    SMITHFIELD, R.I. -- Karvel Anderson scored 24 points and Lucky Jones scored 14 of his 17 points in the second half as Robert Morris beat Bryant 77-75 Thursday night to clinch the Northeast Conference regular-season title.

    The Colonials (21-9, 13-4), who have won four straight, will play at home in the conference tournament as long as they continue winning.

    Jones' 3-pointer gave Robert Morris a 60-59 lead with 5:46 remaining, and he scored another 10 points the rest of the way. Velton Jones added 12 points.

    The Colonials committed one turnover in the second half to Bryant's nine, helping them overcome 68.4 percent second-half shooting (13 of 19) by the Bulldogs (18-10, 11-6).

    Alex Francis, who led Bryant with 22 points and 11 rebounds, scored 14 first-half points as Bryant took a 37-31 lead.

    Frankie Dobbs scored 18 points and Dyami Sparks 17 for Bryant, which beat Robert Morris 84-77 on Jan. 3.
