Matthew Wright scored 22 points, including the clinching free throws with 12 seconds left, as St. Bonaventure edged Duquesne, 71-67, Wednesday in an Atlantic 10 Conference game at Reilly Center in St. Bonaventure, N.Y.

Youssou Ndoye's layup on a Wright feed with 33 seconds left broke a 67-67 tie and then Derrick Colter, who hit buzzer-beating 3-pointer to give Duquesne a win in the first matchup, missed two free throws, setting the stage for Wright's clutch free throws.

Jordan Gathers added 18 points and Dion Wright 16 for the Bonnies (16-10, 6-6).

Highlands graduate Micah Mason had 14 points, and Colter and Ovie Soko added 12 each for the Dukes (11-14, 3-9).

St. Bonaventure closed the half with a 12-2 run to take a 36-25 lead. Matthew Wright hit a 3 to open the second half, but Duquesne, which won the first game, 83-81, went on a 15-2 run to make it close. But this time the Dukes didn't make the clutch shots.

The loss was Duquesne's fifth in six games.


Boston College 62, Syracuse 59: Olivier Hanlan and Patrick Heckman hit 3-pointers in overtime, Lonnie Jackson made four consecutive free throws in the final 26.2 seconds, and the visiting Eagles (7-19, 3-10) handed top-ranked Syracuse (25-1, 12-1) its first loss this season.
