Brown slips past winless Bryant
Garrett Leffelman hit a last-second layup to lift Brown to a 70-68 victory over Bryant yesterday in Smithfield, R.I., as the Bears denied the Bulldogs their first win of the season.
Matt Mullery’s free throw gave Brown (3-3) a 68-63 lead with 1:41 left. Adam Parzych then hit two free throws for Bryant and Nick Pontes tied the score on a 3-point play with 40 seconds on the clock.
Brown held the ball until six seconds remained, then missed two shots. Leffelman scored off an offensive rebound and was fouled on the play, but missed both of his free throws.
Bryant (0-5) jumped out to an 19-5 lead and led, 38-28, at halftime. The Bears used an 11-0 run to pull ahead, 55-52, and stretched the lead to 9, but Bulldogs tied it again with a 10-1 run.
