SMITHFIELD, Rhode Island — Bosko Kostur scored 23 points as Bryant downed top-seeded St. Francis (NY) 61-51 on Saturday, closing out Northeast Conference play tied for second place with Robert Morris.

Bryant (15-14, 12-6) will play a home game against Sacred Heart while St. Francis (21-10, 15-3) hosts LIU Brooklyn in the quarterfinal round of the NEC tournament on Wednesday.

Kostur scored 15 of Bryant's 31 halftime points and finished 8 of 16 from the floor. Dyami Starks added 15 points on just 2-of-15 shooting, but was a perfect 10 of 10 from the line.
