PHILADELPHIA -- Derek Needham hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 16 seconds left and Fairfield earned a 60-57 victory over Saint Joseph's Saturday in nonconference action.
Needham hit the 3-pointer for a 59-57 lead, and then drew an offensive foul on the Hawks' ensuing possession. Fairfield inbounded the ball to Needham, who was fouled and hit 1 of 2 foul shots, and Jones' buzzer-beating 3-point attempt clanged off the rim to end the game.
Needham finished with a game-high 24 points.
The Hawks' Ronald Roberts Jr. had 19 points and 11 rebounds.
The win was Fairfield's first over Saint Joseph's since 1977-78, ending a 10-game losing streak in the series.
The Stags have now won four straight.
