Bucknell holds off Rhode Island in Diamond Head Classic

HONOLULU (AP) Bruce Moore scored 14 of his 18 points in the second half to help Bucknell advance to the Diamond Head Classic semifinals with an 84-82 win over Rhode Island on Saturday night.

Moore's layup with 1:08 left put Bucknell (5-5) in front for good at 82-80. Fatts Russell and Cyril Langevine split pairs of free throws in the final minute for Rhode Island (5-4) and Moore and Jimmy Sotos did the same for the Bison.

Bucknell trailed by seven at halftime but took control early in the second half with a 16-5 run start to the period, leading 51-47 on Moore's 3-pointer.

Rhode Island retook the lead a couple of times before the midpoint of the half, but the Bison mostly held the lead during the second half and had their largest lead at 71-63 with 6:49 to go.

Nate Sestina added 16 points and 10 rebounds for Bucknell and Sotos scored 12 of his 16 points in the second half, making all three of his 3-point attempts. The Bison made their first four 3-point attempts of the second half and finished the period 7 of 13.

Russell had a career-high 26 points and Langevine added 20 for the Rams.

Bucknell will face the winner of TCU and Charlotte on Sunday. Rhode Island will play the loser.
