HAMILTON, N.Y. (AP) -- Malcolm Miller scored 17 points Tuesday, including the game-winning free throw, and Holy Cross rallied in the second half to beat Colgate 69-68.

Justin Burrell stole the ball on an inbounds pass, fed it to Eric Green for a dunk and Holy Cross led 67-65 with 25 seconds to play. Miller drew a foul and sank both free throws, and Holy Cross survived a 3-pointer at the buzzer by Murphy Burnatowski.

Dave Dudzinski scored 14, and Burrell and Green had 11 each for Holy Cross (13-10, 7-4 Patriot).

Colgate led 36-31 at halftime and was up 50-40 after a 10-2 run in the second, but the Crusaders took a 60-59 lead on a dunk by Miller. Burnatowski's tip shot put Colgate up by two, but Miller tied it at 65 with a layup.

Burnatowski led Colgate (8-14, 2-9) with 16. Ethan Jacobs and Chad Johnson scored 10 apiece.
