KINGSTON, R.I. -- Eric Mosley shot his way to a career-high 21 points as St. Bonaventure earned an Atlantic 10 Conference win over Rhode Island 67-61 Saturday night.
Mosley hit 5 of 11 3-pointers to help the Bonnies (11-11, 4-5) overcome an otherwise lackluster performance beyond the arc -- the rest of the team was just 1-of-12 shooting from deep.
Chris Johnson added 12 points, including 6-of-6 free-throw shooting, for St. Bonaventure.
Xavier Munford, the A-10's second leading scorer with 17.5 points per game entering Saturday, finished with 18 points for Rhode Island (6-16, 1-8), which has dropped six straight.
Rhode Island led 32-26 at halftime and 53-46 with 7:45 remaining. Youssou Ndoye's jumper with 7:30 left sparked a 9-0 St. Bonaventure run for a 55-53 lead.
Munford hit a 3 to tie it 58-58 with 2:18 left, but Demitrius Conger's two free throws with 1:57 remaining put the Bonnies ahead to stay.
