    LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. -- Anthony Myles scored 23 points and Jonathon Thompson added 18 as Rider defeated Niagara 72-69 Thursday night, handing the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference leader its second straight loss.

    Daniel Stewart added 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Broncs (13-12, 8-5), who trailed 30-26 at halftime but took a 33-32 lead on Nurideen Lindsey's layup with 16:49 remaining.

    Rider led the rest of the way, though never by more than 10 points. Thompson made 4 of 6 free throws in the final 24 seconds.

    Myles, who tied his career scoring high, also grabbed seven rebounds for Rider.
