American vs Colgate

American U. 59, Colgate 58


HAMILTON, N.Y. (AP) - Charles Hinkle, American University's only player in double figures, scored 23 points including a clutch 3-pointer with 33 seconds left to lift the Eagles past Colgate 59-58 on Saturday.

Down 57-56 in the game's final minute after Colgate's Mike Venezia put the Raiders up with a 3, American wasn't done yet.

The Eagles (15-8, 6-2 Patriot League) called a timeout and, once back out on the court, got the ball to their leading scorer who drained what would be the game-winner.

The Raiders (7-16, 1-7) had a chance to tie it, but Sterling Melville went 1 of 2 at the charity stripe with 15 seconds left. Colgate got a 3-point attempt off in the final seconds but it wouldn't fall.

Hinkle sank five 3-pointers for American, which has now won two straight games and five of six.

Venezia was Colgate's only player in double figures, finishing with 13 points.
