RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Sophomore forward Terrell Spaulding (Paterson, N.J./Eastside) scored 16 of his game-high 28 points in the second half to help Felician University hold onto what was once a 22-point lead and earn an 85-79 non-conference men's basketball victory over visiting Franklin Pierce University on Sunday afternoon at Job Gymnasium.
Felician (4-3) has won four consecutive games for the first time since a six-game spurt in January and February of 2011.
