LEWISTON, N.Y. -- Anthony Myles and Zedric Sadler scored 20 points apiece to lead Rider University to a 90-78 win over Niagara University on Sunday.

Battling back in the first half to take a 44-41 advantage into the break, Rider (8-7, 4-2 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) took control with an 18-7 run early in the second half capped by a Myles 3-pointer that made it 62-48 with 13:10 to play. The Broncs held off Niagara down the stretch to cinch the win.

Jimmie Taylor contributed 15 points and Daniel Stewart added 14 plus seven rebounds for Rider, which shot 55 percent from the field and was 10 of 20 from 3-point range.

Niagara (4-13, 1-5) drew to within six points late in the game, sinking seven unanswered points to make it 81-75 with 1:12 to go, but couldn't close the gap.

Antoine Mason, the NCAA's top scorer, led Niagara with 26 points.
