Williams Hits Buzzer Beater, RMU Beats YSU

Youngstown, Ohio (AP) — Coron Williams hit a game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer to lift Robert Morris to a 59-56 win over Youngstown State on Thursday night for the Colonials’ third straight win.

The shot capped a 6-0 Robert Morris (10-3) run in the game’s final 40 seconds to seal the comeback victory.

After an Ashen Ward free throw put Youngstown State up 56-53 with 53 seconds remaining, Anthony Myers knocked down a game-tying 3 the next time down the court. That set up Williams’ dramatic buzzer-beater.

Both big Colonials shots in the final minute were assisted by Velton Jones, who led the team with 15 points and six assists.

Williams, who hit four 3-pointers in the game, was the only other Colonials player with double figures, scoring 14 points.

Kendrick Perry scored a game-high 18 points to lead the Penguins (6-6), who have lost a season-high four consecutive games.
