SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (AP) -Will Daniels matched a season-high with 28 points and Jimmy Baron hit a fadeaway jump shot with just over 3 seconds left to give No. 22 Rhode Island a 80-78 come-from-behind win over Duquesne on Sunday.
Baron's shot put Rhode Island (15-2, 1-1 Atlantic 10 Conference) up by one point with 3.2 seconds left, and Kahiem Seawwright hit a foul shot to seal the win in the Rams' conference home opener.
Reggie Jackson led four Duquesne players in double-figures, scoring 19 points. Kojo Mensah and Gary Tucker scored 14 apiece for the Dukes (11-4, 1-1 A-10).
The teams traded leads throughout the game, and Jackson's layup with 11 seconds to play gave the Dukes a 78-77 lead. But Jackson missed a critical free throw. Rhode Island got the ball back and Baron, who finished with 14 points despite shooting just 2-of-10 from behind the 3-point line, hit what proved to be the winning shot.
Daniels had a game-high 11 rebounds, and Seawright added 9 points with 10 rebounds for the Rams.
