ITHACA, N.Y. -- Chris Johnson scored 19 points to lead three players in double digits as St. Bonaventure held on to beat Cornell 72-68 Wednesday night in nonconference action.

After Shonn Miller's dunk tied the game at 10 for Cornell, the Bonnies (2-0) scored the next eight points and finished the half on a 25-14 run. St Bonaventure led at halftime 35-24.

The Big Red (1-1) fought back in the second half to make it a one-possession game.
