BALTIMORE (AP) - Tony Gallo scored 15 points and Coppin State took advantage of Rio Grande's miscues in a 53-50 win on Monday night.

The Eagles led 53-43 with 3:03 remaining, and Rio Grande scored the next seven points to make it 53-50 on Jermaine Wamack's 3-pointer with 39 seconds left.

Michael Murray then missed two free throws for Coppin State, giving the RedStorm a chance to win it, but Brad Cubbie's desperation 3 was blocked by Michael Harper as time expired.
