NEW BRITAIN, Conn. -- Tyler Kohl had 25 points and 11 rebounds on Saturday and Central Connecticut never trailed in the second half for an 80-76 win over Bryant.
The Blue Devils (9-10, 2-4 Northeast Conference) made 6 of 7 free throws in the final 42 seconds to hold on for the win. Kohl missed the front end of a 1-and-1 that gave the Bulldogs (2-17, 1-5) a chance to tie, but Tanner Johnson's 3-point attempt was off line with 19 seconds left.
Central Connecticut went in front for good at 38-36 early in the second half and stretched the lead to 63-49 on Austin Nehls' 3-pointer near the midpoint of the half.
