JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP)—Tommy Pereira scored a career-high 17 points off the bench, hitting five 3-pointers, as Rider defeated Saint Peter’s 66-54 Thursday night in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference action to win its fourth straight game.

The Broncs (10-9, 5-2), whose winning streak followed a five-game skid, trailed by nine at the 10:02 mark, but pulled ahead 28-27 on Pereira’s 3-pointer en route to a 30-27 halftime lead.

The Peacocks regained a two-point advantage, but Shawn Valentine hit a 3-pointer and Pereira added two treys, making it 46-39. Saint Peter’s (6-11, 1-6) could get no closer than four the rest of the way in dropping its fifth straight game.
