SMITHFIELD, R.I. -- Brandon Carroll scored 23 points and Bryant, which nearly blew an 18-point second-half lead, upset Mount St. Mary's 79-77 on Saturday, snapping a nine-game losing streak.
The Bulldogs (3-24, 2-12 Northeast) led by seven with 42 seconds left but seven free throws from Junior Robinson and Chris Wray's tip-in had the Mountaineers (15-12, 9-5) trailing by two with four seconds remaining. Bryant's Bosko Kostur missed the second of two free throws and Mount St. Mary's, after a timeout, got the ball to Robinson who flipped it at the basket from 3-point range as he fell but it went off the front of the rim.
Robinson scored 30 points and moved into the top five in the Mountaineers' career scoring list at 1,771. Wray added 21 for Mount St. Mary's, which had a five-game win streak snapped.
Former UCLA basketball player Billy Knight was found dead on a Phoenix roadway early Sunday. He was 39.
July is the most important month on the recruiting calendar. The foundations of the future for college basketball's elite will begin to be set, and the next wave of one-and-done NBA prospects will be identified.
We're just not sold on UCLA or Indiana yet. Need to see more from Maryland and Cincinnati. They're among the men's basketball teams that didn't make the cut for the 2018-19 top 25.
