ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) Ferron Flavors Jr. had 21 points and 11 rebounds and Tyler Nelson scored 19 points to help Fairfield beat Quinnipiac 74-64 on Sunday night in the semifinals of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Tournament.
The sixth-seeded Stags, who have won seven in a row, will play No. 4 seed Iona in the championship game on Monday.
Flavors hit three 3-pointers and Tyler Nelson added a fourth during a 16-4 run that gave Fairfield a 24-12 lead midway through the first half and the Stags led until Cameron Young made two free throws to cap a 7-0 spurt that gave the Bobcats a 54-53 lead with six minutes to play. But seventh-seeded Quinnipiac (12-21) missed 9 of 10 field-goal attempts, and was outscored 21-10 from there. Nelson and Flavors combined to make 10 of 10 from the free-throw line in the final 2:11 to seal it.
