TEANECK, N.J. -- Noah Morgan, the Northeast Conference rookie of the week, scored 21 points, including a 3-point play off a dunk to give Fairleigh Dickinson a two-possession lead in the final minute and the Knights rallied past Central Connecticut State 81-77 Thursday night despite owning the lead for barely more than three minutes.
Anderson had four, Jenkins three and Morgan two of Fairleigh Dickinson's 13 steals. CCSU (8-8, 1-2) turned the ball over 22 times to just seven for the Knights, who scored 18 points off turnovers.
Joe Hugley scored a career-high 33 points and pulled down 12 rebounds, his first double-double, for the Blue Devils and made 10 of the team's 28 field goals.
The Blue Devils built their largest lead, 61-49, by 12:56 of the second half but Fairleigh Dickinson broke a four-minute drought and came back on an 18-6 run to tie, 67-67, when Jenkins landed a 3-pointer.
Morgan's dunk and free throw made the lead 79-73 with 35 seconds left.

The Tar Heels and Blue Devils are chock-full of NBA talent and Final Four contenders. But there's strength in numbers in the ACC.
The Wildcats displayed during their four-game trip the kind of depth that usually sends John Calipari's team to the Final Four.
