Mar 13, 2016

NEW YORK (AP) - DeAndre' Bembry scored 30 points and Isaiah Miles had 26 points and 12 rebounds as Saint Joseph's beat VCU 87-74 on Sunday to win the Atlantic 10 Tournament championship for the second time in three seasons.

The fourth-seeded Hawks (27-7) locked up an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament, though they were likely getting in anyway. The second-seeded and defending champion Rams (24-10) will likely be in the field of 68, too.

JeQuan Lewis and Korey Billbury each scored 19 points for the Rams, who lost in the title game for the third time in four seasons.
