EASTON, Pa. (AP) - Latif Rivers scored 19 points, including a 6-for-6 performance at the foul line in the game's final 1:12, to send Wagner to a 76-70 win over Lafayette on Saturday night.

Wagner scored 20 points off 20 Lafayette turnovers.
Tyler Murray added 12 points for the Seahawks, while Naofall Folahan and Kenneth Ortiz chipped in 10 points apiece.
Ryan Willen led the Leopards with a double-double, scoring 20 points and grabbing 10 boards.
