    WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. -- Russell Johnson's jump shot with 2 seconds to go gave Robert Morris a 62-60 win over Monmouth (N.J.) on Saturday night.

    Robert Morris took a three-point lead, 60-57, on Lijah Thompson's dunk with 2:14 to play. Both teams then turned it over two times each before Monmouth's Jesse Steele made a three-point play to tie it at 60 with 32 seconds left.

    The Colonials shot just 35.7 percent in the second half (10 of 28), but outrebounded the Hawks 23-13 and got 13 points from Coron Williams in the final 20 minutes.
