 lead. But the Peacocks wouldn't score again. Jordan made a 3-pointer with 2:23 left and sank a pair of free throws with 13 seconds to go. Chauncey Hawkins added a pair for the game's final margin after Davauhnte Turner missed the potential go-ahead jump shot for Saint Peter's.
