    PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- Marcus Becker's tip-in of a missed 3-pointer at the buzzer lifted Brown to a 79-77 victory over Binghamton on Friday night.

    With the game tied at 77-77, Brown's defense forced a shot clock violation, giving the Bears the ball with 28.7 seconds left.

    Jason Forte drove the lane and kicked the ball out to Mark McAndrew, who attempted a 3-pointer with 1.5 seconds remaining. As the shot bounced off the rim, Becker tipped it in just before the buzzer sounded, giving Brown the win.

    Forte led Brown (2-4) with 22 points, all in the second half, and Luke Ruscoe added 21 points.

    Andre Heard led Binghamton (2-4) with 17 points, while Troy Hailey added 16.

    The lead changed 14 times in the second half. Both teams led by as many as five points, with Binghamton holding a 60-55 lead with 7:57 remaining, and the Bears rallying to grab a 73-68 advantage with 4:07 left on a 3-pointer by Mark MacDonald.

    Binghamton went on a 7-2 run to take a 77-75 lead with 1:31 remaining on a Hailey jump shot. Brown tied the game with 1:07 to play when Forte drove the lane for a layup.

    Binghamton shot 62 percent from the field, connecting on 32 of 52 field goal attempts.
