Colter’s last-second shot saves Dukes

  • Associated Press January 25, 2014

Ovie Soko scored 27 points and Derrick Colter’s 3-pointer at the buzzer lifted Duquesne over St. Bonaventure 83-81 Saturday night.

St. Bonaventure (12-8, 2-4 Atlantic 10) led 81-80 after Charlon Kloof sank two free throws. Colter rebounded a missed free throw with 4 seconds to play and drained the game-winner at the other end.

Micah Mason scored 15, Colter 14, and Dominique McKoy 13 with nine rebounds.

Marquise Simmons broke a 23-23 tie with a layup to put St. Bonaventure ahead and the Bonnies led 44-38 at halftime.

Colter’s 3 pointer put Duquesne up 55-53 at 15:31 in the second half, and the lead traded hands four times until Matthew Wright hit a 3-pointer with 47 seconds left, giving the Bonnies a 79-78 edge. Soko hit a pair of free throws to make it 80-79 with 21 seconds left, then he fouled Kloof.

Kloof finished with 23 and Wright 22.

Robert Morris 74, Wagner 70: Karvel Anderson scored 21 points as Robert Morris edged Wagner for a 74-70 win Saturday.

Robert Morris (11-10, 6-0 Northeast Conference) was trailing by 5 with 11 minutes remaining but went on a 15-4 run to take a 63-57 lead with 6:58 left.

Wagner cut its deficit to 71-70 on a 3-pointer by Marcus Burton with 15 seconds left. But after a pair of made free throws by Kavon Stewart gave Robert Morris a three-point advantage, Kenneth Ortiz missed a 3 for Wagner (9-10, 3-3) and Aaron Tate grabbed the rebound and hit a free throw to help Robert Morris seal the victory.

Anthony Myers-Pate added 12 points for Robert Morris, which hit 10 of 17 from beyond the arc and improved to 6-0 in the NEC for the first time in program history.

Latif Rivers had 19 points for Wagner, which made just 11 of 19 free throws.
