St. Bonaventure vs Niagara

St. Bonaventure edges Niagara in 74-72 win


  •  

LEWISTON, N.Y. (AP) Charlon Kloof scored 18 points, including the game-winning layup at the buzzer, as St. Bonaventure held off a late Niagara rally to win 74-72 on Saturday night.

St. Bonaventure (8-4) blew a 10-point halftime advantage as Niagara rallied late in the second half to take a 70-67 lead with 2:39 left. But the Bonnies tied it back up at 72 on a Dion Wright layup, then got the rebound on a missed Niagara 3-pointer with seven seconds left and Kloof hit the full court layup to avoid an OT showdown.

Wright and Jordan Gathers contributed 14 points apiece for the Bonnies, while Andell Cumberbatch added 11. Wright made it a double-double with 11 rebounds.

Antoine Mason led Niagara (3-9) with 24 points, including 9-for-12 shooting from the foul line in the final seven minutes that kept the Purple Eagles in the game. Marvin Jordan contributed 20 points.
