Guard Aleksandar Isailovic hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer as St. Francis Brooklyn beat Lafayette 65-62 on Thursday night in Brooklyn Heights, N.Y.

Forward Jalen Cannon had 19 points and nine rebounds for the Terriers, who survived a 35-point outburst by Lafayette guard Bryce Scott.

The Terriers (7-5) were able to come back from a halftime deficit behind Cannon, who is from Allentown, Pa., just a few miles from the Lafayette campus.

The loss ended a four-game winning streak for the Leopards (4-6). Guard Nick Lindner added eight points for Lafayette and forward Dan Trist had eight rebounds and seven rebounds.

Trist scored with 2:00 left to pull Lafayette, which trailed by 11 with 8:05 to go, to within 62-58. After a St. Francis Brooklyn turnover, Trist made a free throw with 1:02 left to make it 62-59. Scott hit a 3-pointer to tie the score at 62 with 21 seconds left before Isailovic (nine points) hit the winning shot.

Scott, who averaged 8.2 points last season, entered the game with an average of 14.4 points this season.

The Leopards led 34-30 at halftime, but the Terriers scored the first nine points of the second half to take a 39-30 lead. Lafayette finally got on the board to make it 39-32, but St. Francis Brooklyn made it 48-38 on a 3-pointer by Isailovic.

Scott made a 3-pointer with 11:43 left in the game to pull the Leopards to 49-45. But guard Brent Jones of St. Francis Brooklyn scored with 8:05 left to push the lead back to 58-47.

The Leopards were playing for the second time in three days, following a 79-54 win over Immaculata on Tuesday. Scott (ankle) did not play against Immaculata. The Leopards are off until a game at Seton Hall on Dec. 27.
