MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. (AP) — Fairleigh Dickinson’s last-gasp shot appeared to have been partially blocked, but Kaleb Bishop leapt for the putback and the Knights upset Northeast Conference leader Robert Morris 72-71 on Saturday.
Robert Morris, which had won six in a row, grabbed a 71-70 lead on a pair of free throws with 8.4 seconds on the clock. FDU’s Jahlil Jenkins drove into the paint but his stair-stepper was well short of the hoop as it appeared a defender got a hand on it. The ball was batted off the glass in the scrum under the basket and Bishop sprang for it and dropped it through for the game-winner with 1.2 seconds on the clock.
Jenkins finished with 21 points, three assists and two steals for the Knights (8-16, 6-7), while Bishop scored 11 with six rebounds. Elyjah Williams scored 14 and Xzavier Malone 12. Williams added seven boards.
AJ Bramah, who gave Robert Morris its final lead, led the Colonials (15-12, 11-3) with 17 points, including a perfect 7-for-7 at the free throw line. Charles Bain and Yannis Mendy each added 10 points.
Fairleigh Dickinson plays Central Connecticut on the road on Tuesday. Robert Morris faces St. Francis (Pa.) on the road on Tuesday.
