    LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- Chris McNaughteon scored 16 points and Chris Niesz hit a 3-pointer as time expired to lift Bucknell to a 60-59 victory over Colgate on Saturday.

    Niesz and Kevin Bettencourt each added 10 points for the Bison (19-9, 10-4 Patriot League), who led 32-30 at the half.

    Kyle Roemer scored 14 points and Jon Simon had 11 for Colgate (12-15, 7-7).

    Colgate took a one-point lead early in the second half but lost it immediately and trailed until the final minutes, falling behind 57-47 on a 3-pointer by Charles Lee with 5:09 remaining.

    A 3-pointer by Kyle Roemer tied the score 57-57 with 2:01 remaining and Roemer's rebound led to a jumper by Andrew Zidar that put Colgate ahead 59-57 with 53 seconds left on the clock. Reed missed a free throw shot and Niesz, assisted by Lee, then put in the winning basket.
