MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. (AP) — Rodney Pryor scored 20 points and Kavon Stewart sank the winning bucket to lift Robert Morris to a 69-67 victory over Lehigh on Thursday night.

Leading by six late in the second half, Robert Morris (2-9) had to hold back a Lehigh surge that included three straight baskets to tie the game at 67. Stewart, who finished with 11 points, dropped in the winning layup with 1:08 left and the Colonials got two turnovers down the stretch to seal the win.
