NEW YORK (AP) - Velton Jones made a jumper with 11 seconds left to lift Robert Morris to a 60-57 win over LIU Brooklyn on Saturday.
Karvel Anderson knocked down two free throws to seal the game for the Colonials (15-8, 7-3 Northeast Conference), who have won seven of their last eight games.
Anderson led Robert Morris with 13 points. Lucky Jones had 11 points and nine rebounds, and Russell Johnson added 12 points.
Robert Morris, which had an eight-point advantage with more than 10 minutes left to play, saw its lead vanish late in the contest. LIU Brooklyn's Jason Brickman made two free throws to give his team a 55-53 lead with 3:01 remaining.
After Anderson's 3-pointer, the Blackbirds regained the lead at 57-56 on Jamal Olasewere's jumper. But Robert Morris pulled ahead for good after Jones' jumper.
