Nurideen Lindsey finished with 11 points and Thompson had five assists for Rider, which led the entire second half.

Rakeem Brookins scored 12 points to lead the Saints (2-8), who have lost six in a row. Brookins missed the last three games because of protruding disks in his back. He missed all of last season with back problems.
