    St. Bonaventure, coming off a 76-68 overtime loss to Virginia Tech, led 39-32 with 18:12 to go. The Saints (4-7) then used a 23-7 run, sparked by Rakeem Brookins' 3-pointer and including five other 3s, to take a nine-point lead, 55-46, with 10:26 left.

    The Bonnies pulled ahead 62-61 as Davenport hit a 3-pointer, and he scored five more points en route to a seven-point cushion with 2:36 to go.
