Mount St. Mary's holds on for 2nd win, beats American 56-55

WASHINGTON (AP) Malik Jefferson hit a jump shot in the final minutes to give Mount St. Mary's enough cushion to hold off American 56-55 on Tuesday night for its second win this season.

Jefferson's jumper gave the Mountaineers a 56-53 lead. American's Josh Alexander made two free throws to close to the final score with 41 seconds left. Marvin Bragg stole the ball with six seconds left to give the Eagles a chance to take the win, but Sa'eed Nelson missed a layup. Omar Habwe grabbed the rebound to seal the win for Mount St. Mary's (2-9) which has won two straight after opening 0-9.

Jefferson finished with 12 points and a Division I program-record 20 rebounds. He had 12 offensive boards.
