LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. — Anthony Myles made a 3-point shot that capped a 7-0 run and gave Rider the advantage it needed to come from behind and defeat Pennsylvania 89-88 on Sunday.

Rider trailed by seven points with 3:23 left to play. Myles hit a 3-pointer to cut the lead to four, after which Pennsylvania’s Jamal Lewis hit two free throws. But Lewis’s points would be the last of the game for the Quakers, and Rider went on a 7-0 run in the remaining 2:55 — four free throws from Daniel Stewart and Myles’ game-winning trey — to squeak past Pennsylvania (2-8).

Myles finished with 16 points and Stewart scored 18 for the Broncs (6-5).

Julian Harrell scored 23 points after shooting 80 percent from the floor (8 of 10) for Pennsylvania and Miles Jackson-Cartwright added six treys. The Quakers missed three shot attempts in the final 2:20, and turned the ball over twice.

Saint Joseph’s 73, Boston U. 67

PHILADELPHIA — Chris Wilson and Ronald Roberts Jr. scored 19 points each to lead Saint Joseph’s to a comeback win over Boston University.

Trailing 35-28 at the break, the Hawks (7-4) fell 11 points behind early in the second half before steadily closing the gap, taking the lead on a tip-in by Halil Kanacevic with 7:04 left and then pulling away with an 11-2 run. Langston Galloway contributed 16 points in the win and DeAndre Bembry had 11.

The Terriers (7-6) led by as many as 12 points in the game but couldn’t stop the Hawks rally.

Maurice Watson Jr. led Boston with 21 points and seven rebounds, while Dom Morris added 11 points.

Buffalo 55, Drexel 52

PHILADELPHIA — Javon McCrea scored 20 points and grabbed nine rebounds as Buffalo defeated Drexel.

McCrea scored 16 points after halftime, including two quick buckets to give Buffalo a 28-27 lead. The lead changed hands nine times in the second half. A 7-1 run with consecutive buckets from McCrea and Joshua Freelove, plus a 3-pointer from Shannon Evans, put the Bulls up for keeps at 49-44 with 4:46 to play.

Allen Tavon led Drexel with 14 points and scored the only 3-pointer in 14 team tries.

Duquesne 88, Texas-Pan American 69

EDINBURG, Texas — Ovie Soko scored 21 points on 7-of-11 shooting to lead Duquesne to a road win.

The Dukes (6-5) took control of the game with a 22-4 run midway through the first half that included back-to-back 3-pointers by Micah Mason in building a lead that was never challenged. Mason contributed 14 points in the win, while Jeremiah Jones added 11 and Tra’ Vaugh White 10.

Hitting 34 of 68 from the floor, it was the third straight game Duquesne has shot at least 50 percent.
