The Colonials (12-9, 7-1 Northeast Conference), who have won four straight, had let a 12-point lead midway through the second half slip down to 47-45 when Wagner's Elijah Davis made a pair of free throws with 1:32 to play. Williams knocked down his late-in-the-shot clock jumper with a minute to go, Josh Williams then made four-straight free throws and Matty McConnell made four straight.

Romone Saunders scored 16 points for the Seahawks (9-10, 4-4), including three free throws and a 3-pointer in the last 10 seconds to force RMU to make free throws.
