LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. -- Daniel Stewart scored 25 points, one of three Rider players to score 20-plus, as the Broncos beat Quinnipiac 90-78 on Sunday.
Rider led by 10 with 4:55 left, but a 6-0 Quinnipiac run made it 77-73 with 2:46 remaining. Rider answered with a 9-0 spurt, including a Jimmie Taylor 3-pointer and three Stewart free throws, to secure the win.
Rider led 37-32 at halftime and started the second half on a 10-3 run, en route to scoring 53 second half points.
Taylor had 21 and Anthony Myles added 20 for Rider (4-4). The Broncs only turned the ball over five times and made 45.3 percent of their shots, including 7 of 18 from long range.
Colorado State graduate transfer John Gillon has chosen Syracuse, giving the Orange a potential starter at point guard entering the 2016-17 season.
DeSean Murray, who averaged 20.2 points as a sophomore at Presbyterian, will transfer to Auburn to play for coach Bruce Pearl.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
