Robert Morris rallies for win over FDU as Lee scores 19
HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP)—Tony Lee scored 19 points—including two key free throws in the closing seconds—as Robert Morris rallied for a 64-59 win over Fairleigh Dickinson on Thursday night.
Jeremy Chappell added 14 points and five rebounds for the Colonials (12-5, 2-1 Northeast Conference), including two free throws that put his team ahead for good with three minutes left to play. Manny Ubilla scored 17 points to lead the Knights (5-8, 1-2), while Bernell Murray had 16 points, seven rebounds, four assists and four steals.
Ubilla’s 3-pointer with 4:19 remaining gave the Knights a 59-56 lead, but they wouldn’t score again. Lee then hit a jumper to cut the lead to 59-58, and the Colonials would eventually seal the win by going 6-for-7 from the free throw line over the final three minutes.
Fairleigh Dickinson narrowly won the battle of the boards 34-33, but the Knights were hurt by their own sloppy play, committing 22 turnovers.
