FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) - Jay Harris and Kenneth Ortiz scored 15 points apiece to lead Wagner over Sacred Heart 62-55 on Saturday.

Sacred Heart (4-21, 1-9) lost its eighth straight contest. The Pioneers shot a mere 26 percent, including just 4 of 27 from beyond the arc. They were led by Evan Kelley with 20 points and Louis Montes added 13.

Wagner opened things up in the seconds half, extending the lead to as much as 17 points before cruising to the win.
