NEC Player of the Year Keith Braxton (Glassboro, N.J./Delsea) backed up his accolades with a dazzling performance in the NEC Semifinals, leading Saint Francis back to the NEC Title Game with 19 points and 14 rebounds. The Red Flash appeared in the NEC Championship in 2016-17, a loss at Mount St. Mary's, but hasn't hosted the championship game since the 1990-91 season, its first and only NEC Title.

St. Francis hosts Fairleigh Dickinson in the NEC tournament championship game on Tuesday at 7 p.m.
