NEW BRITAIN, Conn. -- Kyle Vinales scored a game-high 30 points to lead Central Connecticut State past Wagner 73-66 Thursday night in a Northeast conference matchup.

After Kenneth Ortiz's 3-pointer cut the Blue Devils lead to 53-51 at the 8:02 mark, Vinales scored the next four points, sparking an 11-6 run to go up 64-57 with under 3 minutes to play.

The Blue Devils made seven free throws in the final 1:04 to seal the victory.
