    LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. (AP) -- Jerry Johnson scored 28 points, including the 2,000th of his career, to lead Rider to a 113-106 overtime win over Niagara in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference game on Saturday.

    Niagara (18-9, 13-5 MAAC) rallied to tie the score in the final seconds of regulation, but the Broncs (17-10, 13-5 MAAC) sealed the win with an 11-2 run early in the extra period. Edwin Muniz and Robert Taylor both added 23 points for Rider, while Jason Thompson had 15 points and eight rebounds.

    David Brooks had 31 points for the Purple Eagles, while Juan Mendez added 29 points and 14 rebounds.

    The Broncs' victory means the two teams will share the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference's regular-season title, although Niagara holds the tiebreaker and will be the top seed in the conference tournament.
