Big second half leads Wagner past Bryant 86-73

      SMITHFIELD, R.I. (AP) – Jonathon Williams scored 27 points and
pulled down 12 rebounds as Wagner beat Bryant 86-73 for its ninth
straight win.

      Williams was 9 of 13 from the field and 8 of 10 from the charity
stripe as Wagner hit 13 of 17 free throws.

      Bryant led 47-44 after Frankie Dobbs sank two free throws.
However, Wagner (24-4, 15-2 Northeast Conference) used a 29-7 run,
capped off by two Williams free throws, to take a 65-54 lead with
10:47 left to play.

      Wagner pushed its lead to 15, 80-65, behind a Kenneth Ortiz
jumper. Ortiz finished with 17 for the Seahawks.

      Wagner forced 18 turnovers by Bryant (2-27, 1-16) and scored 23
points off those errors. The Seahawks also grabbed 18 offensive
rebounds en route to 20 second-chance points.

      Alex Francis led Bryant with 21 points and Dobbs had 20, but the
Bulldogs were outscored 44-26 in the paint.
