MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Lucky Jones and Russell Johnson scored 21 points apiece as Robert Morris defeated Wagner 83-79 in overtime Saturday night after losing a 20-point second-half lead.

Wagner never led at any point. The Colonials (17-8, 9-3 Northeast Conference) shot 58.3 percent (14 of 24) while building a 42-27 halftime lead, scored five points in the first 9 seconds after halftime and still led 64-53 with 5:45 remaining.

Kenneth Ortiz and Latif Rivers, who each scored 22 points, led the Seahawks (13-10, 7-5). Rivers' layup with 13 seconds left brought them within 72-71. After Jones hit 1 of 2 free throws, Ortiz's layup with 6 seconds left forced overtime.

Two free throws by Jones and a layup by Johnson gave Robert Morris a 77-73 lead, and the Colonials hit all eight of their overtime free throws.

Robert Morris has won nine of its last 10 and clinched its eighth straight winning season.
