    The Peacocks shot 47.6 percent (10 of 21) in the first half but fell to 34.4 percent (11 of 32) in the second half.

    Fairfield (12-10, 4-6), which didn't shoot a single free throw in the first half, made 12 of 16 shots from the line in the second half, including six in the final 2 minutes.

    Yvon Raymond's 19 points led Saint Peter's.

    Fairfield has had both a five-game skid and six-game winning streak this season.
