BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - Je’lon Hornbeak and Justin Robinson each finished with 18 points and Monmouth rolled over Fairfield 82-62 on Tuesday night to earn the season sweep.

Monmouth, which extended its school record winning streak to 14, outscored Fairfield by 62 (173-111) over the course the schools’ two regular season matchups.

Hornbeak and Robinson combined for seven three pointers, as the Hawks (24-5, 16-2 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) drilled 13 overall and shot 54.2 percent from behind the arc. Micah Seaborn finished with 15 points and Chris Brady added 13 for Monmouth.

Tyler Nelson hit five 3s and led all scorers with 25 points for Fairfield (14-13, 9-9).

The Hawks finished the first half on a 14-3 run and took a 46-34 lead at halftime. The Stags did not come within single digits the rest of the night, and a Hornbeak 3-pointer finally pushed the Hawks’ lead past 20 with 1:44 to go.
