    LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. -- Brandon Penn scored 12 points on 3 of 4 from 3-point range in Rider's 61-50 win over Niagara on Sunday.

    Penn made three more 3-pointers than the entire Niagara team, which went 0-17 from long range. The Purple Eagles (6-21, 3-12 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) shot 25.4 percent from the field (15 of 59), making 35.7 percent (15 of 42) of their 2-pointers.

    After trailing 28-23 at halftime, Niagara tied it at 32 on Kashief Edwards' layup with 14:24 remaining. The Broncs (18-9, 10-5) answered with a 14-4 run to lead 46-36 on Penn's 3 with 8:46 to play. The Purple Eagles would get no closer than nine points the rest of the way.

    Justin Robinson added 11 points and Mike Ringgold had 10 points and 11 rebounds for the Broncs.

    The win puts Rider back into a tie for second place in the conference with Saint Peter's.

    Edwards led Niagara with 21 points and 15 rebounds.
