HAMDEN, Conn. (AP) - Ike Azotam hit a go-ahead free throw with 1:18 left and Quinnipiac beat Robert Morris 63-61 Thursday night in Northeast Conference play.

The first of Azotam's two free throws put the Bobcats ahead amid a 6-0 run that created a 62-58 lead.

Quinnipiac (11-13, 7-5) trailed 51-46 with 7:49 to play, but pieced together a 10-2 run over roughly the next 3 minutes and took a 56-53 lead on Izotam's layup.

The Colonials' Russell Johnson responded with a tying 3-pointer and Lucky Jones added a layup for Robert Morris' 58-56 lead with 4:21 to play.

The Bobcats then launched their 6-0 run and held the Colonials scoreless until Coron Williams' 3-pointer with a second left.

The win was Quinnipiac's third straight. Evan Conti led the Bobcats with 18 points, while Izotam had 10, all in the second half.

Johnson paced Robert Morris (17-9, 9-4) with 16 points.
