STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. (AP) - Marcus Burton scored 19 points and Orlando Parker added 16 with 10 rebounds as Wagner pulled away from Sacred Heart in the second half, posting a 74-62 victory on Thursday night.

Wagner (14-11, 8-4 Northeast Conference) scored 10 of the final 11 points in the first half, capped by a pair of layups from Parker and Burton, in taking a 34-27 lead over Sacred Heart (4-23, 1-11) into the break.
