Richmond 62, Prairie View 48

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Jermaine Bucknor scored 19 points,
including a pair of 3-pointers during a decisive second-half run,
as Richmond beat Prairie View 62-48 at the Colonial Classic on
Sunday.

Kevin Steenberge added 22 points and Richmond (4-2) bounced back
from a 19-point loss to Arkansas State on Saturday by racing by the
Panthers (1-4) in the second half.

Jeremy Wiley led Prairie View with 15 points, but the Panthers
couldn't sustain an early 14-point lead.

Richmond ended the first half with an 18-5 run and took control
early in the second half. Bucknor hit a 3-pointer to give the
Spiders the lead for good less than four minutes into the second
half.

The Classic concludes on Monday when Prairie View plays Arkansas
State and the Spiders face No. 7 Louisville.
