HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) — Earl Potts Jr. made a 3-pointer, had a thunderous dunk, took a charge and had a block in the final 3 minutes to highlight Fairleigh Dickinson's 76-74 comeback victory over winless Delaware on Saturday.

Barnett Harris hit two free throws to give Delaware a 74-66 lead with 3:04 left. Fairleigh Dickinson stole the ball on Delaware's next two possessions, and Potts drew a charge on the third and had a block on the fourth with 1:09 left.

Potts' dunk pulled FDU within 74-73 and his two free throws with 25.6 left gave them a one-point lead. Anthony Mosley missed an open layup with 8 seconds left and Delaware got the offensive rebound, but turned it over on the inbounds pass. FDU's Darian Anderson hit 1 of 2 free throws and Delaware couldn't get off a final shot.

Anderson led Fairleigh Dickinson (4-5) with 15 and Potts finished with 14.

Cazmon Hayes led Delaware (0-9) with 21.
