Montreat, NC- The St. Andrews University men's basketball team dropped another close game on Saturday as they fell 72-66 to conference rival Montreat College.

The Knights went into halftime trailing only by four 37-33 and even took the lead 53-52 midway through the second half, but then could get no closer as Montreat would make their free throws down the stretch. The Knights would miss two three-pointers with the chance to tie or take the lead late leading to the loss.

Montreat shot 51% for the game as opposed to the Knights' 40%. However, SAU made 8 threes as compared to Montreat only making six. The difference was free throws as Montreat (11-7, 5-3) made 10 more than the Knights as they shot 77 percent from the line.

SAU was led by junior guard Aaron Smith's 16 points and 5 rebounds and fellow guard Jibri Banner's 13 points (on 6 of 11 shooting). Also in double-figure scoring were freshman guard Titus Gary and his 12 points (all on three-pointers) and Jamal Watson's 11 points.

St. Andrews (2-10, 1-8) will next be in action on Tuesday night when they travel to Columbia, SC to complete their suspended game from Dec. 14 when the Knights trailed Columbia International (4-8) by four at halftime. Action begins at 7:30.
