PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Chris Lowe hit two free throws with two seconds remaining, and Tony Gaffney had 17 points and 10 rebounds, as Massachusetts nipped Saint Joseph's 70-69 on Sunday.
Lowe scored 13 points and added seven assists to become the school's all-time leader with 640, passing Carl Smith. Ricky Harris contributed 11 points for the Minutemen (10-15, 5-7 Atlantic 10), who snapped a two-game losing streak.
Tasheed Carr connected on a pair of free throws to give the Hawks a 69-68 lead with 6.4 seconds left.
Lowe took control of the ball at halfcourt, drove to the basket and was fouled by Ahmad Nivins.
The Hawks have dropped four in a row for the first time since the 2004-05 season.
Saint Joseph's was 0-for-7 from 3-point territory, snapping a streak of 495 consecutive games with at least one 3-pointer made. The streak began at the start of the 1993-94 season.
The last time the Hawks went without a 3-pointer came in a 56-34 loss at Southwest Missouri State in the first round of the NIT Tournament on March 18, 1993.
